AVENGERS UNDERCOVER #1-10 (Dennis Hopeless / Kev Walker)

Dans le cadre de sa campagne de publicité pour la seconde vague de titres “All New” Marvel Now, l’éditeur Marvel Comics dévoile au compte-goute plusieurs “aperçus” des nouvelles séries qui sortiront à partir de janvier prochain. Il semble que la plupart de ces “teasers” fassent références à la première promo “Inhumanity” présentant les héros que l’éditeur mettra en avant pendant l’année 2014.

C’est lors du New York Comic Con du 11 octobre que l’éditeur Marvel Comics présentera la nouvelle série “Descent” qui succèdera à Avengers Arena, avec toujours le scénariste Dennis Hopeless et le dessinateur Kev Walker aux manettes.
Cette rupture entre les deux séries marque la fin de ce que le scénariste considère comme la première “saison”, et le début de la deuxième.

[quote=“Dennis Hopeless”]In my mind, Arcade had to win. The whole point of the series was putting these characters against an unwinnable scenario and showing how it changed them. This was never a story about perfect heroes who win out despite the odds. It’s a story about a worst-case scenario and what it takes to survive. At the same time, we didn’t want Arcade to succeed in killing all of these characters. There are a lot of stories left to tell with them, especially now that the world knows what they’ve just been through.

Arcade definitely thinks he’s won, both the game and the respect of the world. In “Avengers Undercover,” we’ll be dealing with an Arcade who is on top of the world. He’s basking in the afterglow of his greatest victory, while the survivors are dealing with the consequences of defeat. Our first arc deals heavily with both situations.[/quote]

[quote=“Dennis Hopeless”]The videos were an Internet phenomenon. In the three months since their escape, the survivors have become pseudo-celebrities. The whole world knows who they are and everyone seems to have an opinion about what they did (or didn’t) do in the arena.

Murder World changed these kids in profound ways and getting famous for it has changed them even more. We find them at the beginning of Avengers Undercover #1 struggling with the fact that they no longer fit very well into their old lives. They may have survived but none of them really made it all the way back.[/quote]

Voici quelques pages de Avengers Undercover #5:

[quote=“Dennis Hopeless”] The characters inhabit a moral grey area and most of the conflict comes from the kids trying to decide between lightness and dark. We needed a villain who could make the dark side seem reasonable and even appealing. And with the word “Avengers” on our covers, it made sense to shoot for an old school Avengers villain. Zemo was one of the first names editor Bill Rosemann and I threw out. Fortunately, no one else was using him.

I love Zemo’s moral ambiguity. Helmut has never been evil for evil’s sake. Sure, his father was a Nazi and he sort of dresses like a Nazi, but this is a complicated man. He’s a self-interested pragmatist who’s capable of just about anything if properly motivated. But his is a practical brand of villainy that makes a certain amount of sense. It makes him relatable. Relatable villains are a lot more fun to write.[/quote]

Le dessinateur Tigh Walker (aucune parenté) remplacera le dessinateur Kev Walker (qui déménage sur New Avengers) pour le final de la série Avengers Undercover.

Voici quelques pages de Avengers Undercover #8:

[quote]Tigh is coming in to take over for Kev Walker who is moving on to “New Avengers.” I could write a whole dissertation on the ways we will miss Kev, but I’ll spare you. The simple fact is, Kev Walker is a tough act to follow.

Amazingly, Tigh stepped straight up to the plate with Issue #8 and crushed it. We gave him two of the craziest issues in the whole series, and he didn’t miss a single beat. His art is dense and kinetic. His storytelling is superb, and he draws the hell out of those small quiet character moments. He’s perfect for this story.[/quote]
