Avengers Assemble

Kelly Sue DeConnick and Stefano Caseli are teaming up to take over Avengers Assemble, the oft-forgotten third Avengers series from Brian Michael Bendis.

How do we know? Because Marvel sent us this today.

There can be no other interpretation. That must mean they're really happy with how DeConnick's Captain Marvel turned out, and they want to see how she'll handle Earth's Mightiest Heroes. The current series has involved Thanos and the Guardians of the Galaxy and its mission statement is generally to hew more towards the movie style as possible, even though it remains canon.

What do you think of this development? We here are certainly open for it. Some of us have missed getting excited about Avengers titles during the very long Bendis era. Plus, we can't help but be more than a little curious about how DeConnick will handle the Hulk.
