First Appearance: The Mighty Avengers: The Faces of Justice! coloring book (2011)

History: (The Mighty Avengers: The Faces of Justice!) - After being banished to Asgard’s Island of the Trolls by Thor, Loki sent a troll to Earth to cause mischief.

(The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) – The  troll briefly disguised itself as the Hulk before returning to its normal form in time for Bruce Banner to see the troll’s destruction. Tony Stark also learned of the bridge’s destruction via a coded message on his computer screen and quickly chose a suit of Iron Man armor.

(The Mighty Avengers: The Faces of Justice!) - While Iron Man was flying to the scene, Bruce Banner stumbled across the troll mid-destruction and, transforming into the Hulk, rushed to hold up the bridge to protect anyone crossing the bridge. Ant-Man, Wasp and Captain America soon learned of the bridge’s destruction and, arriving on the scene at the same time as Iron Man, found Hulk holding the bridge. Assuming he had smashed the bridge, the heroes began to fight but the battle was broken up by the arrival of Thor.

(The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) – The combined heroes teamed up to defeat the troll, tying him up in chains.

(The Mighty Avengers: The Faces of Justice!/The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) - Realizing their mistake in fighting each other, all of the heroes present banded together as the Avengers and traveled to Asgard seeking Loki.

(The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) – The Avengers traveled through the mazes of Asgard, avoiding an Asgardian Cyclops before arriving at an Asgardian ship that took them to the Island of Trolls.

(The Mighty Avengers: The Faces of Justice!/The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) - Upon their arrival on the Island of the Trolls, the Avengers were beset by an army of trolls under Loki’s command.

(The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) – During the battle against the trolls, Hulk helped scatter trolls attacking Iron Man and Loki magically transformed five of the trolls into duplicates of Captain America, leading to confusion for Thor. Captain America took care of the duplicates while Wasp, Hulk and Ant-Man continued to battle the trolls.

(The Mighty Avengers: Protect & Serve) – With the Avengers distracted by the trolls, Loki magically shrunk himself down to insect size in an effort to hide.

(The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) - Ant-Man shrunk down to ant size himself, planning to surprise the insect-sized Loki.

(The Mighty Avengers: The Faces of Justice!) – Ant-Man’s ploy succeeded and, together with the Wasp, he held Loki down, allowing Thor to strike Loki with lightning.

(The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) – Making their way back to Earth via Asgard’s Rainbow Bridge, the Avengers based themselves out of the newly-built Avengers Mansion, made from plans approved by Iron Man. They subsequently hired and welcomed butler Edwin Jarvis to their staff. As part of the team’s organization and official startup, Tony Stark created files on each team member, placing photos of the team members into files labeled with their civilian identities. The Avengers soon learned to enjoy the lavish Mansion, often relaxing there and occasionally leaving a mess for Jarvis to cleanup. While getting used to the new Mansion, Ant-Man shrunk to ant-size and briefly became lost in the grass of the Mansion’s lawn. Shortly thereafter, Iron Man received the Avengers Alarm while tinkering in his lab.

(The Mighty Avengers: The Faces of Justice!) – The alarm sounded due to Baron Zemo covering New York City in glue.

(The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) – Captain America also received the alarm about Baron Zemo via a coded message from S. H. I. E. L. D. and quickly realized the Avengers were needed.

(The Mighty Avengers: Protect & Serve) – Captain America yelled “Avengers Assemble!” before summoning the other Avengers.

(The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) - Donning his armor, Iron Man located Wasp and Ant-Man within his lab while Thor arrived on Earth after Captain America had sent a coded message to all Avengers. Bruce Banner transformed into the Hulk and met up with the other Avengers and the team made its way through New York City towards Baron Zemo.

(The Mighty Avengers: The Faces of Justice!) – While he covered the city in glue, Zemo sent his Crimebots to rob the city. The Avengers soon arrived on the scene and battled the Crimebots, with Iron Man blasting some of them and Ant-Man opting to use his powers to grow as Giant-Man.

(The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) – Iron Man deduced a way to stop the Crimebots by disabling the Alpha-Bot that they were all linked to. The Hulk continued to fight the Crimebots.

(The Mighty Avengers: The Faces of Justice!) – While the Avengers fought the Crimebots, Thor took the fight directly to Baron Zemo.

(The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) – The Wasp flew around several Crimebots before located the Alpha-Bot to disable.

(The Mighty Avengers: The Faces of Justice!) – Captain America distracted the Alpha-Bot while the Wasp flew inside its head to disable it.

(The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) – The Wasp flew around inside of the Alpha-Bot, trying to find the correct circuit to disable.

(The Mighty Avengers: The Faces of Justice!) – Wasp managed to disable the Alpha-Bot, shutting down all of the other Crimebots, but Baron Zemo fled from the scene.

(The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) – Captain America pursued the fleeing Zemo, getting a lift from Giant-Man to reach the rooftops. Once above ground, Captain America trailed Zemo through the city.

(The Mighty Avengers: The Faces of Justice!) – Locating him, Captain America hurled his shield at the escaping Zemo, knocking his glue gun into the air and causing it to spray Zemo himself, preventing him from further escape.

(The Mighty Avengers: Brave in Battle (fb) – BTS) – During the battle against Zemo, Thor lost his helmet, cape and hammer.

(The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) – With Baron Zemo captured, Giant-Man carried him off to the police station while Iron Man received a coded message from S. H. I. E. L. D. ordering them to clean up the mess caused by Zemo. Hulk quickly grabbed up the destroyed Crimebots while Iron Man looked a previous photo of the city to make sure everything was put back in its place.

(The Mighty Avengers: Brave in Battle) – Giant-Man made his way to the Wasp in an effort to team-up for the city cleanup while Thor searched for his missing hammer, cape and helmet.

(The Mighty Avengers: The Faces of Justice!) - Iron Man then dissolved the glue around the city with his heated boot jets.

(The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) – As part of the cleanup, Bruce Banner located things he had dropped during his earlier transformation into the Hulk and the other Avengers helped replace the broken signs for businesses such as Ultron Electronics, Smilin’ Stan’s Comics, Kirby Art Supply and Grimm’s Diner.

(The Mighty Avengers: Power Smash) – Iron Man used an old city photo to determine what buildings the broken signs belonged to and the team continued the repairs to the damaged New York City.

(The Mighty Avengers: Brave in Battle) – Before returning to Avengers Mansion, Captain America sent out a message reminding the others to “stand for freedom.”

(The Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble) – The Avengers then returned to Avengers Mansion, dropping off their helms and gear with Jarvis.

(The Mighty Avengers: Power Smash) – Once the Avengers’ gear had been sorted out, Jarvis look at pictures of the team members as a reminder of whose gear belonged to whom.

(The Mighty Avengers: The Faces of Justice!) – The team prepared to relax.

(The Mighty Avengers: Brave in Battle) – Captain America sent a message reminding the others to “prepare for duty.”

(Captain America: Seeing Stars!) - Captain America, now sporting a glove communicator, jumped on his motorcycle and drove off to stop the plans of A.I.M., jumping his motorcycle over an A.I.M. truck blocking the entrance into their headquarters. Learning that A.I.M. was stealing technology, Captain America easily rounded up the A.I.M. agents before donning a parachute for his next mission to stop MODOK and his robot army. Parachuting to MODOK's secret desert base, Cap was attacked by the base's sentry lasers, which Cap blocked with his shield. After one of the lasers destroyed Cap's parachute, Captain America dodged the ground sentry cannons and destroyed the entry keypad, forcing the door open and confronting MODOK face-to-face. MODOK quickly sent his robot army after Captain America, who destroyed MODOK's control panel for the robots, causing the robot army to shut down. Knocking out MODOK with a strong kick, Captain America was immediately contacted for his next mission when Hydra attacked a major city. Racing to Hydra's secret airfield, Captain America jumped onto one of Hydra's airships, where terrified Hydra agents tried to use acid blasters to destroy the stairs and keep Captain America from reaching them. Unfortunately for them, Cap simply jumped into the air and hurled his shield, knocking over the guards with ease before turning his attention to the Hydra leader. Captain America then managed to save the city by knocking out the Hydra leader and disabling Hydra's doomsday machine, unaware that Baron Zemo was plotting with Arnim Zola to stop Captain America. Captain America soon learned of the plan and interrupted Zemo and Zola's poison-making with a surprise attack. Arnim Zola charged at Captain America, who tore an electrical cable from the wall and shorted Zola out. Zemo then jumped in to attack with his sword but was knocked by Captain America before the poison could be completed. With Zemo and Zola defeated, Captain America leapt away and made his way back to his motorcycle. Leaving, Captain America sent out a communication reminding others to continue standing for freedom.

Comments: Created by Mark Halpin, Emilio Urbano, Manuela Razzi, John Raymond and Jeff Clark.

The divergent point at which this Earth diverged would be the point at which Captain America was thawed from ice, which had to have been prior to the Avengers’ founding, as he was a founding Avenger on this Earth. Other things that make this non-Earth-616 was Iron Man being in his Extremis-style armor at the time of the Avengers’ founding and Ant-Man becoming Giant-Man on the Avengers' second mission against Baron Zemo.

The publication date makes the designation of Earth-201163 suitable.

The book has a copyright of 2011 Marvel & Subs., meaning that Marvel owns the characters, not Dalmatian Press, who published the coloring book.

The Mighty Avengers: The Faces of Justice coloring book was reprinted in NUMEROUS other coloring books published by Dalmatian Press (and later Bendon Publishing) with various activities and other “fun” things added to it, in some cases new pages that expand on the original story such as the Mighty Avengers: Avengers Assemble. Two digest-sized coloring & activity books, the Mighty Avengers: Power Smash and the Mighty Avengers: Protect & Serve, split the story into two parts (with some shared pages between the two) and added colored stickers to the mix, which is where the in-color images are taken from. For the sake of completeness, I am listing the reprints in the List of Appearances in this profile because the reprints occasionally add new parts to the story. Given that both the Faces of Justice and Avengers Assemble coloring books came out in the same year, it’s nearly impossible to determine which was published first. I choose to believe that The Faces of Justice came first & Avengers Assemble merely added new pages since later coloring/activity books also added pages. It should also be noted that the two digest-sized coloring books told some aspects of the story out of order as some of the pages were rearranged. For the sake of minimizing confusion, I chose the present the story in the order in which they were printed in the original Faces of Justice book with the later, newly-added pages from other books being fit into the original story where they make the most sense. On that same note, only the characters who appear within the new pages added in later books have that issue listed in their appearances. They may have appeared in the book itself but only in the reprinted pages and therefore, they don’t have a new appearance in the book.

In 2014, Bendon Publishing released a coloring book that reprinted parts of the previous coloring books in a coloring book titled The Avengers: Ready for Action, which was included in The Avengers Play Pack: Grab & Go! along with crayons, a stencil and a mini velvet poster of Iron Man. Since Bendon Publishing had the rights to reprint the Faces of Justice stories, I chose to include coloring books published by that same company to be within the same universe as the Faces of Justice book and its subsequent reprints. As such, the Captain America: Seeing Stars! coloring book published by Bendon Publishing is also included in this universe's history section.

Probably goes without saying but the businesses mentioned in the story (Grimm’s Diner, Kirby Art Supply, Smilin’ Stan’s Comics, & Ultron Electronics) were references to Ben Grimm, Jack Kirby, Stan Lee and Ultron, respectively.

While Red Skull appeared on the cover of Captain America: Seeing Stars!, he was not shown anywhere in the story.

--Captain America: Seeing Stars!


The Avengers


When Loki sent a troll to Earth to cause destruction, Hulk helped support the bridge destroyed by the troll. Iron Man, Ant-Man and Wasp soon arrived, having heard of the bridge destruction via the news, and attacked the Hulk, assuming him to be the destructor. The arrival of Thor broke up their fight and the heroes banded together as the Avengers. Suspecting Loki’s hand, Thor led the Avengers to Asgard, where they were set upon by an army of trolls. Upon Loki's defeat, the Avengers remained together and battled Baron Zemo when the Baron sent his Crimebots to rob New York after the Baron had covered the city with glue. Defeating the Crimebots by removing the Alpha-Bot’s battery, leaving the Crimebots powerless, Captain America hurled his shield at the fleeing Zemo, who dropped his glue gun, spilling its content all over himself and gluing him to the ground. With Zemo captured, the Avengers rested until their next mission. Captain America later went on several missions involving A.I.M., MODOK, Hydra and a team-up of Baron Zemo and Arnim Zola.

They were (from left to right, clockwise): Wasp, Giant-Man, Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor. They were exactly the same as their Earth-616 counterparts.
