The Avengers
France
Florent Toniello's The Avengers moves to a new host at chez.com, having been launched originally in 1995 one of the very first Avengers sites on the Internet. However, the site is slow to develop but its claim to the Hall of Fame is that it goes down as the first bilingual Avengers website on the Internet, being presented in French and English, albeit half-heartedly so in the latter language.
