Forget Iron Man, forget Hawkeye, forget Black Widow. Marvel Legacy #1 is about to sweep aside everything you thought you knew about the genesis of The Avengers.

Heading back in time to a million years BC, Marvel Legacy #1 brings a startling new beginning to the Marvel Universe story. Odin, Ghostrider, Phoenix, Agamotto and others team up to become the original Avengers – Marvel Icons opening the door on the incredible past and future story of the Marvel Universe.

Mighty Thor writer Jason Aaron and Secret Wars artist Esad Ribic have come together for the 50 page one-shot. The storyline will drive new origin stories and impact every aspect of the Marvel Universe, illustrating the true interconnectedness of all things Marvel.

Marvel Senior VP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort explains:

Marvel Legacy #1 isn’t simply a history lesson. Rather, it’s the starting gun to a bevy of mysteries and secrets and revelations that will reverberate across the Marvel Universe in the weeks and months to come! No character, no franchise will be untouched by the game-changing events that play out across its pages. Jason and Esad pulled out all the stops to fat-pack this colossal issue with as much intrigue, action, surprise, mystery, shock and adventure as possible!”

Marvel Editor in Chief Axel Alonso tells us “Marvel Legacy #1 will present all fans – new readers and current readers – the very best jumping on point in the history of comics. What Jason and Esad have crafted is more grand and more gargantuan than anything we have ever seen before and introduces concepts and characters the Marvel Universe has never encountered. Fans are going to witness an all-new look at the Marvel Universe starting at one of the earliest moments in time carried all the way into the present day.”

Marvel Legacy #1 will be out to light the blue touch-paper of the Marvel Universe in Fall 2017.
