Going back to the Dark Knight’s early days in Gotham City: Batman and Robin, Dick Grayson, face down the coldest winter Gotham City has ever seen. A winter so cold that Mr. Freeze, Victor Fries, no longer needs his containment suit to survive; he is in an element where he can thrive. Robin empathizes with Mr. Freeze, all Freeze wants to do is save his wife, Nora–but Batman warns Robin not to give his empathy to Victor Fries. He’s a man who decided his own fate a long time ago and he deserves none of our warmth. And this winter… he will show his true wickedness and power. The powerhouse creative team of bestselling writer GERRY DUGGAN (X-Men, Deadpool, Arkham Manor) and MATTEO SCALERA (WHITE KNIGHT PRESENTS: HARLEY QUINN, Black Science) brings you Mr. Freeze’s most frigid story yet.

Batman: One Bad Day - Mr. Freeze #1

The X-Men and Captain Marvel team to take on the Brood!

The parasitic predators known as the Brood have returned to the Marvel Universe in a big way and their latest plan to infect the cosmos will be both Captain Marvel and the X-Men’s biggest nightmare!

Currently unfolding in the pages of Kelly Thompson’s run of Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers has taken to the stars to answer a distress call, only to confront horrors at the hands of her vengeful old enemies—the Brood! Luckily for Captain Marvel, she won’t be alone! Not only will the story arc guest-star various X-Men including Rogue, Gambit, and Wolverine, but Gerry Duggan’s ongoing X-Men title will connect with Captain Marvel starting in February’s X-Men #19. Joined by artist Stefano Caselli, the arc will see the X-Men realizing that despite their efforts, the Brood are still a major threat that needs to be put down quickly and permanently.

Titled “Revenge of the Brood” and “Lord of the Brood,” both arcs represent a reunion of sorts as Captain Marvel and the X-Men fought alongside each other in the original Brood Saga by Chris Claremont, Dave Cockrum and Paul Smith. The iconic adventure changed Captain Marvel forever as she unlocked her Binary form and saw the X-Men make some of their most intense sacrifices. This latest war with the Brood will pack the same emotional punch and once again, neither parties will walk away unscathed!

In “Lord of the Brood,” the X-Men get a distress call from deep space and find that the galaxy’s Brood problem is not as solved as they’d thought! When the X-Men’s close friend Broo became the Brood King, he gained the ability to control the savage alien race he was both a part of and so different from. Now he is experiencing his own nightmare scenario – the Brood are killing his friends, and there is nothing he can do to stop it! Rogue Brood factions have begun running wild, and it’s up to the X-Men to get to the bottom of why!

In “Revenge of the Brood,” Carol Danvers is on an X-press elevator to her own personal hell! And the Brood Empress is determined to ensure the Captain and all of her friends make it to their destination. Rescuing their team and getting out alive has always been the goal, but the odds are more deeply stacked against her team than Carol can even imagine. Overwhelmed and trapped in the Brood’s backyard, Captain Marvel and her team are forced to sacrifice one of their own. But the Brood let Carol through their clutches once before, and in so doing, created one of their worst enemies. They won’t make that mistake again.

To mark the occasion, upcoming issues of both series will have one giant connecting cover by Juan Frigeri that will run on Captain Marvel #46-48 and X-Men #19-21. This new Captain Marvel/X-Men epic will then conclude in Captain Marvel #49 where both stories will converge in a galaxy-changing finale!

Can Captain Marvel and the X-Men finally put an end to the galaxy’s greatest menace?

Madelyne Pryor and Ben Reilly Unleash their revenge in Dark Web!

Madelyne Pryor. Ben Reilly. As clones of two of Marvel’s greatest super heroes, they’ve gotten the short end of the stick time and time again. This December, they’ll join forces to take their ultimate revenge in Dark Web, an epic new Marvel Comics crossover involving Spider-Man, the X-Men, Venom, Ms. Marvel, and more! The saga will fan the embers of the iconic Inferno crossover and pack an emotional punch that pays off decades of Marvel storytelling. Fans have already gotten a sneak peek at what’s to come and now, it’s time to see just how things will continue to spiral downward for your favorite heroes come January!

Dark Web will unfold in the pages of Zeb Wells’ run on Amazing Spider-Man where he’ll be joined by artist Ed McGuinness for the duration of the story arc. In Amazing Spider-Man #17 and #18, Peter Parker is reeling from the opening battles of DARK WEB and now finds himself in Limbo. Peter not only has to find his way back home, but he has to do it in a truly hellish fashion. And who is shadowing him? As if the normal run-of-the-mill demons of Limbo weren’t enough… Spider-Man finds himself facing a small army of demonized versions of his rogues’ gallery! Can he make it home to stop Chasm and the Goblin Queen?! Featuring covers by John Romita Jr.!

Fighting his inner demons, Norman Osborn attempts a fresh start as a super hero in Chris Cantwell and Lan Medina’s thought-provoking Gold Goblin limited series. In Gold Goblin #3, Norman Osborn now finds himself face-to-face with his own sins after battling Chasm as Queen Goblin makes her terrifying return! Taurin Clarke provides the cover.

Mary Jane Watson and Felicia Hardy are trapped in Limbo and at the mercy of BELASCO THE SWORDSMAN in Jed MacKay and Vincenzo Carratu’s Mary Jane & Black Cat #3. As if that wasn’t bad enough, they’re also keeping secrets from one another! Somehow, MJ’s got powers and there’s a new (old) man in Felicia’s life – and if they don’t come clean with one another, they could be stuck in Limbo FOREVER! With a cover by J. Scott Campbell.

Dark Web will also leave a profound impact on Al Ewing, Ram V., and Bryan Hitch’s hit run on Venom. In Venom #14, Dylan Brock finds himself renewed and reinvigorated by his descent into the symbiote hive but Bedlam has come calling again – looking to finish what it started by killing Dylan and Venom once and for all. Luckily, an old friend is around to lend a crimson-clad hand… (And it isn’t Spider-Man!)

Caught in the explosive events unfolding across New York – including a face-to-face confrontation with Chasm himself – Kamala Khan finds herself teleported to Limbo, the domain of the Goblin Queen Madelyne Pryor in Dark Web: Ms. Marvel #2 by Sabir Pirzada and Francesco Mortarino and a cover by Marco Checchetto! As the city descends into chaos that threatens everything and everyone Kamala holds dear, she’s left with no choice but to call on Miles Morales for a helping hand! 

And Madelyne Pryor’s complex place within the Summers family results in a dramatic confrontation that will go down in X-Men history in Gerry Duggan and Rod Reis’ Dark Web: X-Men #3! When Jean Grey returned from the dead, Scott Summers left his wife and child to be with her. The fact that she was revealed to be a clone of Jean didn’t make her feel any better. Maybe the cold sting of revenge can? With a cover by Phil Noto.
