From the far future comes Kang the Conqueror, destined to be one of the greatest and most persistent enemies the Avengers have ever known! The time-traveling tyrant is determined to name himself Kang the First, ruler of present-day Earth – and his incredible array of advanced technology will test Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, the Wasp and Giant-Man to their very limits! Can one of the earliest versions of the Avengers – along with their young allies, Rick Jones and the Teen Brigade – find a way to protect the present from this futuristic fiend? Or is Kang’s conquest inevitable? It’s one of the all-time great Marvel comic books, boldly re-presented in its original form, ads and all! Reprinting AVENGERS (1963) #8.
