The roster of heroes that make up the 1,000,000 BC Avengers contains some of the most powerful entities in the Marvel Universe: Odin, Iron Fist, Ghost Rider, Phoenix, Black Panther, Starbrand and Agamotto. Fans will be introduced to this powerhouse team inside the pages of Marvel Legacy #1, but that won’t be the last we see of them. Speaking with IGN, writer Jason Aaron revealed that the 1,000,000 BC Avengers will resurface somewhere down the line.
Asked if the team could resurface elsewhere, Aaron said, “Yeah, for sure. Absolutely. As for where you’ll see them, I can’t tell you that part. This is not a one-off appearance for these guys, this really sets up a story that will play out down the road a little bit. So this is the beginning of the next big story that I wanna tell. So, you’ll see them popping up in the next book that I do. I’ll say that.”
Aaron also explained the difference between Marvel Legacy #1 and last year’s DC Universe: Rebirth #1. “But, you know, this one’s a little bit different in that, I think it’s more of a primer of kind of everything that’s going on in Marvel and that we get check-ins and teases of a lot of different characters, a lot of different stories,” he shared. “So really, if you haven’t been reading anything in the Marvel universe, you don’t know anything that’s been going on with Spider-Man or Cap or whatever, this book gives you a taste of that. While at the same time, setting up a couple larger stories that will play out in a big way going forward in the Marvel universe. So, the prehistoric Avengers are one part of that. And then there’s another story that’s another huge part of that. So, some big teases, big surprises, big returns, that sort of thing.”
Speaking of returns, if you were holding out hope for a final-page reveal for a particular Alan Moore character, it sounds like you’re out of luck. “No, there’s no Marvelman popping up,” Aaron added.
Marvel Comics’ Legacy initiative kicks off in September with Marvel Legacy #1, a 50-page one-shot from writer Jason Aaron and artist Esad Ribic. The one-shot promises to tell the “startling origin of the Marvel Universe” and underscore how “it’s all connected.” It arrives in stores September 27.
