It’s no surprise that Marvel is throwing as much as they can into Marvel NOW!, their soft-reboot of the Marvel Universe. It seems like all of their characters are getting a make-over, from the Fantastic Four to the X-Men to Deadpool. In addition to that, it looks like a new team of Avengers will be assembling soon.
A new book starring members of the Avengers will be hitting stores in November. Though the title of the book is unclear as the press release from Marvel merely touts the word “Assemble”, it will be written by Kelly Sue DeConnick and drawn by Stefano Caselli. The teaser image provided by Marvel shows Captain America, Iron Man, Spider Woman, and the Hulk jumping into action. I would imagine that this is the core team, but it’s likely that other characters will join them. Maybe even Carol Danvers, the former Ms. Marvel who became the new Captain Marvel thanks to DeConnick herself.
So what’s the deal with the new title? I have no idea. It could be good. It could be fluff. Guess we’ll find out in November.
