Exactly ten years ago, the website Steedumbrella was launched. At first website was a copy of the Russian-language Wikipedia pages about TV series The Avengers and its main performers, and then, over the years, expanded to a huge resource (over 1000 pages) that covers different areas around the series.
The website continues to delight with regular updates and in the coming days will begin the posting of scans of some DVD sets of the series. In addition, new pages on DVD and Blu Ray sets will be presented. In the future, work on the publication of Avengers episodes will continue and a page about the French-language film, consisting of two episodes of the series "The Avengers", will be presented.
The fan group Steedumbrella would like to thank all those who have contributed to the
development of the website over these 10 years and maintained interest in the series in Russia.
