Avengers #676 Cover Adds New Member to Team's Iconic 1963 Debut Issue

Marvel Comics has debuted (via Newsarama) the cover to Avengers #676, Part 2 of the hotly anticipated "No Surrender" arc.

Building off the events of the game-changing Marvel Legacy one-shot, the cover to Avengers #676 by Mark Brooks is a meta retcon of the 1963 Avengers #1. Nearly identical to the actual cover for the team's inaugural issue and first appearance, the new rendition features the addition of the mysterious Voyager, a new character that has been retconned to be a founding member of Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Check out Brooks' cover below.

“Avengers: No Surrender” kicks off in January’s Avengers #675, written by Mark Waid, Al Ewing and Jim Zub, with art by Pepe Larraz. The weekly storyline will last for three months, with the writing team working together throughout while artist Kim Jacinto illustrates the second month’s chapter, and Paco Medina takes on the third month’s.

“The Earth has been stolen! That’s the kickoff to the wildest Avengers epic ever put to paper, a widescreen adventure with a massive cast and an unlimited budget,” SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort said in a statement. “Avengers past and present will be called upon to cope with a threat spanning out of the pages of MARVEL LEGACY #1. And like that oversized special, there’s a huge character return or two along the way that fans have been asking for—and one that they didn’t even know they wanted!”

Marvel Comics’ Legacy initiative kicked off Sept. 27 with Marvel Legacy #1, a 50-page one-shot from writer Jason Aaron and artist Esad Ribic that teased “startling origin of the Marvel Universe” and underscore how “it’s all connected.”
