The Assembly of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes was centered around Loki, the Asgardian God of mischief, whom used an illusion to trick The Hulk into destroying a railroad track in the hopes of luring his half-brother Thor to the scene where Loki could then use his power against Thor while he would be busy fighting the Hulk. Hearing of the Hulk’s rampage, Rick Jones sent a radio message to The Fantastic Four informing them of the problem, seeking to enlist their aid in stopping the Hulk. In a twist of fate, Loki diverted the message to Thor, whom he hoped would then battle the Hulk. Unbeknownst to Loki, and unintended, too, the message was also picked up by Iron Man, Ant-Man and The Wasp. These heroes, as well as Thor, all responded to the call and came together to stop the menace of The Hulk. Upon engaging the Hulk, they soon discovered Loki’s trickery and teamed up with Hulk to defeat the God of Mischief. Ant-Man mentioned to the other heroes that the five of them worked well together and suggested that they should combine to form a team to fight against threats that no lone hero could deal with. The Wasp proposes the name “Avengers” and thus Earth’s Mightiest Heroes were formed. The original members are known as the “founding members” based on an Avengers Charter, to manage the good name of the team. As a result, their wishes regarding the direction of the team are given additional weight and deference.
