'Avengers' writer Jonathan Hickman: 'We needed a bigger team'

By
Avengers writer Jonathan Hickman has explained why the title's team roster had to be expanded for the Marvel NOW! era.

The scribe said that twice-monthly it will feature "bigger threats" and "bigger stakes" than before, forcing the creative team to include a group of up to 20 heroes.

"We made it, if possible, even bigger and the threats even larger and the stakes even higher," he told USA Today.

"As a result, we needed a bigger team, so we'll have arguably one of the largest Avengers teams in the history of the franchise and things just spiral out of control from there."

Avengers will feature a rotating artistic lineup of Jerome Opena, Dustin Weaver, Adam Kubert and Mike Deodato.

The first issue of the rebooted series arrived in stores today (December 5).
