Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Avengers #25 by Jonathan Hickman and Salvador Larroca.

AVENGERS #25 (NOV130579)
Variant Cover by DUSTIN WEAVER
United against threats no single super hero could withstand – the Avengers have faced dangers unlike any other. But what happens when the danger is themselves? From the splintered fringes of time comes….the Avengers?! And the heroes of the past must face the horrors their present has wrought.

“After wrapping up INFINITY, Jonathan and I were pretty tired. Too tired to come up with anything new,” says Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “That whole All-New X-Men thing with the X-Men from the past has been working out pretty well for Brian Bendis, so we thought we’d jump on the bandwagon. Hence, the All-New Avengers! Sounds like the sort of thing that we’d do, doesn’t it?”

About Author

Warning: Pregnant women, the elderly, and children under 10 should avoid prolonged exposure to the Robot Overlord. Robot Overlord may suddenly accelerate to dangerous speeds. The Robot Overlord contains a liquid core, which if exposed due to rupture, should not be touched, inhaled, or looked at. If Robot Overlord begins to smoke, get away immediately. Seek shelter and cover head. Do not taunt the Robot Overlord.


  1. Is this an early April Fools joke? “We were too tired to come up with anything new, so we’re just going to retread something that may have worked in the past?” Sounds like it’s time to put in for early retirement and hire some new talent to me. And is that supposed to be Ant Man laying dead in the last sample. That might be shocking if a) Ant Man was a character that anybody actually cared about and b) if Marvel didn’t bring back “dead” characters every ten minutes. If they’re really out of ideas, they should let Sergio Aragones write and illustrate a few issues for them. I’d buy those. I’m certainly not going to plop down four bucks for a comic thrown together by somebody who openly admits they are fresh out of good ideas, though I suppose they deserve kudos for actually admitting to something I’ve suspected for quite some time, if this really isn’t a joke…

  2. I am unimpressed by the lack of originality embodied by this concept. One team from the Marvel 60’s coming to the future is awesome, two teams is just stupid and derivative. Sounds like the “House of Ideas” just wants to repeat itself. Who next? The All-New Defenders? Hell, bring back the All-New Champions while you’re at it. Maybe the All-New New Mutants? Ooops, better throw Wolverine or Iron Man in all of those teams to boost sales.
