Following a leak on Monday, new details have surfaced about Marvel Comics' Avengers: No Surrender, a weekly event launching in January with Avengers #675. The information is revealed in the publisher's FOOM promotional magazine, which goes on sale Wednesday.
According to Newsarama, U.S.Avengers and Uncanny Avengers will end for at least the duration of the three-month event, written by Mark Waid (Avengers), Al Ewing (U.S.Avengers) and Jim Zub (Uncanny Avengers), and illustrated by Pepe Larraz, Paco Medina and Kim Jacinto.
Ominously billed as "The Beginning of the End," the "No Surrender" storyline is said to feature of such classic Avengers characters as loyal longtime butler Edwin Jarvis and the Living Lightning, who's now apparently referred to simply as Lightning. The latter, introduced in 1990 in Avengers West Coast #63, is depicted on the promotional artwork for "No Surrender," alongside Rogue, Quicksilver, Thor, The Vision and what looks to be Beast.
Perhaps more notable, however, is the statue of the Avengers founders Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, Giant-Man, Wasp and Thor, now joined by Voyager, the mysterious new character teased earlier this month by Marvel. Marvel has promised more information about Voyager on Friday.
Marvel Comics’ Legacy initiative kicks off Sept. 27 with Marvel Legacy #1, a 50-page one-shot from writer Jason Aaron and artist Esad Ribic that promises to tell the “startling origin of the Marvel Universe” and underscore how “it’s all connected.”
