Have you seen this little known “alternate” version of “The Avengers” movie Super Bowl commercial? If not, you’re missing a couple of very fun scenes, especially one between Loki and Tony Stark as they brag about the strength of their respective forces.

The upcoming Avengers movie storyline appears to be leaning towards portraying the super-team in the way comic writer Mark Millar’s “The Ultimates” was envisioned, with a more realistic and modern narrative. But it also looks as though it is paying homage to the roots of the Stan Lee & Jack Kirby Avengers origin as well.

The Avengers #1Earth’s mightiest super-heroes first banded together, to fight the foes no single superhero could withstand, back in 1963. They were brought together when Loki (Thor’s no-good half-brother) messed with the incredible Hulk’s head and misled the other heroes (Iron Man, Ant-Man, Wasp and Thor) into thinking the jade giant was on a rampage. They teamed up to stop the Hulk, but in the end Loki’s machinations were revealed and the Hulk sided with the good-guys to defeat the evil trickster.

It will be fun to see how much of the Avengers’ almost 50 year-old origin will be carried over into this modern movie, and if you’d like to check out the original story yourself, Marvel comics has it available FREE online for your reading & viewing pleasure.
