It was the Micheal saga that got me into comics and remained at the top of my all time favorite runs but recently I've really enjoyed Roger Stern and the Masters of Evil run that I liked the best.

For me its definately the Stern + Buscema run, the entire thing. Well if you just ignore the Beyonder being there, which it seems we can now!

Favorite Avengers story would be the break into the mansion by the MoE's and the beating of Jarvis.

I also loved the Master's evil story, and the trip into Hades. Also the Bob Harras, Steve Epting run from about 343 to 375 was excellent as well.

No one was ever better on Buscema than Palmer. they were the team supreme. And what a long run! #255 to #302, almost 50 issues!Applause
One of the stupidest things Grunwald ever did was let Stern go! D'oh

I loved Avengers from the point where Palmer started. I also greatly enjoyed the Masters of Evil story, the battle with Zeus, and Dr. Druid taking over the team.
I would say those are my favorites but Avengers volume 3 was a great series with Perez. Just great stuff all the way around.

What about the Roy Thomas and John Buscema run.
They single handedly created the Vision, Yellow Jacket, the Grimm Reaper, Ultron, The Squadron Supreme, the Grand Master, and the Invaders. And wrote epics like the Kree Skrull war.
Personally issue #58, the 2nd appearance of the Vision, "even an android can cry", Is one of my all time favorite single issue of any comic. The art is poetic and the story is heart felt.Applause

It's been a long time...don't remember the issue numbers but back in the late 70's/early 80's there was a great storyline involving Yellowjacket getting demoted by Captain America. In retaliation YJ builds a robot that only he can stop and has it attack the Avengers...his plan being he'll be the big hero and get his position back.

Of course it backfires and Wasp ends up being the one to stop it. The gang finds out what YJ did and court-martials him. I think that was the last we saw of Hank Pym in the Avengers until years later when he started working for them as a weapons builder.

Like I say...it's been awhile. some of my facts may not be exactly right. But it was when I was just getting into the Avengers as a teenager and I always remembered it being a great story.

The Yellow jacket Court martial happened in #213, and the stoy line continued intermittently through #230.
It was started by Jim Shooter and finished by Roger Stern.
I always liked Jim Shooters plots. He has a way of bringing a large scale to the things he writes like secret wars.
I like Jim's work, but I hate the fact that he retired my favorite character for a number of years. D'oh
And a little later my other favorite Avenger was retired, the Vision.
And replaced with the Black Knight, Captain Marvel, and Starfox.Boo Hoo!
But Stern is a great writer.

Some great storylines have come out of Avengers runs......like someone said Vol. 3 Perez/Busiek was all great stuff.

Characters like Starfox, I think, needed to be shown off a little more.

AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!
I have loved the Avengers (and the west coasters too!) far longer than I can rememeber. My favoite storylines would be the "Under Seige" storyline where the MOE route our heroes and destroy the mansion and cause a team change in membership. The follow up in Olympus was spectacular as well! I remember reading it and thinking the Avengers were hosed this time!
The story of the Avengers, Captain Mar-Vell and Adam Warlock trying to stop Thanos from causing the sun to go nova was classic as well! And the "Avengers Forever" comic was awesome!! A lot of weirdness from the Avengers past was righted out, like the awful "The Crossing"...Pee-Yew!
One thing that always bothered me thou, was how the X-Men were quick to copy the Avengers by releasing the limited series "X-Men Forever". What, the X-Men can't sell their own comics without stealing something successful from the Avengers? That just chaffed my @$$...

I had never read any Anvengers, but I just got the first 5 parts to Operation:Galactic Storm and I am really enjoying that. I also like the current Mighty Avengers, it's really good!

I second that. That's the storyline that got me into the Avengers.
