Marvel announces new Avengers prose novel


Though we read a lot of comic book at Major Spoilers, there are these other word books that are just as fascinating and just as interesting (sometimes more so) than what we find in the four color press. Marvel has announced a new prose books featuring the very popular Avengers.

Avengers_Everybody_Wants_To_Rule_The_World_CoverThe Avengers have fought their fair share of dangerous and deadly foes. Are they prepared to face them again – all at once?! In Berlin, Captain America battles against the forces of Hydra. In the Savage Land, Black Widow and Hawkeye attempt to foil the maniacal plot of A.I.M. In Washington, the Invincible Iron Man battles the robotic hordes of Ultron. In Mangapore, Bruce Banner and Nick Fury do battle against the High Evolutionary! The attacks can’t all be a coincidence—but who, or what, is behind them?

That description sounds like a great read, and we’ll find out more when Avengers: Everybody Wants to Rule the World when it arrives in April 2015.

But why a prose novel?  Marvel Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, David Gabriel thinks it is a way to expand the Marvel Universe experience, and thinks Dan Abnett is the one to do it.  “Who better to bring the Avengers to life for an original prose novel than Dan Abnett? This one is crammed cover to cover with the action Marvel fans love.”

Who’s up for reading this book?
