Narrowly escaping with their lives, Spider-Man and Nova are enlisted by Steve Rogers for a daring mission that could determine the fate of us all. The new Sorceress Supreme finally gains her revenge against the benevolent Doctor Doom. The Superior Iron Man battles Daredevil for the fate of an Extremis infected San Francisco.

This October, it all comes crashing down. Today, Marvel is proud to present your first look inside AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS #3, the next blockbuster chapter in the premier comics event of the fall. Superstar creators Rick Remender and Leinil Yu present your first look at the apocalyptic conclusion to Act I: The Red Supremacy as teams splinter, hearts are broken, and the fragile alliance of A and X shatters once more!

Though they now stand united against a common foe, their fragile alliance is not enough to stem the darkness. Coupled with the powers of Charles Xavier, the Red Skull’s terror knows no bounds. Battered and broken, the few surviving heroes must put their faith in unlikely allies, and give rise to the most vile syndicate known to man. Can the Red Skull be defeated? And at what cost? Would you destroy the Red Skull if it meant losing the very last piece of Charles Xavier?

As one of the last remaining heroes, the Scarlet Witch is forced to join forces with Dr. Doom – the man who twisted and abused her power to cause M-Day. If she can’t, she’ll have to watch those she loves most die. And a twist of fate will return one of the Marvel Universe’s greatest villains from beyond.

The world as we know it is gone. The Inversion is here. Don’t miss AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS #3 on sale in October!

Captain Apollo Death Revealed in ‘BSG’ Continuity

29672BSGDOA01-COV-A-Mayhew_LG[1]

Dynamite Entertainment has announced a new miniseries that will chronicle the death of Captain Apollo in the original Battlestar Galactica series continuity, launching in December.

The series will be written by Dan Abnett (Guardians of the Galaxy, Nova, The Legion), with art by Dietrich Smith (Army of Darkness, Battlestar Galactica), and covers by Smith, Livio Ramondelli, Mike Mayhew, and a subscription variant by Ardian Syaf.

Captain Apollo was the central character of the original 1978 Battlestar Galacticaseries, but after it ended in 1979, Apollo did not return for the sequel series Galactica 1980, which was set several years in the future.  It was implied in the dialog that the hero starfighter pilot had died in the intervening years, but his fate was never overtly detailed.  This series will now fill in those gaps.
