Instead of announcing another Secret Wars title, Marvel today opted to tease a bit more about their FCBD All-New All-Different Avengers issue. The cover follows the usual Marvel tease, which shows seven figures lunging towards a almost-unseen opponent. Five of the figures are blacked out in a way familiar to Marvel teasers, but two figures – Ms. Marvel and the female Thor are shown. “Who will be Earth’s Mightiest Heroes when the dust settles from Secret Wars? Find out here!” The issue has already been advertised to feature a back-up feature of Uncanny Inhumans by Charles Soule and Brandon Peterson.
Let’s start with the obvious shadowed figures. In the top center of the image is Sam Wilson (still Cap) and underneath him is a spidey silhouette but with this being “All-Different”, it’s most likely Miles Morales (If so, good for you Marvel!). Over on the left of the image we see an image shaped like a flying Japanese Motorcycle rider is probably Pepper Pots in her Rescue armor, or a female incarnation of Iron Man we’ll meet during Secret Wars. On the bottom right, the gauntlets and helmet point to Sam Alexander bringing Nova into these Avengers. Above him is probably the hardest figure to place. On first glance it looks like Dr. Doom flying with his cape comedically dropped over his head, but a few theories like Hyperion and Dr. Strange have made the rounds on the internet. In sticking with the concept of things we haven’t seen yet, I’d venture to say this could be some new incarnation of the Vision that’s going to be similar to what we’ll see in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron movie.
All-New All-Different Avengers will be a FCBD offering in shops May 2, 2015.
Let’s hear your theories on who these new Avengers are? Does it seem wise to already show the new Marvel U before Secret Wars even begins? Will Marvel announce the end of this new universe before they even destroy the old one?
