So Avengers 2 is already out overseas (I hate you all, but not really because usually we get stuff first), and for you Avengers/Marvel/Superhero fans, here are some (non graphic novel) books to read:
Why: Pulitzer Prize winner that tells about a pair of men coming to America to create comic books.
Why: awesome metaish series that is part superhero, part urban fantasy with demons about a girl whose mom is a superhero.
Why: More meta about superheros. Really dark superheros, who may not actually count as superheros at all but villains.
Why: Book about a boy who is the product of a supervillain and superhero's one night stand and is torn between being a villain or a hero.
Why: About a boy going to a school for criminal masterminds.
Why: About a world of superheros and villains and the romantic mis-adventures various women have in said world.
Why: Marvel has started to take over publishing now. This is one of the newest offerings they have about a group of teenagers who get powers of zodiac animals.
Why: Consider the Scarlet Pimpernel as the precursor to superheros.
Why: Middle-Grade about a boy with powers who is training to be a side-kick.
Why: Set in a world of superheros/villains, this is about a guy who is a consultant for supervillains.
