“Avengers Standoff” Officially Kicks Off, Captain America Turns 75 & More Marvel March Highlights

In addition to previously announced events, including the launch of “Apocalypse Wars,” Marvel’s March solicitations contain a number of surprises, new series and anniversary celebrations.

“Black Widow,” “Avengers: Standoff” & More in Marvel’s March 2016 Solicitations

You can check out the publisher’s complete solicitation text and cover images for March 2016 here, and read on for the biggest highlights and announcements of the month.

  • “Invincible Iron Man” #7 introduces a new threat to the Marvel Universe, and contains “hints to next summer’s insane Marvel blockbuster event.”
  • “Avengers Standoff” officially kicks off with “Assault on Pleasant Hill Alpha” #1, by Nick Spencer and Jesus Saiz. The crossover issues also arrive, with “All-New, All-Different Avengers” seeing the titular team face off against the Uncanny Avengers.
  • “Captain America: Sam Wilson” celebrates 75 years of Cap with an oversized issue featuring stories by Greg Rucka, Mike Perkins, Tim Sale and John Cassaday, exploring the character throughout history. Plus, another “Standoff” tie-in.
  • Cap’s anniversary is also celebrated in a special magazine that looks back on the hero’s storied history. The magazine is free, unless you order one of the special covers by Jack Kirby, John Byrne or Alex Ross; those will have a cover price of $9.99.
  • Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham’s classic “Miracleman” story returns with “The Silver Age” #1 and 2.
  • A number of new series debut in March, including “International Iron Man,” “Black Widow,” “Hyperion,” “X-Men ’92” and “Mockingbird.”
  • A new weekly miniseries, “Infinity Entity” arrives, written by Jim Starlin and illustrated by Alan Davis. The story features the return of Adam Warlock, the return of the original Avengers (?) and an appearance by the Guardians of the Galaxy.
  • For those who are a little confused as to how post-“Secret Wars” continuity works, the publisher has you covered with a new guide to the All-New, All-Different Marvel Universe.
  • Peter Quill rejoins the Guardians as Star-Lord, leaving the question of how Kitty Pryde — aka Star-Lord — will react.
  • “Silver Surfer” celebrates the character’s 50th anniversary with a major event. “Not a dream. Not a hoax. This is really happening. A major turning point in the life of Norrin Radd that will profoundly change the saga of the Silver Surfer.”
  • The fallout of Kamala Khan finding herself ousted from the Avengers in February is explored in “Ms. Marvel” #5.
  • ’90s X-Men villain team the Dark Riders return in a two-part story in “Uncanny X-Men” #4-5.
  • The print version of the “Spider-Man and Silk: The Spider(fly) Effect” Infinite Comic arrives.
  • “Squirrel Girl” kicks off a quick crossover with “Howard the Duck.”
  • March also features “Story Thus Far” variant covers, as did February’s solicits. While Marvel declined to comment on what they are, exactly, they’re likely tied to the publisher’s promotion designed to get readers to pick up its newly-launched series issues beyond #1.
  • The first round of All-New, All-Different Marvel hardcovers and trade paperbacks arrive, along with an oversized omnibus edition of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming’s “Powers” Vol. 1.
