Jerome Opena has been in the comics industry since roughly 2005. However, it wasn’t until his recent work on UNCANNY X-FORCE with Rick Remender that the artist really started to turn heads. And it was that gorgeous work that landed Opena the biggest gig of his career to date – AVENGERS with writer Jonathan Hickman.

Hickman and Opena will be collaborating on the brand new title AVENGERS this November as part of Marvel NOW!, which Marvel released the first preview pages from issue #1 today. Before scrolling down any further, may I suggest you get a drool bucket ready? With Hickman’s high concepts and Opena beautiful pencils, AVENGERS should be a title at the top of everyone’s “must buy” list come November.

With the head piece and symbol, it looks like a mix of Stryfe and Omega Red.

Maybe the return of Diablo? Though last I saw of him, he got the stuffing beaten out of him by Spider-Man and Black Cat, and that was a few years ago

Interesting, let's see how this turns out

She really doesn't. If they needed a female, Ms.Marvel or someone more versatile should have gotten the spot. You don't put Black Widow on a 6 character roster that already has Hawkeye and Cap on it.

So is there going to be an explanation for the costume and roster updates?

#23 Posted by The_Diamond_Prince (66 posts) - - Show Bio

Woah. I had chills looking at that art. I really don't want to support the Avengers right now, they have enough, but Opena might persuade me otherwise.

@Crash_Recovery: i know that. im just stating my dislike of marvel's reboot and the demise of the ultimate universe . why shut it down to bring "new" life into the mainstream universe ? anyways my two more months comment is be when this mess comes out and i drop marvel. nice art w/e , its a dumb move but hey it wont apply to me in a couple months !

#26 Edited by WildStyle (331 posts) - - Show Bio

Marvel knew exactly what they were doing when they put Hickman and Opena together. The art looks fantastic. I'm expecting greatness from this book.

The man in the back has to be Bruce Banner. It would explain why The Hulk is there.

the Ultimate stories have been better than ever these days. Ultimatum aside, the stories are engrossing and beautifully drawn.

So what demise are you saying?

You do realize the roster will be 18 right? Captain Marvel is actually confirmed.....

It's more than 18 actually. Hickman said on his foamspring that 8 more characters not shown on the covers are on the team. Four of them are chicks.

Captain Marvel is on the team... and the roster is 14+ characters as shown on 001-003's issue covers.

That is very nice art. Don't read the Avengers books anymore, but this is tempting. It could with my 3 other Avengers books. The Liefeld one, The Busiek one, and the one that came out about 2 years ago.
