DEVIL's REIGN: The Kingpin Assembles A New Team Of THUNDERBOLTS In First Look At Issue #2 Of The Series
New York Mayor Wilson Fisk is setting his sights on the Big Apple's superheroes, and he's put together a brutal new team of Thunderbolts who will be targeting the likes of Spider-Man and Spider-Woman...
Marvel Comics recently shared the first details on Devil's Reign, a new event series launching this December from writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Marco Checchetto.
That series is set to follow The Kingpin on a vicious quest to rid the world of superheroes through any means necessary, and to enact his plan, he'll have an army of supervillains at his command to see it through. Consisting of Crossbones, Taskmaster, Typhoid Mary, Shocker, Whiplash, Rhino, and Kraven, this deadly new team of Thunderbolts will report for duty in Devil's Reign #2.
"Our Daredevil plan just kept getting bigger and bigger, to the point where it would clearly affect the Marvel Universe in huge ways,” Zdarsky explains. "Thankfully, Marvel recognized this as well and gave Marco and I the opportunity to tell the story on a massive stage with Devil's Reign! This is a proper Marvel event springing from the pages of Daredevil and I think all Marvel readers will love what’s coming!"
The impact of this story will also be felt elsewhere, including in the pages of Spider-Woman #18. Marvel Comics has also shared the cover for that, while writer Karla Pacheco and artist Pere Pérez are set to follow Jessica Drew after Mayor Wilson Fisk sets his sights on her as well. He'll do anything to bring her down, including going after her loved ones.
From the Fantastic Four to the X-Men, The Kingpin is set to bring his full criminal and political power to bear on all of Marvel’s superheroes, and we're expecting to have more to share on this one soon.
