Avengers Collection

Famous for the battle cry "Avengers Assemble!", the Avengers safeguard the planet from menaces too great for one hero, or one country to withstand.

Founded soon after the Fantastic Four, the Avengers became the first superhuman team to be granted government approval by the National Security Council of the United States and the General Assembly of the United Nations.

The team was formed by accident.  Loki, the Asgardian God of Mischief, tricked the Hulk into causing a train wreck to engineer a battle with his brother Thor, but the astonishing Ant-Man, the Wasp and Iron Man also responded.  After learning the Hulk was innocent, Ant-Man suggested that the heroes form a team.  The Wasp suggested they call themselves "something colourful and dramatic, like..the Avengers".

In The Avengers #4, the Avengers rescued Captain America, trapped in the Antarctic ice since the end of World War II.  A born leader, the living legend was given retroactive 'founding member' status in place of the Hulk (who had proven to be uncontrollable and left the team).
