These are no longer The Avengers of old! Not just with an all new roster! No, some of these are actually brand new CHARACTERS introduced into Marvel NOW!
Tony Starks New Suit:
Starting in November we will be introduced to Superior Iron Man #1. Tony Stark heads to San Francisco with a new outfit and a different attitude towards life. Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso told EW. “The newly-transformed Superior Iron Man has very ambitious plans for the city that some of its residents embrace, but not all". If you noticed this time Tony Stark is holding the title "Superior" just like Spider-Man did when he "died" and DR. Octopus took over Perter's mind. I doubt that's what happens here but this is what was said about it.. “Like the Superior Spider-Man, Superior Iron Man is a character that’s hard to root for.” The series is written by Tom Taylor and drawn by In a series written by Tom Taylor and drawn by Yildiray Cinar.
Next up in, also in November will be Captain America #1 with long time Steve Rogers friend Falcon , taking over the helm of Americas soldier. There will be an issue that prevents Steve from donning his long time roll as Cap and once again someone has to take over. Just like Nomad, US Agent and Winter Soldier this time Falcon is going to carry the shield but this time he'll join the ranks of the Avengers Now!!
Finally we have the biggest move made by Marvel comics in decades!!! They are going to change the SEX of THOR! October’s Thor #1. Is a brand new series written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Russell Dauterman. The whole new Athor will come right from the "Original Sin" storyline. “For reasons that will be revealed in Original Sin, Thor won’t be able to pick up the hammer,” says Alonso. “Someone has to pick up the hammer. And someone does. And they become Thor.” That someone seems to be a lady. “There are several women in Thor’s life, and one of them is going to be the new Thor. You aren’t going to find out who it is for some time. This is a slowly unfolding mystery.”
It looks like Marvel means business with so many big time changes. It also mean they now what they are doing by bring forefront the charecters that are going to carry the next phase of Marvel movies yet to come like Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron, Ant-Man, Dr. Strange Scarlet Witch and many other who we have yet to see in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
