Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and Hulk, the Earth’s Mightiest Avengers beckon you to open the pages of this book. Perhaps as avengers they just might dare you to crack the pages and learn all about them. “You wouldn’t like me,” shouts Hulk, “when I’m angry!” Probably not, but you just might like to know more about the Hulk. Check it out!
Real Name: Bruce Banner
Powers: Incalculable strength, endurance, speed and healing ability
Secret Strength: Limitless power
Secret Weakness: Uncontrollable rage
Of course if you are an Avengers fan, you probably knew all of this already. I know I wouldn’t want to be in the Hulk’s way when that green humanoid was on a tear. Is that Thor? Better watch out because if he enters into a state of “Warrior Madness,” he could be big time trouble too.
This book is filled with more superheroes than you can shake a stick at (or maybe a hammer if you’re anything like Thor). Every page is a poster and there are nine supersize pullout posters that have an unforgettable wow factor. Perhaps if you’d like you can even put them all on your walls ... if you have enough space!
There are bios of the Avengers, incredible eye-popping poses, and great vignettes that let you know about those powers. For example, Iron Man's “Electroshock exit-charges zap villains who get too close. When the Mark 50 lights up, it’s lights out for evildoers!”
Of course collectors won’t touch a page of this incredible book, but young Avengers fans will have it apart in a minute scrambling for those pushpins or tape to fill up their walls. The high gloss pages are literally a work of art with wall-to-wall Avengers. This book is definitely a must have for all fans, especially those who need some Avenger wallpaper!
