Press Release

This May, the collision of the Avengers and New Avengers is imminent as treacheries come to light in AVENGERS #29 – an Original Sin tie-in!

The Illuminati, a secret cabal of the Marvel Universe’s greatest minds, was brought together for a single purpose – to protect the world from the threat of multiversal armageddon. But to save our entire universe, Iron Man, Dr. Strange, Mr. Fantastic, Namor, The Black Panther, The Beast and Black Bolt would have to do the unthinkable.

To protect their secret, they tampered with the memories of Captain America – erasing his knowledge of their terrible acts. But no secret stays buried forever. And Steve Rogers is about to discover the betrayal of his closest allies.

“Everything that has been going on in AVENGERS and NEW AVENGERS virtually from the start has been building to this moment,” says Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “Now, all the cards are on the table—and the fallout from the Illuminati’s decision to erase Cap’s memories is going to require everybody to choose a side. From this point forward, events will accelerate faster and faster towards a shattering and unexpected climax! But first, the future awaits!”

With Captain America’s memories restored, the Illuminati’s days are numbered. The clash of the Avengers and New Avengers is upon us. What shocking secrets have Tony Stark and his secret inner circle been keeping? Find out as the truth stands revealed in AVENGERS #29!
