Secrets Revealed in AVENGERS #29 - ORIGINAL SIN Tie-In

What dirty rotten things have the Avengers done?

This May, the collision of the Avengers and New Avengers is imminent as treacheries come to light in AVENGERS #29– an Original Sin tie-in!

The Illuminati, a secret cabal of the Marvel Universe’s greatest minds, was brought together for a single purpose – to protect the world from the threat of multiversal armageddon. But to save our entire universe, Iron Man, Dr. Strange, Mr. Fantastic, Namor, The Black Panther, The Beast and Black Bolt would have to do the unthinkable.

To protect their secret, they tampered with the memories of Captain America – erasing his knowledge of their terrible acts. But no secret stays buried forever. And Steve Rogers is about to discover the betrayal of his closest allies.

“Everything that has been going on in AVENGERS and NEW AVENGERS virtually from the start has been building to this moment,” says Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “Now, all the cards are on the table—and the fallout from the Illuminati’s decision to erase Cap’s memories is going to require everybody to choose a side. From this point forward, events will accelerate faster and faster towards a shattering and unexpected climax! But first, the future awaits!”

With Captain America’s memories restored, the Illuminati’s days are numbered. The clash of the Avengers and New Avengers is upon us. What shocking secrets have Tony Stark and his secret inner circle been keeping? Find out as the truth stands revealed in AVENGERS #29!

If you ask me the Illuminati did the right thing.

I wonder what's going to happen to the New Avengers series once The Illuminati becomes public. Will they still operate or will it get a complete revamp? I'm actually really excited for this.

This sound really fun. I love the New Avengers. In my opinion they have the ultimate team. I will be getting this for sure. BY the way............. Who is the blonde guy in the back of the New Avengers? Behind Namor? is that PYM?? or Sentry?

Yeah I don't see why he was in the Illuminati in the first place

@koays: SPOILERS

The New Avengers have formed in secret because all space and time are messed up these days and that has caused earths from other universe to start colliding together and destroying each other so the the 616 New Avengers have created a weapon of mass destruction that to destroy other earth before they hit the 616 earth, effectively committing genocide. Captain America was originally on the team but was completely against this so the other members voted and had Caps mind erased so he knows nothing about it.

Haven't i read something like this before? Didn't the Justice League erase Batman's memories many moons ago? Maybe i'm just crazy or maybe somebody erase my memories too.

In all seriousness this is looking like another Civil War/Schism/AvX story line with a little bit of Identity Crisis sprinkled in. I guess people love reading Hero vs Hero books.

The Illuminati always reminded me of the group in IC

Original Sin most definately has an Identity Crisis vibe to it.

That cover sucks. Frank Cho is almost completely incapable of drawing male characters well...

I have to ask: Does anyone else really hate Beast and how he has been written the last five years? Between his involvement with Illuminati, his irrational blaming of Cyclops for Nightcrawler's death, bringing the kids to the future and then trying to send them back against their will; he has really become one of the douchiest characters in Marvel. It would be one thing if he was written to be humbled by his mistakes, but he acts with a level of self righteousness that boarders on evil mad scientist territory. Its bad when I start to miss the Dark Beast from Age of Apocalypse.

@theblackhood: Didn't he kill a bunch of people when he was apart of the Secret Avengers, but got mad at Cyclops for having X-Force kill people that threatened mutants?

Yehp. It's only a matter of time before Cap modifies Ultron into a satellite to monitor super humans on earth.

@kivatt: no he didn't when Beast was a Secret Avenger they were all about "non-lethal" solutions. Remeber the fletcher guns that put people to sleep?

Beast is a huge douche, I hope Cyclops beats the crap out of him

Ok cool Identity Crisis comes to Marvel, I would like to see what happens when a subject like this hits MU. I.C was always praised for bringing a more dark, realistic story to the DCU, Throwing some mud on these larger then life characters

So in a place like Marvel who has always been the grittier and more realistic of the two worlds should be fun to read how trust and betrayal are handled with these characters

Posted by mjbiebs

I have been loving the New Avengers title, although I do really miss Professor X being in it but, in my opinion Beast and Professor X have many similar viewpoints so it works. I hope this does not mean the end of the New Avengers focus on the Illuminati. I'm getting so sick of these revamps. Even though it does make it easier for new readers to get on board I find it dissatisfying to have to have a new story and read another story about how a team/character came to be. Nonetheless this arc does sound very exciting!
