Avengers past and present assemble in this preview of Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness's Avengers #1.
The two eras will connect to take on the threat of the Final Host of Dark Celestials - a story that begins in May 5's Avengers Free Comic Book Day issue written by Aaron with art from Sara Pichelli.
"It’s sort of a direct lead in to Avengers #1," Aaron told Marvel.com. "It’s mostly a story about Black Panther and Odin—a meeting of the king of Wakanda and the All-Father of Asgard, which again kind of stretches back to those prehistoric Avengers and plants the seeds for the Celestial threats the Avengers will face. And it’s free!"
Avengers #1 is due out on shelves May 2.

A NEW ERA DAWNS FOR EARTH’S MIGHTIEST HEROES – courtesy of JASON AARON and ED McGUINNESS!
Thor Odinson. Steve Rogers. Tony Stark. The Big Three of the Avengers are reunited at last! And just in time to save the world from total annihilation at the hands of their most powerful enemies yet: the 2000-foot-tall space gods known as Celestials.
Behold the coming of the Final Host.
Who will answer the call to assemble for a wild new era of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes? Hint: one of them has a flaming skull for a head. And what strange, world-shaking connection exists between the Final Host and Odin’s ancient band of Prehistoric Avengers?
