Through the endless demons clawing their way out of the shadows of my past. I can feel it rising in the air. Cutting through the screams of a carnage-born god. Sending ripples of electricity through my codex-laden spine… boiling. Just below the surface. Aching to get out. For the first time in a very long time… I feel it. Hope. They fall into me. Black rain. Burrowing and growing. The codices… writhing and connecting with my own. The voices of their former hosts screaming into my mind. Captain America’s voice barking orders and war strategies. Wolverine’s rage igniting my blood into ancient fire. I see through Hawkeye’s diamond-scalpel eyes. The Thing’s ungodly strength turning my muscles to stone. They all melt together inside of me. Many voices becoming one. The power… not like anything I have ever felt before… something… new. Something better. We are the fury of this red-drenched city. Clothed in the armor of an avenging legion. This ends with us. All of us. Because we’re stronger when we’re together. And together… we. Are. Venom.”

And that word is assemble. When we come together, we’re stronger than when we stand apart. That’s what it’s always been about. We come together to fight what can’t be fought alone. To defeat those things in the world that would drag us down. That would make us lesser. Those things no single hero can withstand. And by we? I mean all of us. When we make the effort to help those who need us– to help each other, to be there for each other — we are all Avengers. You are Avengers.”

45. “I believe in the Avengers. We came together to face threats no single individual could withstand. To make the world a safer place. Perhaps it was a simpler time. Perhaps we were naive. Jocasta just asked me where I’d be without the Avengers. I’ve thought long and hard about that. And I know, without question… I’d be dead. Or insane. Or in prison. Or just not doing anyone much good. The Avengers have saved the world countless times. But they have also saved me. Have I faced hard times as a result of being an Avenger? Definitely. But I’ve also experienced some of the greatest moments of my life. Seen and done thing no other scientist can ever imagine. I’ve had the privilege of fighting beside some of the greatest heroes–and best friends–the world’s ever seen. And I’ve found happiness. More than I probably deserve. If I’d never become an Avenger, I might have lived a quiet, contented, productive life as a researcher. But it’s just as likely I’d have struggled with the same demons—depression, mental illness, suicidal thoughts–and not make it out the other side. And I wouldn’t have had the great honor of teaching you.”

Author: Deadpool (X-Men)

49. “Together, you and I will identify and confront America’s problems. Together, we will figure out what we are and what we can be. Together, we will define the American Dream and make it an American Reality. Now and forevermore, I am a man of the People.”

Author: Captain America (Captain America)

50. “Such bluster. How very typical. Ever the sheltered son. So many fractured delusions. You know nothing of war. For all these countless millennia — when it comes to the two of us — you seem to have avoided the simplest of conclusions. Instead, you feel the incessant need to avenge every wrong you perceive from your position of languid morality…as if it were some sort of game. Quite sad. But if it’s a war you truly desire, Thor — then Loki can happily provide.”

51. “Aye. I am an old man–foolish and fond, and quick with my temper. There are times I show little wisdom. And yet…here is wisdom. The strange wisdom of the world-tree I gave this eye to.

Through every star and planet. Every hero and villain. Every life. Every story. I am Odin Borson, who build the world from corpse-meat. I am Odin One-Eye, and sometimes my one eye is open. But above all, I am Odin All-Father. I am the one who speaks for the tree. I am the king of all stories…and you are my child.”

There be glory and grandeur all about thee – if thou wilt but see! Aye, there will be time enow for thee to disavow thy heritage – yea, thou mayest drop out fore’er – once Hela herself hath come for thee! But, so long as life endures – thou must live it to the full! Else, thou be unworthy of the title – Man!”

Author: Thor (Thor)
