As details of the sweeping “Marvel NOW” initiative begin to take shape, Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the first cover for “Uncanny Avengers,” the new series by Rick Remender and John Cassaday that pits a combined team of X-Men and Avengers against a reawakened Nazi-loving, mutant-hating Red Skull.
Although Marvel already revealed the “Uncanny Avengers” team will include Captain America, Wolverine, Thor and Havok, Cassaday’s art fills out the team roster with Scarlet Witch and Rogue.
“I’m not just smashing the heroes together, I’m smashing the villains together,” Remender told Entertainment Weekly earlier this week. “It becomes something unlike anything we’ve ever seen, with stakes that are so huge, it takes a team comprised of the best Avengers and the best X-Men to go take care of it.”Â
“Uncanny Avengers” debuts in October.
