The Best Avengers Comics To Start With

The Avengers is one of the most popular and beloved superheroes team in Comic Book history. It has been around for more than 50 years. Although it was started by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, it has also been written by some of the biggest writers in comics. This includes Jim Shooter, Roy Thomas, David Michelinie, Roger Stern, and many others. Despite all these writers writing for the Avengers, we still have a lot of questions: Which comics are worth reading from start to end? What storylines do we need to read to understand what’s happening now?

The Avengers comics are one of the best selling comic book series of all time, so it is no surprise that Marvel have released a new Avenger movie. Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye and Iron Man are back taking on new villains and protecting the innocent. This is great news for fans of the superhero to go and enjoy the latest movie releases. However, some may not be aware of where to start if they are new to the Avengers storyline. It can be tricky knowing what to choose because there are so many options available. In order to help you decide which stories would be best for you, we have put together a list of some of our favourites from over the years that feature The Avengers.

Avengers Epic Collection: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes

There are many reasons why the Avengers are the best comic book team in history. Sure, there’s the story itself, which is classic superhero fare with plenty of twists and turns – but there’s also the fact that they’re an eclectic bunch with backgrounds and interests completely out of sync with each other. Sure, they might work together (most of the time), but there’s also a mystical nature to their relationship that works hand in hand with their sense of justice.

The Avengers Epic Collection: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes is the collection where it all began, all the way back to 1963. It compiles the first 20 issues of the series. Enjoy 456 pages of Avengers goodness by the masters themselves Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

Uncanny Avengers

When it comes to comic book reading, it’s hard to top the Uncanny Avengers. Uncanny’s one-shot series featured classic Avengers characters and their stories straight from the pages of their earliest adventures. From newcomer Iron Man to longtime Avenger Captain America, readers got to see their favorite heroes in action in ways they’d never seen before. Through it all, writer Rick Remender kept the story focused on current events while giving readers something they couldn’t get anywhere else.

What do you get when you combine the X-Men with the Avengers? That is right the Uncanny Avengers! In this issue,  Rogue, Scarlet Witch, Wolverine, Captain America, Havok and Thor team up after the death of Professor X to battle the Red Skull

There have been many iterations of the superhero team, with each team trying to be the best it can be. In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in the classic comic book characters. When the characters return to the big screen, there’s no question which side fans fall on. The Avengers Civil War is among the most-anticipated stories and now film of all time and it looks like there’ll be plenty of superheroes to choose from.

New Avengers: Breakout

There’s never been a better time to become an Avengers fan. You have comics, omnibuses, movies, tv series,… It can be hard to pick what you should start with. But if you want to start somewhere the New Avengers: Breakout is a great place to begin as it has probably brought together the most popular comic book superheroes from Marvel in one place.

The New Avengers is my most favorite comic collection of this list. The reason for that is that in my opinion this is the coolest team out there. As Captain America assembles a new team with characters like  Iron Man, Spider-Man and Wolverine. They had me already when I saw this cover and they swept me away with the awesome story. But one thing is uncertain, are they good enough as a team? Because they are all strong individuals who have problems in teaming up.
