Marvel has teased a new Uncanny title set to debut as part of the publisher’s Free Comic Book Day releases this May, and now it’s revealed what many readers have suspected for a while: there’s a new iteration the Uncanny Avengers En Route by writer Gerry Duggan and artist Javier Garrón.

Beginning in 2012 according to the Avengers Vs. X-Men event story, the Uncanny Avengers are traditionally a so-called “Unity Squad” designed to promote peace and cooperation between mutants and the other heroes of the Marvel Universe.

Now the title returns as part of Fall of X, Marvel’s next big, transformative X-Men story that promises to bring big, potentially dangerous changes to the mutant nation of Krakoa and the current mutant status quo that is affecting everyone shooting of this year’s big Hellfire Gala event.

But the new Uncanny Avengers aren’t just a new Unity Squad, they’ll also focus on a refreshed mystery surrounding the identity of a new, deadly Captain Krakoa, a superhero identity briefly used by Cyclops that incorporates Krakoan mutant technology. Whoever is behind the mask is causing problems for both humans and mutants for the new Uncanny Avengers to deal with.

“The devastating events of the Hellfire Gala and the tragic circumstances of FALL OF X call for the return of the Avengers’ Unity Squad in a new series of UNCANNY AVENGERS,” reads Marvel’s official announcement of the new Uncanny Avengers.

“Innocent people and world leaders are dead after simultaneous attacks on the US and Krakoa governments, and that means one thing: It’s time for a new group of Avengers,” the statement continued. “False flag attacks designed to foment anti-mutant hysteria unfold and hey, some of Steve Rogers’ best friends are mutants.

The new team consists of Captain America, Deadpool, Rogue, Quicksilver, Psylocke and Penance, some of whom are veterans of Unity Squad.

“Everything we’ve been working toward in our third act is coming to a head this summer,” Duggan stated during Marvel’s remote 60 Years of Uncanny X-Men panel, where the title was first announced. “The Uncanny Avengers exist to exemplify the unity between humanity and mutantdom, and they must work particularly hard at this now that relationships and friendships have become frayed in the events of FALL OF X.”

Uncanny Avengers #1 goes on sale on August 16th.
