Marvel Comics’ week of cover reveals continues with the official debut of Mike Deodato’s cover for “New Avengers” #24. The “Avengers vs. X-Men” tie-in issue written by Brian Michael Bendis with interiors by Deodato hits stands in April. The “New Avengers” cover follows Jim Cheung’s “Avengers vs. X-Men” #1 cover art unveiled yesterday.
“We’ve got a very interesting arc for the Avengers,” Bendis said during a 2011 conference for the event. “What’s been going on lately is that they’ve been tested…they’re wondering what it means to be an Avenger…when the world is throwing one terrible disaster at them after another…it takes a toll on a society and the Avengers are left to take the blame for it, as it were. They’re going to want answers from Captain America.”
Bendis also added characters pulling double duty on both teams — like Wolverine and Storm — will play a big part in “Avengers vs. X-Men.”
