In the wake of this summer’s event series Civil War II the ranks of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are getting a roster makeover. Shared exclusively through Comic Book Resources, the Alex Ross cover for Avengers #1 shows off a brand new team while the issue solicitation shows the return of a very familiar foe.
With teen heroes Ms. Marvel, Nova, and Spider-Man headed over to headline their own series Champions, Captain America, Thor and Vision are joined by The Wasp, Spider-Man and Hercules. The teasers for this series that came in the Marvel NOW! Previews Magazine last month seemed to include an armored hero, possibly Iron Man, that is missing from this cover.
At the start of All-New, All-Different Avengers the team ended up taking on a version of Kang the Conqueror, and now they are set to take on the villain once more.
