Popular comics and entertainment news site The Wall Street Journal offered the exclusive confirmation this morning on the new post-Secret Wars Avengers roster and creative team, already outlined but not formally confirmed by one of the Marvel Free Comic Book Day offerings earlier this year. As expected, the book will be written by Mark Waid with art by Mahmud Asrar, with the addition of artist Adam Kubert on alternating arcs. The team members are exactly as outlined in the FCBD comic, with no surprises; Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Vision, Spider-Man, Ms Marvel and Nova.
Next month, Otto Octavius will once again don the red-and-black tights and highly reflective lenses of his Spider-Man costume in Superior Spider-Man #32 by Dan Slott, Christos Gage, Giuseppe Camunicoli and Adam Kubert.

On Friday's Cup O' Joe panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel unveiled a follow-up series that picks up where Origin left off, with "Logan" running wild with the wolves. Origin II, from writer Kieron Gillen and the other Kubert brother, Adam Kubert, sees the character go up against the X-Men villain Sinister. ComicsAlliance talked to Gillen to get the lowdown on Wolverine's second chapter.
