THE ‘FALL OF X’ BRINGS THE UNCANNY AVENGERS BACK FOR A NEW SERIES

This August, the Avengers’ Unity Squad will return! Gerry Duggan and Javier Garrón’s UNCANNY AVENGERS series will bring together a new team in the wake of attacks on the U.S. and Krakoan governments.

“Everything we’ve been working towards in our third act is coming to a head this summer,” Duggan told fans in a video message during X-Men: 60 Uncanny Years Live Virtual Event. “The Uncanny Avengers have existed to provide an example of unity between humanity and mutantdom, and they will need to work extra hard at that now as relationships and friendships have frayed in the events of FALL OF X.”

Readers will take their first steps into the FALL OF X era in this year’s FREE COMIC BOOK DAY: AVENGERS/X-MEN #1, which will include special lead-in stories for UNCANNY AVENGERS featuring Captain America, Rogue, Deadpool, Quicksilver, Psylocke, Penance, and more.
