This week's DVD releases include some popular crime-fighting teams.

"THE AVENGERS," GRADE A: Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and the rest of the gang come together to fight Loki and an alien invasion. Chris Hemsworth and Jeremy Renner star. The real hero of "The Avengers" is not Iron Man, Thor or even Nick Fury. It's Joss Whedon. The film's director managed to pull off the Herculean task of blending four huge Marvel Comics film franchises to give each time to shine individually and as a group.

"AMERICAN HORROR STORY: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON," GRADE A: The creative team behind "Nip/Tuck" and "Glee" have taken aim at reinventing the family dramas with "American Horror Story." The FX series slips between sadomasochism and the supernatural to examine the horrors of everyday life from adultery to a weak economy.

"RESCUE ME: THE COMPLETE SERIES," GRADE A-: Denis Leary's cable series about the strange characters who inhabit a New York firehouse is one of the most underappreciated series to air on TV.

Also new:

"BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, PART 1": Next entry in the "DC Universe Animated Original Movies" series.
