The Uncanny Avengers take on Planet X

Two Avengers vs an entire planet of mutants led by Magneto? Could get a little rough.

This March, experience the Marvel Universe like you’ve never seen it before when Avenge the Earthkicks off in UNCANNY AVENGERS 18.NOW! From the New York Times Bestselling creators Rick Remender and Daniel Acuña comes the next arc in the series fans are calling “amazing”, “intense” and “epic”!

Welcome to Planet X – the new mutant homeworld. Torn from their home, Homo Superior has begun anew away from a world that hates and fears them. Life is great – assuming you possess the mutant gene!

Janet Van Dyne, the Wasp, stands alone as the last remaining human being alive. Now, she fights for her life against Magneto and his All-New X-Force! Magneto’s dream of mutant superiority almost in his grasp – he’ll stop at nothing to exterminate the last of humanity once and for all! But they’ll have to get through the Wasp’s husband Havok first! And the leader of the Uncanny Avengers won’t go down that easily!

“It’s been a long time coming—more than a year in the making!—but we’re finally at the big epic climax of Rick’s mega-arc,” says Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “As readers have reacted to the startling events of the past few issues, wondering just how all of this can possibly be happening, we’ve known all along that the real shockers were yet to come! And Daniel Acuña’s depictions of Planet X are so fully-realized and so amazing that you’ll want to buy a condo there yourself (if you happen to be a mutant!)”

“It’s not too late for readers to get on board for the most amazing finale they’ll read all year! And they’ll need to, if only to feel well-informed and ready when—but I’ve said too much!”

What has happened to the rest of the Uncanny Avengers? Who survived the Apocalypse Twins cataclysmic plot, and how? Find out when Avenge the Earth kicks off in UNCANNY AVENGERS 18.NOW this March!

I haven’t been following Uncanny Avengers, but stories like this make me want to. Sure it’s probably little more than a What If?! scenario, but Remender knows what he’s doing with these characters and this particular arc has been in the works for a very long time.

I also don’t think there are too many writers who have the patience to tell a story this long in duration, but if anyone can (and can keep it smart and engaging all the way through) it’s Rick Remender. Daniel Acuna’s artwork is also a highpoint in Uncanny. His pencils are loaded with action and movement; it’s a big, bold style that I really enjoyed in seeing the preview work below.

And even though this is technically the ‘end’ of the road for this long bubbling tale, it is the beginning of the end, so if you have yet to check the book out now might actually be a good time to hop on board. Uncanny Avengers #18.NOW brings Planet X into comic shops on March 26th.
