The Avengers Issue #1

The Avengers first formed when the evil Norse god Loki tried to defeat his brother Thor by tricking him into fight another superhero. Using his illusion powers, Loki tricks the Hulk into destroying a train station and diverts a radio call by Rick Jones to Thor with the intend of asking for Thor's help. Instead, Iron Man, the Wasp, and Ant-Man pick up the signal. After the initial confusion, Thor realizes that due to the nature of his illusions, that Loki is responsible, and the heroes team up and defeat Loki. After deciding that they are a formidable force all together, they decide to form a team. The Wasp suggests "The Avengers" (mostly due to the aesthetic appeal) and the name stuck. Don't be confused with Avengers (Disambiguation).
