COMICS: Marvel NOW! Goes BATTLE ROYALE With New AVENGERS ARENA Series
Writer Dennis Hopeless and artist Kev Walker bring 16 young Marvel heroes together to "fight or die" in this upcoming series, as the psychotic Arcade will take members of Avengers Academy, The Runaways and more to Murder Island. There WILL be blood..
It seems we were all way off with that "Survive" teaser from last week. The first issue of Avengers Arena hits this December, and Marvel spoke to Dennis Hopeless and series editor William Rosemann about what - and who - we can expect to see. Rosemann throws a few names our way, while Hopeless assures us that we will most definitely lose of few of these unfortunate youngsters as the series progresses..
William Rosemann: "Fans of AVENGERS ACADEMY will hopefully be excited by the next chapter in the lives of Hazmat, Mettle, Reptil, Juston and his Sentinel and X-23. Speaking of schools, who are the Braddock Academy? After his last appearances in War of Kings and NOVA, Darkhawk soars again! Staying with sci-fi, just wait until you see what Dennis and Kev have planned for Annihilation’s Cammi, baddest girl in all the galaxy. And last but certainly not least, direct from the pages of the dearly missed RUNAWAYS, we have Chase and Nico!"
Dennis Hopeless: "We really got to cherry pick our cast. That was a lot of fun, almost as much fun as creating the brand new characters. I have a feeling the Braddock Academy kids in particular are going to break some hearts. Not sure if we made it clear yet, but people die in this book."
