* AdaptationalBadass: ''ComicBook/TheUltimates'', ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' and the film all took some bits of those early issues. The animated series is the closest one. Same original line-up, organized by circumstances, and the name is the Wasp's initiative. The villain makes them fight against Hulk, who leaves the team in disgust. Captain America, who was frozen in the artic after WWII, is freed and found by the Avengers, who make him their new member.

* CutLexLuthorACheck: Count Nefaria, one of the wealthiest men in the world, in angry because the Avengers foiled his henchmen from stealing some furs, so he arranged a complex plan to defeat them... which included moving his whole castle, stone by stone, from Europe to the US.

* EasilyThwartedAlienInvasion: The Space Phantom. Why send a single alien, and not a whole army? OR, if it's too expensive, why not simply 5 Space Phantoms, and have each one replace each Avenger on a single stroke? Yes, Thor would resist, but then it would be him against "phantomed" Hulk, Iron Man, Giant Man and the Wasp. Well, ok, Hulk, Iron Man and Giant Man, and without the Wasp's interference...

** When Immortus summoned historical people to fight against the Avengers, he summoned Hercules against Thor. Some time afterwards, Hercules was created as a steady Marvel character, and beared little resemblance with this early appearence. Kurt Busiek would recon it as a Space Phantom disguised as Hercules.

* RefusedByTheCall: Rick Jones, a mere teenager with no powers, thought that he could be in the same team with an Asgardian God, a science genious with a battle armor, another science genious and his assistant who can change their size, and a World War II living legend. Good luck! He couldn't even become Captain America's sidekick.
