Captain America will organize a special team of Avengers to venture to the Savage Land as part of the upcoming Empyre crossover. The team will make their trek in Empyre: Avengers #1, a one-shot from writer Jim Zub and artist Carlos Magno.

It's unclear which Avengers will heed the call, but Zub says readers are in for some surprises - including Ka-Zar and Shanna the She-Devil, naturally.

Empyre is all about an intergalactic threat targeting Earth, battling our heroes on multiple fronts, putting them on the defensive while the world hangs in the balance," Zub told Marvel.com in the announcement. "Empyre: Avengers showcases three important conflicts with an eclectic group of Avengers, some who we haven't seen as part of Earth's Mightiest Heroes in quite a while. Some of these Avengers are ones I've written in the past (on Uncanny Avengers or Avengers: No Surrender) while others are characters I've been itching to write for years."
Empyre: Avengers #1 is due out in April. The cover, seen here, is by Steve McNiven. Expect Marvel's full April 2020 solicitations latert his month on Newsarama.
