Fan-favorite Marvel Cosmic writer Dan Abnett is writing a second prose novel for Marvel with Avengers: Everybody Wants To Rule The World.

Abnett previously wrote the Guardians of the Galaxy prose Rocket Raccoon & Groot: Steal the Galaxy! as well as the 2008 comic book that inspired a multi-million dollar movie.

The plot of Avengers: Everybody Wants To Rule The World sees the team scattered to the far reaches of the globe, with Captain America grappling with the forces of Hydra in Berlin and Black Widow and Hawkeye on a mission in the Savage Land. Meanwhile, Thor does battle with an entire army in Siberia, the Hulk and Nick Fury team up in Mangapore, and Iron Man battles Ultron in Washington.

The book will also feature A.I.M, the High Evolutionary and the machinations of Ultron, according to Marvel.com.

“The Avengers are my favorite Marvel team,” Abnett said, “So that helped enormously. The idea was to do a great big, epic story that represented the Avengers at their best, doing what they do best, taking on planet-threatening monstrosities. The main guide Marvel gave me to begin with was to start from that core team roster from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I’ve added to that a bit. Then I gave them an Earth-shaking, staggering threat, which I hope won’t be too much for them to deal with. It’s got to be big. Without the artwork of comics to give you the fun and games, you need the fun and games to be present there in the prose for it to be big and expansive. It needed to be ambitious.”

Abnett is also writing Guardians 3000 for Marvel, which hits this October.

Look for Avengers: Everybody Wants To Rule The World next April.
