Apparently the story-line that everyone is predicting for The Avengers sequel will in fact be told in comic form first. The Mad Titan known as Thanos will be in possession of the Cosmic Cube and the Guardians of the Galaxy will be teaming up with the Avengers to stop him. Is this Marvel’s way of telling us all how wrong we are about the direction that the Avengers movie franchise is taking? We shall see. Avengers Assemble has been entertaining thus far, I don’t think adding Thanos to the mix is going to do anything but help bring on more readers. Here is the official press release:
With the Mad Titan, Thanos, out of the reach from Earth’s Mightiest – his quest for power and domination over the Marvel Universe continues in Avengers Assemble #7! But the Avengers won’t go down without a fight, and courtesy of Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley, they’re bringing the Guardians of the Galaxy with them! But can even their combined strength defeat Thanos with a cosmic cube in his possession? Find out in Avengers Assemble #7, hitting comic shops everywhere, the Marvel Comics app, and Marvel Digital Comic Shop this September.
