Marvel Brings Back Their First Super Team 'The Invaders'

In honor of Marvel's 80th anniversary, Chip Zdarsky will reunite Cap, Bucky, the Human Torch... and Namor!

Lots of great Marvel news has been coming out of New York Comic Con 2018, including several announcements about upcoming books. As part of Marvel's 80th anniversary, one familiar name was dropped on Thursday with the news that MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS would be returning in January 2019: the Invaders! 

Writer Chip Zdarsky will team up with penciler Carlos Magno to bring the new story of the Invaders to life in INVADERS #1 in January 2019! Artist Butch Guice will create the cover; Mico Suayan and Alex Ross will provide variant covers. 

Marvel's first super team made its first appearance in AVENGERS #71 back in 1969. The WWII-era team consisted of Captain America, Bucky Barnes, the original Human Torch (plus his sidekick Toro), and Namor. The powerful foursome will reunite this winter -- with Bucky as the Winter Soldier and Namor as their enemy. INVADERS #1 will see Cap, Bucky, and Jim Hammond facing Namor down as the Sub-Mariner tries to unleash a new deadly threat.

INVADERS #1, written by Chip Zdarsky with art by Carlos Magno, will go on sale in January 2019! 

Prepare for the return of MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS, coming in January! And stay tuned to for more exclusive New York Comic Con reveals.
