The Avengers (Marvel Deutschland)

    (Marvel Deutschland, 1999)
™ and ©1999 Marvel Deutschland

The early 1960s saw the birth of the Marvel Age of Comics—the Fantastic Four, the amazing Spider-Man, the uncanny X-Men, and, of course, the mighty Avengers, who debuted in their own title in September 1963.

Tricked by the evil god Loki into believing that the incredible Hulk has gone on yet another rampage, early Marvel stalwarts Thor, Iron Man, Ant-Man, and the Wasp join forces to bring the Green-Skinned Goliath to justice. After the inevitable super-powered skirmish (at a circus where the Hulk is hiding out as a clown-faced robot, no less!), Earth’s Mightiest Heroes get things sorted out. They take on Loki and form one of the greatest super-teams in comic book history—the Avengers, whose ranks will boast the best and the brightest of the Marvel Universe.

This 1999 German replica edition reprints the first issue of The Avengers in its entirety, along with several vintage ad pages from the 1960s and 1970s.
