In preparation for the upcoming Avengers Assemble movie, the cinema high-spot of the year, I'm reading a stack of old Marvel Avengers comics. I'm really enjoying them. So far there's epic battles with the mighty Magneto, the origin of the supercool Black Panther and major grouching at the X-Men.
Currently I'm reading about a new enemy, the Brain Leeches! Captain America is the new leader of the Avengers but he just can't shake his rivalry with Reed Richards, Mr. Fantastic. I'd forgotten how many 'gods' and 'demigods' there were in comics. The Avengers are sprinkled with dieties like Eros, Thor [of course] and Gilgamesh [pictured: Marvel], who I had to look up on Wiki! I'm sure there'll be many more [?].
