About The Avengers

The Avengers was an original creation of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby that first appeared in a comic book released in September 1963. The group, comprised initially of five Marvel characters, is considered to be “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.” Captain America and others joined the elite group shortly after to face adversaries collectively that individual superheroes couldn’t defeat alone. The team has since appeared in comic books, television series, and now movies focused on the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In 2012, Disney’s Marvel Studios released a film about this Marvel Comics superhero team, the Avengers, that became one of the highest-grossing movies of all-time. The original members of the Avengers, in the film, consisted of Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, and Hawkeye. However, many other superheroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe have since joined the team to appear in the sequels Avengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.
