So far the Dark Avengers are 0-2. Under Norman Osborn's leadership, they came close to being seen as a legitimate superhero team based on the fact that the members resembled actual heroes. Osborn has just been too focused on revenge and world domination that his plans seem to always fall apart. Now there are a bunch of heroes resembling members of the Avengers locked up in custody so what can be done with them?
Turn them into actual heroes, of course. Following the thinking behind the Thunderbolts, it appears the villains will actually continue to serve as Dark Avengers only this time under more stable leadership. Marvel has released a first look for the series that will be pushing THUNDERBOLTS out of the spotlight for now.
This June, prepare for an all-new brand of justice as the fan favorite creative team of Jeff Parker and Declan Shalvey bring fans a new line-up of Earth’s Deadliest in Dark Avengers #175! Featuring the Dark Scarlet Witch, Dark Spider-Man, Trickshot, Ragnarok, Skaar and Luke Cage – this new team will take on a mission that only they can tackle!
