I love the Avengers and this is perfect 4 me and my family
This is a collection of quite a few different takes on some classic Avengers' origins. A myriad of different writers and artists are involved but it makes for a disjointed collection. Overall, the book is decent as there are some high points, but there are some low points as well. The two standouts to me were the Ant-Man & Wasp Origins tale and the Vision story. Both chapters were so good because they involved takes on the characters/origins that were a new twist on what we've seen before. The painted chapters involving Cap and Hulk were very good as well. The others however were big letdowns. All were just rehashing what we've seen before. I liked the collections for the most part and would recommend it to Marvel zombies.
