In Marvel’s Avengers, you can find comics by opening chests or completing missions. These comics don’t work like normal collectibles. Instead, they offer special stat bonuses, and continue to upgrade over time.

Here’s a complete list of comics in Marvel’s Avengers, how they work, and what each one does.

How comics work in Marvel’s Avengers

There are tons of in-game sources for comics in Marvel’s Avengers. You can get them from opening chests, finding them in campaign missions, or directly from weekly HARM Room challenges.

There are 10 comic sets currently in the game, each with several issues and themed after their own hero or group of heroes, like the Avengers. The comics give individual stat bonuses, like increased stun meter damage. But the more you collect a single issue, the more you’ll level it up.

For example, Ms. Marvel #2 gives a +0.5 bonus to Heroic Charge Rate the moment you find it. But when you find five duplicate issues, the stat upgrades slightly. You can continue to find comics and increase your stat bonuses this way.

There are 56 different issues currently in the game. Each week, there is a Priority HARM Room mission that guarantees a certain issue, making it a good way to round out your collection or increase that particular stat.

What does each comic do?

There are 10 different comic sets, and each individual issue offers its own stat bonus.
