Today we learn some of the primary heroes who will be facing off the villains teased last week in Marvel's fall event series Axis. In a poster first seen in the New York City's transit system promoting next month's Special Edition: NYC convention, Marvel's flagship heroes Iron Man and Thor are joined by Storm, Luke Cage, Deadpool and Medusa. These heroes were teased in the villains image, seen to the right, in the bottom section flipped upside down.
First teased at April's C2E2, Axis has been compared by Marvel's Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso to Avengers Vs. X-Men and has reportedly been in the works for "some time." The series will be written by Rick Remender and will spring out of his ongoing series Uncanny Avengers; although Jim Cheung has illustrated both of the Axis teaser images, no artist has been announced as of yet by the publisher.
