NEW AVENGERS just ended this week but we won't have to wait too long for the title to return. NEW AVENGERS #1 will be released on January 2, 2013 as part of the Marvel NOW! relaunch. If somehow you haven't heard by now, the new series will be written by Jonathan Hickman and feature art by Steve Epting. If that wasn't enough to get you on board with the new title, the comic will focus on the Illuminati lead by Black Panther. So that means Black Panther and Namor on the same team after Namor destroyed Wakanda...talk about awkward.

Check out the first look seen over at Marvel.com.

NEW AVENGERS #1

WRITTEN BY Jonathan Hickman

ART BY Steve Epting

To prevent the collision of our universe with another, the Illuminati, led by the Black Panther, must assemble NOW! It’s the most powerful and brilliant team in the Marvel Universe--the Black Panther, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Black Bolt, Mister Fantastic, Namor the Sub-Mariner and the Beast--against an infinite legion of parallel realities.

32 PGS. /Rated T+ …$3.99

On Sale January 2, 2013

Sadly, as you can see, it has a $3.99 price tag. Looking at the art below, it looks worth it.

Thanks to Cavemold for the heads up.

I can always use more Marvel Illuminati! They include some of my all-time favorite Marvel characters. Plus, having the most powerful and intelligent folks on Earth all sitting around at the same table is awesome.

I have always been super interested in the concept of Marvel's Illuminati and hoped they would do more with them, and now they have their own book! Awesome!

Can't wait to see Namor and Panther interact, considering Panther wants to kill Namor and what not.

@McKlayn:

Well except Greg Land on Iron man he's the only mark of death at Marvel at the moment Just like Liefield at DC.

I'm looking forward to this, but has anything been said about how Mr. Fantastic is here on this team even though he is supposed to be gone with his family?

If this is the Illuminati, why is Beast on it???? He's smart and all, but I don't think his mindset fits with the group. He morals would run in conflict with group's actions IMO. I guess they have no other choice, since Xavier is dead. Though if I had my way, Doom would be the new guy on the team :)

I love the idea of the members in this team.. I mean Black Panther and Dr. Strange? That right there is gold.

I gotta get the trade. Marvel NOW has already piled titles into my pull list but this just looks like Hickman at his best.

Wow. I'm getting a strong Illuminati vibe from this roster. I like it.

Let's put it this way, would you prefer the current mutant leader, Wolverine, in yet another book? And Storm can't exactly be there with her divorce to Black Panther. So it's between him and Kitty Pride, take your pick.

god its great to see strange back in the cloak, hope this means his powers will go back to ss lvl. Thought his new uniform was starting to grow on me.

I wonder why Cap isn't there. He's in the Illuminati, and the writer said Cap is gonna be in it.... I hope that didn't change.

art is great.. i guess street level Avengers might end up in that Luke Cage's Heroes For Hire upcoming title now, since NA is even more elite than main team lol

@CircularLogic: Storm and Black Panther are going to be together in another book already. Namor is there, despite him destroying Wakanda. So I don't see why they can't get Emma Frost, who is a telepath and mutant and has been part of a secret group (The Cabal). Heck, I even think Magneto might fit in. He's a long time friend of Charles Xavier and certified team leader. I personally think Beast doesn't fit in with the secretive Illuminati group mentality. He's too nice and caring for that kind of stuff. Not to mention, he's kind of in everything now too.

This is one of the only Marvel Now titles I'm pulling. In an interview Hickman stated he thinks this is going to be the sleeper hit of next year. He must have some craziness planned.

Maybe you missed it, but Emma and Magneto are all escaped criminals on the run. I have no idea which book you're talking about that features Storm and Black Panther, but I think Hickman has plans for how Namor and Black Panther's current dynamic will be presented ( I think he discussed it in an early interview).

And I think you need to remember this isn't going to be the illuminati seen in Civil War. It will most likely be far less sinister than back then, plus since the majority of the members are all scientists in their own way (Mr. Fantastic, Tony Stark, and to an extent Black Panther, since Wakanda is pretty advanced) Beast makes a good fit.

Going to stick with Uncanny Avengers instead, because i prefer its cast and the X-men touch. But i'll admit, that art looks pretty freaking good.

It looks decent, but I've dropped New Avengers from my pull list now that Bendis's run is over. I'd much rather pick up Gillen's Young Avengers.

#45 Posted by thatlad (588 posts) - - Show Bio

I was unsure about this thinking I wasn't interested in illuminati. Then I thought about it, Hickman still writing Reed & T'Challa. Game On!

@CircularLogic: Namor is with the Illuminati despite his crimes against humanity. Also the Illuminati is separate from everyone else, they always operated outside of the Avengers or SHIELD. Would it be that difficult for Emma or Magneto to join and operate in secret? Abigail Brand has already helped them despite her association with SHIELD. Storm and Black Panther are going to be in A+X issue 3 together. Also we don't even know if there divorce is even complete, they seem to be more separated than legally divorced, since there are bigger issues at hand then their divorce papers lol.

Fair enough, but Namor is leader of a sovereign nation, which is the reason Doctor Doom is still at large, so he get's a pass. Magneto is far too hated by the Avengers on the whole to be allowed to join (same with Emma Frost, their freedom despite their crimes was only granted because Scott and Logan vouched for them, which certainly isn't the case now). And the divorce seems pretty final, since Black Panther is the leader of the wakandan church, so to speak, so his word is pretty much law in these matters (but I'm fighting for this more because I hated the pairing, never cared for a couple defined entirely by the fact that they are the biggest black names in Marvel)

Too many characters I don't care about... Namor ...meh... mr. Fantastic...meh... dr Strange...meh Black Panther ...meh... Black Bolt....meh Iron man ... Mwah... Beast is cool though... But he will be covered for me in New X-men and Wolverine and the X-men.... And wasn't Reed Richards going all 'Lost in space'??? Art looks good... Actually one of the better looking books... but I won't follow this.... although Hickman is a grand writer... Just don't care about this roster
