The number of pages in a Marvel comic is about the same as the number of weekdays in a month. Marvel could publish an all ages Avengers comic one page at a time, one day at a time, in newspapers! USA Today might be a good choice. The only question would be - include Spider-Man and Wolverine, or not? They presumably won't appear in the upcoming Avengers movie, so maybe the newspaper strip should avoid them too.

This is bad on so many levels.

The low quality of paper used in newspaper, it's made to degrade very quickly in a few days. The distribution of them means they can get rained on, fall into mud, and much more.

Then add in the already slow pace of newspaper comic dailies (which usually completely avoid having "plot" altogehter) with ONE PAGE A DAY?

Not to mention the demographic differences, and any time a comic proved to be too heavy for what people want to read in the early morning, censorship.

This would be horrible.
