The Avengers are a fictional team of superheroes who first appeared in Marvel Comics The Avengers #1 in 1963. This team was introduced as as a replacement to another superhero team called All-Winners Squad which first appeared in 1946. The original team members were Ant-Man, the Hulk, Thor, the Wasp and Iron Man and were known for shouting "Avengers Assemble!" before going into battle.
By the 111th issue the team had grown to include all types of life forms including aliens, Inhumans, androids, mutants, humans and former bad guys, some of which include Hawkeye, Captain America, Scarlet Witch, Ultron and Black Widow, all of whom appear in the films.
The comic book series was adapted into a film called The Avengers in 2012, then the Avengers: Age of Ultron 2015 and Avengers: Infinity War in 2018. There was also Captain America: Civil War, which was an "unofficial" Avengers flick. The film series was one of the most successful of its kind not only because it was a superhero movie but because it brought some extremely popular characters to life.
