The Avengers were introduced to Marvel Comics in 1963. Since then, they've changed not only the Marvel Universe but the face of superhero stories.

While their star dimmed in the '90s, as would everything at Marvel that wasn't X-Men or Spider-Man related, they'd come roaring back in the '00s. Their success would become a catalyst for Marvel's industry dominance.

This book by Lee and Kirby brought the legend back for a whole new generation of fans.

Cap's return changed the Marvel Universe forever. He became the superhero community's de facto leader, the shining example who all others looked up to. It's impossible to picture the modern Marvel Universe without him.
