Marvel Comics To Relaunch The ‘Uncanny Avengers’

Marvel Comics has announced that they will relaunch the ‘Uncanny Avengers,’ a series that sees Captain America leading the Avengers Unity Division which works with members of the X-Men. The original series was ran between 2012 and 2017 in the aftermath of the ‘Avengers VS. X-Men’ story arc.

They said on their website, “The Avengers and the X-Men have saved the world countless times, but the two iconic teams haven’t always seen eye-to-eye. In an effort to change that, the Avengers Unity Division brought together heroes from both teams. Since then, these UNCANNY AVENGERS have attempted to bridge the gap between mutants and the rest of Marvel’s heroes.”

“Now, we’re taking a look back at the Uncanny Avengers and how some of Marvel’s most iconic Avengers and X-Men joined forces to save the Marvel Universe as the Avengers Unity Division. Before UNCANNY AVENGERS (2023) reassembles these heroes, we’ll also break down how Captain America and Rogue set the stage for the team’s return in FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2023: AVENGERS/X-MEN #1 in a story by Gerry Duggan, Javier Garrón, Morry Hollowell, and VC’s Travis Lanham,” Marvel explained.

Duggan previously worked on ‘Deadpool’ and ‘All-New Guardians of the Galaxy’ while Garron has illustrated titles like ‘Ant-Man: The Saga of Scott Lang’ and the ‘Avengers.’

“Since the Avengers Unity Division disbanded, the establishment of the mutant nation Krakoa has redefined the role of mutants in the Marvel Universe. With Krakoa centralizing mutantkind’s political and economic power, the anti-mutant forces of the world have come together to form Orchis, an organization dedicated to the extinction of mutants,” Marvel continued.

“Orchis launched its latest attack on mutants by stealing the X-Men’s Captain Krakoa powersuit. While an unknown Orchis ally intimidated government officials with the Captain Krakoa suit, several other Orchis agents attacked Captain America, who was only saved thanks to a quick intervention by Rogue,” Marvel continued. “Now, Captain America and Rogue will assemble Deadpool, Quicksilver, Psylocke, and Penance as a new Avengers Unity Division to face Orchis and the mysterious Captain Krakoa in a new UNCANNY AVENGERS series by Gerry Duggan and Javier Garrón.”
