Marvel announced an unprecedented 27th concurrent ongoing Avengers title at New York Comic Con today.
Hey, you know that catchphrase that's been tossed around all over Jonathan Hickman's Avengers? "It's an Avengers World?" Well, now it's a book by Hickman and Nick Spencer. Spencer is doing most of the writing work, but Hickman gets top billing because he's a fucking rock star, and don't you forget it. The concept of the book is that The Avengers have become the official protectors and representatives of the entire planet Earth, and now they have to deal with challenges both from within and without.
Hey, wait a minute...
The Earth isn't destroyed?! The Avengers aren't killed?! WTF, Marvel! You've spoiled Infinity!
Avengers World will share its lineup with Avengers, and it is reportedly a new series, not replacing any existing ones. It is as yet unknown whether the series will go "full panda bear mode," but the book certainly promises to be bigger. From an interview with Spencer on Newsarama:
Yeah, it's not just, the Avengers go to Asia, or the Avengers go to Europe. It's really about taking the map and blowing it up, just scaling everything upwards and exploring what the presence of these powers, these gods, these inventions would have on our geography. What it would mean in terms of hegemony, and borders, and international relations. The Avengers have gone out and spoken for the world; now the world is going to answer back.
Avengers World will be in stores sometime early next year.
