The line falls under Marvel's "Avengers Assemble" marketing banner, which included the Iron Man: The Armored Avenger and Captain America: The First Avenger toy lines. This was used as a lead up to 2012's The Avengers film.

Unlike previous 3.75" action figure lines based on movies, Hasbro did not do a comic series with this line. All of the figures were based on the movie.

Joe led to the coining of the term "action figure". G.I. Joe's appeal to children has made it an American icon among toys.
