Who Lives? Who Dies? Who Remains Inverted?


This December, the Earth-shattering finale to the biggest comic event of the year explodes into comic shops as heroes, villains and more collide in AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS #9 – the epic conclusion! Blockbuster writer Rick Remender along with artists Jim Cheung, Terry Dodson and Leinil Yu bring heroes and villains to the brink for the finale of Act III: New World Disorder – and not everyone will make it back!

Armies of heroes and villains wage war in the streets of Manhattan as the X-Men and their leader Apocalypse prepare to annihilate all of humanity. With the remaining Avengers twisted and corrupted by the Inversion, our only hope lies with the most despicable villains in the Marvel Universe. Led by the frail and vulnerable Steve Rogers, these villains are all that stands in the way of total obliteration.

To save everything, sacrifices will be made – and the lives of Avengers and X-Men alike will be torn asunder. An X-Man will meet their horrifying fate! An Avenger will make an appalling choice! An old foe must claim the mantle of his greatest enemy. And a new team of Uncanny Avengers will be born!

Submit to Inversion – Your First Look at AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS #5!


This November, the heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe stand on the edge of a knife, and the world faces annihilation in AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS #5! Blockbuster writer Rick Remender is joined by chart-topping artist Terry Dodson as Act II: Inversion gives rise to a new world DISORDER! Heroes will be broken, eyes will be opened, and a universe will tilt on its AXIS.

Splintered and alienated, the forces of Avengers and X-Men stand on opposing sides. The Red Skull has been released from his holding cell in Avengers Tower. Someone aided him. Someone who was present on Genosha. But whom? And why are the heroes and villains acting so strangely?

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. And in the name of survival of the fittest, the X-Men claim their new home.

Marvel Launching New ‘Secret Wars’ Event in 2015


New York Comic Con News:  At the New York Comic Con tonight Marvel Comics revealed its major “event” for 2015, a new year-long, Secret Wars written by Jonathan Hickman and drawn by Esad Ribic.  The new Secret Wars was announced on the 30th anniversary of the original 1984, year-long Secret Wars event that did for comic book crossovers what Jaws did for summer movie blockbusters.  The new Secret Wars will begin at the end of the current Avengers story arc, “Time Runs Out.”

Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort told USA Today: “The scope of it is about the biggest thing we’ve ever done or attempted to do. It’s may be not the best thing to say but I don’t know how we’ll top it a year later.”  USA Today reports that the new Secret Wars will be a company-wide event affecting the entire publishing side when it debuts next spring–and like the original Secret Wars, which had a tie-in with Mattel–the new Secret Wars already has merchandising deals in place with Hasbro, Gentle Giant, and Hot Topic.

Marvel also released a very interesting teaser painting by Alex Ross, which reflects some of the events and participants in the new Secret Wars.  Marvel fans will be scrutinizing this image closely since it includes new versions of Iron Man, Wasp, and Hawkeye, as well as Sam Wilson the new Captain America along with Steve Rogers, the old one.  There seems to be several incarnations of various Marvel characters including three Thors, including the new female Thor, who looks like she’s about to get in a donnybrook with the original God of Thunder.  Plus, is that Obnoxio the Clown in the upper right corner?  And the burning question, will the Beyonder be back?

Marvel clearly thinks that it is upping the ante on comic book crossovers with this one.  As Brevoort put it, “Our hope is that as seismic as the original Secret Wars was to the Marvel Universe and the readers, this new Secret Wars will be to the readers of today.  People are certainly going to be talking about it 30 years from now.”
