AVENGERS (1963) (#1-402) (MARVEL) #8 - Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Avengers #8
This is one that started it all! Kang, the immortal villain of Avengers Forever and the once and future arch-nemesis of Earth's Mightiest Heroes bursts onto into the Marvel Universe! From the daring minds of Stan "The Man" Lee and Jack "The King" Kirby leaps Kang--a conqueror who strode across the centuries to menace our time.

Against him stand five champions--Thor, the God of Thunder, armed with his Uru hammer; the technological marvel Iron Man; the size-changing Giant Man and the lovely Wasp; and the star-spangled hero of World War II, Captain America! But can even their combined might stave off Kang, who masters time itself?

Kirby fans can find quite a lot to like about Avengers #8 as the artist begins to push the envelope of his singular style-giving early glimpses of the wondrous visions of his out-of-this-world Fantastic Four and Fourth World yet to come. As Kang's plots against the Avengers continue today in that group's regular title, this premiere offers a piece of the history--the fabric of the Marvel Universe.
