Derrick Chew’s ‘Avengers’ #1 Variant Cover Showcases The Power Of The Scarlet Witch
by Brendan M. Allen
As Jed MacKay and C.F. Villa prepare to kick off a new era of Avengers this May, fans all week long can get a sneak peek of the stunning variant covers that will grace the debut issue. Today, feast your eyes on superstar artist Derrick Chew’s breathtaking cover spotlighting Scarlet Witch.
Redeemed and more confident in her abilities than ever before, Wanda will be rejoining the Avengers in the new run, lending her unmatched magic prowess to the team’s daunting new missions. In addition to reuniting with old friends, Wanda will also be working alongside her ex-husband Vision for the first time in years. Will sparks fly or will old wounds resurface? It’s a new chapter for this iconic Avengers pairing that fans dare not miss.
In MacKay and Villa’s Avengers saga, the team will embrace a new divine purpose after they’re gifted with knowledge of The Tribulation Events, a series of grand-scale disasters that will spark upheaval throughout the known universe. Fans got their first glimpse at MacKay’s overarching Avengers plan in last month’s year-ending one-shot, Timeless, where readers followed Kang in his hunt for the unobtainable “Missing Moment.”
Now, a dangerous game is afoot and the prize is greater than anything imaginable… Will the Avengers be able to triumph in the face of the Tribulation Events and learn the connection behind these earth-shattering threats and Kang’s quest? Or will they be reduced to mere pawns in an extraordinary scheme beyond their comprehension?
Chew’s spellbinding piece will also be available as a virgin variant cover. Check it out now and stay tuned for another Avengers #1 variant cover reveal tomorrow.
