Over the week Marvel has slowly been revealing the new lineup of The Avengers. As their Secret Wars event winds down and the dust settles, seven heroes we'll don the title and take on Marvel Universe's biggest threats.
On free comic book day (May 2nd) you can check out the new crew, full of Marvel's most recent character creations. Until then, check them out below.
All-New, All-Different Avengers
Sam Wilson as Captain America
Sam Wilson has been in The Marvel Universe for decades now, as The Falcon, but after Steve Rogers was forced to retire due to extreme age, Sam took up the shield.
If there's any power the Cap needed, it was flight.
The New Thor (Currently Unidentified)
After his hammer, Mjolnir, decided he was no longer worthy, Thor Odinson dropped his first name and gave it to the mysterious woman who the hammer chose next.
We still don't know who she is, but we'll probably learn before this new Avengers series begins. My money's on Sif. Bleach must exist on Asgard, right?
The sentient android created by the villainous Ultron has been a staple member of The Avengers for a long time, and with his movie debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron in May, he should get a lot more famous.
In the All-New, All-Different Avengers, Vision has purged his memory cache in order to leave the past behind, but we doubt it'll be that simple.
Miles Morales as Spider-Man
Miles Morales has been the de-facto Spider-Man of the 'Ultimate' universe since 2011. When he watched Peter Parker die, the great power and responsibility transferred to his, 15-year-old shoulders.
It looks like after the Secret Wars ends, Miles will leave the Ultimate universe for the Marvel Classic pages. Does this mean he'll join the movies, too? Only time will tell.
Sam Alexander as Nova
The third and last teenager of the group, Sam Alexander inherited the Nova Corps helmet of his father, Jesse. After training with Gamora and Rocket Raccoon, Sam used his flight, strength and concussive blasts to protect Earth from cosmic threats.
In his battles, he's suffered some memory damage, but his heart is big enough to make up for his brain.
Kamala Khan as Ms. Marvel
Kamala Khan was just a normal Pakistani-American teenager, before a Terrigen bomb woke her latent powers. Now the superhero fangirl, with the ability to stretch, inflate and morph her body into any shape has taken the former moniker of her hero, Carol Danvers.
As Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan is Marvel's first Muslim-American hero, and is flying off comic book store shelves.
The old red and gold suit takes its usual place amongst the group, but is it genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, Tony Stark? Since this is the 'All-New' team, it seems doubtful.
I guess we'll just have to wait until free comic book day to see who's inside the suit. The odds are in James Rhodes' (War Machine) favor.
