When December rolls around, The Phoenix Force will rise and look for a new host in Jason Aaron’s Avengers series.
“The most iconic, primordial powers of the Marvel Universe have been central to my AVENGERS run. And few forces in the cosmos are more world-shaking and potentially world-destroying than the Phoenix Force. It’s legacy on Earth goes back to the Stone Age, as we’ve seen, but we haven’t seen much of the firebird in the present day. That’s about to change in a very big way,” Jason Aaron promises in a press release from Marvel Comics. “The Phoenix is back and in its spirit of fiery rebirth, it’s seeking a brand new avatar. So begins the greatest tournament the world has ever seen, as some of Marvel’s most powerful heroes and villains are called to battle for the right to become the all-new Phoenix. All will be transformed. But who will burn?”
Joining Aaron will be artist Javier Garron who will give each potential host a distinctive new costume. While we wait for the previews to arrive, check out Leinil Yu’s cover for Avengers #40, and then share your thoughts in the comment section below.
