Comic Book: Avengers (1963 series)

What This Book is About:
Earth's mightiest heroes--Thor, Iron Man, Wasp, Giant Man, and the newly-revived Captain America--came together as the Avengers to battle threats that no one of them could handle alone. Soon joined by Hawkeye, the Scarlet Witch, the Vision, She-Hulk, the Beast and many, many, many others, the name of the Avengers would pass into legend as the greatest hero team ever (at least for Marvel).
