HAVE NO FEAR AMERICA!
MARVEL PRESENTS THE U.S.AVENGERS!
They’re the Team you can Trust!
New York, NY—July 1, 2016 — The security of the Marvel Universe is fractured. The world’s first line of defense, S.H.I.E.L.D., can no longer be trusted. The United States no longer has a super-spy agency with its best interests at heart – until now. Prepare for the U.S.Avengers!
Billionaire playboy, Roberto Da Costa, has formed an all-new A.I.M. – American Intelligence Mechanics! Endorsed by the government and positioned to replace S.H.I.E.L.D., A.I.M. is here to protect the United States from the most outlandish threats imaginable. Their mission: save the world and have fun doing it!
Speaking with The Washington Post, series writer Al Ewing offered some insight into Da Costa’s desire to form the U.S.Avengers, “He came to America in his teens, and, as both an actual and fictional minority, a South American mutant, he’s experienced the ugly side of it. But he’s seen the best of America, too. He has an absolute love for his adopted country, and he’ll fight to the end to save lives and help people.”
Also featuring the All-new Iron Patriot, tomorrow’s Captain America today, Thunderbolt Ross – the Red Hulk, the high-flying Cannonball, the unbeatable Squirrel Girl (along with her patriotic squirrel legion), and more, the U.S.Avengers will dare any danger – no matter how unbelievably awesome that danger might be – to defend freedom, democracy, apple pie, bald eagles and the electric guitar!
“U.S.Avengers will be a bold, brawny book that will distill everything that you love about and everything that you fear about this great land of ours into twenty pages of high-octane patriotic action every issue,” said series editor Tom Brevoort.
Action, adventure and intrigue wrapped in the red, white, and blue! The U.S.Avengers are touching down this December!

MARVEL COMICS PROUDLY PRESENTS
“BLACK PANTHER: A NATION UNDER OUR FEET – PART TWO”
FEATURING THE WORLD DEBUT OF
“BEAST WITH IT” BY PRODIGY OF MOBB DEEP FEAT. MARK THE BEAST
Innovative Marvel Video Series Bridges Marvel Comics with Top Music Talent
New York, NY—June 29th, 2016 — Today, Marvel Comics continues to present this year’s breakout Marvel Super Hero – the Black Panther – through a monthly video series that continues to link the world of comics and hip-hop blending animated comics along with commentary from Black Panther writer, Ta-Nehisi Coates. Additionally, “Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet – Part Two” is launching the brand new track, “Beast With It” by Prodigy of Mobb Deep, featuring Mark the Beast.
This new video series is designed to present the world of Black Panther to a whole new audience and will offer fans a monthly recap of the best-selling comic book series prior to the latest issue being made available and on sale.
Black Panther #1, written by The Atlantic national correspondent and National Book Award winner, Ta-Nehisi Coates, accompanied with outstanding art by Brian Stelfreeze, garnered international buzz and attention upon the announcement of this series in 2015, debuted as the best-selling comic for the month of April, and is on track to be one of the best-selling comics of 2016.
Continuing the excitement surrounding Marvel’s celebrated Super Hero T’Challa, the Black Panther, the latest episode of this revolutionary multi-artist hip-hop-inspired video series samples a brand new track, “Beast With It”, by Prodigy of Mobb Deep, featuring Mark the Beast.
“I am honored to be a part of another cool project from Marvel Comics and this new video series is going to be a smash,” states Prodigy of Mobb Deep. “Black Panther has always been one of my favorite Marvel characters and the new series is destined to become a huge hit — Ta-Nehisi Coates really did his thing with this one!”
“Comics and music are two art forms that continually speak to one another, and with Ta-Nehisi and Brian Stelfreeze’s epic series flying off the shelves, we are doing just that,” says Axel Alonso, Marvel Editor In Chief. “It’s our honor to partner with the legendary Prodigy for this latest installment.”
This new video series has already reached global proportion and will further emphasize how Marvel is the premiere name when it comes to story-telling, diverse character development, and now, musical integration.
Black Panther #3 is available digitally through the Marvel Digital Comic Shop and at all local comic book retailers. To find a comic shop near you, visit www.comicshoplocator.com or call 1-888-comicbook.
