Marvel’s recent Avengers cinematic blockbuster made this team of misfit superheroes the most popular on the planet, but fans of the comic books would argue that the Avengers have always been a part of comic book royalty. It’s true though, the Avengers has been one of Marvel’s most successful franchises, even before the blockbuster films were released. With the likes of Ant Man, Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor, and others making up the franchise, what is there not to love?
The upcoming comic books are fittingly titled as The All-New, All-Different Avengers. Although Marvel is remaining tight lipped on the actual lineup, we can confirm that new Female Thor, Ms. Marvel, and some form of The Incredible Hulk will be in the team, along with Iron Man, and possibly Pepper Potts in special armor designed by Tony Stark.
These are exciting times for comic book fans. While we can still look forward to the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, the new Avengers comic series looks set to pump some fresh blood in to a franchise that has existed on paper since 1963.
The great thing about our beloved comics is that we don’t have to wait years for new episodes, and drastic changes like this can be made without everybody losing their minds. Look out on May 2 for the first issue, which will conveniently fall on Free Comic Book Day.
