Marvel Reveals the Foundation of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: 1,000,000 B.C
Marvel Comics has revealed a new one-shot that will bring to light the foundation of Earth’s mightiest heroes in Avengers: 1,000,000 B.C. Teased yesterday, the giant-sized issue will guide readers to the earliest days of the Marvel universe and the beginning of Jason Aaron‘s Avengers run where we first met the Avengers of 1,000,000 B.C. Aaron will be joining together with artist Kev Walker to reveal some of Marvel‘s biggest questions that includes the incarnation of the Avengers, Thor’s connection to the Phoenix Force and the publisher also promises to “reveal how this fascination addition to the Avengers those will play into a major upcoming Avengers saga later this year.”
Having defended the Marvel universe since the beginning of time, the legacy heroes have never had their secrets unearthed, but that all changes this July when we witness the events that will see their ranks shattered, as well as feature how these heroes lives shaped the entire future of the Marvel universe. All this, plus the event that sees them come together again with the true story of Thor’s birth.
“The Prehistoric Avengers have been an important key to my AVENGERS run since the very beginning,” Aaron explained in the press release. “They are the earliest versions of some of the earth’s most powerful legacy characters. They’re the heroes who protect the Marvel Universe in its crib. And now we finally get to see them all in the spotlight in a huge way. In a story that shows how these prehistoric heroes shaped Marvel history in the most profound ways and that will also have big ramifications for the Avengers going forward.”
“When I first got the script for this, I was expecting a 30 page prehistoric smack down,” Walker added. “But Jason’s script was so much more than that and I’ve really had to work hard to do some of these scenes justice.“
Avengers: 1,000,000 B.C. will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally on July 13th, 2022. Check out the main cover by Ed McGuinness and variant cover by Alex Horley below:
