A major part of Marvel Comics pitch for their upcoming Marvel Legacy initiative that starts in October has been about reconnecting with parts of their past. That connection starts right away with the Marvel Legacy #1 one-shot where Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic will introduce the 1,000,000 B.C. Avengers.
Ahead of the September one-shot, the publisher has begun to reveal some of those members of the ancient Avengers team starting with Starbrand and Black Panther. Each character is a more prehistoric version of the heroes we know in the present day, with the older Starbrand being more of a hulking beast than the current holder of that heroic legacy.
Marvel’s original release about the new yet ancient team of heroes included Odin, the Phoenix, the first sorcerer supreme Agamotto, an Iron Fist and a Ghost Rider alongside Starbrand and Black Panther.
Marvel Legacy #1 arrives on September 27.
