Marvel "Architects" Brian Michael Bendids and Mike Deodato are bringing New Avengers into the Fear Itself conflict as of July's issue #14, with "every active Avenger" (and some new ones) joining the battle against the God of Fear.At the C2E2 convention last month in Chicago, Bendis said that Fear Itself would bring major changes to the lineups of both of his Avengers books (Avengers and New Avengers). "Fear Itself is allowing the team a complete roster change," Bendis said, adding that Fear Itself will also bring some unexpected romantic pairings within the teams. The teaser image released by Marvel for New Avengers #14 features a member of the Serpent's Worthy blacked out; keeping the character's identity a secret, much like in previously released images for comics including Avengers Academy #15. In advance press, it has already been revealed that the green Hulk and the Juggernaut are among the nine members of the Worthy. Fear Itself #1 established Sin and the Serpent as the first two.
