The second Avengers team was created on Avengers Nº 17. Stan Lee wanted to get rid of the similarity with the Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}}, and removed Thor, Iron Man, Giant Man and the Wasp from the team, all of them with their own comic books, and replaced them with Hawkeye, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. Captain America stayed, hence this incarnation became known as "Cap's Kooky Quartet". They had minor powers in comparison, and the 3 were former super villains: Hawkeye from Iron Man, and the others from the X-Men.

The series introduced as well Jarvis, the Swordsman, the first Power Man (Erik Josten, who would later become known as Atlas; not Luke Cage) and Kang's lover Ravonna, among others.

* BolivianArmyEnding: The end of the adventure with Kang. The Avengers, taken to the XXX century, were allowed to return to their original timeline. They were in the machine, already vanishing, when Captain America warned Kang that the assassin Baltag was [[RightBehindMe right behind him]]. He fired at Kang, Ravonna took the bullet, Baltag was executed right away... and the Avengers returned to the XX century, without knowing (for several months, at least) if Ravonna had died saving Kang or not.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Rick Jones and his "teen brigade". We saw him at the first issue, upset because he had been waiting to be an Avenger for some months to no avail, and those 3 guys became Avengers just like that. And we did not saw him anymore in the Avengers until the Kree-Skrull War, several years afterwards.
* DamselOutOfDistress: The commissar captured the Scarlet Witch and held her hostage, while forcing the Avengers to fight against him. Captain America, Hawkeye and Quicksilver were all defeated. And then... Captain America requested him to free the Scarlet Witch and fight her as well. And being a [[DirtyCommunists Dirty Communist]], he WouldHitAGirl. But she defeated the commissar all by herself... [[spoiler:by proving that it was ActuallyADoombot]]

* HeelFaceTurn: The first case in the Avengers. Actually, they were not much "evil" to begin with: Hawkeye was mistaken as a villain, and Quicksilver & the Scarlet Witch were blackmailed by Magneto to work in his brotherhood of evil mutants, and left it at the first chance they got. Still, their villanous past would be mentioned several times along the years (a notable example was when the ComicBook/{{Thunderbolts}} appeared), and open the path for several other former villains who would become Avengers.

* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Kang loves Ravonna, and after conquering her city he orders to prepare a royal wedding. Kang's lieutenant reminded him of the rules: the deposed royals must be executed immediatly, to prevent rebellions. But Kang himself designed that law, and his rule is absolute: so screw the rules!

* WithAFootOnTheBus: Power Man and the Enchantress managed to turn the Avengers into [[HeroWithBadPublicity heroes with bad publicity]]. Captain America managed to clean their names; and then retired. He gave up his Captain America identity, and started a new life as a boxer... which lasted for just some pages. When he heared in the radio that the Avengers had been kidnapped by Kang, [[AchillesInHisTent he took the shield again and headed to the battle without a second thought]].

* SingleStrokeBattle: Captain America retired from the Avengers, and began a boxing career. But when he heard in the radio that the Avengers were captured by Kang, he gave it up and returned to help. Problem is, the champion did not allow him to interrupt the box fight just like that... so Steve Rogers took him down with a single megaton punch.

* StormingTheCastle: Justified in-story. When he refused to execute Ravonna, Kang's army turned against him. Alone against a whole army, he freed the Avengers and some other prisoners to save Ravonna. The army was powerful, but the poor leadership of Baltag had it in chaotic disarray, while Kang's band was small, but led by the greatest military genious of all history (so says Stan Lee... and not talking about Cap precisely), and managed to find their way to Baltag himself.

* MookPromotion: Erik Josten, an unknown mook of Baron Zemo, left on his own wandering in the jungle after Zemo's death. He used the machine that created Wonder Man, becoming Power Man (not ''that'' Power Man, in fact he fought with Luke Cage for the right to the name, and lost). Years later, he got size-changing power. Then, ionic powers. Then, he became the superhero Atlas of the {{Thunderbolts}}, and the rest, as they say, is history. Not bad for a mere unnamed mook.

* WaterIsAir: Averted in the battle against Attuma. The complications of fighting underwater, which slows speed and reflexes, and the problems with pressure, are fully acknowledged in the plot.
