The Jarvis-Heads

A Jarvis-Head makes an appearance
in AVENGERS Vol. 3, No. 10
courtesy of George Perez!  

The Jarvis-Heads* include the founders of the AvengersAssemble! Web site (in 1995), the Avengers Mailing List (or AML, in its original incarnation, beginning in 1996), and those who have made important contributions to either, over the years.  

The Jarvis-Head ranks include both longtime readers and comics professionals who have participated either on the AML/its offshoots, or by contributing material to the AvengersAssemble! site.

Know ye, then, the hallowed ranks of the Jarvis-Heads:

One of the Earliest Reviews of the AvengersAssemble! Web site:

"A gem of a site for Avengers fans of all ages. There are reviews, FAQs,
character profiles and so much more. It provides a nice blend of text and
graphics so you don't get bored waiting for pages to load. This is run by
people who love their subject matter and can produce an excellent site.
They are only fans, but this is on a par with some major net players."

Rating: 9/10
