5 Great, Accessible Avengers Runs for Beginners

With the release of the Age of Ultron, the Avengers have reclaimed their post in being one of the most popular superhero franchises. So what better time to get into the comics? There’s a whole 50 years of content worth exploring, with plenty of lore and battles to read about. However, it can be a little daunting to find a good run, or even an easy access point.

We’ve decided to make the job a little easier for you guys. Compiled here is a list of what we think are the most accessible, and also quality Avengers runs. We’ve tried to spread it out over the decades, so you can get a taste of how the team was in every era. Die-hard fans, bear in mind that some of your favourite runs may not be included, as they can be a bit too reliant on past lore. We’ll get to yours later.

BREAKING: Spider-Man to be shared by Marvel and Sony

sp2

Today it was announced that Spider-Man would be joining the likes of Thor, Iron Man and The Hulk, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After months of speculation and rumours on the topic, which at times heralded the worst news that Sony Pictures Entertainment had declined Marvel’s offers, we were finally given what so many had hoped for. Spidey’s own movie has been scheduled for July 28, 2017 which is when the next Thor movie was meant to arrive. This means that Thor: Ragnarok and every movie coming out after it have been pushed back by one scheduled slot each. This does not include the Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2 which have been kept in the same slots, with Inhumans now being released after them.

As stated in the official article on Marvel’s website, “Under the deal, the new Spider-Man will first appear in a Marvel film from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU).” This seems to imply that Andrew Garfield has been kicked from the titular role, so it will be interesting to see who they pick to replace him, or if they even use Peter Parker for these movies. There hasn’t been any news on which film the character will debut in though, so we may not get to see him until 2017, but if it means they can do a truly great representation of the character then I think it’s worth it.

Marvel’s “Last Days” Are Upon Us, To Run Alongside “Secret Wars”

ComicBookResources reported yesterday that the Mainstream and Ultimate universes of Marvel would combine to become one, in a psuedo reboot of the line. Today, Marvel have announced a new series to run alongside “Secret Wars” – “Last Days”. According to the publisher, this series is one of three to accompany the line-wide crossover. The series will focus on the heroes of the MCU as they ask themselves – it’s their last day alive, what will they do with it?

When asked about the possibility of a reboot, Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso stated – “Read and find out. Like I said, we are taking some chances here, but I will stand by — I think Tom [Brevoort] will back me — our history’s not broken… If anything we think we are building upon that history and we are taking the best and biggest pieces of it and seeing how easily they coexist with one another. We don’t expect all our moves to make everyone happy, but we think it will make for a really fascinating read.” – via CBR
