To prevent the collision of our universe with another, the Illuminati, led by the Black Panther, must assemble NOW! It’s the most powerful and brilliant team in the Marvel Universe--The Black Panther, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Black Bolt, Mister Fantastic, Namor the Sub-Mariner and The Beast--against an infinite legion of parallel realities.

Neato!!!

Badass art and team line-up. At first this sounded like a talking heads comic, but with this team in actual action, Galactus would run for the hills.

The first pic is sick!

SO. MUCH. WIN. I'm so excited for this and avengers.

Looks pretty awesome. Though I thought Captain America is a member now too. I thought I saw him in early solicits for this book, and Bendis made him a member back during his Avengers run.

I dont like black panther series beside cris priest that made an incredible run

TheAmazingSpiderMan47 - 11/30/2012, 10:43 AM

AlcoholicA - 11/30/2012, 10:49 AM
So Strange is Sor. Supreme again?
AlcoholicA - 11/30/2012, 10:50 AM
And did anyone ever really explain how BlackBolt came back from death?
kirynthemighty - 11/30/2012, 11:02 AM
@AlcoholicA :D read last new avengers!

So, is that the team lineup? The freakin illuminati, minus Namor and obviously Xavior?? Holy nuts! This could be an epic book.

eye candy, looks good
TankD - 11/30/2012, 11:10 AM
Damn son THAT COVER IS BEAST
GoILL - 11/30/2012, 11:23 AM
Shit looks dope, i'll see if I can add this to my list already spending to much on books as it is.
cmax - 11/30/2012, 11:29 AM
black and gold Iron Man is sexy as hell.
GoILL - 11/30/2012, 11:32 AM
@53

I might do the same man I usually go once a month but your every other month sound likes something i'll have to adopt myself because of all the Marvel Now stuff I plan to pick up.

@kirynthemighty

Ah I see. i have it, just haven't had a chance to sit down with it yet
jimoakley666 - 11/30/2012, 11:46 AM
That's some very nice artwork.
BIGBMH - 11/30/2012, 11:49 AM
Why don't they just call it Illuminati? This doesn't seem to have much in common with either the original or current New Avengers.
JordanKing - 11/30/2012, 11:50 AM
I get the Wakanda tribe are an advanced group, but Tron gear? Really?
Sora - 11/30/2012, 12:20 PM
The first cover is amazing
KrazyForKomix - 11/30/2012, 12:23 PM
It kind of reminds me of Warren Ellis' Planetary.
And that's a GOOD thing.
ATrueHero1987 - 11/30/2012, 12:29 PM
Shouldn't this book be called Illumnati instead of New Avengers?? Other than that, I'm ready to check this out.
Darkhaven - 11/30/2012, 1:06 PM
This title will be off the chain! The previous New Avenger runs were my favorite comics since their inception, and I was at first thrown off that this wouldn't involve that team, but I'm totally on board for this.
longbowhunter - 11/30/2012, 2:07 PM
I've got this on my pull. Hickman seems to think this will be the sleeper hit of Marvel NOW.
IronManny819 - 11/30/2012, 2:29 PM
Damn, Tony's in every book now, it seems. Obviously not a complaint, though. Lol.
marvel72 - 11/30/2012, 2:32 PM
fantastic cover,hickman is the f*ckin man.
AmazingFantasy - 11/30/2012, 4:27 PM
Hello new wallpaper.
elessarundomiel2382 - 12/1/2012, 4:12 AM
@kirynthemighty read it again dude.....the line up also includes Namor and Beast
elessarundomiel2382 - 12/1/2012, 4:26 AM
For those who are confused..........Captain America did not join the team. He is simply kept in the loop so that Civil War dont happen again. Everything the illuminati meets on he will know about thanks to Iron Man
