UPDATE: Comics: Avengers Assemble Cancelled


assemble bannerUPDATE: It seems Midtown Comics released some false info in their newsletter. CBR has confirmed via Marvel that the title is not cancelled. The following update was issued:

Whoops! Has Kang been messing with the timestream or have we just been getting confused?

The Avengers keep on assembling! Avengers Assemble is not ending, it’s carrying on its merry way, and its loyal subscribers will stay right where they are.

Marvel Universe Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will also be keeping on track.

We’re so sorry about the confusion! Avengers forever!


I made sure to state this was comic book related in the title so you wouldn’t think Disney XD‘s new Marvel cartoon, Avengers Assemble, was cancelled before the first episodes even air. We reported that DC were cancelling four titles yesterday and today we have word on some Marvel cancellations and title changes. Bleeding Cool posted a section of the Marvel Subscription newsletter that reveals some of the shake-ups

Avengers Assemble will be ending soon (no exact issue number revealed), but subscribers of that title will be rolled over to Avengers by Jonathan Hickman. Avenging Spider-Man is said to be cancelled, but really they’re just relaunching the book as Avenging Spider-Man Team-Up. Marvel Universe Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will be getting a shorter title with Marvel Universe Avengers Assemble. The big title in the bunch, Avengers Assemble, was launched to run with the movie and featured the Guardians of the Galaxy coming down to earth to help the Avengers fight Thanos. It set up some of the things we’re seeing in other comics, like Iron Man joining the Guardians. With this book ending many are left speculating that Kelly Sue DeConnick‘s Captain Marvel might be the next comic on the chopping block. We’ll be sure to keep our ear to the ground for word on that book. What do you think about the new round of cancellations and title changes? Did you have any of these on your pull list?
