Avengers: Twilight writer Chip Zdarsky has revealed some of the themes behind the upcoming limited series from Marvel Comics.

The story places Captain America in a version of the future where many of the Avengers are dead, and the ideals that Steve Rogers holds dear aren’t needed anymore because the world is at peace. In an interview with ComicBook.com, Zdarsky expressed why Captain America is the perfect focal point for Avengers: Twilight.”Steve is the perfect character with which to see a changed future since he’s been through that experience before coming out of WW2,” he said. “His ethics and morals and outlook have a consistency to them, so seeing how he reacts to a changed America is always interesting, to me at least! And this future America is seemingly perfect, so Steve has to question whether or not to upset what his fellow Americans are comfortable with in pursuit of the truth.”

Zdarsky didn’t wish to spoil too much about Avengers: Twilight, but did reveal that Captain America will be reuniting with older characters and meeting new ones. He noted that Steve Rogers will come into contact with “The Defenders,” but the comic trailer and preview pages indicate this isn’t the beloved Marvel Comics team that everyone knows.

Zdarsky also asked that readers simply “enjoy the story” and avoid trying to “dissect” everything to see what may be coming. Instead, he wants Marvel Comics fans to let the story take them on a journey. “We live in a world where everything is picked apart and spoiled before people even read issue one, so all I’ll say is, if you enjoy my work and enjoy Daniel’s work, I think you’ll enjoy this story of re-finding yourself,” he said.

Avengers: Twilight will be drawn by Daniel Acuña, a respected Marvel Comics artist. Previews of the comic, including the trailer from New York Comic Con, indicate a very gritty yet artistic style to highlight the future. The limited series also recently got a cover from legendary comic artist Alex Ross, which depicts a new outfit for Captain America. Other teases include the death of characters like Iron Man and Spider-Man, a grown-up Ms. Marvel, various Iron Man armors, and more.
