    I'm not much of an Avengers expert, but I'll give it a go...
    spoilers:

    Easy (100 possible points)

    Who are the five founding Avengers? (5 points each)
    Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Ant-Man, and Wasp.

    In what four identities does a certain time-traveling scientist from the 31st century appear? (5 points each)
    Kang the Conquerer...and, uh, was it something like "The Living Pharaoh"?
    What super-villain does he suggest might also be an incarnation of himself? (5 points)
    Dr. Doom?
    Which Avenger is the first to make with the "Avengers Assemble!" battle cry? (5 points)
    I'm uncertain, but I'd guess Hawkeye.
    Why is the Vision crying in "Even An Android Can Cry?" (5 points)
    Because his corset is too tight? I remember him being drawn with a very waspish wasted in that issue...
    Who disguises himself as Carol Danvers to lure Captain Marvel into a trap? (5 points)
    Don't know this one...
    Who disguises himself as Rutland Halloween parade organizer Tom Fagan to lure the Avengers into a trap? (5 points)
    Nor this....
    Which member of Zodiac is the father of Mantis? (5 points)
    I'm picturing Bob Brown art of a guy with a blindfold, so it must be Libra.
    In what order do these Avengers join the team? (25 points)

    a. The Black Knight
    b. The Black Widow
    c. Captain America
    d. Hercules
    e. The Swordsman

    Captain America was first, Swordsman next. Black Widow was the last of these five. Herc and the Knight come between Swordsman and Natasha, and I think (but am not certain) that Herc was before the Knight.

    This is the easy stuff? I'm not feeling good about my chances...

    Hard (150 possible points)

    What six super-heroes fight on the Defenders side in the Avengers/Defenders war? (10 points each)

    The Defenders hadn't shaken up their lineup much at that point. I'm pretty sure it was Dr. Strange, Namor, Hulk, Sub-Mariner, and Valkyrie with Hawkeye allying himself with them.

    What New York City landmark did Jack Kirby use as the model for Avengers Mansion? (10 points)
    ?
    What tiny Balkan nation is the homeland of Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch? (10 points)
    ?
    What three characters turn down Avengers membership? (10 points each)
    Spider-Man? (or was that in FF that he was told it wasn't a paying gig?)
    I seem to recall Black Widow refusing her first offer?
    I don't know who else might have turned them down.
    Name all 21 guests at Yellowjacket and the Wasp's wedding. (10 points each)
    I'm sure I could get a lot of these just by naming the Avengers of the era, but I don't think I'll try. I'm pretty sure Stan and Jack snubbed this one, though.
    Hardest (250 possible points)

    Where was Loki imprisoned at the beginning of Avengers #1? (20 points)
    Dangit, a bunch of JLA-related prisons are springing to mind. A distant asteroid?
    What five figures from myth, legend and history did Immortus pit against our heroes in Avengers #10? (10 points each)
    Hey, wait, Immortus was one of those Kang-related villains from the "easy" questions, wasn't he? Can I go back and add to my answers?
    Name the three ants who accompanied Ant-Man on his "Journey to the Center of the Android?" (10 points each)
    I think they were named after alien expletives from EC comics, weren't they? Spa Fon, Squa Tront, something like that?
    Which one got killed? (10 points)
    Nope...
    What eight super-heroes did Rick Jones materialize out of thin air with his temporary superpowers during the Kree/Skrull War? (10 points each)
    OK, conjuring up the mental image of that splash...it was one of my earliest comics, and I think I can get most of them:
    The Fin, The Destroyer, The Vision, The Blazing Skull, uh...The Human Torch?
    Who wrote the poem used to narrate a scene of a young boy playing football with Ultron's skull? (20 points)
    Shelley? I think it was Ozymandias. But hey, I just realized, wouldn't that metal skull be kind of painful to kick?
    Who wrote the poem the Scarlet Witch recites to Arkon the Magnificent? (20 points)
    I don't know...Ogden Nash would have been funny, though.
    What did the Black Knight throw in the Well at the Center of Time? (20 points)
    His Ebon Blade? Just a guess, but I'm semi-remembering a letters page from an issue of Defenders where someone complained that the Black Knight had been depicted with a sword that he had been shown to have lost.

    Bonus Round (500 possible points)

    Name the members of the following super-teams.
    (5 points each, plus 10 for each complete team plus 50 for getting all ten complete teams.

    1. The Beast Brood (8 members)
    2. The Legion of the Unliving (6 members)
    3. The Lethal Legion (5 members)
    4. The Liberators (5 members)
    5. The Masters of Evil (1964 incarnation - 6 members)
    6. The Masters of Evil (1968 incarnation - 6 members)
    7. The Split-Second Squad (7 members)*
    8. The Squadron Sinister (4 members)
    9. The Titanic Three (3 members)
    10. The Triumvirate of Terror (3 members)

    * One member is never identified by name. Free 5 points.

    Well, at least I get the free 5 points here. I can make a stab at a couple of these teams:
    4. The Liberators: Valkyrie, Wasp, Scarlet Witch, Black Widow...and one more. Enchantress?
    8. Squadron Sinister: Nighthawk, Hyperion, Dr. Spectrum...and, uh, Jack B. Quick?

    I vaguely remembered one of the folklore character. But I suspected my memory was betraying me, because it seems too oddball. So I decided not to guess that character. Now, it turns out every other person is guessing that character I omitted!
    "I don't care if they have definite connections to the boy scouts. They have Weapon X - I want him back. We spent a lot of money and resources developing and training him - not to mention your group as well - I won't see it thrown away."
    - Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, April 1979

    Unfortunately, Wolverine escaped to the U.S. with the X-Men. Soon after this stunning debacle, Trudeau's Liberal Party would go down to defeat in the May 1979 election.

    9. The Titanic Three (3 members)
    10. The Triumvirate of Terror (3 members)


    1. The Beast Brood (8 members)

    No idea. I’ll guess Man-Ape, Frog-Man and The Owl from DD’s rogues gallery team up with, oh, heck, let’s say Dr. Octopus, The Lizard, Ziggy Pig, Howard the Duck and Joseph William Mallard Turner. How should I know?

    You know what? When I wrote ‘Man-Ape’ there, I was thinking of the DD villain (Ape-Man) from the Trio Team (see Spidey and DD in Marvel Team-Up No. 26 or so), but it occurs to me that the Black Panther’s foe Man-Ape is a more likely candidate. Him and seven others.

    2. The Legion of the Unliving (6 members)

    The Original Human Torch, Frankenstein’s Monster, Midnight… Crumbs! I can see the cover in my mind’s eye (No. 132 or so) but can’t think of the other three members. I’ve an idea one was from classic literature. 09 Morgan?

    3. The Lethal Legion (5 members)

    The Living Laser. That’s all I can think of. Again, I can see at least an approximation of the cover in my mind’s eye. This was a rascally Roy ‘The Boy’ Thomas issue, so I’ll plead for a bonus point by putting it to you that the story introducing this conglomeration of villainy was entitled “Lo! The Lethal Legion!!”

    4. The Liberators (5 members)

    The Valkyrie… Black Widow? Scarlet Witch?

    5. The Masters of Evil (1964 incarnation - 6 members)

    Baron or Doctor Zemo
    The Executioner
    The Enchantress
    The Black Knight
    The Melter

    Sorry, I’m blanking on the sixth member, though I’d guess that it ought to be one of Giant-Man’s foes (or did Hank fight the Black Knight before that character tried his luck against ol’ Shellhead?). However, I also have a feeling that it was another third-rate foe of Iron Man, only not any of the ones I can actually think of at the moment (Jack Frost, the Scarecrow, Dr Strange, Kala, Queen of the Netherworld, et cetera). I’m pretty sure it wasn’t the Crimson Dynamo or Titanium Man.

    6. The Masters of Evil (1968 incarnation - 6 members)

    Baron or Doctor Zemo
    The Whirlwind
    Man-Ape
    Titanium Man

    7. The Split-Second Squad (7 members)*

    Six named characters and one who was un-named – please may I have five free points?

    8. The Squadron Sinister (4 members)

    Superman, Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern.

    Sorry. I could not resist that one. It was:

    Hyperion
    Nighthawk
    The Whizzer
    Dr. Spectrum

    9. The Titanic Three (3 members)

    The Slasher
    Titanium Man
    The Crimson Dynamo

    10. The Triumvirate of Terror (3 members)

    In the Avengers? Isn’t this Daredevil’s team of third-rate foes? Cat-Man, Frog-Man and Bird-Man? (Stan, could you not be more specific? It’s not like there aren’t enough species of birds out there that they’ve all been used already).

    What were the Swordsman's last words? (44 points)
    "I'm just one of those people who doesn't count."

    At this point, I'm gonna totally wuss out and ask someone better at math than I am (i.e., pretty much everyone) to tally the scores and identify our winner. If there's a question about whether an answer should count, be generous (within reason: if the answer's "Hawkeye,"giving 'em points for "Hercules" because both start with an "H" is over the line).

    Cei-U!
    I cheer for the winner!
