Marvel’s Next Big Thing: ‘Avengers Origins’ Flesh Out Five Heroes Starting in November [Comic-Con]
Though they most likely won’t star in an Avengers film in the immediate future, a handful of your favorite costumed crimefighters will star in weekly origin one-shots starting this November. Four of Marvel’s mightiest heroes will get the spotlight in Avengers Origins including Avengers Origins: Luke Cage by Mike Benson, Adam Glass and Dalibor Talajic, Avengers Origins: Quicksilver & The Scarlet Witch by Sean McKeever and an unannounced artist, Avengers Origins: Thor by Kathryn Immonen and an unannounced artist, Avengers Origins: Ant-Man and the Wasp by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Stephanie Hans, and Avengers Origins: Vision by Kyle Higgins, Alec Siegel and Stephane Perger.It’s fair to assume that these introductory stories will massage some dated details from the backstories of these characters, smoothing out the bits that haven’t aged well or that don’t fully gel with modern continuity.
It’s worth mentioning that it has been years since Vision and the Scarlet Witch have been proper Avengers. In Avengers Disassembled, the story that introduced Brian Michael Bendis’ role as chief architect of the Avengers line, the Vision was killed (and later reintroduced in Young Avengers) and the Scarlet Witch was revealed to be suffering with at least temporary madness. It’s too soon to tell, but re-introducing these characters, (who were once husband and wife), could hint at a more prominent presence in the core Avengers titles outside of just their Young Avengers appearances of late.
