Part of MarvelComics' MarvelNOW initiative, '''Uncanny Avengers''' is a team book set in the MarvelUniverse that features a mix of characters from two of Marvel's biggest franchises; Comicbook/TheAvengers and the Comicbook/XMen.

Launched in the wake of the ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'' [[CrisisCrossover crossover]], the book follows the efforts of ComicBook/CaptainAmerica to assemble a team of both humans and X-Men in order to help improve the public perception of Mutants. In addition to Captain America, the team features ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}, [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]], Havok, ComicBook/TheWasp, Rogue, ComicBook/ScarletWitch, ComicBook/WonderMan, and Sunfire.

The title is written by Rick Remender, and featured art from John Cassaday in its first arc. John Cassaday was replaced by Daniel Acuna starting with the second arc.

The title lasted for 25 issues (December, 2012-December, 2014). The title is being relaunched following the events of ''Comicbook/{{AXIS}}'', with [[ComicBook/TheFalcon the new Captain America]], ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}}, ComicBook/TheVision, Sabretooth, and Brother Voodoo joining the cast.

!!Tropes used in ''Uncanny Avengers'' include:

* ActualPacifist: Wonder Man
* TheAlcoholic: Sunfire
* ApocalypseHow: [[spoiler:Exitar the Executioner succeeds in destroying the Earth and everyone on at the time in Issue #17.]]
* TheAtoner: Wanda for her role in ''ComicBook/HouseOfM'' and Sunfire for his FaceHeelTurn around the time of ''Messiah Complex''.
* AuthorFilibuster: Havok in issue #5 and Wanda in issue #9 most prominently about the existence of a mutant culture and intersectionality, but Remender has been using his characters to quote lines he's said himself in interviews since issue one of this book.
* BadFuture: One is teased in the fourth issue, apparently caused by [[spoiler:Red Skull merging with {{Onslaught}}]].
** The Apocalypse Twins themselves come from one where [[spoiler: Red Skull revealed events from the Dark Angel Saga that led to mutant concentration camps.]]
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:The Twins blow-up the earth and get Planet X, however it gets undone by issues 20 & 21.]]
* [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace Sunfire Can Breathe In Space]]
* BigBad: '''Red Skull'''. Virtually everyone hates this man including the Unity Squad, the Apocalypse Twins, and the X-Men (Magneto and Cyclops group included), and he's the cause of all the problems in the series so far, either directly or indirectly. It's surprising that none of them have put off their differences long enough to work together and take him down...
** BigBadEnsemble: [[spoiler: As of issue 21, Kang has predictably betrayed Earth's heroes in a bid to take [[PhysicalGod Exitar's]] power and become conqueror of the universe.]]
* BreakingTheFellowship: Nine issues in and they're already splitting up with some help from the Apocalypse twins.
* BreakThemByTalking: Daken to Wolverine and the Twins to Wanda.
* BrokenAesop: This is the first real attempt at a team book that has the Avengers forming an alliance with the X-Men in the name of promoting diversity and tolerance for the mutant condition -- and in some eyes, it's fallen flat on its ass. Issue #5 has Havok give a speech that could be taken to say, "I want to be seen as more than just 'that mutant'"; however, given the wording, many have [[http://comicsalliance.com/uncanny-avengers-5-rick-remender-identity-politics-mutants/ taken it as saying]], "Merely adopting a cultural identifier such as 'mutant' is a divisive gesture that separates us from others." It's not helped by [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/4383613.html#cutid1 Issue #9]], which features such greatest hits as "Members of the majority don't understand why minority puts so much stock in cultural identity" and "Being born with a certain condition isn't a ''real'' cultural identity."
** Heroes shouldn't kill and giving into revenge can cause you to become a monster. Considering the "you're as bad as him" moment was in response to [[spoiler:Magneto, a Holocaust survivor and person who takes pride in being a mutant, killing the Red Skull, a literal Nazi who was running a mutant concentration camp where he had imprisoned Magneto]] it looks more than a little tone deaf.
* CaughtOnTape: Sabertooth apparently taped Wolverine killing Daken and Red Skull made copies, with intent on showing it everywhere.
* TheChessmaster: Kang and his various alternate selves. The things you can plan for when you can travel through time...
* CompellingVoice: The Red Skull's henchman Honest John is an incredibly powerful variant of this. Not only can he make people do the things he says, but to make extra sure his victims don't rebel he also appears to them in the form they're most likely to trust (thus, he looks different to every person).
* CurbstompBattle: Thor vs Uriel. [[spoiler: Uriel didn't stand a chance.]]
* DirtyCoward: Honest John has no problem with manipulating others to wipe out mutants, but when Red Skull orders him to kill one himself, he balks at the idea.
* DividedWeFall: The Apocalypse Twins goal against the Avengers Unity Squad. [[spoiler: It didn't take much to get to the BreakingTheFellowship moment.]]
** AHouseDivided: Even when not actively fighting against each other, former X-Men side with their own while the Avengers do the same, hiding secrets from one another and such that are important.
** WeAreStrugglingTogether: There's a reason why X-Men and Avengers don't usually work together in long-term collaborations and it's shown here. Even though Havok is classified as the team leader, Captain America calls the shots most of the time and leaves him as little more than a figure head. When it comes to threats they handle things differently as well, with Wolverine doing what needs to be done, including executing them, while the Avengers don't condone it and Wasp flat-out refusing to work with him.
*** Somewhat subverted. While Wolverine is more traditionally associated with the X-Men, he has been an Avenger for a very long time. Captain America's stance on Wolverine's killing seems to vary wildly from moment to moment based on the needs of the story, a fact that he even somewhat acknowledges when he admits he didn't react properly. Thor also tends to side with the X-Men over his fellow Avengers, with Havok doing the opposite.
* EarthShatteringKaboom: [[spoiler:Earth is destroyed in the #17 Issue.]]
* EmbarrassingNickname: Sunfire a.k.a "Hot Sake", given to him by the people of Japan according to Daken.
* EqualOpportunityEvil: RedSkull, of all people, has expanded his organization to include mutant-haters of all races and creeds. He himself is still as much a bigot as ever, though, so this is simply PragmaticVillainy.
* EvilCostumeSwitch: {{ComicBook/Daken}}, Banshee, and TheSentry after they join the Apocalypse Twins' Horsemen of Death. Grim Reaper gets a snazzy new outfit too, but he's worn black since the beginning.
* {{Expy}}: Mzee is a very lazy one from the Juggernaut.
* EyeScream
** Daken impales Woverine through the eyes with his claws...from behind.
** Uriel blinds Eimin to avoid having her killed in a SadisticChoice.
* FinalSolution: Red Skull's plans for mutants.
* FreudianExcuse: All of the S-Men's lives were ruined by mutants in some way; one of them watched as his entire village was massacred by the Acolytes, for instance.
* GodzillaThreshold: Thor decides to team up with Kang and his team of hand-picked heroes to undo the damage the Apocalypse Twins have done by traveling back in time. Havok, Wasp, and Beast do so as well.
* HeadbuttingHeroes: Rogue and Scarlet Witch are not fond of one another most of the time, given one [[ComicBook/HouseOfM wiped out a species with a sentence fragment]] and the other was dating her father.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Most of the Mutant members of the team, thanks to the actions of the Phoenix Five.
* InformedWrongness: Magneto is lambasted for trying to kill the Red Skull. As in a clone of the unrepentant Nazi war-criminal and mass-murdering bastard, the Red Skull. Never mind that Magneto was just tortured by one of his flunkies, or that the Skull violated his best friend's corpse, or that he's set up all-new concentration camps, apparently killing him is a no-no (well, it does release Onslaught again, but Magneto had no way of knowing that).
* LateArrivalSpoiler: The identities of the team's final three members was initially kept secret, but were revealed to be Wonder Man, Wasp, and Sunfire by the cover to issue #5.
* LivingBattery: Wonder Man
* MonochromeCasting: A complaint about the initial line-up of the team, and one which Remender himself jokingly acknowledged by calling the team "Crackerfest 2012" at Comic Con. [[TokenMinority Possibly the reason behind Sunfire's inclusion]].
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone
** After being freed from Red Skull's influence in Issue #4, a lot of people have this reaction since they were being used as a part of his FinalSolution on the mutants.
** Wolverine gets one when he finds out that his killing of Daken had been videotaped and will be spread around. This increases anti-mutant hysteria as mutants become depicted as killers of their own children and so a bad future begins...
* NeverTrustATrailer: The solicitation for issue # 13 promised that the Sentry would kill an Avenger, a scene that appears nowhere in the actual comic.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero
** Thor enchanting that Axe to kill Apocalypse [[spoiler:came back to bite the world when the Twins used it to gather the Life and Death Seeds, dooming the earth to be destroyed.]]
** Wanda summoning all the mutants on Earth. [[spoiler:She thought she was betraying them, but the twins planned accordingly and she did exactly what they needed her to do.]]
** Magneto [[spoiler: killing the Red Skull creates the ''Red Onslaught''.]]
* NobleBigot: Sentry. He doesn't hold Thor being responsible for his death against him and unlike the other Horsemen, is quite fixated on protecting mankind from outside threats (unfortunately, mutants count). Best displayed when he [[spoiler:helps Rogue delay the Celestial Executioner long enough for Thor to slay it and then volunteering to take its corpse into deep space so that it can dissolve safely.]]
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: The Red Skull, naturally. Though he's focusing on mutants, he still makes it clear he's an all around racist and sexist bigot.
* PoorCommunicationKills: At the climax of the "Ragnarok Now" arc, [[spoiler: Rogue kills Scarlet Witch for betraying the Avengers, without realizing that Wanda had only feigned defection, and was actually planning to take down the Apocalypse Twins herself. Not that it mattered since things went JustAsPlanned by them]].
* StatusQuoIsGod: After several years of being able to control her powers just fine, Rogue goes back to her usual inability to touch people.
* SuperTeam
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Just about every mission has come down to this so far.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Sunfire
* VillainTeamUp and CompositeCharacter: In an overlapping example, all of the antagonists combine elements of Avengers and X-Men villains, such as the Red Skull with Xavier's telepathy becoming [[spoiler: a new Onslaught]] or Kang raising the twin heirs of Apocalypse, who in turn create a team that's a cross between X-Men and Avengers [[LegionOfDoom Legions of Doom]] the Horsemen of Apocalypse (Apocalypse's henchmen) and the Legion of the Unliving (occasional Kang/Immortus henchmen).
* WellIntentionedExtremist: The twins' ultimate goal is to separate the mutants from humans to stop from the BadFuture caused by Red Skull. [[spoiler:Which they intended to enforce by setting the Earth up to be destroyed after they got all the mutants on the Ark. Really it could be seen as simple revenge against Kang, as there is no longer an Earth for him to conquer.]]
* WestCoastTeam: Sort of. The team still operates in New York, but they're stationed in Avengers Mansion rather than Stark Tower, where the main Avengers team resides.
* WolverinePublicity: In addition to this book, Captain America is in three other Avengers titles, while Thor is in two. TropeNamer Wolverine is also a member of another Avengers team as well as the X-Men. All three of them also have solo books.
** [[TheFalcon Sam Wilson]] joins the cast following the events of ''Comicbook/{{AXIS}}'', making this the ''fourth'' team he's been added to since his movie debut in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''.
* WorldSundering: The twins' ultimate goal, to create a world for mutants to stop their persecution. [[spoiler:And then destroy the earth.]]
* YouAreTooLate: Happens twice in the same comic. The cavalry in the form of Rogue and Sunfire charge in to stop Wonderman and Scarlet Witch from casting a spell that'll bring a mutant army, but Daken and Grim Reaper end up skunking them. When Rogue finally gets close enough to gut Wanda, it's too little and late to stop the spell from finishing. Then Wolverine charges in, he manages to save Sunfire from Daken but he's too late to stop Rogue killing Wanda and too late to stop the Grim Reaper from killing Rogue in return. BigDamnHeroes failure.
