'Avengers Mech Strike' #1 Has the Avengers in a Massive New Fight
To fight one of their biggest foes, they'll need their biggest defense!
Earth's Mightiest Heroes are gearing up for one of their biggest battles yet -- and it calls for something super heroic and super-sized! In AVENGERS MECH STRIKE #1, written by Jed MacKay with art by Carlos Magno, the Avengers find themselves up against a massive monster from another world. The first in the miniseries hits comic shops on Wednesday, February 3, but you can have a look at the book right here!
Earlier today, MacKay talked to Syfy Wire about the story and his plans for the ensuing five-part adventure:
"AVENGERS MECH STRIKE gets into it from the jump: on page 2 of [issue] #1, the Avengers are head to head with a giant monster that defies any classification that they are familiar with from their past adventures. And even worse, the Biomechanoid seems to be able to counter anything they bring to the table in order to deal with it.
"And even worse... it may not be the only one. The Avengers are in a spot. This is a new threat, and they have to come up with a new way of dealing with it -- they're the Avengers, after all. That's what they do. And all the while, someone is pulling strings, and the Avengers are in a battle against time to figure out who, and what they can do about it."
"MECH STRIKE has been an interesting and exciting series to work with — taking a potentially silly concept like 'the Avengers have power armor now' and playing it deadly straight-faced has been a lot of fun, and we can't wait for people to check it out!"
The Avengers are confronted with an unstoppable new menace, one that is seemingly impervious to their every strength! But the Avengers aren’t so easily beaten, and when new threats arise, powerful new tools must be brought to bear! Join the Avengers as they battle a brand-new enemy... and begin a deadly game of chess with a shadowy mastermind!
