As Earth's Mightiest Heroes prepare to enter a new Heroic Age at Marvel, the publisher is revisiting the team's earliest days with a perhaps a touch more scrutiny this spring in the pages of the brand new "Avengers: The Origin" five-issue miniseries.

Marvel Comics has provided us with an exclusive first look at the upcoming "Avengers: The Origin" #1 by Joe Casey ("Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes") and Phil Noto ("X-Men Origins: Ice Man"), an issue that won't see stores until April 7.

Here's how Marvel sums up the upcoming reading experience:

The true story of the Avengers is revealed right here! This five-issue extravaganza reveals previously untold details of the historic first meeting of Thor, Iron Man, the Hulk, Ant-Man and the Wasp! You only THINK you know the full story.

Check out our exclusive four-page preview, along with a cover by Noto, after the jump.
