Mighty Avengers is a monthly comic book currently published by Marvel Comics, starring the superhero team The Avengers. Written by Brian Michael Bendis, the writer also behind the New Avengers series, and illustrated by Frank Cho, the series depicts a group of superheroes that form a new team of Avengers. The series is set after the events of the Civil War storyline. Mighty Avengers #1 was released on March 7, 2007.
The team members are:
Ares - Olympian God of War turned anti-hero.
Black Widow - Natasha Romanoff, a former Russian spy and longtime ally of the Avengers.
Iron Man - Tony Stark, the original armored Avenger and founding member of the Avengers, also currently serving as the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Ms. Marvel - Carol Danvers, former super-agent now trying to do her best to become a great super-hero. Iron Man has appointed her team leader.
The Sentry - Robert Reynolds, superhero with a troubled past, and the "powerhouse" of the Mighty Avengers
Wasp - Janet Van Dyne, wealthy fashion icon and a founding member of the Avengers, able to shrink herself, growing "wasp" wings on her back in the process and fire power blasts of electricity from her hands.
Wonder Man - Simon Williams, former industrialist turned super heroic actor and stuntman.
The Mighty Avengers are first seen as a team at the end of Civil War #7, where they are shown as the New York branch of the Fifty States Initiative. However, Tony Stark says that while the Initiative covers each state, he intends the Mighty Avengers to serve the entire world. Further clarification will be needed to determine if the Mighty Avengers are part of the Initiative. Mighty Avengers will have big world threatening situations to deal with at all times. New heroes interacting with each other in a situation some of them have never been in before is the goal of the creative team behind this series.
