Two industry legends team up for the greatest Kang saga of all time in Avengers: War Across Time, a new limited series starting in January. Set during Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Don Heck’s original groundbreaking run of Avengers, this extraordinary saga will be a love letter to Avengers history just in time for the team’s 60th anniversary.
Joined by fellow superstar Alan Davis, Eisner Hall of Famer Paul Levitz, known for his storied career at DC Comics, writes his first-ever Marvel Comics story in this five-issue limited series. Avengers: War Across Time will see the original Avengers at their very best as they battle an onslaught of powerful and strange new threats that strike at the very heart of the team. At the center of it all will be Kang the Conqueror, reaching back from the furthest reaches of time to destroy the Avengers legacy!
Thor! Iron Man! Captain America! Giant-Man & The Wasp! It’s the classic Avengers against the Hulk on the streets of New York, and the beginning of a showdown with Kang the Conqueror that will span the centuries!
“I learned much of my writing craft from The Avengers, and it’s been a delight to pay homage to my old friends Stan, Jack and Don by trying to do something that might have been an extended issue #11.1,” Levitz explained. “We’ve been cooking this up for a long time, and I hope readers have as much fun with it as I did.”

“The original Avengers”? Humph… that would be “Mrs. Peel, we’re needed.”
@mark: If it’s the original, shouldn’t that be Dr. David Keel telling John Steed that they’re needed?
@Dennis Howard. For you, maybe. That didn’t have Diana Rigg.
Funny stories. As a child, I was forbidden to read comic books (like many children of my generation, alas). So my knowledge of the genre is sketchy at best. Back in 2011, my friends were all excited about an “Avengers” movie coming out. When they told me, so was I; I wanted to see Steed and Mrs. Peel on the big screen….
Yes, I’d seen the”Iron Man” and “Thor” movies, but I had no idea that there was a team called “The Avengers”.
Oof. I grew up exposed to media from both sides of the Atlantic so “Avengers” always needed disambiguation.
