* ComicBookAdaptation: In 1968, Gold Key Comics published a one-shot comic book based on the series, reprinting a British comic strip. However due to the fact Creator/MarvelComics owned the name ''The Avengers'' in comics, the adaptation was titled ''John Steed Emma Peel'', though its official title remained ''The Avengers'' in the indicia. In 1990-1991 Eclipse Comics published a 3-issue comic book mini-series (written by Creator/GrantMorrison), but it ran into the same problem so it was titled ''Steed and Mrs. Peel''; it also suffered from a months-long delay before the release of part 3. An ''Avengers'' comic strip also ran in one of the UK weekly comic magazines, but there were no problems using the original title over there. The ''Steed and Mrs. Peel'' title of 1991 was revived by Creator/BoomComics in the early 2010s (beginning with a reprint of the Morrison mini-series and then moving into original tales) and ran for about 18 months. ''The New Avengers'' was adapted in comic strip form in a pair of UK-published Annuals.

This [[ReTool retooling]] of the show became a massive smash. With a consistent AgentsDating format, the show began to move away from more mundane villains and towards science fictional supervillains and [[DiabolicalMastermind diabolical masterminds]].
