[FROM THE OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE]
Answer the Call – Your First Look at “Avengers World #1”!
This January, the Avengers will be tested like never before – and it all starts in the exciting “Avengers World #1” – an all-new series from the star studded creative team of Jonathan Hickman, Nick Spencer and Stefano Caselli!
Following the events of INFINITY, our heroes have returned from the stars to find a very different Earth. New threats have emerged on the world they left behind, and new measures have risen up to deal with them. Earth has been marked an “Avengers World”, safely under the protection of Earth’s Mightiest.
But how will the nations and governments of the world respond to their claim – and what happens when it’s denied?
“The premise of the book is that it’s the Avengers, doing big things, because it’s an Avengers World now,” editor Tom Brevoort said in an interview with Marvel.com. “But while we’ll field the same potential lineup of 18+ Avengers in WORLD, we’ll specifically be looking to give greater screen time to some of the newer Avengers, like Hyperion, Smasher, Cannonball, Shang-Chi, Starbrand and Sunspot.”
Witness the beginning of a new globe-spanning epic of empires and armies – and the few heroes that stand between them and us this January in the blockbuster “Avengers World #1”!
