Marvel Creating an America-Themed Avengers Team: Get The Details

Have you ever longed for an Avengers franchise that puts more of an emphasis on the good ol’ red, white and blue? This fall, Marvel will have you covered.

The new comic series, titled U.S.Avengers, will boast writer Al Ewing and artist Paco Medina, according to The Washington Post. Both Ewing and Medina will shift over from the New Avengers series, as will the main character of that franchise, the Brazilian mutant Roberto De Costa.

De Costa will assemble an American super-team consisting of the Red Hulk, Cannonball, Iron Patriot and a Captain America from the future. The latter is actually Danielle Cage, the daughter of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. Also on board: the ever-popular Squirrel Girl!

“We wanted a couple of members that’d speak to the U.S. in the title — hence super-scientist and supporting player Dr. Toni Ho stepping up to the main team as the new Iron Patriot, and General Ross waiting in the wings as the Red Hulk,” Ewing told The Washington Post. “And, of course, Danielle Cage, the Captain America of about thirty years in the future, who’ll be joining us for at least the first arc, as an enemy from her time comes to ours to stir up trouble.”

A villain from the future, the Golden Skull, will reportedly challenge the U.S.Avengers when the series debuts this fall. Can’t get enough Marvel? Check out some of the coolest shots from New York Comic Con:
