The Marvel Universe is getting some shake-ups thanks to Marvel Legacy, including a hidden team of Avengers in the year 1,000,000 BC.
Marvel has released new teasers of the long forgotten group, building to a full team reveal. The teasers give fans their first look at 1,000,000 BC versions of the Black Panther, Iron Fist, the Phoenix, Starbrand, and Agamotto, the All Seeing. That last one is the same Agamotto mind you that powers the ancient artifact Doctor Strange so routinely uses.
