Meggan Steps Up and Joins The Hunt



The next big thing in the Marvel Universe is 'Infinity', which has Marvel's mainstream Avengers off in space facing off against something/someone called 'The Builders', plus Thanos features heavily. With the Avengers in Space, Earth lies undefended, um, there thousands of heroes in the Marvel U guys? Anyway Luke Cage will lead a team of heroes to fill The Avengers shoes whilst they are away.

Like most Marvel events there are plenty of spin-off titles which happen, one of them tied in to 'Infinity' called 'The Hunt'. Meggan, seen here on the cover to issue #1, and in the art below represents the Braddock Academy. So does this mean Avengers Arena is done and dusted by the time this starts?

INFINITY TIE-IN!

• Hank Pym, Wolverine, and She-Hulk bring the students of the Marvel Universe together to announce a new CONTEST OF CHAMPIONS!

• This CONTEST OF CHAMPIONS pits the super students of schools all over the Marvel U (including some you’ve never seen before) against each other.

• However, the Contest is interrupted when Thanos’ forces descend on Earth. What do they have to do with the young heroes?



Axel Alonso, Editor-in-chief at Marvel had this to say about Septembers release of 'The Hunt' in an interview with CBR...

Alonso: "Infinity: The Hunt" bounces all around the Marvel Universe, featuring students from schools you know -- Avengers Academy, the Future Foundation, the Jean Grey School, the Braddock Academy -- and schools you’ve never seen before. So there are tons of characters you already know and a bunch you don’t. So, let’s see: You’ll see one of the Power Pack in "Infinity: The Hunt," Alex Powers in "FF," a few New Mutants in "Fearless Defenders" and another series we haven’t announced yet, some of the New X-Men in "Wolverine and the X-Men," X-23 in "Avengers Arena," and Prodigy in "Young Avengers."
