S.H.I.E.L.D. is compromised. The regular Avengers are semi-persona non grata. What the heck is even going on with Captain America and Hydra? Never fear, the U.S. Avengers are here.
We just got this from Marvel:
The security of the Marvel Universe is fractured. The world’s first line of defense, S.H.I.E.L.D., can no longer be trusted. The United States no longer has a super-spy agency with its best interests at heart – until now. Prepare for the U.S.Avengers!
Billionaire playboy, Roberto Da Costa, has formed an all-new A.I.M. – American Intelligence Mechanics! Endorsed by the government and positioned to replace S.H.I.E.L.D., A.I.M. is here to protect the United States from the most outlandish threats imaginable. Their mission: save the world and have fun doing it
Yeah, so we can probably already get behind it, but it gets better:
Also featuring the All-new Iron Patriot, tomorrow’s Captain America today, Thunderbolt Ross – the Red Hulk, the high-flying Cannonball, the unbeatable Squirrel Girl (along with her patriotic squirrel legion), and more, the U.S.Avengers will dare any danger – no matter how unbelievably awesome that danger might be – to defend freedom, democracy, apple pie, bald eagles and the electric guitar!
I think you may have missed the important line here, so I’ll emphasize: THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL ALONG WITH HER PATRIOTIC SQUIRREL LEGION. I don’t know about you, but I really want an army of Patriotic Squirrels in my life as soon as possible.
Sadly, issue #1 of U.S. Avengers will not make it to shelves until December, but until then we can enjoy the below images and smile thinking of patriotic squirrels.
