Marvel Comics on Tuesday announced that its new title, originally titled The Champions, will now be titled The Order.

Heroic Publishing currently publishes a titled named The Champions.

Here's how Marvel describes the book, which is written by Matt Fraction and drawn by Barry Kitson:

"Spinning out of Civil War, a new super hero team has been formed by Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man); one that embodies everything hešs fought for over the last year. Branded by Stark himself, The Order is the first team to launch as part of the Fifty-State Initiative. Culled from the best and the brightest America has to offer, these everyday super heroes are the First Super Hero Team of Tomorrow. This L.A.-based team will not only have to deal with a demanding boss in Stark, but also the challenges of being celebrities, scrutinized for their every move and constantly targeted by villains who don't realize that in California, the good guys always win!"

"The Order is a modern super-hero book, in terms of how it's been created and how it's managed, and, behind the scenes, in terms of how Barry and I are telling their stories," Fraction said. "But below the surface, everything about the team -- how it's run, who's on it, and what they can do -- follows a classical tradition by being modeled after the Greek pantheon of Gods... the first Order, if you will, of heroes. Inside and out, The Order is organized around the same principals that held together those twelve legends. Tony Stark sits on top, playing the role of Zeus. His girl Friday and the on-site leader of The Order is Pepper Potts, playing the symbolic role of Hera. And on and on, down through the ranks. All of our characters have a mythical, symbolic role they fulfill, along with their quite-literal new superhuman identities.

"The Greek gods were really kind of the original superhero team -- and if Barry Kitson and I were going to be launching a superhero team of our own, it seemed like following the order of the oldest and the best wasn't such a bad idea!"

The Order #1 will be in stores on July 18. Click on the thumbnails above for the first issue's cover and variant cover.
