Agatha Harkness’ Contest of Chaos corrupts Marvel’s Heroes!

Mystical manipulator Agatha Harkness is conjuring up a Contest of Chaos and some of Marvel’s biggest heroes, including A-Listers, fan favorites, and rising new stars, will be forced to compete!

Crafted by writer Stephanie Phillips, Contest of Chaos will be an interconnected saga told across eight thrilling Annuals starting in August. Featuring the writing and art of various all-star industry talent, each Contest of Chaos Annual will spotlight an intense showdown between two characters as the forces of chaos compel them to go head-to-head! Throughout the eight over-sized issues, Phillips and artist Alberto Foche will reveal more and more of Agatha’s twisted scheme in bonus backup stories.

Recently rejuvenated and more powerful than ever, Agatha has more stake in the future of the Marvel Universe than ever before, and readers and characters alike are about to see just how committed she is to reshaping Marvel magic! The drama kicks off in next month’s Scarlet Witch Annual #1, a Contest of Chaos prelude issue, by Scarlet Witch writer Steve Orlando and artist Carlos Nieto. After stealing something dark and dangerous from her former pupil, Agatha unleashes her corruption on various unsuspecting heroes!

Here are the matchups fans can look forward to in the coming months:


Writer Stephanie Phillips kicks off the Contest of Chaos alongside artist Alberto Foche! First on Agatha’s list is Spider-Man, whose regular day is turned upside down when he involuntarily walks through a portal to a remote, magical city…and is attacked by Wolverine!


Writer Jason Loo and artist David Cutler bring you a clash of titans you won’t want to miss! When the forces of chaos move upon our heroes, the past, present and future come crashing in on them – and only one can emerge victorious! The might of human ingenuity versus the power of the natural universe.


Writer Zac Gorman and artist Alan Robinson bring the Fantastic Four into the mayhem when the Human Torch is pitted against Johnny Blaze! It’s flame versus hellfire when the two heroes face off – but who will emerge victorious?!


Current Moon Knight scribe and Taegukgi co-creator Jed MacKay teams up with acclaimed artist Creees Lee for a power-packed showdown! When the champion of a god battles a godlike champion, who will win? The Fist of Khonshu faces off against Tiger Division’s fearless leader!


Ghost-Spider and White Fox get caught in Agatha Harkness’ tangled web in this roller coaster of a rumble by writer Karla Pacheco and artist Rosi Kämpe! Gwen Stacy technically isn’t even supposed to be in this universe, and now she’s cutting chem lab to go to…a theme park?! Wait, something doesn’t feel right here – and why is this masked fox attacking her?


When the forces of chaos call upon Venom and Deadpool, it becomes an issue of family – and whose deserves to win the ultimate prize. It’s symbiote might vs. frankly awesome assassin skills in an epic showdown you won’t want to miss by current Deadpool scribe Alyssa Wong and artist Sergio Dávila!


The leader of the X-Men and the leader of the Avengers size each other up in this epic brawl from writer Paul Allor and Alessandro Miracolo! Drawn to the Alaskan wilderness by magic neither of them understand, Captain Marvel and Cyclops duke it out! Agatha Harkness’ plan for the Darkhold is slowly taking shape…but will it come at the expense of two of the world’s greatest heroes?! And what can an energy-blasting mutant do against a woman who can absorb the energy of the sun?!


Stephanie Phillips and Alberto Foche bring the Contest of Chaos to a fantastical finish as the fate of Marvel magic is decided! When Agatha pits the Avengers against the winners of the previous chaos battles, they realize they must choose between saving their friends and stopping the creation of the new Darkhold. But their choice may have consequences that no one – not even Agatha – could have imagined.

Review: New Fantastic Four #1

New Fantastic Four #1

Marvel has been going “retro” lately exploring concepts, characters, and teams of the past. In some cases, the stories have been just entertaining nostalgia. In others, they’ve added to the previous experience and characters. New Fantastic Four #1 kicks off the latest example of that. We return to the day when Spider-Man, Hulk, Ghost Rider, and Wolverine teamed up. Why? I honestly don’t remember, it was such a long time ago and I was an FF reader then so didn’t really care. The debut issue doesn’t really remind us why either, instead dropping the reader right into the action as the team must take on a demonic villain.

Peter David returns to the team and for the most part, the comic feels like a retro adventure. There’s something both good and bad about that. The issue would have generally felt at home during the original run as the start of a new arc but one that doesn’t feel like it’s going to deliver much. As I said, some of these types of series have added to the history and characters but so far, this debut just feels like a comic. That’s not necessarily bad and while the comic has its entertaining moments, it also isn’t enough to really excite.

Joining David is Alan Robinson on art. With color by Mike Spicer and lettering by Joe Caramagna, the comic sticks to its classic feel in look as well. Beyond the printing and coloring being modern, the art style feels like it’d fit in well with the past iterations. There’s some fun and funny moments but the comic lacks that punch that one might hope for to excite.

New Fantastic Four #1 isn’t bad but it also doesn’t excite. The best moment involves Spider-Man and the Vulture and then a later joke involving the Vulture. It sets things up nicely but doesn’t do it in a way that you have to read the next issue. It sadly feels like a forgettable spin-off miniseries or a short story arc where you just wait for the next bit thing. Nostalgia is great but we need a bit more than this.

It’s the New Fantastic Four from Peter David and Alan Robinson

In 1991’s Fantastic Four #347, comic book legends Walter Simonson and Arthur Adams introduced an unforgettable iteration of Marvel’s premier Super Hero team when they teamed up Wolverine, Spider-Man, Ghost Rider, and Hulk as the New Fantastic Four. Though their time as the FF was brief, this unlikely group of heroes left a big impact, and now fans will get to return to this special moment in Marvel history in a new limited series kicking off in May. Written by comics great Peter David and featuring the Marvel Comics debut of artist Alan Robinson, New Fantastic Four will be set shortly after the events of the fan-favorite group’s first appearance, taking readers back to a classic era with a brand-new tale.

Wolverine, Hulk (AKA Joe Fixit), Ghost Rider and Spider-Man have reunited to investigate a surge of violence in Las Vegas. And with demonic masterminds pulling the strings, they’re going to need some extra help… This all-new adventure will feature surprise guest stars aplenty, including the original FF and a series of mystery villains that you’ll never see coming!

Check out Nick Bradshaw’s wraparound cover below featuring the iconic lineup alongside their original counterparts and brace yourself for a wild ride when New Fantastic Four hits stands on May 25.
