Rick Remender has just revealed which three characters will be joining the ranks of his Uncanny Avengers in issue #5 - Wonder man, Sunfire and Wasp will bring the current team number to 9. See them together in a promo pic after the jump..

The third Marvel NOW! 'Next Big Thing' press conference is still underway, but some more details have come in. Remender says that all three of the characters are there for a specific reason, and goes on to explain the roles each will play in the team..

“Sunfire is brought in for a reason that I don’t want to give away yet, because it deals with the aftermath of the first arc. He and Wolverine have business. He has a natural reason for being there, and I love Sunfire. I’ve never had a member on any team that I feel I can write as surly as Sunfire.”

On the Avengers side, we’ve got Wonder Man, who’s going to play an interesting role. He’s now something of a pacifist, and a major reason he’s on the team is for PR purposes; using his Hollywood skills to help bridge the worlds of mutants and humans.

They don’t have a government source of funding. They’re not going to be getting orders from any government organization, so their funding comes form Wasp.”

Who's doing the art for this series?
toco89 - 11/14/2012, 1:30 PM
Wonderman and Sunfire?

Cool characters. Let's just hope we all don't end up regretting it.
toco89 - 11/14/2012, 1:32 PM
Wonderman's got a 10-pack. Count it. A Ten Pack. LoL
JordanKing - 11/14/2012, 1:33 PM
Huh.. almost forgot about this one. Nice line up, but a visit from the fashion police wouldn't be the worst idea.
BruceLeroy - 11/14/2012, 1:33 PM
Great additions. Now if only we can get past the ridiculous delays. Coipel is supposed to be drawing issue 5 so hopefully he stays on during Cassaday's droughts.
toco89 - 11/14/2012, 1:36 PM
It looks like the team is blocking Thor and showing Wonderman. Probably because he's new. Well, returning.
Dunejedi - 11/14/2012, 1:42 PM
Well, as long as they keep subtly changing Caps costume every issue of every book he's in until they settle back on the original in a few months, I'll be happy.
OtakuPapi - 11/14/2012, 1:42 PM
Please give Sunfire his AOA look please...Wonderman needs a updated design too thank you
Weeton - 11/14/2012, 1:44 PM
I hate the art. No character, facial expressions, awful shading. Makes me not want to pick up the book at all.
deepee3 - 11/14/2012, 1:46 PM
Why is Cap wearing knee pads?
Mego - 11/14/2012, 1:48 PM
Marvels still doing the chain mail on Caps costume? Thats antiquated as hell. And it looks like shingles on a roof.

Marvel-let it go man! Let it go!
DoomXfactor - 11/14/2012, 2:02 PM
Wonderman and Wasp?...meh but the rest of the group looks badass!
AshleyWilliams - 11/14/2012, 2:05 PM
Wonder Man WOO HOO!
Mego - 11/14/2012, 2:06 PM
Theres some thing wrong with the body proportions. Their legs are too short. And really cant someone be more creative than that scene in the first place?

Ever since McNiven got hot several years ago Marvels been the house of dull.
Lets get some exaggeration back in there. Some life.
Thats the damn Avengers standing there like its a family photo.
Can you imagine the reaction that lame, dull drawing would've gotten if someone handed that in to Marvel when they were the House Of Ideas?
ironpool007 - 11/14/2012, 2:10 PM
Put Iron Man in there too. And I want Deadpool on the roster too, but I asked Rick Reminder about putting him on the team and he said no. Reminder still writes a hell of a comic, and I'm still pumped.
marvel72 - 11/14/2012, 2:12 PM
really enjoyed uncanny avengers 1 especially the shock ending,don't like sunfire costume should of gone with the age of apocalypse look.

good to see wonder man back on the team.
robvillain - 11/14/2012, 2:20 PM
thanks @blackandyellow
KaneVonDoom - 11/14/2012, 2:21 PM
I'm really liking this lineup but I am a bit tired of Wolverine...
marvel72 - 11/14/2012, 2:25 PM
nova(rich rider)needs to join the avengers or the guardians of the galaxy.
mctrinket - 11/14/2012, 2:29 PM
Wasn't Sunfire dead?
sciencefriction - 11/14/2012, 2:31 PM
God that art is horrible. When did Wonder Man decide being an Avenger was a good idea again? At least he looks better. Sunfire.. nice to see his classic costume back, save AoA for AoA...
Rhys - 11/14/2012, 3:04 PM

Yes, I love him. Glad to see he's making a reappearance.
CaptainAmerica1945 - 11/14/2012, 3:16 PM
I don't minds Cap's new costumer but those knee pads really need to be updated!! Looks like they were an after thought.
figuresmaniac - 11/14/2012, 3:43 PM
Whoa... powerful rosters...
Darkhaven - 11/14/2012, 3:51 PM
There is a ton of raw power on this team; it's pretty astounding overall. I'm dying to dig in to a bunch of these titles now.
AlcoholicA - 11/14/2012, 3:54 PM
Drop Wolverine

Sunfire is to the Avengers what Namor is to the X-Men

Thor+Wonderman+Havok = Holy-Shit Overload
ATrueHero1987 - 11/14/2012, 3:56 PM
Yea, I'm going to need Sunfire to get an updated look.
Rhinoman - 11/14/2012, 3:58 PM
This looks awesome, I got Uncanny Avengers #1 and it was enjoyable, the use of Quake was a good way to show the need for the Avengers. Anybody have any Marvel Codes btw that I could borrow if someone is not using them? Enjoying the digital platform
Docdowns - 11/14/2012, 4:13 PM
Isn't Wasp sort of...... DEAD?
Rhinoman - 11/14/2012, 4:14 PM
@docdowns They revealed in a recent comic that there was a portal or something that Thor put her into
niknik - 11/14/2012, 4:44 PM
HaHaHA! LMFAO at Cap's kneepads. Looks like he's gonna go do some flooring or carpet laying.
BIGBMH - 11/14/2012, 5:00 PM
Cap's new costume looks lame here because Joh Cassaday makes it look lame.

Sarah Pichelli's take on it look much more cool and modern.

Ancar - 11/14/2012, 5:07 PM
What the frack is wrong with Cassaday thesedays? Caps looks so poor!
LordHuck - 11/14/2012, 5:59 PM
Fix that #@$$%#ing ugly Sunfire costume.
MarcusStrong85 - 11/14/2012, 8:32 PM
Lightsplasher - 11/14/2012, 10:46 PM
Guys , leave the time to Cassaday to train to draw like he was doing before ...
For the team , I'm excited to see Wonder Man and the Wasp !! For Sunfire , they should change the costume !
elessarundomiel2382 - 11/14/2012, 11:13 PM
He just sucks thats all. I mean Sunfire, Wonder Man and Wasp could use an update as well. I understand that all artists have their own style and skill but isnt there a Marvel template as to how the costume need to look.
jimoakley666 - 11/15/2012, 12:51 AM
[frick]ing Sunfire is a complete and utter prick. And not in a cool way. He's just a [frick]ing knob.
ChromeToaster - 11/15/2012, 1:35 AM
@SteveRogersSon Thank-You! Completely agree!! He's Ssooo Overused. Having his own comic isn't enough! He Has to be on Every team too?
ChromeToaster - 11/15/2012, 1:39 AM
@Docdowns im glad im not the only one to realize this. .
