Avengers finale/relaunch

Post by Ross » Sat Jan 16, 2010 6:49 pm

I bet most people have already heard about this:

Anyone have any info/guesses as to how the franchise will look when it relaunches? I wondered what they'd do with Dark Avengers, I guess this answers that question (have it disappear in the relaunch, I'm imagining).

Well, from what I've understood :
- There will still be a Bendis/Immonen Avengers series (of indeterminate title)
- Avengers:Initiative will be relaunched as "Avengers Academy" (still written by Gage)

And, er, that's all I know so far. I'd be really surprised if Mighty Avengers didn't have a replacement, though.

Been something of a major discussion over on the Jinxworld boards... We're fairly certain of a single core Avengers title (some have even thought it might go three issues a month a la Spider-Man), and there was a rumor floating around of a Christos Gage/Mike McKone "Avengers Academy" series to replace Avengers: The Initiative. Beyond that, not sure...
