NYCC: Hopeless and Walker To Bring Mad Feels to Avengers Undercover (AVENGERS ARENA SPOILERS)

Will the Avengers Arena sort-of-follow-up provoke the same fervor on Tumblr?

The final issue of Avengers Arena won't be in stores until next month, but possible imposter Dennis Hopeless and his partner in crime Kev Walker are already working on their next scheme to extract tears from the fans of Marvel's teen heroes via social media to power their doomsday device. Just announced at New York Comic Con is a new series from the duo called Avengers Undercover, which will be connected to Avengers Arena but is not considered a direct sequel or continuation. In the book, five survivors from the Arena go undercover as villains in order to infiltrate the ranks of the Masters of Evil, who have grown so large that they now control their own nation, Bagalia (this apparently happened in Secret Avengers, in case you, like the rest of the world, stopped reading that years ago).

Which characters will survive? Well, if you want the spoilers, it's Hazmat, Bloodstone, Deathlocket, Cammi, and Anachronism. According to Hopeless on CBR:

The characters who survived Murder World came out the other side much different than they went in. Those psychological scars from the "Arena" weigh heavily on all of the kids. They don't fit so well into their old lives. They no longer feel like they belong and they're all looking for a way to get back what they've lost. All of this leads them down the path of "Avengers Undercover."


Note: that doesn't mean those are the only characters to survive, as we saw another Arena cast member kissing young Scott Summers on the cover of the All New X-Men/Guardians of the Galaxy crossover.

Avengers Undercover, which Hopeless promises will not be as bleak as Avengers Arena, will feature the teen heroes deciding to infiltrate Bagalia in order on their own, and then discovering that they might fit in better as villains than they do as heroes.

Then they'll all be killed off, just to watch the fans suffer. Avengers Undercover starts in March.
