The Avengers were formed by Ant-Man, Wasp, Thor, Iron Man, and The Hulk (Captain America did not join until issue #4, although he is considered an honorary founding member). The team's constantly changing roster has brought many of the Marvel Universe heroes onboard, although the Avenger's original goal remains consistent: the Avengers fight the foes no single superhero can withstand — thus their famous battle cry, "Avengers Assemble!" The team has included non-powered humans, mutants, androids, robots, gods, aliens, supernatural beings, and even former super-villains.
