Remember all those Marvel teasers? Well, quite a few of them were revealed today at New York Comic Con.. The first on this list is the new on-going series IRON PATRIOT by writer Ales Kot (ZERO, CHANGE) and Garry Brown (THE MASSIVE). Here's a look at the cover from interior artist Garry Brown.
Colonel James Rhodes returns again to the Iron Patriot suit after Norman Osborn tarnished it. He'll be defending the United States from domestic bad guys and otherworldly elements. Issue #1 hits shelves in March of 2014.
Also, there's a new series coming called AVENGERS WORLD with a stacked creative team working on it. Nick Spencer (MORNING GLORIES) and Jonathan Hickman (AVENGERS) will be writing, and the art will be supplied by Stefano Caselli (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN). Here's the cover from issue #1 by John Cassaday.
This sister title to the main AVENGERS will focus on newer characters added to the roster and further the stories happening in the main title. This book will feature the traditional Avengers character but will also focus on characters like Hyperion, Smasher, and newer Avengers like Cannonball, Sunspot, and Shang-Chi. This series will begin in January, 2014.
Lastly, after Battle of the Atom is complete, there's a new X-Men-related story line coming your way, and this one ties into the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY series. "The Trial of Jean Grey" will weave back and forth between GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY and ALL NEW X-MEN. Brian Michael Bendis will be writing both books and Sara Pichelli will be doing the art on GUARDIANS and Stuart Immonen will be drawing ALL NEW X-MEN for this storyline.
It seems as though the original X-Men are still kicking around present-day, especially Jean Grey. This has alerted all of the Marvel Universe, since the terrifying Phoenix Force had manifested itself within Jean, numerous times. It seems as though the Guardians of the Galaxy will end up being involved because of this.
What do you guys think of all this news? What are you most looking forward to?
