The Avengers is a classic TV show from the 1960s.
Although male and female characters as equal partners are rather commonplace today (Mulder and Scully in the X Files, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Remington Steele, Bones, etc.) it was The Avengers that paved the way with that groundbreaking partnership.
Cathy Gale (the original Avengers "girl") and Emma Peel remain excellent role models to this day.
To that end, The Thunder Child is now the host to the Avengers Screencap Gallery.
