13 COVERS: The Heroes of THE AVENGERS

Avengers: Endgame is here. Let’s break out some comics!

Over the years, I’ve posted a bunch of 13 COVERS galleries highlighting the Avengers.

Makes sense, right? They’ve become pop culture’s preeminent super-team, thanks to the mega-success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

But with Avengers: Endgame here, what to do that’s new and different?

Well, you know how they’ve got all those individual character posters? Or how Entertainment Weekly put out a ton of covers, each with a different hero?

That’s what we’re gonna do here, in a fashion — 13 COVERS culled from The Avengers in the Silver and Bronze Ages, each one spotlighting a different character. (Well, mostly. I cheated a few times. You’ll see.)

And so… AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!
