Avengers Forever, by Busiek, Stern, Pacheco and Merino. Avengers Forever is both a greatest hits of the Avengers, and one of the most compelling, continuity-driven stories of all time. It managed to do something that I don’t think an Avengers book had ever done before, which was to give it the same sense of prestige and power as the Justice League has always had. It made the word Avengers mean so much more than what it meant previously, and, for me, was definitely the beginning of my love affair with the team.
