Last year at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel teased that the Marvel Comics universe was about to change in a big way courtesy of writer Jonathan Hickman. And now as detail are being revealed, it seems that was no hyperbole.
Along with an artist Valerio Schiti, Marvel reveals the narrative is titled G.O.D.S. and says "the team will build a new Marvel mythology overflowing with daring concepts, intricate systems, and fascinating new characters, some of whom have been in action long before your favorite Marvel heroes."
Here's more from Hickman: "When I came back to Marvel a few years ago, I wrote two series bibles. The first was House of X and the other one was G.O.D.S. To say that I'm excited to finally be able to share this story with everyone is a massive understatement. G.O.D.S. takes place in its own special corner of the Marvel Universe — in the cracks that lie at the intersection of science and magic — and revisits some characters and concepts that we've reimagined for a more modern, continuity-driven audience."
Based on the trailer below, it seems that the series will prominently feature Dr. Stephen Strange. In the meantime, catch a preview in Free Comic Book Day: Avengers/X-Men #1out on May 6th.
