At the Marvel NOW! Avengers panel were: Axel Alonso (Editor in Chief), Tom Brevoort (SVP Executive Editor), Rick Remender (writer Uncanny Avengers), Jonathan Hickman (writer Avengers, New Avengers), Dennis Hopeless (writer Avengers Arena), Kieron Gillen (writer Young Avengers), and Arune Singh (Director of Communications).

The panel opened with discussion of  Uncanny Avengers and moved quickly to on to Avengers by Jonathan Hickman. Hickman said that the title will be the "biggest" Avengers book Marvel's done. Hickman also said that New Avengers is the book is the most excited to write.

On Avengers: Arena, Hopeless claims that the last page of the book will "stun and excite fans".

Brevoort discussed Secret Avengers, starting in February by Nick Spencer and Luke Ross. The book will have a focus around S.H.I.E.L.D.  with missions so secret the heroes can't about them until they've been fulfilled.

Gillen said that he had to reinvent the Young Avengers and make it a title about becoming a young adult. Young Avengers includes Wiccan, Hulkling, Marvel Boy, Miss America, and Kid/Teen Loki but the cast will shrink, grow, and change over time.

Avengers Assemble by Kelly Sue Deconnick and Stefano Caselli was also mentioned briefly. The Marvel NOW! version starts in November.

Next was Q&A time. A few tidbits:
- No plans for the 50 State Initiative but the characters will be appearing in other books
- Remender says that Red Skull will have a lot of new powers
- Secret Warriors and S.H.I.E.L.D. stuff will show up in Uncanny Avengers
- S.H.I.E.L.D. #5 is done, but waiting for more on #6 to be done before releasing it
- Hulk wearing armor will be explained in issue 3 of Indestructible Hulk
- Avengers will have a 24 person roster and will be more international
- A new female Captain Universe, Hyperion and the first human member of the Imperial Guard will appear in Avengers
- Tease of a possible cosmic title relaunch at Cup O Joe (which turned out to be Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy)
- Remender will not promise there will be no FrankenCap in Marvel NOW!
Captain America
- Simon Williams (Wonder Man) will be dealt with in Bendis Avengers run
