First appearance:

Avengers #1
Creators: Stan Lee, Jack Kirby

"And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth's mightiest heroes and heroines found themselves united against a common threat. On that day, the Avengers were born—to fight the foes no single super hero could withstand! Through the years, their roster has prospered, changing many times, their glory has never been denied! Heed the call, then—for now, the Avengers Assemble!"
— Prologue from The Avengers used in the 1970s

The Avengers (of Earth-616) is a team of superheroes that often band together to fight the threats that no one hero can handle alone.

The group made it's first appearance in Avengers #1.


In Avengers (Volume 1) #329 (Feb, 1991) Spider-Man joined as a reserve member. In the same issue, Sandman was seen helping them while disolving ties in Amazing Spider-Man (Volume 2) #4 (1999).

Splinter Teams





  • Each teammates' arsenal


  • The first time the famous Avengers' catchphrase "Avengers Assemble!" was said was in Avengers #14 by Thor and has mostly appeared in Marvel media ever since.
  • The Avengers were created by Stan Lee to draw attention from DC's Justice League.
  • The Avengers were parodied by DC Comics in Superman/Batman series in the storyline With a Vengeance!, where the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel faced heroes created by Mr. Mxyzptlk called The Maximums, who were formed by Soldier (a patriotic hero, counterpart of Captain America), Viking (a nordic God, counterpart of Thor), Hornet (a half-human half-insect flying heroine, counterpart of Wasp), Skycraper (a giant man in love with Hornet, counterpart of Giant Man), Robot (a conscious robot, counterpart of Iron Man), Bowman (an archer, counterpart of Hawkeye), Wolfen (a bestial wolfman with tiger stripes, counterpart of Wolverine), Bug (a blue and red four-armed man, counterpart of Spider-Man) and Monster (a big creature with super-strength and ripped pants whose alter ego is weaker, counterpart of Hulk).
  • Although this is very rarely remembered, the team's technical founder was Hank Pym/Ant-Man, as he is the one who suggested that they team up.
