Osvetnici, tim najmoćnijih superheroja na Zemlji, prvi put su se pojavili okupljeni zajedno u stripu Osvetnici, septembra 1963. godine u izdanju Marvel stripova. Strip su kreirali pisac Sten Li i crtač Džek Kirbi. Iako nemaju stalnu postavku junaka, slogan pod kojim se bore uvek je isti: „Nema tog zlikovca kojeg Osvetnici zajedno ne mogu da pobede.“

I collected comics from the early 60s...what is called the silver age of comics...(I mean I began in the early 60s). I had the Avengers from #4 on, then stopped collecting in the mid 70s. If you're a comic book person you know they got a lot darker at that time. a finical crisis I had to sell my collection. So, when I came across the Essential collections I was able to recover at least the stories. I went with 4 stars since they are in black and white, but still they're good.

So much o
I think this held up better than Golden Age Batman. I enjoyed it, though it's still kitschy of course, with plenty of unintentional hilarity. (Like how after Zemo sprays the city with super adhesive glue, the Wasp goes to find "Paste-Pot Pete" to save the day. Thank God for Paste-Pot Pete!) It is a LOT of comics and my interest waned toward the end--but maybe that's just because Iron Man and the Wasp both left the team halfway through. (Also the Hulk and Ant-Man, but I care less about them.)

Launched in September 1963, the Avengers were Marvel's answer to the Justice League. However, there were some marked differences from the Justice Leagues. For starters, neither of Marvel characters, Spider-man or the Fantastic Four found their way into the Avengers. Instead, the Avengers featured characters who didn't actually have their own comic book but shared their titles with other characters. The first line up included Iron Man from Tales of Suspense; Ant Man, the Wasp, and the Incredible ...more

I feel somewhat bad for writing this, considering how much i love silver age Marvel, but this book is not very good. Just overall in terms of story, and the art, it comes up laking. I was trying to figure out what this book seems to be missing and i think i know: there are no subplots. The gold standard for Marvel around this time would be Spider-Man, or the Fantastic Four, and the thing that makes them good is all the subplots going on. While an issue of either of those would advance the lifes ...more

Startet sehr langsam...

...und nimmt dann Fahrt auf. Band 1 der Essential Avengers ist für mich klar zweigeteilt: Der mühsame, extrem formelhafte und langweilige Beginn mit den Mitgliedern Iron Man, Thor und Giant Man... und dann, ab dem Punkt, in dem die Lineup wechselt, fangen dann auch die Geschichten an, Fahrt aufzunehmen und spannender zu werden.

Seltsam, denn eigentlich sind die Originalmitglieder an sich deutlich interessantere Charaktere - aber zuviele Köche verderben den Brei, und die Abs

Recommends it for: Fans of silver age comics
Man, a lot of folks I know who read comics look down on the 1960s stuff. But they're nuts. You want fun? You want high flown dialogue, loopy nicknames, epic battles, all bright but with just a bit of complexity, character conflict and such creeping in? With plenty of WTF moments and painfully dated gender roles and politics(okay, I may be one of the few that finds that part of amusing, but as time goes on we see the Wasp become a little more proactive)? Well, look no further. As a guy raised on ...more

Hark back to the glory days of the Marvel age. I enjoyed seeing the original Stan Lee comics and the basis for the popular movies. While I understand that the Avengers is a collection of heroes comeing together to fight bigger threats it felt like it was missing pieces of the story. I understand that this si due to each character having their own story arc and comic books but it made the whole collection feel a little disjointed.

Over a year and a half ago, I picked this book up to become better acquainted with the Avenger's origins before the movie came out. It was so mind-numbingly boring that I set it down a LOT. However, once the Avenger's line-up changed and all my fave heroes left, the book became tons more interesting. Hawkeye is my new favorite.

Reading the original 60s comics from a modern standpoint pretty much automatically leads to hilarity. The treatment of women is offensive (but I grind my teeth and say "1963! 1963!), there's a lot of (probably) unintentional homoeroticism, and comics have now evolved so far beyond this point, it is almost like reading a different medium. But still, fun, and worth it for the historical value.

Kolekcija od prve 24 epizode Osvetnika mi je donela mnogo radosti, ali ipak ne mogu, a da ne kazem da su ovi prvi crtezi i same price ipak mnogo u zaostatku za svojim modernim nastavcima tako da nema svrhe ocenjivati ovu kôlekciju, jer mislim da ta ocena kakva god bila ne bi u potpunosti bila tacna...

Jedno od boljih stvari Silver age superherojskog doba stripova. Iako su pune klasičnih stripovskih klišeja i jeftinih zapleta, imaju taj neki šarm šunda onog nevinog doba kad su stripovi uveseljavali generacije klinaca. Ocjena je više onako subjektivan izraz moje nostalgije.

A great peak at the past into issues that would otherwise be way out of my price range. The cheese factor is a bit much, but hey we are talking 40 years ago. It's any comic book reader's heritage.

Lots of silly writing (Including The Wasp going to powder her nose in the middle of a fight) which I think just adds to the appeal
