Everybody Wants To Rule The World in new Avengers novel

September 2nd, 2014 by Marc Comments

Let’s forget comics and do an Avengers story in a full-blown novel!

The adventures of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes can be found in the pages of Marvel Comics every week, but now the Avengers are out to conquer the world of prose! Marvel is proud to announce AVENGERS: EVERYBODY WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD, the newest in the growing line of Marvel prose novels! Following the release of 2014’s Rocket Raccoon and Groot: Steal the Galaxy, New York Times-bestselling writer Dan Abnett returns for Marvel’s second original novel! Scheduled for release in April 2015, just in time for the Avengers’ return to the big screen on May 1st in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, this action-packed prose adventure follows Earth’s Mightiest across the universe!

The Avengers have fought their fair share of dangerous and deadly foes. Are they prepared to face them again – all at once?! In Berlin, Captain America battles against the forces of Hydra. In the Savage Land, Black Widow and Hawkeye attempt to foil the maniacal plot of A.I.M. In Washington, the Invincible Iron Man battles the robotic hordes of Ultron. In Mangapore, Bruce Banner and Nick Fury do battle against the High Evolutionary! The attacks can’t all be a coincidence—but who, or what, is behind them?

“Marvel Prose Novels offer a whole new way to experience the Marvel Universe,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “Who better to bring the Avengers to life for an original prose novel than Dan Abnett? This one is crammed cover to cover with the action Marvel fans love.”

Brought together to fight the foes no single super hero could withstand, what hope do the Avengers have when they’re scattered and separated, forced to battle legions of their deadliest foes? Strap in for a tale unlike any other when fan-favorite scribe Dan Abnett takes the Avengers for a spin in their first, ever original prose novel: AVENGERS: EVERYBODY WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD!

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….
