->''"You can fight it all you want, but we are '''going''' to be friends, all of us! It's inevitable! We've saved the world like a hundred times now, we've been through horrible things, we've saved each other's lives! We are in this together, and it's time you all started acting like it!"''

After ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' premiered on Creator/DisneyXD, Creator/MarvelComics released a four-issue collection of comics (January- April, 2011) set in the show's universe. The first three each contained two comics, plus some character biographies. The first comic in each of these books is basically a standard story of Franchise/TheAvengers fighting a threat that one hero cannot fend alone. The second comic in each of these books features a short story in which two select heroes team up against an evacuee of the breakout. The fourth issue deviated from this format, presenting one relatively long comic.

Additional comics started coming in 2012, under the "all-ages" ''Marvel Universe'' banner. The first 12 issues in this series each contain two all-new comics. Issues 13-18 present {{Film Comic}}s of the first six episodes of the cartoon's second season. (For tropes related to the Film Comics, visit the trope pages of the show and the season 2 episode recaps.)

!!Tropes associated with the comics:

[[folder: The Limited Series]]
* AllThereInTheManual: How Crimson Dynamo joined the Masters of Evil is explained in the story "Obsession", and his bio in the same issue revealed his real name (It's [[Film/IronMan2 Ivan Vanko]]). It also confirmed in "Team" that the robot Iron Man fought in "Iron Man is Born" is the show's version of Ultimo.
* AnachronicOrder: The graphic novel compiling the first seven comics seems to jump around from one month after "Living Legend"[[note]]Janet explicitly states in "Adaption" that Captain America/Steve's already spent a month in the 21st century.[[/note]], to some time before "Gamma World"[[note]]"Obsession" ends with Crimson Dynamo joining the Masters of Evil, and "Savage" begins with the Avengers setting off to try and convince the Hulk to return.[[/note]], to the day after "The Kang Dynasty".[[note]]Steve tells Jan that the Avengers need to train harder after the challenges Kang brought forth.[[/note]] Also, it seems like anyone's guess when the even-numbered chapters take place.
* ArtShift: The miniseries' even-numbered stories have more realistic artwork. The same person who drew those stories also drew some splash panels in the last one, whenever Wasp takes photographs of the fight against Ultimo.
* BatmanGambit: The Hulk of all people pulls one when dealing with a BrainwashedAndCrazy Thor in "Savage". Knowing that Thor would never want to harm a defenseless mortal, he transforms into Bruce Banner during battle. Thor's hypnosis successfully lifts, although Hulk admits he wouldn't have minded if his gambit failed.
* {{Canon Immigrant}}s: Bartoc the Leaper, Adaptoid, the Winter Guard, Collector, and Grandmaster.
* CaptionHumor: Accompanies Wasp's photographs in "Team".
* ContinuityCameo:
** Comicbook/WarMachine helps Iron Man defeat Crimson Dynamo in a flashback from "Obsession".
** Wasp has [[Franchise/{{Spider-Man}} Peter Parker]] take a group shot of the Avengers at the end of "Team", the final comic.
* ContinuityNod: "Team" begins with the same news report seen at the beginning of the Micro-Episode "Iron Man is Born!"
** Also, after the second defeat of Ultimo, Iron Man catches the robot's head while striking the same pose from his first scene in that short. ("[[LampshadeHanging And...Deja vu.]]")
* EnergyAbsorption: Ultimo's power, demonstrated in "Team". Eventually, the Avengers have to resort to [[spoiler: [[EnemyMine teaming up with the Masters of Evil]]]] in order to overload it.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Each comic is named after a quality or ability that someone develops or explores.
* InMediasRes: "Trust", "Mutual Respect", and "Courage" each begin in the middle of a fight between two Avengers and a villain rarely seen in the cartoon.
* MagicPants: It's probably just an inconsistency error, but when Hulk changes into Bruce Banner during "Savage", Banner wears only the infamous purple pants. The next time they show him, he's wearing a sweatshirt as well.
* OhCrap: After Ultimo returns at the beginning of "Team":
-->'''Wasp:''' Okay, what is that?
-->'''Hawkeye:''' Does it matter? Oh, by the way, I quit.
* PowerCopying: Adaptoid's power, demonstrated in "Adaptation".
* TeamShot: "Team" begins with Jan trying in vain to get the other Avengers to pose for a photograph. They eventually have a picture taken together at the end of the comic.
* TitleDrop: The Avengers' group photo seen on the last page of "Team" has a caption reading, "Whether they [the guys] admit it or not, we're a team. We're family. We're Earth's mightiest heroes!"

[[folder:Marvel Universe]]
* TheAdjectivalSuperhero: The Mighty Comicbook/MsMarvel lampshades this at the end of "The Skrull Skull" as she suggests that she and the Mighty Thor become "The Mightiest Avengers".
* ArtEvolution: The drawings look closer to the show than the Limited Series did. Unfortunately, the style [[InvertedTrope devolves]] starting at around issue #5.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler: The Grey Gargoyle]]
** [[spoiler: Ultron]]
* BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind: Captain America has one against Lord Nightmare in "The Last American Dream", with help from {{Sleepwalker}}.
* BroughtDownToNormal: "Baby Steps" has Tony Stark temporarily transplant TheVision into a less powerful body so that Tony can check his usual body for glitches. Vision sees this as the closest he'll get to feeling like a human.
* CainAndAbel: Inverted with [[spoiler: Scorpio and NickFury]].
* {{Canon Immigrant}}s: Mandarin, Fing Fang Foom, PhilCoulson, Scorpio, SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}}, ScarletWitch, {{Quicksilver}}, and many, many more.
* CassandraTruth: Hawkeye refuses to believe the story Black Panther shares about King Solomon's Frogs, which connects them not only with a Biblical monarch, but also with Literature/{{Aladdin}} and the Loch Ness Monster.
* CharacterCheck: "The Leader's Legions" portrays Hank Pym as [[spoiler: Ant-Man, instead of Yellowjacket]].
* ContinuityNod: In "It Came From Inner Space!", the microscopic Psycho-Man decides to try and conquer the normal-sized "Macroverse" after a larger item causes destruction in his empire-[[spoiler: one of the money stacks that accidentally shrank to smaller than microscopic size in "To Steal An Ant-Man"]].
* TheCorruption: The titular weapon of "Mayhem of the Madbomb!" can increase people's anger and strengthen their violent tendencies.
* CoversAlwaysLie:
** The third issue has Giant-Man on the cover, even though neither of the comics within have him.
** The fifth issue gives Comicbook/BlackWidow the same treatment.
** The sixteenth issue adapts "Welcome To The Kree Empire", yet features a cover that doesn't even remotely anything that happened in the episode: Captain Mar-Vell and Ronan the Accuser imprisoning Iron Man, Captain America[[labelnote:spoiler]]Steve Rogers, not Skrull!Cap[[/labelnote]], and Comicbook/MsMarvel in a sphere.
* ADayInTheLimelight:
** Some comics only star one Avenger.
** "Rise of the Locust" stars Nick Fury instead of the Avengers.
* EiffelTowerEffect: "Mayhem of the Madbomb!" takes place in the Empire State Building. Black Panther demands himself and Hulk to reach the bomb at the top with stealth, fearing a battle with the Comicbook/{{HYDRA}} agents inside could damage the building, while Hulk doesn't care if they have to [[MonumentalDamage destroy the structure]] to save the city.
* EveryEpisodeEnding: The last panel of each comic has an encircled A in the corner.
* EvilVersusEvil: "Artistic License" sees Captain America's efforts to save some valuable French paintings from Porcupine get interrupted by Bartoc the Leaper coming to fight Porcupine for at least one of the paintings.
* FantasticRacism: Wasp endures this in "Magneto Walks the Earth". The newspaper falsely calls her a mutant, prompting a protest outside Avengers Mansion. She also gets personally invited to join Magneto's crusade against humans.
* FriendlyEnemies: Thor and Comicbook/TheIncredibleHercules.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: A time-hopping sequence in "King Solomon's Frogs" briefly lands Hawkeye and Black Panther in a battle between the Avengers and [[spoiler: {{Galactus}}]], the villain of the ''Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes'' series finale. Panther also considers the whole adventure an omen of Kang's eventual escape from prison.
* FreakyFridayFlip: MODOC switches Iron Man's and Hawkeye's minds in "Brain Games", using what Hawkeye refers to as, [[BuffySpeak a "Freaky Friday gizmo".]]
* FusionDance: "This Man, That Monster!" gives Captain America the powers and appearance of the Incredible Hulk.
* GirlsNightOutEpisode: In "The Skies Are Doomed!", Wasp and Black Widow face SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom.
* [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist by Her Own Petard]]: "The Serpent Crown" has Madame Viper use an enchanted crown to summon a snake demon to help her TakeOverTheWorld. However, the demon instead tries to attack her, then does the same to everyone else who tries on the crown.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: "This Man, That Monster!" opens with Bruce Banner having another scientist ([[spoiler: The Mad Thinker in disguise]]) drain his gamma energy so he could resume the life of a normal physicist.
* IncredibleShrinkingMan: Wasp shrinks Iron Man and Captain America in "They Came From Inner Space!", so they can help the Franchise/{{Micron|auts}}s stop Psycho-Man from conquering the normal-sized "Macroverse".
* KickTheDog: In "Magneto Walks the Earth", when Magneto [[spoiler: strangles Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver for begging him not to harm any humans]], Wasp exclaims, "It's like you're trying to be extra evil!"
* LampshadeHanging: The constant attacks on Stark Tower get this in "Enter the Mandarin."
* LateArrivalSpoiler: The fifth issue has 10 Avengers, but came out when the cartoon only had seven leads. Its release happened two weeks before [[spoiler: TheVision pulled a HeelFaceTurn]], roughly a month before [[spoiler: Hank Pym became Yellowjacket]], and two months before [[spoiler: Hulk became pardoned for destruction he didn't really cause]].
** Pick up one of the many comics guest-starring Black Widow without watching the first season of the show, and the conclusion to the subplot about her possibly becoming a double agent will lose a little of its surprise.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall[=/=]MythologyGag: In the RecapEpisode "Assembly Line," each of the entries that Nick Fury and Maria Hill record about events from the first season has a number containing the respective episode's production code (or codes, for events from multi-part episodes).
* LowerDeckEpisode: "World's Smartest Heroes" has Hulk, Wasp, and Hawkeye defend Avengers Mansion from Wizard, with help from an AscendedFanboy.
* MomentKiller: Hawkeye finally lands a date with Black Widow at the end of "My Dinner with HYDRA," but it gets cut short by [[spoiler: Widow getting a call for the two of them to free some hostages from Baron Zemo in Alcatraz]].
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: Agent Coulson doesn't look as stylized as the other characters, since he debuted in Marvel's live-action movies, and never showed up in the ''Earth's Mightiest Heroes'' cartoon.
* OffModel: Unfortunately happens more often here than in the cartoon.
* PaintingTheMedium:
** Iron Man has yellow word balloons with red font, to match his armor.
** Thor has his dialogue written in a slightly-old-looking script font.
** The Vision has yellow word balloons with black text.
* SeriesContinuityError: "When the Grey Gargoyle Strikes" takes place after the first season finale, yet Iron Man still has his Mark VII armor. Even more confusing, [[spoiler: Skrull]] Captain America has his original costume, and his photonic shield, even though the cartoon had already shown that he didn't get that shield until after he started wearing a new costume.
** Baddies that got locked up in Prison 42 during either the cartoon or the limited series sometimes become the villains of these comics, as if the Avengers never defeated them before.
* [[SirNotAppearingInThisTrailer Sir/Lady Not-Appearing-on-This-Cover]]: Most notably, ''no Avengers bar Black Panther'' appear on the cover of the "Michael Korvac" adaptation.
* SpiritualSuccessor: To ''Comicbook/MarvelAdventures''.
* SuddenlyVoiced: [[spoiler: Fing Fang Foom, after the Avengers free him from Mandarin's [[BrainwashedAndCrazy mind control]] in "Enter the Mandarin".]]
* TitleDrop: Either Maria Hill or Agent Coulson calls the Avengers, "Earth's mightiest heroes," in "Assembly Line."
* WeaponOfMassDestruction: The Zerobomb, which ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} and HYDRA race to find in "Absolute Zero". This bomb can cause so much destruction, that the inventor [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone instantly regretted creating it]], and hid both it and himself from the Soviets.
* [[WorkingThroughTheCold Working Through The Chicken Pox]]: Iron Man does this in "Germ Of a Chance".
