The security of the Marvel Universe is fractured. The world’s first line of defense, S.H.I.E.L.D., can no longer be trusted. The United States no longer has a super-spy agency with its best interests at heart – until now. Prepare for the U.S.Avengers!

Billionaire playboy, Roberto Da Costa, has formed an all-new A.I.M. - American Intelligence Mechanics! Endorsed by the government and positioned to replace S.H.I.E.L.D., A.I.M. is here to protect the United States from the most outlandish threats imaginable. Their mission: save the world and have fun doing it!

Speaking with The Washington Post, series writer Al Ewing offered some insight into Da Costa’s desire to form the U.S.Avengers, “He came to America in his teens, and, as both an actual and fictional minority, a South American mutant, he’s experienced the ugly side of it. But he’s seen the best of America, too. He has an absolute love for his adopted country, and he’ll fight to the end to save lives and help people.”

Also featuring the All-new Iron Patriot, tomorrow's Captain America today, Thunderbolt Ross – the Red Hulk, the high-flying Cannonball, the unbeatable Squirrel Girl (along with her patriotic squirrel legion), and more, the U.S.Avengers will dare any danger - no matter how unbelievably awesome that danger might be - to defend freedom, democracy, apple pie, bald eagles and the electric guitar!

U.S.Avengers will be a bold, brawny book that will distill everything that you love about and everything that you fear about this great land of ours into twenty pages of high-octane patriotic action every issue,” said series editor Tom Brevoort.

Action, adventure and intrigue wrapped in the red, white, and blue! The U.S.Avengers are touching down this December!

Hm, looks fun, colorful, and heroic. A book that actually feels like it's about super heroes. I dig it, a lot

Aside from Red Hulk, who is clearing missing the 90s, I think this looks pretty good.

The description has me concerned for the state of the MU after CWII tho.

I think I need some eye bleach, on the other hand this reminds me of how much I miss old G.I. Joe comics from the 80's. How out of character is Red Hulk in that image? surfer shorts and a pedo mustache...he leaves the pedo mustache for his alter ego, not for his hulking out (being enormous, red and full of rage is enough of freudian look, no need to go full perv).

Soo New Avengers turned into this ?

Well at least they finally realized SHIELD is becoming just as bad as any other villain agency out there and what is worse, they are hiding behind moral superiority and such excuses...

I am still shocked how Maria Hill is not jailed yet O.o

I like the idea of Sunspot and Cannonball being together. However, this looks like it might be a lampoon, so I'm not sure what to think til I read it.

Isn't weird that guy is charge of The U.S. Avengers is a sick Brazilian Mutant. I guess this means New Avengers are canceled.

After New Avengers I'm not even gonna read team-books by Ewing that look like they would be interesting. But hey got job spoiling the ending of that book.

So I just hope the interesting members of the new avengers rooster get a book written by a good writer that gets their characterization, knows how to write, how to develop and doesn't just write everyone as ineffectual as they are self-congrantulating. I mean obviously I'm not getting DaCosta the way he was in Avengers World, when he actually took over AIM, but aside from that.

Also a privatized secret agency with legal authority? Who came up with that?

Looks ok. I haven't really been a fan of Ewings Avenger books (MIghty Avengers, Captain America and the Mighty Avengers, New Avengers vol. 4).

I like that Red Hulk finally has the mustache. It was also stupid as heck when he transformed, that his mustache disappeared.

But how did Ross get his powers back? I LOVE Marvel but this has gotten ridiculous. They've brought back Echo, Doc Sampson, Baron von Strucker, & the von Strucker Twins without ANY explanations whatsoever. And now it appears Red Hulk will be getting his powers back (no explanation) while I bet Skaar, Rick, and Betty stay depowered.

Why do they keep white washing Sunspot? He's Afro-Brazilian. He's supposed to have dark brown skin.

Anyway, Red Hulk is sexy with a mustache.

You know what Hulk action in Ewings books consists of? People telling you how they beat the Hulk and people effortlessly beating pointless rando-Hulks for no reason.

Ross is probably gonna spout a bunch of over the top over patriotic gibberish for humorous purpose while shooting stuff up with his guns babble about the american way and then lose because his powers happen to be ineffective against this foe or dodge back against a bunch of streetlevelers and then go full on "mission accomplished" when the self-congratulation phase of the book is reached.

Distinctively american team run by an industrialist. Because MakeAmericaGreatAgain would be my guess.

Ewing is a good writer so the book may be good but I just don't feel like it would to my tastes.

Too much flag waving I guess.

@tantani: Except Danielle Cage and the Golden Skull, who I guess is probably the villain.

As long as its not written by Ewing or someone who gets them just as little... give them their own book. They have been awful for years now and need to get back to the awesome they initally were.

Danielle Cage is basiclly Luke Cage and Jessica Jones in 1 person, I belive she is atleast mid tier, isn't she?

and I talked only on the team members, not their villain

If so then he is suposed to be Marvel's Michael Jackson?

@stahlflamme: pessimist

This is the writer who had Thor get driven back by White Tiger and Powerman, had White Tigers fear powers chase off Shuma Gorath, had Wiccans powers get neutralized by some random mage, had Quake one-shot POD, after always telling us how she beat all the Avengers and smashed the Hulk, had a fight only consisting of powers not working properly and had Squirrel Girl get knocked out at two times I'm aware of. Also New Avengers of which this is obviously a continuation had not a single suspenseful moment.
