Mark Brooks’ Crisis-style cover for Avengers: No Surrender #1

Illustrated by Mark Brooks, the wraparound cover depicts pretty much every major player currently calling themselves an Avenger. The USAvengers are represented by heroes including Cannonball and Squirrel Girl, the Falcon-led team is present, along with members of the Uncanny Avengers and Occupy Avengers star Hawkeye. 

The cover homages George Perez’s iconic cover for Crisis on Infinite Earths, the classic DC Comics storyline that rebooted the publisher’s entire continuity in themed-1980s. Whether “No Surrender” has the same level of effect on the Avengers as the original Crisis event did on the DCU remains to be seen, but considering Marvel has already introduced the fact that the team’s continuity has been changed, illustrated by the retconned introduction of Voyager as a founding member, it’s likely “No Surrender” will leave the team in a very different place than readers are used to. While she’s not visible in the cover art, Marvel has made it clear that Voyager will factor into the storyline in a major way.
