Press Release

Next year, critically acclaimed creators Rick Remender (Uncanny X-Force) & Gabriel Hardman (Hulk) take readers deep under cover in Secret Avengers! Captain America has tasked Hawkeye with putting together a brand new team, ushering in a new era for the Secret Avengers. When the call is put out for heroes to save the Marvel Universe from its most dangerous foes, the biggest powerhouses will answer.  America’s Secret Soldier – Venom, The UK’s premiere super hero – Captain Britain, Founding Avenger – Giant-Man and more will join ranks to create a team that will have fans everywhere demanding more. Packed to the brim with action, intrigue, insurmountable odds AND covers by legendary artist Arthur Adams, no fan can miss this!

“Our opening arc will have a big secret war, a big secret new world, a big secret new race, a big team death, a big secret team betrayal, and begin a secret affair. High stakes, intrigue, and tons of character drama as we unearth the mystery surrounding familiar automaton villains reimagined as members of a new species–The Descendants!” exclaimed Remender. “I’m a tremendous fan of Gabe’s work; he’s one of the best storytellers in the business, always puts clarity first, while still managing engaging and dynamic action. I’m beyond excited to have him joining me on Secret Avengers. And having Art Adams on covers is truly a dream come true.”

Kicking off this January in Secret Avengers #21.1 by Remender and red-hot artist Patrick Zircher, fans can get a taste of what we’ve got planned before Gabriel Hardman jumps on board as the ongoing artist with Secret Avengers #22.

“Secret Avengers gives me the opportunity to draw an exciting group of heroes who I’ve never drawn before as well as design new villains and new worlds. Hawkeye, Beast and Valkyrie have been favorites of mine since I was a kid. That combined that with the crazy big, black ops tinged action/adventure makes this a book I had to draw,” explained Hardman. “Rick is known for his wildly inventive scripts and he really delivers with Secret Avengers. This is an epic story that will have big repercussions. That’s the kind of storytelling I like to be involved with.”

With Hawkeye at the helm, Captain America’s strike force team must dodge Adaptoids, Descendants and the biggest threats to the Marvel Universe…without anyone knowing, in Secret Avengers!

    I like the Secret Avengers and will probably continue to follow the series once it “catches up” to Steve Rogers being Captain America again. The fact that there’s a Human Torch in one of the shots is interesting (Johnny Storm? The Original Torch? Toro?). I like Hawkeye’s more modern “Ultimates” look as I’ve often thought that a cowl would be kinda confining for an archer, especially since he really doesn’t have a “Secret Identity” anymore. The depictions of Hank McCoy are incredibly bad. He looks more like one of the Asgardian Trolls on a bad hair day than The Beast. Having long-time Spiderman character Flash Thompson in the Avengers now should be interesting as well as having a Giant Man and Ant Man in the group at the same time (yet different people). And I’ve been a fan of Valkyre since her introduction in the Defenders so any book with Val I’m interested in.

      Pardon me for asking, but… Where’d you get the Giant-Man & Ant-Man at the same time but different people thing from? I see EITHER Giant or Ant, and presume both are Mr. Pym. Also, I’m likewise curious about whether Johnny’s on his way back.

        Ant-Man and Giant-Man appear together on the orange Adams variant cover. Look on the arrow Hawkeye is firing. Also, the current Ant-Man is Eric O’Grady, who has been appearing in Secret Avengers off and on since the beginning.

        The way that they’re drawing the face on that Torch makes me think it’s Jim Hammond, the original android Human Torch.

    I stopped buying Secret Avengers because I couldn’t stand the awful Mike Deodato art. If he’s gone, I’ll probably be able to start picking this title up again.
