The Marvel Universe is full of superhero teams, but when the United States of America is particularly threatened, there's one team dedicated to standing up for the nation: A.I.M.
Yes, that's the same A.I.M. that made MODOK, but the super-science collective has already been revamped into a force for good in the pages of New Avengers, thanks to the efforts of Roberto DaCosta, aka Sunspot. And now Avengers Idea Mechanics (the New Avengers) is becoming American Intelligence Mechanics (the U.S.Avengers) for reasons that will only become clear in the series itself. Check out a preview of U.S.Avengers #1.
Dedicated fan, influential creator, esteemed editor, respected historian; the legendary Roy Thomas, born November 22, 1940, has assembled one of the comics medium's most diverse and wide-ranging resumes over the course of his six-decade-plus career. From helping to establish the groundwork for organized comic fandom in the early '60s, to his much-loved stints writing many of Marvel and DC's best-beloved characters, to his modern-day work as editor and author of numerous reference works, he's long been one of the most knowledgeable and passionate voices in the industry.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
From the earliest days of comics, there have been characters who performed heroic deeds. Whether they use spells or sleight of hand, this week we're saluting five of the very best magic heroes.
Marvel's upcoming event Monsters Unleashed looks set to live up to its name as the publisher has announced it will be spinning out of the main miniseries and into specially branded one-shots that are all numbered #1.MU.

In Avengers #1.1, by Mark Waid and Barry Kitson, a new team of Avengers must figure out how to live up to their predecessors. But this is a flashback story, and the mostly green new team consists of Captain America, Hawkeye, the Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver.
Joss Whedon is open about his politics, never one to shy away from letting us all know whom he supports for this upcoming election. Just last week, he and a few of his Avenger pals posted a PSA to launch his new organization Save the Day, urging Americans to make sure they’re registered to vote. On Friday, Whedon also hosted a Facebook Live chat to promote Save the Day, in which he answered some fan questions, including which of the Avengers he’d pick to run the country.
This Sunday's episode of Marvel's Avengers: Ultron Revolution introduces the Black Panther to the show for the first time, and ComicsAlliance has an exclusive clip showing the Wakandan superhero and the rest of the team in battle with Panther nemesis Ulysses Klaue!
When Marvel's new U.S.Avengers, by Al Ewing, and Paco Medina, launches in January, the first issue is going to have 52 variant covers by Rod Reis, depicting an Avenger for each American State --- as well as Puerto Rico and Canada. It's unclear (if unlikely) whether the characters will have any connection to those states in the narrative, but since there will be 52 of them, most probably won't even be in the book.
The Avengers has seen street-level bounty hunters, world leaders, robots, spies, and even cosmic entities grace its roster through the years. So to celebrate the diversity of the Avengers, we’ve assembled a mighty cosplay gallery of its amazing alumni.

From the originals to the latest, from the regulars to the oddities, each hero here is a reminder ofn the Marvel Universe --- and cosplay --- at its best.
