The team currently consists of officially Iron Man and War Machine, while unofficially other members include Captain America, Black Widow, Rocket Raccoon, Hulk and Thor Odinson. The original team consisted of Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye in The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, and shifted when Tony Stark, Thor, Clint Barton, and Bruce Banner/Hulk left the team after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron. They were initially brought together by S.H.I.E.L.D. to combat Loki, Thor's adoptive brother. The team was initially formed by Nick Fury to \\"fight the battles that S.H.I.E.L.D. never could\\".
The Avengers were disbanded, due to the actions of Tony Stark; who betrayed his former team to enforce the Sokovia Accords, but a small group consisting of Captain America, Black Widow and Falcon continued to operate in the shadows.
As of Avengers: Infinity War, the Avengers have been reassembled by Steve, but many are left dead; as a result of Tony's reckless/selfish actions. On Earth, Shuri works hard to get the stone out while the Avengers and Wakanda's forces fend off the Outriders. Thanos' forces launch giant wheeled vehicles to decimate their forces, but the wheels are partly taken out by Wanda. Corvus then attacks Ayo and Shuri in an attempt to get the mind stone, killing two guards in the process and knocking Ayo and Shuri out. Vision then attacks Corvus. Sam sees this and alerts the team but he and Steve are attacked, preventing them from helping. Wanda goes to help, but is trapped by Proxima, who tries to kill her but is saved by Okoye and Natasha. Wanda then sends Proxima into a wheeled vehicle, splitting her into pieces. Bruce goes to help Vision but is attacked by Cull Obsidian. After failing to get help from Hulk, Bruce defeats and kills Cull. Vision meanwhile is nearly killed by Corvus but he's saved by Cap, who suddenly appears. Vision then stabs Corvus in the back with his own weapon. The Avengers were gathering the losses worldwide and realized Nick Fury's pager stopped working. Steve ordered it to be rebooted, however as they turn around they see Carol Danvers standing behind them, asking \\"where's Fury?\\"
Fury informs Stark that his Iron Man persona is assigned to the team, but due to certain conditions, Stark himself is deemed unsuitable. Stark agrees on the condition that Senator Stern present him and Col. Rhodes with their medals for bravery.
Nick Fury assembles the team when an unexpected threat associated with Thor's brother Loki and the Tesseract appears. The team initially have difficulty and refusal to obey each other; for example, Tony Stark is reluctant to working under the command of Captain America, Thor demands that Loki is his responsibility and the team is uncomfortable with the presence of Bruce Banner. When Loki attempts to destroy the team and promote his godlike supremacy to Earth in a public way, the Avengers depart from S.H.I.E.L.D.'s command and rally in defense of New York as it is invaded by the extraterrestrials known as the Chitauri. Captain America takes command of the team and they each work to suppress the invasion force. The Hulk beats Loki into submission and Iron Man sends a nuclear weapon fired by the World Security Council into the portal through which the aliens enter Earth and their fleet is destroyed, breaking the neural connection with their ground troops and instantly killing them. The team take Loki as their prisoner and Thor takes both Loki and the Tesseract back to Asgard. The team disbands but agrees to reassemble when another global threat requires their combined efforts.
The team was mentioned by Harold Hogan as the \\"Super Friends\\" and were mentioned once more by Harley Keener. The team was mentioned by Loki, who disguises himself as one of Thor's \\"new friends\\" Captain America.
The team are mentioned by the World Security Council and Wolfgang von Strucker. Several members, such as Tony, Bruce, and Steve, were targeted by Project Insight as potential threats to HYDRA and their new world order. Steve and Natasha, along with their allies Sam Wilson, Maria Hill, and Nick Fury, take down HYDRA, but also SHIELD as a result.
Back in New York at Avengers Tower, Tony began to unravel the mysteries of the sceptre. Tony and Bruce Banner discovered that its core held something akin to a powerful computer and deduced that HYDRA had been trying to use it to create artificial intelligence. With this knowledge he had the epiphany that he might be able to provide real adaptive thought to his Iron Legion in what he called his Ultron Program. He and Bruce then left J.A.R.V.I.S. to continue investigating while he rejoined his team for a night of celebration. The party was huge and the Avengers gathered many of their friends for the night. When the revelry had died down, and most of the guests had left, the remaining men took turns trying to lift Mjölnir. This activity was interrupted by the appearance of a wrecked Iron Legion drone. It quickly became apparent that this was being operated by a rogue artificial intelligence, and the name it claimed for itself was \\"Ultron\\". Ultron and a number of other Iron Legion drones, then attacked the small group. They rallied and beat it back, but not before one of the Iron Legion made off with the sceptre during the confusion. Thor promptly turned on Stark demanding to know why he had created such a thing, to which Tony pointed out that they needed a way to deal with threats on the scale of the Chitauri. The Avengers traced Ultron's movements to a salvage yard on the coast of Africa where Ulysses Klaue dealt in the lucrative end of black market trading. So began a three way battle between Klaue's men after Ultron severed his arm, the Avengers, and the Ultron Sentries. Ultron also had the advantage of the pair of enhanced that the Avengers had encountered in Sokovia, the siblings Wanda and Pietro Maximoff. Pietro's speed allowed him to devastate the ranks of Klaue's men, while Wanda ravaged the minds of the Avengers themselves. When she at last reached Banner, her illusions caused him to fly into a rage that he then directed towards the populace of Johannesburg, and then she Ultron and Pietro made their escape. With most of the Avengers out of action fighting their own inner demons, Tony was left to attend to the problem of a rampaging Hulk on his own. He asked Veronica, a shuttle that could deploy numerous pieces of a heavy duty Iron Man armor. Tony in the Hulkbuster Armor afforded him the physical power to subdue the Hulk, but the public relations damage had been done, leaving Bruce in a morose state. Clint Barton took the group to a safehouse to recover, soon revealing that it was actually his family home. There they met Nick Fury, who began reorienting their thinking and fomenting new strategic considerations within the shattered ranks. Banner and Romanoff had both been psychologically scarred by their encounter Wanda and contemplated simply leaving. Tensions ran high between Tony and Steve Rogers, and Thor had been given a glimpse of something very troubling and departed the group to investigate further.
When Henry Pym was debriefing Scott Lang about his mission, Scott remarked that they should call in the Avengers. Hank scoffed at the idea, claiming that they were probably too busy \\"dropping cities out of the sky\\". Later in order to ensure the accomplishment of the heist, Hank requires a device he had constructed for S.H.I.E.L.D. that lay in storage in what he knew to be an abandoned Stark Industries warehouse in Upstate New York. Ant-Man is sent in to retrieve the package only to make a unexpected discovery upon arrival that the warehouse had become the New Avengers Facility where he encounters Falcon and engages in battle against him, while managing to acquire the device. Wanda tries to contain the blast of the explosion by creating a energy shield and launching it into the sky. Unfortunately the blast goes off upon a nearby building killing innocent Wakandain representatives. As a result of this international incident. The Governments of the World issue a new mandate called the Sokovia Accords satiating governmental oversight over The Avengers. Former general Thaddeus Ross, now the Secretary of State visits the Avengers at their headquarters to deliver the accords to them and stipulates that either they sign or they retire. The Team is divided on the issue with both Tony and Steve on opposite side of disagreement regarding the ramification of the accords. Steve is against the accords because he feels this will infringe on the teams ability to be free to respond to crisis immediately. Tony is for the accords because he believes that they need to be put in check by accepting boundaries so they don't become as bad as the advisories they face. Spider-Man attempts to prove to Tony constantly that he is worthy of being an Avenger but ends up needlessly risking innocent lives and his own and thus he is denied membership. Later on, Peter proves himself to Tony and is offered a spot on the team and a room next to Vision, but he refuses, deciding to stay grounded until he is ready. Vision and Wanda wake to the stone trying to warn Vision of the danger. They are attacked in Scotland by Proxima Midnight and Corvus Glaive. Corvus stabs Vision and tries to remove the stone while Proxima tries to distract Wanda but Wanda is able to save Vision but they become cornered by the two. Suddenly, Steve appears with Sam and Natasha to save them. They greatly wound Corvus and disarm Proxima, forcing them to flee. Steve then decides to fly them back to the New Avengers facility. There they interrupt a meeting between Rhodey and Ross. Cap says they're here to fight after Earth loses its best defender. Ross orders Rhodes to arrest them but he doesn't. They meet up with Bruce to decide what to do. Vision wants to destroy the stone but Steve refuses. Bruce figures they might be able to save Vision and destroy the stone at once.
Meanwhile in space, Maw tortures Strange in order for him to give up the time stone. Peter tells Tony to blast the ship open so that it sucks Maw out, as he's too powerful to handle alone. This succeeds and they decide to take the fight to Thanos rather than going back to Earth to wait for him in order to surprise Thanos. Tony then knights Peter as an Avenger. They arrive on Titan, Thanos' homeworld. There, they are ambushed by the Guardians of the Galaxy; Peter Quill, Drax, and Mantis. After a standoff, they realize they're both there to defeat Thanos. The two groups decide to work together and form a plan. 22 days after the snap, Tony and Nebula are rescued by Carol from space. The Avengers notice that Thanos had used the stones again and they form a plan to go after him. Steve, Natasha, Rhodey, Thor, Bruce, Rocket, and Nebula travel to Thanos' planet. They find him unguarded and decide to ambush him. Carol, Bruce, and Rhodey pin Thanos down and Thor chops off Thanos' hand, revealing the gauntlet had no stones in it. Thanos reveals he destroyed the stones so that no one could undo what he did. He starts to apologize to Nebula but Thor decapitates him in anger and leaves, disappointed.
