Three Avengers walk into a bar…
Marvel’s Fresh Start initiative kicks off this week with The Avengers #1 — perfectly timed to what’s going to be the biggest movie blockbuster in history until Avengers 4 comes out next year.
But rather than start off with, say, a gigantic battle or some nefarious evil-doer plotting to take over the world, The Avengers #1 — by Jason Aaron, Ed McGuinness, Mark Morales and David Curiel — begins with a quiet conversation in a bar between Steve Rogers, Tony Stark and Thor.
The topic of conversation? Whether they’re the ones to lead the Avengers anymore — and whether they’ve even outlived their usefulness.
Movie-goers would tell you that of course these three are indispensable. But it’s been a very rocky road on the comics side of things for awhile now and Marvel’s facing it head on here.
