Marvel revealed the first three covers for Hickman and Opena's Avengers, by Dustin Weaver, showing both the lineup of the team and a major plot point for the series.
Check out the interlocking covers below, which were revealed on Marvel.com this morning. The covers combine to show the Avengers team, which we now consists of new member Cannonball, Captain Marvel, Captain America, Green Hulk, Wolverine, The Falcon, Black Widow, Thor, what appears to be Sunspot or maybe a black Human Torch, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Spider-Woman, and Spider-Man. There is also a mystery figure seen in the background between Captain Marvel and Captain America. In addition, the cover reveals that the first story arc will feature the team going on a search for a cure to a mystical malady affecting Thor, causing his body to become grotesquely deformed, with a shrunken head, enormous hands and feet, and a penis that looks suspiciously like the Black Widow's pistol. Avengers #1 is in stores in December!
