This was a decent series of origins, apart from the Thor origin. Not all of the stories were "up to scratch" or very good when it came to story line, pacing, or illustrations.

Most stories in this collection are better than I expected. I'm not sure if there's anything monumental that you'll learn about the characters but it's worth an hour or two of your time to check these stories out.

A collection of one shots taking a new look at various Avengers in the dawn of their careers. As is usually the case with varying creative teams, some of the stories work better than others- the Vision, Captain America, or Thor stories, for instance. Others, not so much: the Luke Cage tale isn't up to the same level as the others, but the character himself doesn't particularly fit in these circles to begin with.
