Brought together to fight
the biggest menaces in the Marvel Universe, Iron Man, Thor, Giant-Man
and the Wasp represented the heavy-hitters of the super-hero set, but
Marvel heroes don't just hang out, they live, breathe, argue - and even
fall out. In an innovative twist that would come to define the
Avengers, Lee chose to have those original Avengers depart, leaving
Captain America alone to carry on.
But it was who replaced them that really got reader's attention.
Hawkeye, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch - all conflicted and
villains in their own right - became Cap's new recruits creating a
dynamic, unpredictable and exciting quartet that to many would become
the Avengers' heart and soul.
So sit and back enjoy the evolution of Earth's Mightiest Heroes as
they battle Kang the Conqueror, the Mole Man, the Red Ghost, Count
Nefaria, Baron Zemo's Masters of Evil, the Mandarin and the Swordsman.
With guest appearances by Spider-Man the Incredible Hulk himself, it's
a Marvel Masterwork from beginning to end! Collecting The Avengers issues #11 to 20, written by Stan Lee, pencilled by Don Heck, Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers, with a cover by Kirby and Dean White.
