Bendis' Avengers Assemble Gets The Axe

Body

Marvel's answer to The Avengers movie that failed miserably, at least IMO, is officially getting the axe.

Avengers Assemble has been announced to be getting cancelled to subscribers of the book, with their subscriptions getting rolled over to Hickman's Avengers.

The series saw Brian Michael Bendis write The Avengers taking on Thanos and bringing the Guardians of the Galaxy and Iron Man into the equation.

What started off in the 6-digit numbers quickly dropped to the 30,000s by issue #6 with, of course, Bendis leaving the book and Marvel bringing on a new creative team.

The current crop of the Marvel Cosmic relaunch under Axel Alonso, Stephen Wacker, Jeph Loeb and Bendis appears to be going in a similar direction.

Bleeding Cool spotted the news for the Avengers Assemble cancellation:

Title Changes Coming!

Avengers Assemble will be ending soon, and all subscribers will roll over to Avengers written by Marvel superstar Jonathan Hickman. Avenging Spider-Man will be ending, and all subscribers will be switching to the all new Superior Spider-Man Team-Up written by Christopher Yost. Last but not least Marvel Universe Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will be changing its title to Marvel Universe Avengers Assemble. Be on the lookout for these exciting new titles!

Update: Official word from Marvel says it's not canceled.

Yet?
