Marvel Comics Announces AVENGERS Relaunch And A Team Roster Sure To Make MCU Fans Very Happy

With Jason Aaron's Avengers run nearing its end, Marvel Comics will relaunch the title this May with a brand new roster of Earth's Mightiest Heroes set to take centre stage. Find more details right here!

The Star. The Icon. The Witch. The Construct. The God. The Engineer. The King.

This May, writer Jed MacKay and artist C.F. Villa will take the reins of Earth's Mightiest Heroes in a new run of Avengers, with the comic book launching just in time for the team's milestone 60th anniversary.

Following Jason Aaron's monumental work on the title, we'll be introduced to an all-new Avengers lineup led by Captain Marvel that includes Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Black Panther, Scarlet Witch, and Vision (so, a very MCU-friendly roster of superheroes). 

This team will assemble when they're gifted with knowledge of "The Tribulation Events," a series of grand-scale disasters that will spark upheaval throughout the known universe. Amazing Spider-Man artist Stuart Immonen will make a celebrated return to Marvel Comics for the title, providing the ongoing series with breathtaking new covers.

We got our first glimpse at MacKay's Avengers plan in last month's year-ending one-shot, Timeless. There, readers followed Kang in his hunt for the unobtainable "Missing Moment," an ambitious quest that put him in direct conflict with the Twilight Court, a group of strange superheroes led by the mysterious Myrddin.

Now, a dangerous game is afoot and the prize is greater than anything imaginable...enter The Avengers! Will they be able to triumph in the face of the Tribulation Events and learn the truth behind these earth-shattering threats? Or will they be reduced to mere pawns in an extraordinary scheme beyond their comprehension?

The world is ever in peril, and a new team of Avengers mobilizes to meet any dangers that dare threaten the planet. But when Terminus attacks, a new and insidious danger rears its head: one that the Avengers know all too well, and one that comes to them in the most dangerous of guises: that of a friend.

"I'm extremely excited to be launching the latest chapter of Avengers with my old Black Cat teammate C.F. Villa!" MacKay says. "I grew up on the Avengers, weaving in and out of their 60s and 70s exploits as a kid, and having the opportunity to plot the course of Earth's Mightiest Heroes is a rush, especially coming from the street-level and/or weirdo niche I've been working in over the last couple of years."

"This is big, loud Avengers stuff - nothing in this story should ever feel small or inconsequential, and our lineup reflects that. Heavy hitters and iconic Avengers are to the fore - The Tribulation Events are coming, and only the Avengers can take them on."

Check out the cover for issue #1 below, and stay tuned for more details on Avengers ahead of its launch on May 17.
