Avengers Inc. Cancelled Early By Marvel

Avengers Inc. is the Avengers series starring Janet Van Dyne and Victor Shade in a fashion that reflects the Avengers TV series.

Article Summary

  • Avengers Inc., featuring Janet Van Dyne and Victor Shade, canceled after issue #5.
  • The series was reflective of the Avengers TV show, not the usual superhero fare.
  • Marvel's Tom Brevoort confirmed the cancellation due to low readership.
  • Final issues of Avengers Inc. to be published in late December 2023 and January 2024.

Avengers Inc. is the Avengers series starring Janet Van Dyne and Victor Shade in a fashion that reflects the Avengers TV series rather than the superhero team. Launching in September from Al Ewing and Leonard Kirk, there was no issue in Marvel Comics' February 2023 solicits and solicitations. Diamond had a stub for issue 6, as have online stores such as Midtown, Third Eye, Westfield, Forbidden Planet and more, but no actual comic book. So what's up? It looks like Marvel Comics may have… changed its mind.

Avengers Inc.

Marvel Comcis Executive Editor and Senior Vice President Tom Brevoort, was asked on his Substack, "Is Avengers Inc. over with #5? I've been enjoying it so far" and gave the straightforward answer, "Unfortunately, Cathal, there weren't enough like you, so we will be wrapping up the series with issue #5."

The penultimate issue will be published just after Christmas, and the final issue on the last day of January.
