Created by John Byrne in 1989 in the West Coast Avengers comics series as comic relief, the Great Lakes Avengers have bounced around the Marvel Universe in different forms ever since. From emulating other teams like the Thunderbolts and the X-Men to eventually becoming a government-sanctioned superhero team after the first Civil War, the Great Lakes Avengers have always been great fun, and now they’re getting their shot at being real Avengers. More after the jump!
