Avengers - east and west - assemble! That's right, in the epic buildup to AVENGERS #250, a whole new team of Avengers is born! But before that historic moment, the seeds for the series' anniversary extravaganza are sown in a team-up between the Avengers and the Eternals against the Inhuman-Deviant menace Maelstrom. Meanwhile in California, Hawkeye works to assemble a whole new branch of Earth's Mightiest Heroes! Avengers don't exactly grow on trees, but Hawkeye's West Coast Avengers soon build a scrappy roster that prevails over Goliath and Graviton - just in time to join their East Coast counterparts and save the world from a resurgent Maelstrom! Topping things off are the returns of Captain America, Hercules and the Black Knight, and the culmination of the Vision's plan for global…peace? Collecting AVENGERS (1963) #246-254, WEST COAST AVENGERS (1984) #1-4 and IRON MAN ANNUAL #7.
