Nick Fury is currently assembling Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the Avengers movie – but what if a more questionable character put together his own skewed take on the world’s greatest super-team…or just threw together whoever was available?

Great effort and care has been put into assembling Fury’s crew, but when the threats are too pressing for that, the somewhat unhinged White Out – aided and abetted by his lobotomized butler Chives - hires Maxi-Tron, Ms. F, Mason, Nite Fang and…Stefanos. And a super-arrogant field leader, former-downtrodden-housewife with ‘issues,’ borderline-psychotic merc, self-centered punk and…a kebab shop owner join together to become our ‘ultimate defence.’

With comedic nods to all the big Marvel events of recent years – from Civil War to Fear Itself, 'The Avengers meet Family Guy via South Park' as The Almighties amass in their debut comic, where you can expect comedy, offbeat action and adventure!

Written by myself & Mike Gagnon, illustrated by Eleonora Kortsarz, Pablo Zambrano & D.C. White, The Almighties #1 is OUT NOW in $3.99 regular and Avenger-movie-poster parody Variant editions, and $1.99 Digital Edition! Published by Actuality Press, 32 pages, full color, and rated Teen+
