Mutantkind Soars in the New X-Corp Series

The X-Book every fan has been waiting for is finally here! X-Corp, written by Tini Howard and drawn by Alberto Foche will hit stands this May. Taking Jonathan Hickman’s masterplan for mutantkind to the next level, the series will premiere a brand-new group of X-Men that will prove once and for all that mutantkind means business!

The deals have been made. Mutantkind is safe on Krakoa. As the Reign of X continues, what are the wants of the mutants who have everything? Leading the charge is X-CORPORATION, headed by CXOs Monet St. Croix and Warren Worthington, a duo as cutthroat and ruthless in the boardroom as they are on a battlefield. But X-Corp needs more than just its figureheads. As Monet sets out to staff their team with some of the brightest and most deviant minds in mutantkind, Warren finds himself in a tense confrontation with one of Krakoa’s first allies who wants to know the truth: on Angel’s wings, will X-Corp crash or soar? 

Grab hold as X-Corp introduces new concepts that will revolutionize the Marvel Universe as we know it when it arrives this May with colors by Sunny Gho and a cover by David Aja!

Fear the Man-Thing in April with Spider-Man: Curse of the Man-Thing

Announced last month, Marvel is honoring the 50th anniversary of Man-Thing with a new series. Starting in March with Avengers: Cure of the Man-Thing #1, the three-part Marvel Universe-spanning event will continue in April with Spider-Man: Curse of the Man-Thing #1. In this installment, critically acclaimed writer Steve Orlando (Martian ManhunterBatmanWonder Woman) will be joined by artist Alberto Foche who makes his Marvel Comics debut with an unforgettable tale. The first issue features a cover by Daniel Acuña with a variant by Nick Bradshaw.

Man-Thing’s supernatural abilities have been pirated thanks to the new Marvel villain, Harrower, a zealot intent on clearing humanity off the board so a new species can get a shot at the top. The world burns and fear is the accelerant! Meanwhile, Spider-Man races across New York desperate to avert disaster and find the one man that just might be able to get through to Man-Thing…his former colleague Curt Connors, A.K.A. The Lizard! But deep within the Man-Thing’s psyche, it’s Spider-Man that discovers something he never expected: a devilish secret, and a doctor seeking redemption.

Since his creation by Stan Lee, Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway, and Gray Morrow in 1971’s Savage Tales #1, the misunderstood swamp monster has taught readers the true meaning of fear in thought-provoking tales by legendary creators such as Steve Gerber and R.L. Stine. Prepare to burn at the Man-Thing’s touch once again when Spider-Man Cure of the Man-Thing #1 hits stands this April.

FINAL ISSUE!

DAN DARE, the alien warrior princess AU TAWEEN, DIGBY and PROFESSOR PEABODY have successfully boarded the mysterious TREEN ship that had invaded the Sol system. From his moon base prison, THE MEKON hacked into the Treen ship and released an incredibly virulent Treen computer virus that not only infected the ship’s computer systems but also somehow infected the alien crew itself.

Unfortunately, the virus also attacked Dan and the others.

Dangerously sick, it was only the timely intervention of The Mekon that saved their lives when he engineered a cure for the computer virus. However, after she had recovered and come face-to-face with The Mekon, Au Taween went berserk, snatched a guard’s gun and attempted to shoot him. Dan stepped between them and attempted to protect The Mekon, just as Au Taween prepared to fire…

It is a golden time for Earth and the Sol Alliance. Peace reigns supreme. The MEKON, perhaps mankind’s greatest enemy, has finally been vanquished and is undergoing behavioral treatment in a maximum-security prison built on the Moon.

Yet the one man responsible for the capture of the Mekon, the legendary space pilot DAN DARE, languishes in a prison of his own making. With no foe to fight, battle to win or day to be saved, Dan finds himself shackled by the chains of normality and boredom. In a silent prayer, Dan begs the universe to give him a reason to take flight again to the stars.

And his prayers have seemingly been answered.

From an uncharted sector of the galaxy an ancient spaceship of unknown origin and purpose has arrived, broadcasting a strange, un-decipherable signal – and stated its intent by destroying one of the moons of Saturn in a colossal show of strength and firepower…
