Many associate names like Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man with the origins of the Avengers, but that will all change after Marvel Legacy #1.
The anticipated event will restructure the early days of the Marvel Universe, including a brand new Avengers team from the year 1,000,000 BC that includes names like Odin, Iron Fist, Star Brand, Phoenix, Black Panther, Agamotto, and Ghost Rider.
The book will be helmed by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic and as SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort explains, is not just a glimpse into the universe's past.
"MARVEL LEGACY #1 isn't simply a history lesson. Rather, it's the starting gun to a bevy of mysteries and secrets and revelations that will reverberate across the Marvel Universe in the weeks and months to come! No character, no franchise will be untouched by the game-changing events that play out across its pages. Jason and Esad pulled out all the stops to fat-pack this colossal issue with as much intrigue, action, surprise, mystery, shock and adventure as possible!"
The 50-page issue will also be a jumping on point for fans, and Marvel Editor in Chief Axel Alonso promises big things coming out of the upcoming story.
"MARVEL LEGACY #1 will present all fans – new readers and current readers – the very best jumping on point in the history of comics. What Jason and Esad have crafted is more grand and more gargantuan than anything we have ever seen before and introduces concepts and characters the Marvel Universe has never encountered. Fans are going to witness an all-new look at the Marvel Universe starting at one of the earliest moments in time carried all the way into present day. Not only will this be the catalyst for Marvel evolving and moving forward, but expect it to be the spark that will ignite the industry as a whole."
