Marvel Comics 05.26-06.03.10 | Meet the Secret Avengers, the Avengers Academy, and the all-new Thunderbolts!

The Heroic Age ushers in three new teams! First, the newly resurrected Steve Rogers heads up a covert version of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the all-new Secret Avengers #1 by Ed Brubaker and Mike Deodato, Jr., then a new teen team premieres in Christos Gage and Mike McKone’s Avengers Academy #1, and Luke Cage heads up a team of supervillains on the road to rehabilitation in Thunderbolts #144. Bonus: another pair of teasers for this summer’s Shadowland crossover.
