Marvel goes all the way back to the dawn of time, 1,000,000 BC to introduce us to the first Avengers including Odin, Iron Fist, Star Brand, Ghost Rider, Phoenix, Agamotto, and Black Panther.
Jason Aaron will team up with artist Esad Ribic for an enormous 50-page one-shot that aims to take readers on a journey through time to the current Marvel Universe to show how it’s truly “all connected.”
Along with the blockbuster one shot, Marvel will be renumbering their long-running titles back to original series numbering.
“MARVEL LEGACY #1 isn’t simply a history lesson,” says SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “Rather, it’s the starting gun to a bevy of mysteries and secrets and revelations that will reverberate across the Marvel Universe in the weeks and months to come! No character, no franchise will be untouched by the game-changing events that play out across its pages. Jason and Esad pulled out all the stops to fat-pack this colossal issue with as much intrigue, action, surprise, mystery, shock and adventure as possible!”
“MARVEL LEGACY #1 will present all fans – new readers and current readers – the very best jumping on point in the history of comics,” says Marvel Editor in Chief Axel Alonso. “What Jason and Esad have crafted is more grand and more gargantuan than anything we have ever seen before and introduces concepts and characters the Marvel Universe has never encountered. Fans are going to witness an all-new look at the Marvel Universe starting at one of the earliest moments in time carried all the way into present day. Not only will this be the catalyst for Marvel evolving and moving forward, but expect it to be the spark that will ignite the industry as a whole.”
It all begins with Marvel Legacy #1 with a double gatefold cover by Joe Quesada in September.
