The Avengers are a group of fictional superheroes, appearing in comic books that made their debut in September of 1963. They were created by highly successful writer/artist team of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

It was when the Asgardian god Loki is seeking revenge against his brother Thor backfires; his machinations unwittingly lead teenager Rick Jones to collect Ant-Man, the Wasp, and Iron Man to help Thor and the Hulk, whom Loki used as a pawn. After the group vanquished Loki, Ant-Man stated that the five worked well together and suggested they form a team; and the Wasp named that team the Avengers.
The line-up, however changed almost immediately, at the beginning of the second issue, Ant-Man became Giant-Man, and at the end of the issue, the Hulk left once he realized how much the others feared his unstable personality. In issue #4 the team reached a major milestone, with the revival and return of Captain America.
Captain America joined the team, and he was given founding member status in the Hulk's place as part of the core team.
The next milestone came when all the superheroes but Captain America resigned and were replaced by three former villains Hawkeye, the Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver. Giant-Man began calling himself Goliath, and the Wasp rejoined the Core Team. Hercules became part of the team, while the Black Knight, and the Black Widow, assisted the Avengers they did not become members until years later.
