Marvel Teases War of the Realms, House of X, Powers of X, Absolute Carnage and Something in December at C2E2

This weekend, Marvel unveiled its 2019 Publishing Slate to a hall of fans attending Marvel’s Next Big Thing panel during this year’s Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo. Hosted by Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski along with some of Marvel’s biggest creators, the panel recapped some of the weekend’s biggest Marvel Comics news and teased what’s next in the Marvel Universe – pointing to a yet-to-be-revealed story in December.

Since the convention’s opening on Friday, attendees have received thrilling new looks at Marvel’s world-shaking War of the Realms series, written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Young Gun Russell Dauterman; the deadly Absolute Carnage event, written by Donny Cates and drawn by Ryan Stegman; and the next monumental chapter for the X-Men with House of X and Powers of X, written by Jonathan Hickman and drawn by Young Gun Pepe Larraz and R.B. Silva respectively.

Each of these standalone series will introduce fans to groundbreaking new ideas and shocking implications for the Marvel Universe, setting the scene for Marvel’s most iconic and popular Super Heroes later this year.

Starting next month, get ready for some of the biggest stories ever in the pages of Marvel Comics!

This April, Marvel’s War of the Realms commences, featuring Marvel’s greatest heroes such as Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Black Panther, and Captain Marvel! The dark sorcerer Malekith wages a war that has spread from one otherworldly realm to the next, razing each one to the ground as his armies move from conquest to conquest. Now there’s only one realm left standing: ours.

This July, Marvel’s House of X and Powers of X will mark the next major milestone in X-Men history. Since their introduction by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby over 50 years ago, fans around the world have followed the extraordinary stories of the X-Men through seminal moments like Giant-Size X-Men, 1991’s X-Men #1, Age of Apocalypse, and New X-Men. Each of these moments introduced a new era for mutantkind – and starting this summer, the world will experience the next seminal moment in the history of the X-Men.

This August, the Marvel Universe will need to survive Absolute Carnage – and no one is safe. Beginning in Free Comic Book Day Spider-Man/Venom #1 (out May 5), Cletus Kasady is back, and he’s deadlier than ever. On a hunt for every Super Hero in the Marvel Universe who has worn a symbiote, Carnage has his eyes on his first victims…starting with some of our favorite Marvel heroes. Everyone is a target!

Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman Deliver Absolute Carnage

At C2E2 acclaimed writer Donny Cates announced Absolute Carnage – Marvel’s epic summer event! Beginning in Free Comic Book Day Spider-Man/Venom #1 (out May 5), the blockbuster event starts in August (although fans will see the threads reaching as far back as Amazing Spider-Man 252 with connections to almost every Venom and Carnage story since) and re-teams Cates with Venom’s Ryan Stegman and colorist Frank Martin for the deadliest story in the Marvel Universe!

Cates teased in the announcement video:

Cletus Kasady is back, and he is deadlier than he’s ever been. ABSOLUTE CARNAGE encompasses every single character who has ever worn a symbiote and every symbiote that has ever been, going all the way back to when Peter found the black suit. Going from there to Maximum Carnage to Venomized to everything…everyone is a target.

This summer, no super hero is safe…everyone is a target!
