Derek Landy and Greg Land land a new miniseries to continue their Avengers story.
All-Out Avengers, we hardly knew ye. The series, which was initially billed as an ongoing, will end with issue #5 to make way for Avengers Beyond. Both Derek Landy and Greg Land will continue as the creative team for the new miniseries.
The team will figure out the real culprit behind their recent missions — The Beyonder, the powerful being who orchestrated the first Secret Wars back in the 1980s and who recently appeared in Defenders: Beyond. While his origin has been retconned a couple of times since then, one thing that has remained consistent is his Jheri-curl hairdo.
“I am beyond excited to take everything we’ve done in All-Out Avengers and continue it into its next incarnation,” Landy said. “We’re just beginning to brush up against the wider implications of the Beyonder’s agenda and the chance to tell this kind of story—the story of gods, the one thing that scares them, and the Avengers caught in the middle—is an impossible dream come true for a kid who grew up with Secret Wars.”

The new series will ‘launch readers directly into the thrilling missions of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.’
As teased last week, Marvel officially announced All-Out Avengers this past weekend during Fan Expo Philadelphia. The new series will feature stories that jump directly into the action –“From page one, panel one, the Avengers will be knee-deep in the action with no setup, no explanations and no time for questions,” according to Marvel.
Derek Landy, who worked on the recent Captain America and Iron Man series, will team with artist Greg Land for the new title, which will feature Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Spider-Woman and more.
“When Tom Brevoort approached me with this concept, I thought it was an inspired idea, a slice of creative genius, and also totally unworkable…! But the chance to launch a new Avengers title, and the chance to write any character who’d ever BEEN an Avenger, was impossible for this particular Marvel fanboy to resist,” Landy told Marvel.com. “Add in the fact that Tom wanted to get Greg Land on art and my fate was pretty much sealed.”

The one-shot promises to reveal more about ‘Thor’s mysterious connection to the Phoenix Force.’
Jason Aaron will continue the story of the prehistoric Avengers in a one-shot this summer titled Avengers: 1,000,000 B.C. He’ll be joined by artist Kev Walker on the story, which promises to reveal more about Thor’s relationship with the Phoenix Force.
“The Prehistoric Avengers have been an important key to my Avengers run since the very beginning,” Aaron told Marvel.com. “They are the earliest versions of some of the earth’s most powerful legacy characters. They’re the heroes who protect the Marvel Universe in its crib. Now, we finally get to see them all in the spotlight in a huge way, in a story that shows how these prehistoric heroes shaped Marvel history in the most profound ways and that will also have big ramifications for the Avengers going forward.”
