Marvel has released more details on their third Free Comic Book Day title for 2022, Avengers/X-Men, which will feature three stories.

Finally, writer Danny Lore and artist Karen Darboe will introduce a new character, Bloodline, who Marvel says they have big plans for this year.
The comic is one of three titles coming from Marvel on Free Comic Book Day; the other two are Spider-Man/Venom and Marvel’s Voices. Like those two, this one will also have a variant cover, by Peach Momoko:
Free Comic Book Day is May 7 this year.
