A New Red Widow for Putin’s Pet Project in Next Week’s Avengers #700

Avengers #700… well, Avengers #10 if you’re some kind of loser who doesn’t follow the Legacy numbers… hits stores next week, and Marvel’s got something special planned for the anniversary. It’s the return of Russia’s top superhero team, the Winter Guard, under the direct orders of a man who’s only two degrees of separation away from Marvel Chairman Ike Perlmutter (they’re both best friends with Donald Trump): Russian President Vladimir Putin!

Putin is getting the band back together, including some old faces, like Ursa Major…

And what appears to be a new version of the Red Widow…

Ava Orlova, we hardly knew ye.

Avengers #700… er, #10… hits stores next Wednesday, comrades!

After 700 issues of saving the world, you’d think the Avengers would be due some celebration. But instead the whole world seems to be gunning for them, especially Namor’s fearsome new Defenders of the Deep and the reimagined Russian Super-Soldiers of the Winter Guard. And that’s not to mention the shocking surprise the U.S. government has in store for our heroes. Plus: The all-new Agents of Wakanda! The mystery of the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC deepens! A key revelation concerning the resurrection of Wolverine! And the next startling new Avenger is revealed!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
