The Avengers are a fictional team of superheroes appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Labeled “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes”, the Avengers originally consisted of Ant-Man, the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, and the Wasp. Ant-Man had become Giant-Man by issue #2. The original Captain America was discovered trapped in ice in issue #4, and joined the group after they revived him. A rotating roster became a hallmark of the series, although one theme remained consistent: the Avengers fight “the foes no single superhero can withstand.” The team, famous for its battle cry of “Avengers Assemble!”, has featured humans, mutants, Inhumans, androids, aliens, supernatural beings, and even former villains.
The team has appeared in a wide variety of media outside of comic books including a number of different animated television series and direct-to-video films. The films have been in production since 2007, and in that time Marvel Studios has produced 17 films, with 9 more in various stages of production. The series collectively has grossed over $12.6 billion at the global box office, making it the highest-grossing film franchise of all time.
