Al Ewing and Leonard Kirk Put Wasp and Vision on the Case in ‘Avengers Inc.’ Series

Al Ewing and Leonard Kirk combine hard-boiled mystery and super hero action in their new ongoing series Avengers Inc. this September.

Founding Avenger Wasp and a familiar looking android by the name of Victor Shade take center stage at the start of the series after a series of super villain murders (which may have been perpetrated by Shade himself). The series will also tie in to the current Avengers series by Jed MacKay and C.F. Villa.

Ewing described the set-up for the new series as “Avengers Inc. takes the beating, buzzing heart of the original Avengers, teams her up with an undead mystery man with an identity so secret even he doesn’t know it, and sends them both out to solve the most amazing, fantastic and uncanny whodunnits the Marvel Universe has to offer! It’s kind of a classic ‘will-they-won’t-they’ crime-solving partnership—or it would be if the ‘will-they’ in question was ‘save the world from…’ Well, that’d be telling.”

Kirk is excited to place “…familiar characters that leans more into detective skills over super strength, wit rather than eye beams and cunning instead of small, genetically mutated, furry creatures.”
