Avengers Infinity War: Avengers Assemble!
Before the Avengers looked like this in Avengers Infinity War …
… they looked like THIS in the pages of Marvel Comics!

Paul, come on!
You didn’t include a single Kirby panel?

Find me a good Kirby panel where they say “Avengers Assemble,” and I’ll add it! I’m certainly not allergic to Kirby here. Jack left Avengers after #8 and the first utterance of “Avengers Assemble” was in #10.
Kirby did do layouts for later issues, but the pencils were by Don Heck. If that counts as Kirby … then one of these panels probably already represents his work!
(Best bet for finding a Kirby Avengers Assemble is probably a later cover … but again, this is a PANEL Gallery).
But find one and I’ll add it. Can’t have too much Kirby.
Most, if not all are GREAT Kirby’s panels:
The first Avenger:
Kirby’s dynamic layout:
And, of course, it started like this:
All lovely, but none of them say Avengers Assemble!
(I wonder if they finally say it in this new movie?)
A cover is a panel on… cover!
That’s a good one, but our Russian judge says it is not a panel and thus does not qualify!
Or you’ll prefer the original art:
Here are The Avengers, created by Kirby (with some words and balloons placement by Stan Lee).
