"Gangnam Style" in his Avengers #1 Variant.
The Illumanti will become the new New Avengers--Captain America, Iron Man, Mr. Fantastic and Doctor Strange; with Beast and Black Panther joining the team, plus the return of Black Bolt, Namor to still be involved--and at least one new member still to be revealed.
MARVEL NOW! New Avengers writer Jonathan Hickman took part in a Liveblog yesterday, and these were the key points he made about the new team...
"The[ir] catalyst is an event in Wakanda with Black Panther, the only man who told the original Illuminati it was a mistake. Something occurs so earth-shattering he sees no other course of action than to call on them. This event is so huge than even the people in the Illuminati who do not currently like each other are forced to put differences aside.
"I don't think people will be surprised to learn that even as these guys go about their job, some will grow to hate one another. This is not a cheery happy story. This is the 'Death Avengers.' They all think they're in charge and none of them are.
"We need new bad guys. I'm making a lot. Will you see some traditional Avengers favorite villains? Of course."
