The Avengers get an upgrade to fight monsters in ‘Mech Strike: Monster Hunters’ #1

The Avengers suit up again as monster hunters in new Mech Strike series.

Press Release

Marvel Comics has announced a new Mech Strike series called Mech Strike: Monster Hunters. The series is written by Christos Gage with art by Paco Diaz. The five-issue series launches in June and will feature Iron Man, Black Panther, Hulk, and more of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes outfitted in their brand-new monster-hunting mech suits.

“I’ve been a fan of giant robots and Marvel comics since I was a little kid,” Gage said. “The only other thing I loved as much was monsters. And now Mech Strike has gone and put them all together! It’s like I’ve been preparing my whole life to write this comic. You’ll get heroes, villains, giant mech suits, monsters, and monster mech suits…everything a great comic book should have! It’s the Avengers fighting the Marvel Universe’s deadliest villains to prevent a monster apocalypse. But can they prevent themselves from becoming the very monsters they’re trying to stop? Artist Paco Diaz is pulling out all the stops to melt your eyeballs when you see this! Hmm…eyeballs…yeah, we just might have a few of those too…”

So what’s Mech Strike: Monster Hunters about?

In last year’s AVENGERS: MECH STRIKE, the Avengers donned new mech armor to battle an unprecedented threat. Now a trio of the world’s most notorious super villains, assembled by Doctor Doom, have used the Eye of the Kraken to give themselves a mystical – and monstrous! –  upgrade. In order to defeat their foes, the Avengers must undergo a similar transformation – and become MONSTER HUNTERS! But will the heroes be consumed by their dark new powers?
