Marvel Comics has been hyping Avengers: X-Sanction as their status quo-shattering event for 2012. Now, Marvel Comics has released a sneak peak at the cover to Avengers: X-Sanction #1 by artist Ed McGuiness. Here is Marvel's description of the upcoming series, "The safety of the future is at stake and it's all up to Cable in order to save it – even if that means taking on the heaviest hitters in the Marvel Universe. With only 24 hours to destroy the Avengers, can he take on all of Earth's Mightiest alone?" Avengers: X-Sanction is written by Jeff Loeb with artwork by Ed McGuinness. Avengers: X-Sanction #1 is scheduled to arrive in comic book stores on December 14, 2011.
