Announced at New York Comic Con during the “Marvel: Iron Man & Avengers” panel, this new event kicks off in March with Standoff!: Assault On Pleasant Hill Alpha by Nick Spencer and Jesus Saiz. The story continues on in tie-in issues of Sam Wilson, Captain America, Uncanny Avengers, All-New, All-Different Avengers, New Avengers, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Marvel this week relaunched their comic line, yet still haven’t finished Secret Wars. How far ahead can Marvel be… here’s the official Standoff description:
From the outside it looks like any other remote small town. Only Pleasant Hill is anything but. This gated community holds a dark and sinister secret – one that keeps its residents locked away behind its walls. Now, the time has come for its townsfolk to finally escape. As their revolt begins – why then are the Avengers trying to keep them inside?! And what does it have to do with S.H.I.E.L.D.? Even Earth’s Mightiest Heroes won’t be prepared for the truth behind Pleasant Hill.
This Avengers centric event could also lead into the recently revealed Civil War II.
