The blockbuster Avengers crossover of 2016 starts here! It’ll take all of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to uncover the mysteries behind Pleasant Hill – and it’s all happening in AVENGERS: STANDOFF! this Spring! Celebrate the 75thAnniversary of Captain America with a bang as heroes from across the Marvel Universe strap in for an explosive thrill ride!

From the outside it looks like any other remote small town. Only Pleasant Hill is anything but. This gated community has more than its fair share of secrets. Secrets that keep its residents locked away behind its walls. But the time has come for them to finally escape. As their revolt begins – why then are the Avengers trying to keep them inside? And what does it have to do with S.H.I.E.L.D.? What’s hidden at Pleasant Hill might be too much for even the Avengers to handle

“It was really about trying to craft an event that was very ground-level, very character-driven, where everybody’s in close quarters in a locked-in space,” says Nick Spencer, in an interview with Marvel.com. “It was a perfect setting for us in the scale we wanted to give and the direction and the feel of the event.”

Kicking off this March in STANDOFF!: ASSAULT ON PLEASANT HILL ALPHA by Nick Spencer & Jesus Saiz – this blockbuster crossover event continues across various Avengers titles this Spring. All-New, All-Different Avengers, Sam Wilson Captain America, Uncanny Avengers, New Avengers, Ultimates, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and more – nobody is safe from Pleasant Hill

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
