All-New, All-Different Avengers Coming From Waid, Kubert, Asrar


Marvel isn’t putting the “All-New, All-Different” tag in every title it’s launching after Secret Wars, but it will be used to describe the new ongoing adventures of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

While the lineup of the Avengers in the new Marvel Universe has been known since Free Comic Book Day, Marvel finally took the wraps off the series that will feature that roster. All-New, All-Different Avengers will debut this fall, written by Mark Waid and with art by Adam Kubert and Mahmud Asrar — switching off arcs, maybe?

It’s an interesting team the creators are assembling, because only Tony Stark as Iron Man and the Vision are really Avengers fixtures. Sam Wilson has only been the team’s Captain America for a short time, and the Jane Foster Thor has yet to officially be seen as a member. The rest of the new team skews young, with Nova (Sam Alexander), Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan) and Spider-Man (Miles Morales) all getting a baptism by fire.

Besides the youngsters, the team has to face another big change in its status quo, as it won’t be able to rely upon the financial might of its genius, billionaire, playboy philanthropist leader.

“One of the Avengers’ often-undiscussed ‘superpowers’ has always been Tony Stark’s boundless fortune,” Waid said in a press release. “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.”

In other words, better limit that property damage rookies! The first arc will feature a villain Nova knows well, Warbringer, and there won’t be any time to train the newbies. Marvel is calling this the most unique team to ever carry the Avengers name, and it certainly looks like that might be the case. As long as you don’t count the Great Lakes Avengers, that is …

‘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,” Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort said in a press release.  “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.”

All-New, All-Different Avengers will do its best to live up to that name when the first issue hits stores and digital in October.
