It’s independent Avengers meets relationship Champions in Marvel Legacy’s next crossover from Mark Waid, Jesus Saiz, and Humberto Ramos!
Traditional comic book wisdom dictates that one runs crossover events to boost sales after they’ve started to lag since the last line-wide rebranding, relaunch, or reboot that follows a blockbuster super-mega-crossover event. But the ever-innovating House of Ideas is breaking convention and launching several crossovers at the same time as Marvel Legacy. Truly, this is the sort of industry-change we were told to expect.
Earlier this week, we told you about the first X-Book crossover, Mojo Worldwide, running through X-Men Blue and X-Men Gold. Today, we have news of the second crossover that will launch with Marvel Legacy, this time between Avengers and Champions.

WORLDS COLLIDE Part 2
The titanic clash between the Champions and the Avengers continues! Since they were old enough to say the word “Avengers,” the Champions have idolized Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
