Here at Marvel, we tell stories that aim to entertain, inspire and amaze. When I think about what's next for us and our fans, four things come to mind: new creative teams, new series, new directions and new beginnings.

We have a lot of incredible comics coming out in 2018, and AVENGERS #1 will be an important milestone for every Marvel fan. There are so many spectacular stories with amazing art leading up to May, and we hope you'll enjoy these previews of our fresh start.

And as always – and I'm thrilled to say this as Editor in Chief – Make Mine Marvel!

- C.B. Cebulski, Editor in Chief

Over the next couple of weeks, we'll be rolling out new beginnings for a few of our key franchises–new creative teams, new starting points, new storylines–all the big stuff that we've been building towards since LEGACY began. This isn't a clearing of the slate—while these new starts will kick off with new #1s, we'll be maintaining the classic LEGACY issue counts as dual numbering on these titles as well. Oh, and don't read anything into not seeing a character on the Jim Cheung piece... we can only squeeze so many characters onto there without killing poor Jim!
