NYCC 2012: AVENGERS Panel
The Avengers assembled today… or at least their creators did to discuss the future of their massively popular team. In attendance were Tom Brevoort, Rick Remender, Jonathan Hickman, Kieron Gillen, and Dennis Hopeless.
The first book was you guessed it! Avengers. The lineup will star 24 characters and have them act as squads for each story arc will different heroes in each Avenger squad. I am so excited for this book… just imagine the diversity! This will be written by Hickman.
Next up was the New Avengers which will focus on the Illuminati as they work behind the scenes to save the world. The cast is made up of Black Panther, Reed Richards AKA Mr. Fantastic, Namor, Doctor Strange, Beast, Iron Man, Captain America, and Black Bolt. This book will be gritty and dark. A realists marvel book. This too will be written by Hickman.
Then Secret Avengers was somewhat announced with Nick Spencer writing and Luke Ross on art. It will be SHIELD focused with Hawkeye, Mockingbird, Black Widow, Nick Fury, Taskmaster, Winter Soldier, and an unnamed new Iron Patriot. They will also have Hulk on stand-by if the situation gets a bit out of control.
That was it as fast as they assembled it was over, but all of it good information for the future of the world’s favorite heroic ensemble.
What Avenger title are you looking forward to most?
