    “Uncanny Avengers” Relaunches Coming Out of “AXIS”

    So, you know that big “AXIS” event storyline happening right now at Marvel? The one written by Rick Remender that delivers 9 issues over 3 months, bringing a close to the story that began in “Uncanny Avengers” #1? Well, while the book is temporarily over while “AXIS” brings the Red Onslaught story to fruition in record time, it doesn’t appear that the Unity Squad is going anywhere.

    As announced via ComicBook.com, “Uncanny Avengers” will be relaunching with a new #1 in January, complete with a new roster and new costumes. Rick Remender and Daniel Acuna are both staying on the title, and the Unity Squad finds Rogue and Scarlet Witch welcoming Quicksilver, the Vision, Captain America, Sabretooth and — uhm, spoilers, I guess? — Brother Voodoo into the fold.

    While it is unclear what ramifications “AXIS” will have and what big important tragedy the solicit refers to causes this team to unite (I have my guess, certainly, but it involves a spoiler so I’ll refrain) we do know two things about this book for sure: that the “No More Mutants” teaser at NYCC was related to this book, and that there is something called “Counter-Earth” involved. Given that the first volume of “Uncanny Avengers” featured an alternate Earth already and the upcoming “Secret Wars” storyline that brings multiple variations of Earths together, your guess is as good as mine on this one.

    Here’s the solicit:

    Teaser Variant by Daniel Acuña

    • From the ashes of AXIS an all-new, all different Avengers assemble!

    • The tragedy at the end of AXIS has left the Uncanny Avengers vulnerable, and someone is taking advantage of it.

    • One of the Avengers oldest foes returns with a terrible secret that will, all hyperbole aside, shatter the lives of two members of the squad.

    • What is Counter-Earth? What terrible secrets does it house?

    32 PGS./Rated T …$3.99

    “Uncanny Avengers” #1 relaunches in January.

    Matthew Meylikhov

    Once upon a time, Matthew Meylikhov became the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Multiversity Comics, where he was known for his beard and fondness for cats. Then he became only one of those things. Now, if you listen really carefully at night, you may still hear from whispers on the wind a faint voice saying, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine is not as bad as everyone says it issss."

      It was inevitable Remender was going to write Brother Voodoo again, and it’s about damn time.

      • cyberjaeger

        maybe he’ll use this to get him a series so he can finally do that big ogoun the slayer story

    • Tyler Brown

      I am LOVING that roster. Plus Acuña on art with his character design? Mmm…

    • Centipede Damascus

      I’m excited for Doctor Voodoo, but I hope the Wasp doesn’t just disappear into limbo after Axis.

      • cyberjaeger

        maybe she’ll appear with havoc soon in astonishing avengers

    • Patrick Gizinski

      Curious, is this relaunching on top of Remender relaunching another Avengers book?

      I loved how he wrote Wasp and Havok and would love to see them after Axis.

      I thought maybe they would give Uncanny to someone else and hand the “main” Avengers books to him after Hickman is done, but apparently not. So…who is going to be on Avengers next?

      • Ricardo Torres

        It could still be Remender, they can end New when Hickman finishes with the main Avengers book to Remender and turn uncanny the secondary book

        • Richenbaum

          Hm. Yeah I suppose the Illuminati thing will have kind of run its course when Hickman is done.

    • newavenger

      More Fal-Cap! More!

    • Ricardo Torres

      Wait a minute that guy floating with the rod.. is that bother voodoo??????? when the fuck he was resurrected?????

      • James Johnston

        He was the shadowed figure on AXIS #9 that people (like us) got a hold of. Apparently Marvel gave up on letting him be a spoiler and put him right on the cover here.

        • Ricardo Torres

          Oh then let’s wait for axis
