“The very first page of Avengers #1 opens with the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC, and that the existence of that group will be a running story thread throughout Jason’s entire tenure on the series, much in the same way he’s been weaving the dual legends of Young Thor and Old King Thor throughout his time on Thor,” [series editor Tom] Brevoort told CBR. “We’re planning on doing a series of stand-alone issues along the way, each one focusing on a different member of that primordial group, The first one will be Avengers #7, the origin of the Mastodon-riding Ghost Rider of 1,000,000 BC, with artwork by Sara Pichelli.”
Avengers #1, by Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness, arrives in May 2018 from Marvel Comics.
These extra origin or flashback issues looks like the way Marvel will have Avengers be out 15 times a year as I believe they announced.
