AVENGERS: STANDOFF! Unites Earth’s Mightiest Heroes For Epic Crossover!

                             Kicking Off This March in Standoff!: Assault on Pleasant Hill Alpha        

                                                                                                                                                                           

New York, NY—October 12th, 2015 —The blockbuster Avengers crossover of 2016 starts here! It’ll take all of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to uncover the mysteries behind Pleasant Hill – and it’s all happening in AVENGERS: STANDOFF! this Spring! Celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Captain America with a bang as heroes from across the Marvel Universe strap in for an explosive thrill ride!

 

From the outside it looks like any other remote small town. Only Pleasant Hill is anything but. This gated community has more than its fair share of secrets. Secrets that keep its residents locked away behind its walls. But the time has come for them to finally escape. As their revolt begins – why then are the Avengers trying to keep them inside? And what does it have to do with S.H.I.E.L.D.? What’s hidden at Pleasant Hill might be too much for even the Avengers to handle.

 

“It was really about trying to craft an event that was very ground-level, very character-driven, where everybody’s in close quarters in a locked-in space,” says Nick Spencer, in an interview with Marvel.com. “It was a perfect setting for us in the scale we wanted to give and the direction and the feel of the event.”

                                                                                                                                   

Kicking off this March in STANDOFF!: ASSAULT ON PLEASANT HILL ALPHA by Nick Spencer & Jesus Saiz – this blockbuster crossover event continues across various Avengers titles this Spring. All-New, All-Different Avengers, Sam Wilson Captain America, Uncanny Avengers, New Avengers, Ultimates, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and more – nobody is safe from Pleasant Hill!

MARVEL COMICS’ PRESENTS SPIDER-WOMEN #1!

Spider-Gwen, Spider-Woman and Silk, team-up for an all-new crossover event

                                                                                                              

New York, NY — October 14th, 2015 — After the events of SPIDER-VERSE, Jessica Drew, Cindy Moon and Gwen Stacy have been developing a unique kind of friendship from across the multiverse. But when things go awry in Gwen’s universe, Silk and Spider-Woman of the Marvel Universe find themselves stranded in Gwen’s reality while their dangerous doppelgangers run rampant in THEIR New York!

 

Helmed by the three series writers — Jason Latour (Spider-Gwen), Robbie Thompson (Silk), and Dennis Hopeless (Spider-Woman) – the arachnid ladies of the Spider-Verse are about to embark on a crossover event that will delve into a brand new adventure that will take Spider-Gwen, Spider-Woman and Silk down a path that will forever change who they are and how they think of their corners of the Spider-Verse.

 

“There’s going to be adventure, intrigue, fisticuffs, and some big twists, but I’m most excited about the personal story for each of these characters as they go through this dimension-hopping event,” explains Silk writer Robbie Thompson with Newsarama. “They’re all going to be tested and changed by this crossover.”

Being part of the “Spider-mythos” has never been easy going for any hero of the Marvel Universe and these ladies are about to enter an interdimensional crucible that will challenge them, not only as individual heroes, but as a team and how they can work together as a cohesive kick-ass  unit. “I think what’s intriguing about the three of them is that they’re really just getting to know one another,” says Jason Latour. “But as far as the initial dynamic—Jessica is definitely the big sister who’s a little frustrated by how much these girls don’t know about being superheroes.”

Next year, bear witness to the first crossover of its kind and get answers to questions you didn’t even know you had as Spider-Gwen, Spider-Woman, and Silk jump dimensions and show what it takes to be called SPIDER-WOMEN in the first action-packed chapter SPIDER-WOMEN #1!
