Alex Yarde eagerly awaits release of ALL-NEW ALL-DIFFERENT AVENGERS #1
The Secret Wars are over, some characters from the alternate universes destroyed during this cataclysmic event have found a home in the new Marvel universe, like Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales who is now Spider-Man 616 (main Marvel Universe). Secret Wars characters like Maestro, the evil future Hulk appearing in Marvel’s reboot of Future Imperfect survives and my favorite the all-female Avengers team A-Force will cross over from the event, and with them, the Battleworld that Secret Wars takes place on. This new mashed-up version of former alternate realities of Marvel Comics becomes the new reality post event. At the forefront, a brand new band of Earth’s mightiest lead the charge as the premier team of the new Marvel Universe. Marvel announced ALL-NEW ALL-DIFFERENT AVENGERS #1 – a new ongoing series from blockbuster writer Mark Waid (Daredevil, S.H.I.E.L.D.) and artistic duties from Adam Kubert (Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows) and Mahmud Asrar (All-New X-Men).
Tony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man, returns to lead an all-new and all-different team Avengers – Captain America [Sam Wilson], Thor [Jane Foster], Vision, Miles Morales, a.k.a. Spider-Man, Nova, and Ms. Marvel! This book is at the top of the heap for me among the whopping 45 new issues coming this fall, Kicking off the new series, writer Mark Waid plans no training period and a baptismal by chaos and WAR! “As faithful NOVA readers will recognize, the main villain in our first story – Warbringer – has strong ties to Sam Alexander [a.k.a. Nova], but does Sam dare confess this to the team after the havoc Warbringer wreaks in New York City?”
Waid also plans to place hurdle after hurdle in front of this new team including a challenge a majority of people have to deal with every day – financial responsibility. “One of the Avengers’ often-undiscussed ‘superpowers’ has always been Tony Stark’s boundless fortune. As readers of Brian Bendis’s upcoming INVINCIBLE IRON MAN will see, Tony can no longer be the team’s sole financial resource–meaning that our Avengers will have to operate a little more modestly and with limits to their resources, making their battles even more challenging.”
The Avengers assemble this fall for a team that will truly live up to the name the series title implicitly states that is all-new, all-different, and like no other Avengers team ever. “This team is a group of characters that you’ve never seen operate together before, no matter how long you may have been reading comics, and yet it’s also a team that upholds the Avengers’ traditions—there’s nobody among these characters that you look at and feel hasn’t earned their place on the team or in the spotlight, the way some past Avengers occasionally have,” says Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “And it’s possibly the most real-world reflective Avengers team of all time, with only a single white male to be found amidst the membership rolls.”
I’m SOLD! This is the perfect time to start reading comics again and ALL-NEW ALL-DIFFERENT AVENGERS is arguably the one book that will be essential to get a handle on all the interesting changes in the Marvel Universe post Secret Wars. Marvel seems to continuing in the right direction in terms of diversity in comics, as I wrote about in July last year when the New Thor and Captain America was first announced The Mills of the Gods: Marvel Making Positive Changes .
The Avengers reassemble this fall as a young, diverse team of Marvel’s mightiest take on all-new foes, all-new challenges and present an all-new team in ALL-NEW ALL-DIFFERENT AVENGERS #1!
