The mystery of the Avengers of 1,000,000 B.C. will begin a little earlier than expected.
Announced in June as part of writer Jason Aaron and artist Esad Ribic's plans for Marvel Legacy #1, the prehistoric team of heroes brings together Odin, Iron Fist, Star Brand, Phoenix, Agamotto, Black Panther and Ghost Rider (atop a flaming mammoth, no less) to confront "something very big [...] buried deep in the earth."
For everybody who expressed interest in the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC: Generations: Thor. That's all I'm going to say.

Although that 50-page one-shot doesn't arrive until September, Marvel Comics Executive Editor Tom Brevoort has signaled fans may not have to wait that long to meet Earth's (First) Mightiest Heroes.
Indeed, that's all Brevoort said on the topic, leaving fans to add the Avengers of 1,000,000 B.C. to the list of questions about Marvel Legacy #1 and the Generations one-shots, which will bring together Marvel's legacy heroes with their predecessors. Those kick off Wednesday with Generations: Banner Hulk & Totally Awesome Hulk #1, by Greg Pak and Matteo Buffagni.
