Bleeding Cool previously reported on the new Marvel NOW! title Uncanny Avengers. by Rick Remender and Jerome Opena, with Captain America and Wolverine leading the team.
I’m told that, indeed, the aim of the book will be to mix X-Men and Avengers characters in the same post AVX team. The upcoming Comic Con edition Entertainment Weekly, that arrived for subscribers today states;
UNCANNY AVENGERS: Writer Rick Remender mixes Avengers characters like Captain America and Thor together with such X-Men as Rogue and Havok in the flagship title of Marvel NOW! “It’s a bridge book” says Remender “something that can delve into both worlds.” OCT 2012.
This Joe Quesada image has been doing the rounds for the entirety of the Marvel NOW! Relaunch.
As you can see, characters being redesigned will include Spider-Man, Hulk, Marvel Girl (the original, Jean Grey as well…), Nova, Iron Man, Nick Fury Jr, Capt. America, Rocket Raccoon, Wolverine, Invisible Woman, Cyclops, Cable and Thor. Notice, as Bleeding Cool predicted, there are costume redesigns everywhere, as part of the Marvel NOW! Relaunch. Cyclops in the red seems one of the more radical, and Thor looks a little like his Heroes Reborn costume, from Rob Liefeld…
And Rocket Raccoon? Could a Squirrel Girl romance on the cards??
Uncanny Avengers is scheduled for October and is labelled as the flagship title of the Marvel NOW! relaunch. Expect this to go online on EW.com later today.
