New promo art for The Avengers

A new image collecting all of The Avengers together has been sent to comic-book shops to publicise the tie-in collection that Marvel is releasing.

According to the text that appears on the image itself this is Marvel's way of "familiarising audiences with the major characters of the film” and the stories will follow the movie's continuity.

The official blurb about the collected comics says readers will learn what happened between the events of Iron Man and Iron Man 2 , see Black Widow, Nick Fury and Agent Coulson in espionage action and find the official comics prequel to Captain America .

Cap is front and centre in the promo image, but what's this? Nobody puts our baby Scarlett Johansson in the corner!
