One thought on “Avengers: The Origin”

  1. Phil Noto's art is great here, and helps make what is another retelling of the Avengers Origin a fun read. Especially since he keeps all the costume designs from the 60's.

  2. Avengers: The Origin is another reboot/update of a classic superhero comic. It came out as a five-issue series in 2010, probably in anticipation of the release of Joss Whedon's [Marvel's] The Avengers [Assemble] movie. This graphic novel also tells the story of how the Avengers first formed, but is more of a throw-back to the comic book origin than a follow-on to a bunch of superhero movies.As in the movie, Loki is the main bad guy, though here he is merely trying to get revenge on Thor because [...]

  3. The revisionist, modernized origin story has become a recurring staple of the super-hero genre ever since John Byrne relaunched Superman to great acclaim back in 1986. For the most part, however, the only thing that's been updated in this retelling of the first Avengers story is the dialogue - other than that, it's pretty much a straightforward retread of the 1963 Lee/Kirby AVENGERS #1. Loki tricks Thor, Iron Man, Ant-Man, and the Wasp into battling the Hulk; they eventually join forces and turn [...]

  4. The art work is fun and the writing is solid, but the entire book is unnecessary. And ill-conceived.An "update" of the Avengers' origin story, brought into the 21st Century -- Tony Stark has a bluetooth ear piece, Rick Jones and his gang use the internet rather than ham radios, etc. And yet, the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier is only in blueprint stage, the Hulk hides out in a travelling circus (as some sort of Ed Wood-esque "robot"), Wasp is more of a helpless sidekick constantly distracted by Thor a [...]

  5. Did you watch the Avengers that came out recently in theaters? Do you want to know how the group, the Avengers, was created or how the idea was formed? Then reading Avengers The Origin by Joe Casey is the book for you! Avengers The Origin is a graphic novel about the original members of the Avengers in the comic series. The book shows how the Avengers were assembled. The book also talks about the enemies of the Avengers, such as Thor’s step brother, Loki. Avengers The Origin is a classic and s [...]

  6. The origin story for the Avengers was pretty decent but I wouldn't call it amazing. The plot mostly revolves around Loki who is trying to get the attention of Thor so he can attempt to kill him. Loki enrages the Hulk who goes on a rampage and hooks up with a traveling circus (wut?).In the meantime, our heroes are becoming friends due to circumstances and realizing that alone they probably can't take on the Hulk but as a team they just might be able to. Iron Man, Ant Man, Wasp and Thor are the in [...]

  7. Does a reasonable job of updating the very dated but classic Avengers origin, but suffers from jumbling modern and vintage elements together.Having Golden Age style costumes like Iron Man's original armour and dated plot beats like Hulk disguised as a circus robot looked odd next to flatscreen TVs and an otherwise modern setting. Art is gorgeous, writing is decent, if it was just clearly placed either in the 60s or the 00s instead of some weird hybrid this could have been a really clever All Sta [...]

  8. This seems to be an adaptation of the original start of avengers. I didn't love it but I was able to read it. The story was good and I liked how the misunderstanding are believable for the most part. I think I liked hulk most of all the characters. It has the original story at the back of this book and I can't even read it, it's just not to my taste. So the adaptation did a good job at giving new readers an understanding of the origins of the avengers in comic books, without having to read the o [...]

  9. This book is a retelling of the first Avenger get together. Hulk, manipulated by Loki (Thor's evil brother), causes a ruckus and some Hulk supporters send out a call to the Fantastic Four. The call is intercepted by Iron Man, Ant Man and the Wasp. They have some much fun, they decide to form a team.With crisp, clean art this book should appeal to fans and new readers. The story line is based on the original story so it is aimed at a fairly young audience. NotesIncludes a reprint of Avengers #1Le [...]

  10. As if there weren’t enough “origin” tales, Marvel released another in this Avengers series from 2010. Joe Casey has always impressed me and his dialogue was fine here but because there was nothing earth-shatteringly new here, the plot was light. The star here was Phil Noto. His covers alone are almost worth the price. His interiors were very good but occasionally rushed. Overall this story is decent but completely unnecessary.

  11. The idea of retelling the Avengers origin story in the modern setting is excellent, and Joe Casey was handed this chance on a platter and totally screwed it up. It's even less engaging than the original, and Jan still comes off as the token female, there's no character development, and it completely lacks the sort of epic feel the Avengers coming together should have.The only plus is that Phil Noto's art is simple but lovely.

  12. Highly successful retelling of the Avengers' first and formative adventure. Joe Casey does a wonderful job of adapting the original story to modern sensibilities, while remaining very faithful to the source material. (And, in fact, he even references a few of the members' pre-Avenging adventures which the original did not!) And Phil Noto's art is skillful and gorgeous.

  13. Remake of a shitty story into less shitty story.Joey Casey vzal pitomoučké dvacetistránkové první číslo Avengers a roztáhl ho do pěti sešitů. Povedlo se mu vyplnit nějaká bílá místa (Hulk a cirkus), deklarovaná přidaná hodnota tu však není.Obrovská zbytečnost

  14. Maybe it's because my expectations were so low, but I thought this was pretty cool. Some parts were lame, but overall the artwork was nice, the characters were done interestingly enough, & it had its own middle-of-the-road-cool moments.

  15. Retelling of the Avengers Origin story - it's well told, well drawn, well paced but call me a traditionalist in that I liked the original origin story better and that distracted me from truly loving this book.

  16. It was a re-imaging of the Avengers Origin story. My only question is: Why? When did I know this book had no real potential? Probably when Hulk decided to hide out with a traveling circus under the coaxing of a bearded lady. WTF?????

  17. Like the art. Retelling of origin story is cool. Something familiar with a twist. Panels with prior Avenger story line intermixed. I liked it. Keep old fans recollecting ad new fans interested. Good start

  18. I actually liked the update, my only issue with it is I don't see how 50 years plus of Marvel history could have happened in say five years or so, which it would have had to if this reboot is the canon version of the Avengers story now.

  19. Very similiar to the original, it just took 6 issues instead of a couple. A few differences, like Rick and his friends using the internet not a radio, do update it. The artwork also will appeal to a more modern audience.

  20. A pretty good reworking of the origin of the Avengers, and Casey has some fun with the story in expanding it.

  21. 2.5Está bien que le dije al pibe del stand que me lo vendió que era una comic n00b y que necesitaba una recomendación. Pero no soy TAN n00b como para que valiera la pena leer esto.

  22. This was a decent re-imagining of the classic Avengers' first assembly. I enjoyed it, but there wasn't anything too amazing.

  23. This is a retelling of the Avengers beginning in modern times. Extra points for using their original costumes but otherwise the story is the same as the first one.
