During last month’s C2E2 Marvel revealed it’s next big event AXIS with nothing more than a rough logo image featuring the Avengers “A” and the X-Men’s “X” logos. The teaser image was seen at the conclusion of the Wolverine: 3 Months To Die Panel at C2E2. Now thanks to the cover of Diamonds June Previews we have our first official image of the actual event.
In my initial report on the event I stated that I thought this an Avengers Vs X-Men sequel of sorts that would feature the Red Skull and from the Previews cover it appears that I was right. The difference with this event being that instead of a “Vs” book, this will be an “&” event where the two teams work together.
The Previews cover shows half of the Jim Chueng image which features the villains Green Goblin, Loki, Sabertooth, Dr. Doom, Carnage with the Red Skull front and center in an Onslaught inspired costume. At the bottom of the cover you can see there is more to the image which lines up with the Special Edition New York City Comic Convention poster that features the heroes Storm, Thor, Luke Cage, Deadpool, Medusa with Iron Man front and center.
While the image for the Previews cover and Special Edition Con poster features art by Jim Cheung, no artist has been attached to the books yet, but Rick Remender has been named writer.
