Jason Aaron's Avengers Run Ends With Doctor Doom Trying to Erase Marvel’s History
Jason Aaron's Avengers run is concluding later this year with a massive three-part story arc assembling Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the Avengers of 1,000,000 B.C. and a number of Marvel variants.
Initially announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Aaron's run on Avengers will conclude later this year beginning with Avengers Assemble Alpha #1. The one-shot, which features art and cover art by Bryan Hitch, will bring together the Avengers from all throughout the multiverse as they race to stop new, deadly threats that have begun to rise.
The story continues in Avengers #63, which features art and cover art by Javier Garrón. The issue will see Earth's Mightiest Heroes struggle to fight alongside the Avengers of 1,000,000 B.C., all while Doctor Doom's Doom Supreme form leads a charge to forever change the Marvel Universe. The synopsis for the issue reads, "It’s the showdown fans have been waiting for—THE BATTLE OF 1,000,000 BC! The Avengers stand face-to-face with their prehistoric counterparts, the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC! But if the two groups cannot work together, they have no hope of defeating Doom Supreme and his marauding band of Multiversal Masters of Evil, who have come to erase all of Marvel history as we know it."
Concluding the saga is Avengers Forever #12, which features art and cover art by Aaron Kuder and brings together the many Avengers variants that have been seen throughout the course of the Avengers Forever series. The synopsis reads, "Witness THE SIEGE OF INFINITY TOWER! The all Steve Rogers Howling Commandos. The interstellar air force that is the Carol Corps. The Star Panther. The God of Fists. The Invincible Ant-Man, Tony Stark. Together, they are the greatest army of Avengers ever assembled. But will they be enough to protect the Avengers Tower at Infinity’s End? Because Mephisto has come to claim that tower’s secrets, and he’s brought an army of his own."
“Four years of Avengers stories," Aaron said. "Threads from really every major series I've worked on throughout my last decade and a half at Marvel, from Ghost Rider to Thor. It all leads to this. The biggest Avengers story I could possibly imagine. Featuring a cavalcade of characters from across creation. And I'm so deeply thrilled and honored that it all kicks off with an oversized Alpha issue that's being drawn by the legendary Bryan Hitch, who I'm getting to work with here for the very first time. Avengers Assemble. Say the words like a prayer. It's the only thing that can save you."
