(Some of) The Avengers Assemble on the Amiga

After six solo films (Hulk, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger) the Marvel superheroes have gathered in a single film called The Avengers (or Avengers Assemble in the UK). Thats not counting the 1990 Captain America and the 1998 Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD starring David Hasselhoff, which are both best forgotten.

However, the characters of The Avengers had already assembled (okay, a few of them) within the memory banks of our Amigas! Amiga Lore reviews their appearances.

Captain America

Captain America teams up with The Amazing Spiderman in Dr. Dooms Revenge, a beat-em-up from the late 80s. Sadly, afterwards Spiderman was too busy to attend when Captain America fought an alien invasion arriving through a portal in space.



In System 3s Myth: History in the Making, the protagonist travels through a number of mythical settings. During the Norse section he visits Asgard and fights Thor who wields his hammer Mjölnir and afterwards flies him to see Odin himself.



In the introduction to Heimdall, Loki is seen pilfering the weapons of Odin, Frey and Thor. In response, Thor creates a storm which causes the pregnancy of a girl who becomes Heimdall's mother. Loki also appears as the antagonist in the sequel Heimdall 2: Into the Hall of Worlds.


The Incredible Hulk

Dr. Bruce Banner's green alter ego, The Incredible Hulk, appears in Dr. Dooms Revenge where  the Hulk turns up to help stop a missile.


Iron Man

Before Tony Stark was, in his own words, a "genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist" with a flying armoured suit he was a racing driver called Ivan "Ironman" Stewart. Probably.


Sorry, this is cheating! The character in the Thalamus Amiga (and C64) game is not the same as the Marvel Hawkeye.

Nick Fury

Samuel L. Jackson never plays a role. Under the flimsy façade of a "character name" he is Samuel L. Jackson. Therefore, we can safely say that Nick Fury appeared on the Amiga in Super Tennis Champs in the guise of Jules from Pulp Fiction.


Black Widow

No, not on the Amiga. But any excuse to have a photo of Scarlett Johansson...

There we have it. Thats the closest the Amiga will ever get to an Avengers tie-in game.
