Avengers Omnibus Vol. 5 continues Englehart’s dramatic stories, adding key elements to the Avengers mythos with “The Celestial Madonna” and “The Phantom Empire/Serpent Crown” storylines leading the way. The new collections also includes the Avengers’ first conflict with Thanos, two superhero weddings, and the introduction of new members such as the blue, furry Beast, Hellcat and Moondragon.
Volume 5 also features all of the original letters pages that continued the conversation about the Avengers, long before the advent of computer message boards.

The latest Omnibus is also available with a classic cover by Gil Kane or Rich Buckler.
