THE AVENGERS #1 (1963)

A God. A millionaire. A scientist. A boy-crazy chick. A Hulk. In their first issue, a ragtag band of unlikely mixers got together and fought the brother of one of their own. This iconic panel (above), of course, is the last one in the issue.

Lotsa folks forget that Janet Van Dyne, The Wasp, coined the team’s name. And she wasn’t even in the movie!

Creators: Stan Lee and Jack Kirby
