The Avengers. It's what we call ourselves, sort of like a team. 'Earth's Mightiest Heroes' type of thing.

The Avengers were the brainchild of SHIELD Director Nicholas Fury, who envisioned a team that might work together as a response team in the event that a threat would prove so powerful that no single hero could face it alone. The catalysts for for this plan were the appearances of beings with personal levels of power that vastly exceeded conventional military capabilities. He named his plan the "Avenger Initiative".

The Avengers formed gradually through circumstance and reactive planning. Fury initially considered Tony Stark for a role on the team, but discarded this idea due to Stark's unpredictable nature. Eventually, the plan was scrapped altogether and Fury refocused his attention on military assets in the hands of SHIELD instead. However, circumstances proved to be the guiding force that brought the disparate members of the team together when Loki made a surprise appearance at a SHIELD research facility, killed a number of soldiers, and escaped with Agent Barton and Professor Selvig under his control, taking the Tesseract with him. The Avengers succeeded in stopping Loki and his alien invasion. The group disbanded soon after, but would reassemble later and become an independent entity from SHIELD.
