SKU: 14027 Category:


The iconic cover to New Avengers # 1! Spider-Woman,. Luke Cage, Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Sentry and Wolverine! Following a reign of destruction by an insane Scarlet Witch, the Avengers disband. Six months later, with the Fantastic Four and the X-Men unable to act, the supervillain Electro shuts down power at the Raft, a “maximum-maximum security” prison for super-powered criminals, allowing for a mass breakout. Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman), an agent for the international law-enforcement agency S.H.I.E.L.D., is at the Raft with attorney Matt Murdock (Daredevil) and “hero for hire” Luke Cage. They are joined by Captain America, Spider-Man, and Iron Man, and assisted by a mentally unbalanced Sentry, who was also imprisoned at the Raft. The riot is quelled, although 42 inmates escape. Captain America declares fate has brought this group together, just as it had the original Avengers. All but Daredevil accept the offer to reform the Avengers as a result. I have a slightly different version of this poster. Look for Avengers Poster #11.
