Marvel fans know that the Avengers have had some amazing adventures, but few have lived up to the hype like these classic tales.

The Avengers are Earth's Mightiest Heroes and Marvel legends. The team hit hard from the beginning and stayed at the top of the company for years. While the '90s weren't the best for the team, in stories or sales, they came roaring back to the top of the heap in the '00s, dominating the publisher once again. Over the years, there have been some brilliant Avengers stories.

The Avengers have always boasted rosters of powerful heroes, but one roster was different from the rest. Norman Osborn's Dark Avengers recast villains in heroic mantles, with Akihiro, Venom, Bullseye, and Moonstone taking the identities of Wolverine, Spider-Man, Hawkeye, and Ms. Marvel, and Osborn repurposing StarkTech armor as the Iron Patriot. Rounding the team out was Ares, the Sentry, and Noh-Varr as Captain Marvel.

The team was introduced in Dark Avengers: Assemble, by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Mike Deodato Jr. That first story saw the group get used to being heroes before being called on to bail out Doctor Doom when Morgan Le Fay comes calling. Fans expected a lot from the book, and it stuck the landing completely.
