Updated July 10, 2017: Marvel has released a timeline showing how they arrived at Avengers #672's Legacy numbering.
Original Story: Coming out of the events of Generations, one of Marvel's oldest (and now arguably flagship) titles and newest titles crossover for the beginning of the Marvel Legacy intiative, and they both happen to be written by Mark Waid.
The Avengers, along with artist Jesús Saiz, and the Champions, with artist Humberto Ramos, will kick off Legacy together for the crossover "Worlds Collide." Here's a first look at the first solicitations for each issue, including the re-old-numbered Avengers.
Check back Monday as Newsarama catches up with Waid for details, including whether Independent Avengers and Relationship Avengers play a role.
