Marvel Announces the U.S.Avengers

Once upon a time in Marvel Comics there were The Avengers, occasionally the West Coast Avengers and that was more or less it in terms of Avengers-branded superteams. But within the past decade it’s become common for multiple Avengers associations to operate concurrently – often with different and occasionally opposing mission statements. These teams allowed fans a chance to see surprising character-combinations and interactions between heroes they might otherwise never have seen. With the Marvel Universe once again thrown into disarray by another Civil War event, it was inevitable that new teams would once again emerge.

Now, Marvel has announced that Fall 2016 will bring an all-new Avengers team with an offbeat, patriotic edge: The U.S.Avengers

Washington Post is reporting the series is coming from highly sought-after writer Al Ewing and artist Paco Medina; the story will involve mutant billionaire Roberto Da Costa (formerly “Sunspot” of The New Mutants), a fiercely-patriotic Brazilian immigrant to the U.S., purchasing the onetime supervillain outfit A.I.M. and rebuilding it into the security-focused “American Intelligence Mechanics” – complete with its own star-spangled Avengers team featuring an unusual assortment of old and new heroes. The series was announced via a press-release which, along with the bombastic cover art, teases a tone that takes a tongue-in-cheek (if not outright satirical) approach to the eyebrow-raising concept of superheroes as patriotic pep squad:

“The U.S.Avengers will dare any danger – no matter how unbelievably awesome that danger might be – to defend freedom, democracy, apple pie, bald eagles and the electric guitar!”
