With End Game absolutely dominating the box office since opening night, the Avengers are at the forefront of everybody’s minds at the moment. And if you’re a die-hard Marvel fan, chances are you already know everything there is to know about the Avengers – unless it’s backstage gossip and behind the scenes info you didn’t know about, of course.
Don’t worry, because it’s all here – and if you’re still in mourning after End Game, maybe this will take your mind off the pain for a little while. You’re welcome.
1. Captain America Wasn’t Part Of The Original Team (Oh The Horror!!)
We know him as “The First Avenger” and pretty much the glue which holds the whole team together. We can’t even begin to imagine a life where the Cap isn’t part of the original Avengers line up.
But that’s exactly what happened in the Comic series: he didn’t actually join up until the fourth issue of The Avengers comic series.
2. The Avengers Was ONLY Created Because The First Issue Of Daredevil Was Delayed In Going To Print
When publishers realised the very first issue of Daredevil wasn’t going to be published in time, Stan Lee quickly suggested the idea of sticking a load of existing Marvel superheroes together and making a story out of it.
God bless you, Stan.
