The first in a series of all-new comic stories published directly in book form!

An abomination, long thought buried, has resurfaced in a war-torn land. But now it wears an American flag. Faced with another nightmare reborn, Captain America will not stand for yet more death at the hands of a ghost from his past. Haunted by his greatest shame, Thor must renew the hunt for a familiar beast. At their side, an assemblage of allies united to end the threats no one of them could face alone. They are soldiers. Warriors. Comrades-in-arms. Mighty heroes led by a living legend, stronger together than apart. They are the Avengers. Also includes exclusive AR video content, a free digital download of the book, and an introduction written by Agent Coulson himself Clark Gregg!

Ellis's surprisingly lightweight return to superhero work matches elements of the Avengers comics to the Avengers movie and comes up with an entertaining but plot-thin story aimed primarily at new readers. Taking the team from the movie and adding in Captain Marvel, the story pits the characters against two long-dormant threats, which mix Captain America's past with Thor's. Succeeding mainly due to Ellis's acerbic dialogue and characterizations, the plot features a tried-and-true method: a monster is sighted, the Avengers go fight it, Hulk appears, they fight and beat the monster. McKone's art never feels like a strong fit for Ellis's dyspeptic take on the Avengers brand, however; the former has a clean-cut and innocuous style that, at times, looks flat on the page and doesn't have a wow factor. The characters are all given something to do (and, for the most part, something to say)—Captain America's depressed mood throughout being notable—but this is a generally tension-free story with by-the-numbers fight sequences and predictable characters; new readers flocking from the movies may find it passes the time despite the lack of true bite. (Oct.)
