State Avengers ... assemble!

Marvel introduced a new comic book series called U.S. Avengers #1 in September, with each state getting their own specific comic book hero. Iron Man is the Avenger for California, Luke Cage the hero for New York, and the Totally Awesome Hulk will make for smashing entertainment in Utah.

The choices though are far from random. Extensive research was done through Marvel's history to match a particular Avenger with their state.

"Beginning with places of birth, and expanding outward to key stories featuring the character in that particular location, we were able to hone in on a specific and unique Avengers character with a connection to each of the Fifty States-and more," said Tom Brevoort, SVP/Executive Editor with Marvel.

Not all 50 of the U.S. Avenger heroes have been revealed yet, but several of the characters who have appeared or are set to appear in Marvel movies and shows have already been assigned their state. Black Widow is the Avenger for Connecticut, Steve Rogers for Delaware and everyone's favorite web-slinger Spider-Man for New Hampshire. And the hero of the upcoming Marvel movie Doctor Strange, premiering in theaters on November 4, is the Avenger for Pennsylvania.

The Walt Disney Company is the parent company of Marvel Entertainment and this station.
