Rick Remender will follow Warren Ellis as the writer of Secret Avengers come February.
Newsarama is reporting that Rick Remender will be the new writer on Secret Avengers in February 2012 with Gabriel Hardman taking on art duties. Remender, best known for his work on the critically-acclaimed Uncanny X-Force series, will be ushering the book into a new era with a new team line-up and mission.
The team will see the departure of Steve Rogers as team leader and the additions of Hawkeye and Captain Britain, with the former taking Rogers place as leader of the team. The Secret Avengers will be battling a new Masters of Evil team as well as Adaptoids, Avenger hunting robots based off of the original Super-Adaptoid in the vein of mutant hunting Sentinels.
While Remender was sparse on more details, the cover provided for Secret Avengers 21.1 reveals a new, Ultimate style costume for Hawkeye and a woman cosplaying as the Queen of Diamonds.
