Jump to: navigation, search

The New Avengers is a team originally formed due to a mass break-out at the super villain prison The Raft. The team then became a splinter group of Avengers that chose not to comply with federal superhuman registration, as opposed to the government-sanctioned team gathered in Mighty Avengers, which itself was supplanted by a different government-sanctioned team in the series Dark Avengers. The team was reformed in June 2010 as part of the "Heroic Age" story line.
