'The Avengers' Essential Reading: 10 Stories To Inform Your Movie Experience

Avengers Forever

In the late '90s, writer Kurt Busiek attempted to make sense of decades of messy continuity in the Avengers' history with this 12-issue series. The result is a wonderfully written story that actually serves as a great primer on the team's decades-long run, and clarifies some of the inconsistencies and loose threads that developed over the previous 35 years. While it can be a little daunting at first, Avengers Forever is the sort of project that goes a long way toward bringing readers up to speed with the team and its history, and also does a nice job of explaining who some of the important peripheral characters are that haven't popped up in the Marvel movies yet.
