• Earth is in danger. Massive decommissioned S.H.I.E.L.D. satellites are about to fall on us all. It’s a P.R. nightmare in the making!
• Speaking of things falling from space: Nick Fury and special agent Phil Coulson are about to die painfully.
• Unless Hawkeye, Black Widow and Spider-Woman save them!
• Maria Hill is wounded. The hitman made it personal. Hill’s potential savior? M.O.D.O.K.!
Secret Avengers #2, out April 9

|I love that 616 Jessica and Ultimate Jessica can be seen together in that Spider-Verse art.|
It should be interesting to see if/how they get to interact! As far as the Spider-Verse goes, 616 Jessica is pretty unassociated with Spider-Man/Peter Parker, while Ultimate Jessica struggles with being very much tied to him. The two are different in many other respects as well, but I would definitely love to see them figuring each other out and working together.
PREVIEW: AVENGERS ASSEMBLE #25
RELEASE DATE: March 26
ALL-OUT WAR IN NEW YORK CITY!
• The demented Dr. June Covington has taken on A.I.M., and is winning. The Avengers are caught in the middle of this Mad Science War!
• But, now, this situation is more important — because there’s a second Terrigen cocoon in New York, ticking like a time bomb, about to go off, Covington wants it and A.I.M. has it.
• SPIDER-GIRL, who has been mentored by the Avengers in her search for her teacher, abducted by Covington for Nefarious Genetic Purposes, now leads the charge, as the Avengers Assemble to end this conflict before the Terrigen cocoon explodes and New York is doooooomed.
Starting in November, Slott and Olivier Coipel are bringing “every Spider-Man from every universe together for the first time.” The story kicks off in “Amazing Spider-Man” #9, continuing in that book and other, yet-to-be-revealed titles.
…Asked about female characters who will appear in Spider-Verse, “You will see 616 spider-characters who will be enmeshed in this,” Slott said, including Jessica Drew.

• The Fury reappears inside the Kowloon Walled City — which is deep inside the Chinese territory. Who you gonna call?
• No-one, but Nick Fury, Hawkeye and a bunch of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents come anyway. Problems? You bet. The Kowloon gangs want The Fury as well.
• On the Helicarrier, someone dies. The ground is not steady. Things escalate.
