Marvel NOW! Debuts Avengers #1-3 Covers

Marvel NOW! Debuts Avengers #1-3 Covers


Writer Johnathan Hickman’s twitter confirms a roster of over eighteen team members and counting for Marvel’s flagship title. The covers reveal team mainstays Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and the rest of the Avengers roster from the film Hawkeye, Black Window, and The Hulk. Additionally revealed are New Avengers era members Wolverine, Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, and Spider Woman, S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent and Cap collaborator, the Falcon, and X-Men Sunspot and Cannonball. A shadowy figure in the in the back corner of issue #1 is indiscernible, and could be an Asgardian or an Eternal. With Hickman’s run on Secret Warriors, I think it could be Eden Fesi. Let us know in the comment section who else you think will round out the roster!

“Marvel is pleased to present your first look at the jaw dropping covers to Avengers #1, Avengers #2 & Avengers #3 by superstar artist Dustin Weaver! This December, the most popular heroes in comics together on one unbeatable team, twice a month – only in Avengers!”

From the blockbuster creative team of Jonathan Hickman and Jerome Opena, the Avengers “go large,” expanding their roster and their sphere of influence to a global and even interplanetary level. When Captain America puts out his call – who will answer?

Each issue of Avengers includes a code for a free digital copy on the Marvel Comics app for iOS and Android devices and in the Marvel Digital Comics Shop. Additionally, each issue of Avengers features special augmented reality content available exclusive through the Marvel AR app – including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost. Avengers #1 will also ship with retailer personalized covers.

Big threats, big ideas, big idealism – these are the Avengers NOW!

This December, Jonathan Hickman and Jerome Opena redefine what it means to be Earth’s Mightiest in Avengers #1!
