New Savage Avengers Series Announced By Marvel

No Comments

This May, the Avengers are getting savage. As announced by Marvel Comics, a new Savage Avengers series is set to launch later this year. Writer David Pepose (Spencer & Locke, Scout’s Honor) and artist Carlos Magno (Kang The Conqueror, Robocop: Dead Or Alive) are set to provide a new take on Marvel’s “most dangerous group of Avengers.” 


The brand new team has Conan the Barbarian leading the way. Joining him will be Elektra’s Daredevil, Anti-Venom, Black Knight, Cloak & Dagger, and Weapon H. That makes for one heck of an unruly crew. The lineup was initially revealed by Marvel on the company’s official Twitter account. The publisher also revealed some initial cover art, which we’ve included below for you to check out.



Here is the synopsis for Savage Avengers. 


Since his exile from the Hyborian Age, Conan the Barbarian has conquered the most dangerous foes the modern Marvel Universe has to offer—but what happens when this hard-edged Cimmerian finds himself on the run from the cybernetic soldier of the future known as Deathlok? Outgunned and outmatched, Conan must turn to an unlikely group of loners, berserkers and killers if he hopes to survive the night—but can these Savage Avengers defy Deathlok’s murderous manhunt, or will they become the next targets in the crosshairs of tomorrow? 


Pepose had this to say about it. 


“Making my Marvel debut with SAVAGE AVENGERS is like getting drafted to the Yankees and then being told you also get to play for the Rangers on the weekend—not only do I get to write Conan the Barbarian, one of the most iconic characters in sword and sorcery, but I get to throw him into the wildest adventures imaginable alongside a brand-new crew of Marvel fan-favorites!


Teaming up Conan with Daredevil, Anti-Venom, Weapon H, Black Knight, and Cloak and Dagger allows so much personality and potential to this series, and artist Carlos Magno delivers showstopper after showstopper as he brings these characters to life—I can’t wait for readers to see what sparks fly when Conan and company are pitted against the most dangerous Deathlok of them all. Get ready to experience an epic battle of Cyborg versus Cimmerian, because this May, only the Savage will survive…”


This group is a relatively new invention in the pages of Marvel Comics. A version of the group first appeared in May 2019’s Free Comic Book Day offering from the publisher. That lineup included Wolverine, Punisher, Venom, Elektra and Doctor Voodoo, in addition to Conan. Things have changed quite a bit for this latest iteration. 


Savage Avengers #1 hits shelves on May 4.
