The Brian Michael Bendis era is over. The guiding hand of the Avengers franchise at Marvel Comics has essentially relinquished control of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with the advent of Marvel NOW!.

The Avengers Assemble To Kick Off The Summer Blockbuster Season – Biff Bam Pop’s Box Office Predictions, Weekend Of May 4th, 2012
And so it begins – the summer blockbuster season, which kicks off with what just may be the film to beat. Let’s not waste time – we all know The Avengers is going to do big business this weekend, but how much will it actually gross over the next three days. Here are our predictions:
One of the things I like the most about the summer blockbuster season is all of the cool stuff that ties in with a big movie. I’m specifically talking about books. Sure, there’s McToys for McMovies or Big Gulp Cups featuring your favourite hero or villain (collect ‘em all, whydoncha?). But really, my thrill is always the DK books that come out to tie in with the big flicks. Case in point, the publisher’s latest Avengers themed book, The Avengers: The Ultimate Guide To Earth’s Mightiest Heroes! Or, as I’m thinking of it, the Encyclopedia Avengers.
