This morning, The Wall Street Journal reported artists Adam Kubert and Mahmud Asrar along with writer Mark Waid and artist, the creative team behind the Free Comic Book Day introduction to the All-New, All-Different Avengers,will continue working on the new Avengers title with more than 12 issues coming this year. The title’s lineup features Iron Man, Ms. Marvel, Spider-Man (Miles Morales), Captain America (Sam Wilson), Thor (Jane Foster), Nova and Vision. Check it out – the team is a pretty diverse crew. Waid told the Journal:
“I like the fact that we ended up with an Avengers team with one white guy on it….We get to do something that hasn’t been done since the beginning of the series back in 1963, which is we get to tell an origin story for the Avengers as the team rebuilds from the ground up.”
Editor Tom Brevoort, who had the idea to add Morales to the team, believes the diversity bring in new readers:
“We got lucky by happenstance in that Thor was the way Thor was and Cap was the way Cap was. The fact that we were so balanced that there’s only one white guy is more than we would have expected when we started out. It’s pretty cool.”
