Before CIVIL WAR II hits the Marvel Universe in May there’s already a lot at stake in AVENGERS: STANDOFF.
Pleasant Hill looks like the perfect small-town community — but underneath the surface, a deadly secret lurks. One so explosive it will draw estranged allies Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson back together to save a friend in danger and put things right. But when the combined might of the Captain Americas isn’t enough, who do they call? In the face of unspeakable evil, it’s time for the Avengers to Assemble like never before!
Wait… Pleasant Hill? Where is this place? I wish to know more!
Well, hitting shelves on Friday 19th of February, we have just the one shot for your perusal…
AVENGERS: STANDOFF – WELCOME TO PLEASANT HILL
The prelude to the Spring’s blockbuster AVENGERS event!
Hello there and welcome, new resident. You’ve sure made the right choice in moving to Pleasant Hill– a friendly small town where burdens are lifted and the sun is always bright… so hide your eyes.
Don’t let it see you looking its way. Hide if you must. Otherwise it will burn right through you. Pleasant Hill is the kind of place where folks look out for one another. Everyone knows who their neighbors are. But who are you, neighbor?
This won’t affect every Marvel title, it’s very Captain America centred and affects the AVENGERS. If you want to collect the whole event here’s the checklist as we understand it…
