Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson), director of the espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D., arrives at a remote research facility during an evacuation. The Tesseract, an energy source of unknown potential, has activated and opened a portal through space, from which the exiled Norse god Loki (Tom Hiddleston) steps through. Loki steals the Tesseract, and uses his abilities to control the minds of several S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel, including Agent Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), and the physicist Dr. Erik Selvig (Stellan Skarsgard), to aid in his getaway.
In response to the attack, Fury reactivates the Avengers Initiative. Agent Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) travels to India to find and recruit Dr. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), while Agent Philip Coulson (Clark Gregg), visits Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and requests that he review Dr. Selvig's research on The Tesseract. Fury himself approaches Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) with an assignment to retrieve the Tesseract from Loki. During his exile, Loki met and allied with a warmongering alien race called the Chitauri. In exchange for the Tesseract, the Chitauri agree to help Loki subjugate Earth.
Iron Man, Captain America, and Agent Romanoff travel to Germany to apprehend Loki, who is stealing iridium needed to stabilize the Tesseract and demanding that the civilians kneel before him. After a battle with the heroes, Loki surrenders and is escorted to a S.H.I.E.L.D. plane. However, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Loki's adoptive brother and the Norse god of thunder, arrives and takes Loki from S.H.I.E.L.D., intending to reason with him on his own. Thor gets into a confrontation with Iron Man in a forest, and after Captain America breaks up the fight, Loki is eventually taken to S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Helicarrier, a flying aircraft carrier, and placed in a cell designed to contain The Hulk.
The Avengers argue amongst themselves over how to deal with Loki, and Rogers discovers that S.H.I.E.L.D. are planning to harness the Tesseract's power to develop weapons. Fury admits that the events in New Mexico a year before made S.H.I.E.L.D. aware of other extraterrestrial races that may threaten Earth. Weapons developed from the the Tesseract would form a means of deterrence. As the group argues, Hawkeye, along with Loki's other possessed agents, attack the Helicarrier and disable its engines. As Iron Man and Captain America attempt to restart the damaged engines, Dr. Banner transforms into The Hulk (voiced by Lou Ferrigno), despite Romanoff's efforts to calm him down, and runs amok inside the ship, battling Thor. During a fight with Hawkeye, Romanoff discovers that knocking him unconscious breaks Loki's mind control. Meanwhile, Loki escapes, traps Thor in the cell that contained him, and ejects it from the ship, but Thor escapes as the cell falls and crashes into a field. Agent Coulson tries to fend off Loki with an experimental gun, but Loki stabs him in the chest, killing him.
Fury uses Agent Coulson's death to motivate the Avengers into working as a team. Stark and Rogers realise that defeating the team will not be enough for Loki; he needs to overpower them in a public way so as to validate himself as ruler of Earth. Using a Tesseract-powered device built by Dr Selvig, Loki opens a portal to the Chitauri fleet over Manhattan, summoning an invasion. The Avengers rally in defense of New York, but quickly conclude they will be overwhelmed as wave after wave of Chitauri soldiers descend. Captain America, Thor and Hawkeye evacuate civilians, while Iron Man battles with enormous, flying serpents covered in metal armour, and Dr. Banner transforms into the Hulk again and goes after Loki, beating him into submission. Agent Romanoff makes her way to the portal device, where Dr. Selvig, freed of Loki's mind control, reveals that Loki's staff can be used to close the portal.
Meanwhile, Fury's superiors attempt to end the invasion by launching a nuclear missile at Manhattan. Iron Man intercepts the missile and takes it through the portal toward the Chitauri fleet, where it detonates. Iron Man's armour runs out of power and he falls back through the portal, quickly plummeting to the ground, but The Hulk catches him and he survives. With the Earth saved, Thor escorts Loki and the Tesseract back to their home-world of Asgard, and the other Avengers go their separate ways. Fury notes that the Avengers will most likely band together again if and when the world needs them.
During a post-credits scene, the Chitauri leader tells his shadowy master that attacking Earth "would be to court death". The master turns and smiles.
