Marvel Comics has announced their next big event series and it alters everything about the history of the Marvel Universe.
After teasing the event for the last week, Marvel finally unveiled their upcoming Heroes Reborn event coming this May and it drastically alters the lives and history of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Welcome to a world where Tony Stark never built an Iron Man armor. Where Thor is a hard-drinking atheist who despises hammers. Where Wakanda is dismissed as a myth. And where Captain America was never found in the ice, because there were no Avengers to find him. Instead this world has always been protected by Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, the Squadron Supreme of America. And now the Squadron face an attack from some of their fiercest enemies, like Dr. Juggernaut, the Black Skull, the Silver Witch and Thanos with his Infinity Rings.
The only person who knows that something is wrong with history is Blade and he begins his quest to bring back the heroes and save the universe.
The series is written by current Avengers scribe Jason Aaron who said of the project; “Maybe the wildest story I’ve ever put on paper. I got to cut loose on this and release my inner comic-reared child in a really profound way, and together with a cadre of immensely imaginative artists, we built a world that I’m pretty confident in saying is quite unlike any version of the Marvel Universe you’ve seen before.”
Series artist Ed McGuinness said of recreating new looks for some of the characters in the story; “I’ve been having an absolute blast designing and drawing some new spins on old favorites Jason Aaron has brought to the table,” he said. “They are all with a purpose story wise which makes them really cool to get into from the art side of things. He may be the maddest scientist of all!”
Heroes Reborn starts this May from Marvel Comics.
