It's Jonathan Hickman's New Avengers where the battle lines will be drawn between Thanos the Mad Titan and Black Bolt, king of the Inhumans. And from the look of this preview from Marvel Comics, Thanos will have reinforcements during this summer's Infinity crossover event.
This August, superstar writer Jonathan Hickman is joined by fan-favorite artist Mike Deodato to pit the Illuminati against their biggest threat yet in New Avengers #9! Tying into the blockbuster event of the summer, Infinity, New Avengers #9 shows fans what new threats lie beyond the edges of the Marvel Universe!
With the Avengers fending off an intergalactic threat on the edges of the Marvel Universe, Earth becomes the most vulnerable planet in the system! Enter Thanos, the galaxy’s most ruthless threat and an unparalleled force of brutality who brings order to the chaos of life through murder. Earth’s last hope may lie in the hands of a man who can level cities with a single whisper – Black Bolt, king of the Inhumans. But is the combined might of the clandestine group of Avengers enough to push back Thanos and his deadly group of lieutenants – the Cull Obsidian?
"As with Avengers, Jonathan’s issues of New Avengers are a critical part of the overall Infinity story. There are elements that were set into place in the earliest issues of the series that he and Deo will be paying off on here.” explained Executive Editor, Tom Brevoort, Marvel Entertainment.
