The Kingpin’s Thunderbolts Begin the Purge of Marvel’s Heroes in Devil’s Reign
The recently announced Marvel event Devil’s Reign launches this December with two exciting issues! The highly anticipated saga from writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Marco Checchetto will see Kingpin on a vicious quest to rid the world of super heroes through any means necessary, and he’ll have an army of super villains 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 and represent only the opening salvo of Kingpin’s plan to remake the Marvel Universe in his own image.
Devil’s Reign will also tie into some of your favorite ongoing series including December’s Spider-Woman #18 by series creative team, writer Karla Pacheco and artist Pere Pérez. Mayor Wilson Fisk is purging vigilantes from his city, and Spider-Woman is on his list! Fisk will do anything to bring her down, including going after her loved ones. It’s all on the line for Spider-Woman during DEVIL’S REIGN! Here’s Pacheco had to say about what’s come for Jessica Drew:
From the Fantastic Four to the X-men, be there when Kingpin brings his full criminal and political power to bear on all of Marvel’s super heroes. Stay tuned for more announcement about upcoming Devil’s Reign tie-in series including January’s Devil’s Reign: Villains for Hire!
