COMICS: Marvel Teases a New Avengers Team in Cryptic Images

Over the last several days, Marvel Comics has been releasing a number of teaser images with the tagline “From the Ashes, a New Team of Avengers Assembles”, featuring a selection of characters who are likely to make up the new team’s roster.

VISIONVOODOOROGUE SCARLETWITCH QUICKSILVER

Now, there’s a lot to unpack in these images.

The Vision’s quote is probably the most cryptic, in that it’s uncertain who he’s referring to when he says “Eve”.

Doctor Voodoo’s quote, is easily the most ominous, and suggests that there will certainly be a high body count central to the first arc of this new Uncanny run.

Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch’s quotes are the clearest of all those so far released, with the reference obviously being to the revelation that [SPOILER!!!] Magneto is not in fact their blood father. While this is likely a maneuver by Marvel/Disney to clear the understandably murky waters surrounding the origins of these characters and their connection to the X-franchise, it is apparent from these images that it will not simply be a throwaway retcon moment.

What are your thoughts on this new lineup? Will you be picking this up next month?
