Loved by old and young alike, Marvel's Super Hero team gathers the most popular characters to grace the comic book page, spanning from scientific genius and playboy billionaire Iron Man, Norse God Thor, patriotic Captain America to the scientific fury of the Hulk. Keeping true to its graphic art roots The Avengers Ultimate Guide to Earth's Mightiest Heroes explores the story of all the major characters including profiles, key issues, back stories, poers, allegiances and enemies. When did Iron Man grace the pages of Marvel for the first time? Who are the Hulk's famous sparring partners? Why was Thor banished from the kingdom of Asgard? These and many more facts and secrets await to be discovered...

The Avengers: The Ultimate Guide to Earth's Mightiest Heroes! is an essential guide for fans of the comic book universe.

Other than the sheer volume of facts and information gathered together in this book, the most impressive aspect is how much love has been poured into the layout. Rather than some bland template design reproduced over and over again the designer/s have approached each page as though it were a new project. It's pretty obvious that this is more than a book written to cash in on comic book fans, this is a labour of love by all involved.

This is a book to be cherished; a volume you can flick to any page and learn a little something you may not have known before. An indispensable book for serious comic book fans everywhere.
