Tackling Avengers Disassembled
I decided that since I’m reading through the Avengers Disassembled storyline as a personal project, I thought I’d put together a post that covers which issue and titles that covers. While I’ve read the issues from Marvel’s 1962 and a couple of other shorter events, this one is definitely the longest I’m gonna try to read so far.
From my understanding, Avengers Disassembled from 2004 is the template that Marvel has used since then for large cross-over events and it certainly seems to involve quite a few of Marvel’s characters. From what I can tell at this point, it’s got Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Ant Man, Wasp, Black Panther, Vision, Captain America, Falcon, Nick Fury, Human Torch, Mr. Fantastic, Thing, Storm, Cyclops, Invisible Girl, and I’m sure other main characters from the universe not to mention various other, non-main, heroes (for instance, it has almost everyone from Asgard).
And while heroes are only one side of the equation, there are plenty of bad guys too: the Queen, Loki, and Arsenal are the just main ones I’ve seen so far, but I’m sure there are more out there since I’m only about a quarter of the way through the story.
Avengers Disassembled Reading Order
One of the good things with Marvel is that each of these issues is available from Marvel Unlimited so with a free trial you should be able to read through the whole story. Personally, I think the cost of the subscription is worth it, but then I’m trying to read more comics this year.

I figure a the end of this story, I’ll know quite a bit more about the Marvel Universe and in particular, things that have happened since the turn of the century. It’ll also be a good beginning to continue with the “My Marvelous Year” project that Comic Book Herald has going on. I started up with them at year one, but couldn’t keep up – perhaps this is another chance to catch up – though, it’s a hell of a lot of reading.
