It had to happen. The Avengers as a sub-site of an adult website. Slightly off the beaten track as you might imagine. Doesn't have much to say, and the archived version of the site is thankfully eviscerated.

CultTv –
The Avengers & The New Avengers

United Kingdom
George (aka The Master) set up his CulTv website in 1996 and his Avengers/New Avengers page was reputedly a complete steal from James Dawe's The Unofficial Avengers Homepage. No early archives of this site are available, and the material was removed after protest. The later version that is archived contains news and reaction to the Warner Bros. movie and an episode list.
