Preview: More Sins. More Secrets. A First Look at Original Sin Annual #1!

This October, the devastating secrets of the Marvel Universe continue to spill out in the upcoming Original Sin Annual #1! Critically acclaimed writer Jason Latour and newcomer Enis Cisic expose the never before told history of Woodrow McCord – the enigmatic world protector who heroically gave his life to protect Earth during Original Sin.

Protecting the planet as the mysterious “man on the wall,” McCord answered to no man, shaping the course and history of the Marvel Universe in secret. Though he met his grim end, his legacy lives on through those who followed his path – Nick Fury and now Bucky Barnes, the Winter Soldier. Fighting battles too big for anyone on Earth, squaring off against aliens, gods and monsters. Not because he wanted to, but because no one else could.

In an interview with Marvel.com, Latour said:

The job is getting out there rattling cages, getting in the heads of people who want to harm Earth. Stopping trouble before it starts, by any means necessary. In the eyes of a lot of these more belligerent alien races, the Earth was ripe for the picking. It was a silent, shadow war and for quite a while McCord was the only soldier we had.

Witness the secret history of one of the Marvel Universe’s greatest architects, fighting a lonely, endless war. Protecting the human race in secret, did he lose his own humanity in the process? Be there when Latour and Cisic bring you the bombastic, untold sci-fi pulp story of Woodrow McCord, savior of the Marvel Universe in Original Sin Annual #1!

Meet the Jean Grey School’s Newest Member in Spider-Man & The X-Men #1 This December!

This December, meet the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning’s newest faculty member…Peter Parker?! That’s right, it doesn’t take an X-Gene to sculpt young minds from the hallowed halls of the JGS, and ol’ webhead is joining the payroll this December in Spider-Man & The X-Men #1! Rising star creators Elliott Kalan and Marco Failla settle Peter Parker into his role as the JGS’s newest Guidance Counselor. Keeping young mutants on the right path might be a reward unto itself, but Spidey has other plans.

In an interview with Marvel.com, writer Eliot Kalan said:

He’s there because Wolverine asked him to do it, though being a teacher isn’t the extent of the mission. Before Wolverine dies, he had a suspicion that something was amiss at the school and that one of the students wasn’t what they seemed. Only he didn’t know which student. It’s Spidey’s job to find the truth – though he can’t help but hope to also have a positive influence on the lives of the students.

Only the denizen of the Jean Grey School aren’t exactly down with their newest employee. Especially when he leads a group of the younger students into a confrontation with Sauron and Stegron, the Dinosaur Man! Time for the Wallcrawler to show his stuff as a hero and as a teacher. Be there when Spider-Man shepherds the next generation of mutants as they struggle to survive high school and a villain team-up 65 million years in the making when Spider-Man & The X-Men #1 swings into comic shops and onto digital devices this December!
