Marvel Comics celebrates the sixtieth anniversary of Earth’s mightiest heroes in Avengers: War Across Time, a five-issue restricted sequence set within the legendary period created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Don Heck. Assembling the traditional staff of Avengers — Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Giant-Man, and the Wasp — are Eisner Hall of Famer Paul Levitz (DC’s The Legion of Super-Heroes) in his first story for Marvel Comics and artist Alan Davis (DC’s JLA: The Nail, Marvel’s Avengers Vol. 3). Described as a love letter to Avengers historical past, War Across Time arrives simply in time for the staff’s milestone anniversary in January 2023.
“I realized a lot of my writing craft from The Avengers, and it has been a delight to pay homage to my outdated associates Stan, Jack and Don by attempting to do one thing which may have been an prolonged subject #11.1,” Levitz advised Marvel.com. “We’ve been cooking this up for a very long time, and I hope readers have as a lot enjoyable with it as I did.”
Set within the wake of 1964’s Avengers #11, which pit the Avengers towards a Spider-Man android created by the time-lord Kang the Conqueror, War Across Time takes place within the bygone period of the earliest days of Earth’s mightiest heroes. The restricted sequence journeys again in time to inform an untold story that begins with a battle towards their former teammate: the rampaging Hulk.
Marvel describes Levitz and Davis’ sequence as follows: “War Across Time will see the unique Avengers at their best as they battle an onslaught of highly effective and unusual new threats that strike on the very coronary heart of the staff. At the middle of all of it shall be Kang the Conqueror, reaching again from the furthest reaches of time to destroy the Avengers legacy!
“Thor! Iron Man! Captain America! Giant-Man and the Wasp! It’s the traditional Avengers towards the Hulk on the streets of New York, and the start of a showdown with Kang the Conqueror that can span the centuries!”
Avengers: War Across Time goes on sale January 11. See the primary preview pages within the gallery under.
