**Years ago, The Avengers reached a turning point in their history with a roster full of underdogs and unknowns: hot-tempered archer Hawkeye, troubled lovers Goliath and Wasp, mysterious warrior monarch Black Panther, and the team's strange new android recruit, the vision. With the Panther juggling his kingly duties, Vision striving for public acceptance and overtaxed team leader Goliath quietly descending into madness, could these unlikely heroes stay together long enough to defeat the agents of A.I.M., the Circus of Crim and the Super-Adaptoid? Find out in a timeless tale of heroism!
Keeping the legend alive!
With Captain America, Iron Man and Thor all off active duty, are the Avengers still Earth's mightiest heroes? Swashbuckling archer Hawkeye, African warrior king Black Panther, and size-shifting sweethearts Goliath and the Wasp have done their best to live up to the original roster's legend -- but the authorities and the general public are skeptical, especialy after the team recruits its strangest member yet: the enigmatic android known as the Vision.
Can a mechanical man find a place among super heroes -- and even if he does, will the rest of humanity ever accept him? The Avengers are under the microscope as elite intelligence agency S.H.I.E.L.D. investigates the android, and Hawkeye's volatile romance with S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Black Widow may be a casualty of the rising tensions. Meanwhile, Black Panther tries to make a new life for himself in America, unaware that the dreaded Death Tiger is stalking him with murderous intent. And an even more dangerous enemy arises in the form of the Super-Adaptoid, a mechanical mimic who can use all of the Avengers' own powers against them.
As the pressure mounts, team leader Goliath starts to crack under the strain -- until his growing madness pushes his girlfriend Wasp into a whirlwind wedding with the dashing mystery man Yellowjacket. It's mind-boggling Marvel matrimony with a guest list including the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, Dr. Strange, the Black Knight, Nick Fury and the amazing Spider-Man! **Source: Dust Jacket
