Avengers 1,000,000 BC Lineup Photos Released
With the Marvel universe finding itself in dire straits thanks to the events of Secret Empire where Captain America – Steve Rogers, once its stoic protector, has betrayed everything and everyone through the reality morphing powers of Kobik. With Secret Empire nearing its climax in its 10th and final issue, fans who hate or love this direction can look forward to another fresh churn in September with Marvel’s rebranding to Legacy; the company’s strategic reposition of its fleet of series after wide-spread criticisms of the company’s diversity stance and how its iconic heroes being sidelined.
The era of Marvel Legacy starts with the one-shot issue of Avengers 1,000,000 BC with the creative team of writer Jason Aaron and artist Esad Ribic. The story goes way back into Earth’s time and assembles a band of powered heroes that would be identified with their modern counterparts.

All leading up to the dramatic return you’ve been waiting for — and one you’ve been dreading! Jason Aaron (MIGHTY THOR) and Esad Ribic (SECRET WARS) usher in a new dawn — one whose rays will touch every corner of the Marvel Universe in the days to come! MARVEL LEGACY: It’s everything you’ve been longing for — and more!
