Brought together by comics icons Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the Avengers are the super-team to beat all super-teams! Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Ant-Man, Wasp, and the Hulk were the first, but many heroes have served since then. This is your definitive guide to the greatest Avengers moments! © MARVEL
Iron Man! Thor! The Hulk! Wasp! Ant-Man! These five iconic characters made their debut as the first incarnation of the most exciting super-team ever assembled in September 1963, in The Avengers No. 1. From Captain America to Black Panther to Beast and Mockingbird and She-Hulk, they gained and lost members, added former super villains to the team, and fought every threat imaginable—each one bigger than the last. From the West Coast to the Secret teams (not to mention the Dark and Young and Mighty and All-New), The Little Book of Avengers by Roy Thomas is your definitive guide to the greatest super hero team the world has ever seen! © MARVEL
