As Fear Itself ravages the Marvel Universe, red hot writer Nick Spencer (Iron Man 2.0) and fan favorite artist Scot Eaton (Fear Itself: Book of The Skull) answer the call taking Steve Rogers and the Secret Avengers into the fray beginning in Secret Avengers #13! Steve Rogers, America’s super-soldier, is well accustomed to making tough calls, but none may be tougher than the ones he’ll have to make to successfully sabotage the abominable threat of Fear Itself.  As the Marvel Universe begins fall like dominoes before one of his bitterest enemies, Rogers will have to recruit a new group of heroes into the fight for freedom of mind, body and soul…and confront the ideals he upheld as the Sentinel of Liberty head-on!

"I couldn't be happier to have a rising talent like Nick taking the reins of Secret Avengers as we head into Fear Itself” exclaimed SVP of Publishing, Tom Brevoort. “As evidenced in his THUNDER Agents work, Nick's got a thoroughly modern approach to the espionage tale, and I expect him to do great things with Steve's covert squad."

Get your first taste of what Spencer and Eaton have in store for America’s deep cover heroes this April as the duo helms the special introductory POINT ONE edition of Secret Avengers #12.1 – the perfect starting point for new readers eager to check out the series that has everyone talking! From there, witness the opening shot in the team’s guerilla war against Fear Itself for their highest stakes mission yet this May, only in Secret Avengers #13!
