‘Avengers Assemble’ Event To Bring Jason Aaron’s Run On Avengers To Merciful End

Starting in November, Marvel Comics “visionary” Jason Aaron will thankfully conclude his work on/damage to the Avengers mythos in Avengers Assemble!

For nearly five years, the writer has penned a confusing Avengers story across over 60 issues of Avengers as well as titles like Avengers Assemble and Avengers of 1,000,000 B.C. and now he’ll finally stop whatever all of that was with one big crossover! Avengers Assemble will kick off in November’s Avengers Assemble: Alpha one-shot before crossing over between issues of Avengers and Avengers Forever beginning in December. Aaron will be joined by a trio of comic talents including artist Bryan Hitch as well as regular Avengers and Avengers Forever artists Javier Garrón and Aaron Kuder.

Avengers Assemble: Alpha cover

From throughout time and the far corners of the Multiverse, the Mightiest Heroes of All the Earths are assembling as never before for a battle beyond all imagining and common sense. A war that will take us from the prehistoric beginnings of an Earth under assault by the greatest villains who’ve ever lived to the watchtower that stands at the dark heart of the all and the always, where an army of unprecedented evil now rises.

In Avengers #63, it’s the showdown fans have been waiting for—The Battle of 1,000,000 B.C.! The Avengers stand face-to-face with their prehistoric counterparts, the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC! But if the two groups cannot work together, they have no hope of defeating Doom Supreme and his marauding band of Multiversal Masters of Evil, who have come to erase all of Marvel history as we know it.

In Avengers Forever #12 witness The Siege of Infinity Tower! The all Steve Rogers Howling Commandos. The interstellar air force that is the Carol Corps. The Star Panther. The God of Fists. The Invincible Ant-Man, Tony Stark. Together, they are the goofiest army of Avengers ever assembled. But will they be enough to protect the Avengers Tower at Infinity’s End? Because Mephisto has come to claim that tower’s secrets, and he’s brought an army of his own.

“Four years of Avengers stories. Threads from really every major series I’ve worked on throughout my last decade and a half at Marvel, from Ghost Rider to Thor. It all leads to this. The biggest Avengers story I could possibly imagine,” Aaron said. “Featuring a cavalcade of characters from across creation. And I’m so deeply thrilled and honored that it all kicks off with an oversized Alpha issue that’s being drawn by the legendary Bryan Hitch, who I’m getting to work with here for the very first time. Avengers Assemble. Say the words like a prayer. It’s the only thing that can save you.”
