What would a 1978 Avengers TV movie have been like? This!

As we finally gear up for the release of Marvel's The Avengers on May 4, you can't help but wonder: What if The Avengers had come out in, I don't know, 1978? Well, wonder no longer.

Taking footage from the late '70s Incredible Hulk series, along with vintage clips of everything from Captain America to Exo-Man, one YouTube maestro has cut together a trailer for The Avengers circa 1978.

The clip is pure retro awesomeness, and it has Marvel's greatest heroes facing off with none other than KISS, a vintage staple of the Marvel vault, who are being controlled by Loki.

Check out the clip below, and dream of the cheesy Avengers flick that could have been.
