Joe Stone has followed up his X-Men and Fantastic Four family trees with exploring the inter-connectivity displayed within the ranks of the ultimate Marvel comics team: The Avengers.
The best thing about Stone’s art, is that you have to be well-versed in your comic book lore.
For example, have you ever wondered just how well Jarvis and Spider-Man‘s Aunt May know each other? Or just how many people have fallen under Black Widow‘s spell, and how Squirrel Girl fits into it a picture about the Avengers?
Take a look and see how many characters YOU can name.

Comic books can get notoriously complicated with the relationships between characters, plots, marriages, children, alternate realities, etc… Suffice to say, there is no real easy way to learn everything about a character’s history that gives you full details of their comings and goings, although a Wikipedia page is always a good place to start.
