It is called Siege and the cast looks really interesting!

"There's Abigail Brand. The main difference [from the S.W.O.R.D. series] is that she's considerably older; 39 or so. There's Leah of Hel, who is basically a twin-blade warlock Red Sonya character in a full length emerald chainmail. Leah's best friend is fellow-demon sorceress Illyanna Rasputin, who rides an enormous metallic colossus into battle. The Endless Summers are about 1000 rejected clones from the realm of Baron Sinister, with ruby eyes and fine Jane-Austen-meets-Jack-Kirby outfits. There's Lady Katherine Bishop, who's basically Robin Hood and Maid Marian in one purple outfit. Oh, and a couple of UNITs trapped deep beneath the wall and being as sinister as ever. And Miss America, who remains Miss America Chavez.

"In terms of people I've never really touched, there's Nick Fury doing some fine flashback mentor role. Leonardo Da Vinci from S.H.I.E.L.D. in a form where he has four arms and four legs, and is known as the Vitruvian Man. There's Ben Grimm—now just Grimmwho has a very personal relationship with the Shield. Most of all, there's Kang, who is Abigail Brand's new second on the wall and has…something of a personality clash with Abigail. Honestly, I just love writing Kang. I mean both the character and the name. Just writing the word 'Kang!' is awesome. Kang! Kang! Kang!"

Best part? Kieron gets to write Miss America Chavez again! His take on her in Young Avengers were amazing.
