COMICS: Which Classic X-MEN Villain Returns In UNCANNY AVENGERS #4? Find Out Here!
This week's Uncanny Avengers #4 looked ahead to three months from now in the Marvel Universe and things are clearly not going well for Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Which villain is responsible for their troubles? Hit the jump to find out! [WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD]
Writer Rick Remender has already brought back the Red Skull, and we know from future solicitations that both Apocalypse and Kang the Conquerer aren't too far behind! Well, in a flashforward to three months from now (not literally three months for US; we're talking about actual "time" in the Marvel Universe), we find out who is responsible for a Days of Future Past like Earth; Onslaught! However, this version of the villain (a character who once caused the apparent death of almost all of Marvel's major superheroes) is the same Red Skull who recently fused his brain with that of Charles Xavier. The final page of Uncanny Avengers #4 can be found below along with comments from Remender.
"As we were building the story we were looking for the escalation for the fourth arc, the story that takes place in the second year, and I wanted something recognizable that naturally fit with our plans. It was sitting right in front of me but I never saw it; editor Tom Brevoort pointed out to me that Onslaught was the perfect fit."
"From there about another hundred ideas bubbled up and it fit perfectly with the other plans that we had. It's going to be an entirely different thing than what we saw in the '90s, an entirely different character with an entirely different set of motives. I don't want to give much else away — I think people know how the original Onslaught came into being, and that it has a direct connection to Charles Xavier."
