On the moon, the dead body of Uatu, The Watcher is discovered. His home destroyed. Looted of its valuable alien technology. His death sends shockwaves through the superhero community. The Watcher has borne witness to every event, every skeleton and every secret history of the Marvel Universe. Secrets that are now in the possession of the killer!

The manhunt is on as the Avengers, the X-Men, Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four and everyone in between desperately search for the Watcher’s killer – but with the killer in possession of all the skeletons in their closets, are they ready for their sins to be revealed?                                                                                                                                                                           
As they unearth the motive behind The Watcher’s murder, they’ll uncover a shocking truth that will shake the Marvel Universe to its core. What did The Watcher see that made him a target? And it’s only a matter of time before more bodies start popping up!

“This is a murder mystery on a Marvel Universe scale, so the suspects and motivations span all of space and time, and even the nature of existence itself!” says Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “And in fact, there are two possibilities: first, that the Watcher was killed because of some grudge or slight, or to gain possession of his secrets. Or, more menacingly, the Watcher was killed in order to prevent him from seeing what comes next—to prevent him from interceding as he has so many times before! Neither is a particularly comforting thought to the heroes of the Marvel Universe! Nor is the notion that the being who could murder a nigh-omnipotent, eternal figure such as the Watcher must rank among the most dangerous and powerful individuals in existence!”

You thought you knew the whole story? You we’re wrong! The next stage of the Marvel Universe begins in May’s blockbuster ORIGINAL SIN #1!

i dont know about this does sound interesting but i have a feeling the reveal of who shot the Watcher will be really underwhelming and stupid...

mctrinket - 4/3/2014, 3:47 PM what sort of gun would someone need to kill The Watcher? Wouldn't that sort of narrow it down?
TheFanOfEverything - 4/3/2014, 3:49 PM

Skottie Young is just the best. Fact.

I think Kurt Russell would have been great as Nick Fury.
Pedrito - 4/3/2014, 3:58 PM
I am skeptical about this, but that preview actually looks great. The art is solid too. And Punisher teaming up with Dr. Strange.. that's something you don't see everyday.
