Nick Fury is the director of S.H.I.E.L.D, a law enforcement and espionage agency that deals with threats that can be perceived as superhuman. One such threat is made known to him one day, when an unexpected enemy targets global security and safety. Nick decides to assemble a team of the world's strongest superheroes to tackle this problem and starts looking all across the globe.
Soon enough, he has his team: Tony Stark; Steve Rogers; Bruce Banner and Natasha Romanoff, or, as they are respectively known: Iron Man; Captain America; Hulk and the Black Widow. Nick also recruits two Norse Gods: Loki and Thor.
Initially, the team of superheroes do not get along, with Tony even insisting he works alone. But as New York is subjected to a series of increasingly devastating disasters, the fate of Planet Earth hangs in the balance and it is up to the band of superheroes - who call themselves The Avengers - to save it.
