All-New, All-Different Avengers
Creative Team: Mark Waid, Mahmud Asrar & Adam Kubert
While the release of the FCBD issue All-New, All-Different Avengers #1 made it pretty clear that Mark Waid would be helming the new flagship Avengers comic, the series has now been confirmed by The Wall Street Journal. Waid will write the book, while Mahmud Asrar and Adam Kubert will alternate art duties (allowing the series to ship more than 12 issues a year). The team lineup will be the same as that of the FCBD issue (Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Ms. Marvel, Spider-Man, Nova and Vision), though this series will explore the origin and formation of the team. The recent Nova villain Warbringer will serve as the team's first major threat.
â€œWe get to do something that hasnâ€™t been done since the beginning of the series back in 1963, which is we get to tell an origin story for the Avengers as the team rebuilds from the ground up,â€ Waid told the WSJ.
The new team is unique for several reasons, including the racially diverse lineup. â€œI think that potentially gives you a wider chance to connect with a wider spectrum of the audience who may be able to see and invest themselves in the characters,â€ Executive Editor Tom Brevoort said.
In addition, it seems that the team will no longer have access to either Avengers Tower or Stark or S.H.I.E.L.D. funding, leaving them juggling limited resources. They also have to contend with the fact that three members are teenagers and have to balance their school lives with their superhero activities.
