The Future of Avengers Arena Is Marvel NOW!

This December, prepare for the deadliest game of all as Avengers Arena #1 kicks off an all-new ongoing series from rising star creators writer Dennis Hopeless and artist Kev Walker. As part of Marvel NOW!, Avengers Arena  joins a number of titles that will take the Marvel Universe in an all-new direction, great for new and lapsed readers alike!

Trapped on an isolated island, 16 superhuman young adults (including members of the Runaways, The Avengers Academy and Darkhawk) are given a chilling ultimatum by their demented captor: Fight or die…only one will walk out alive! Thus begins a primal battle that will test the skills, stamina and morals of each combatant. Welcome to Murder World, where the secrets are plenty, alliances are fleeting, and the key to victory might be rewriting the rules of the game. Who will survive?

Marvel NOW! is the culmination of Marvel ReEvolution, the groundbreaking new initiative to evolve the comic book experience through innovation. With Avengers Arena, Marvel NOW! ensures fans will discover an entirely new perspective on what it means to be a teen hero…and to survive!

The series will feature established characters but also some new ones like the enigmatic Deathlocket and the mysterious Braddock Academy.

Each issue of Avengers Arena features special augmented reality content available exclusive through the Marvel AR app – including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost.
