Kingpin’s War Against Superheroes Puts the Marvel Universe in Danger in New Devil’s Reign Titles

Beginning next month, Mayor Wilson Fisk will have all of Marvel’s heroes in his deadly grip in Devil’s Reign, an upcoming Marvel Comics crossover event spinning out of writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Marco Checchetto’s Eisner-nominated run on Daredevil! The all-star creators will bring their superb talents for high-stakes storytelling to the greater Marvel Universe in this far-reaching saga that sees Kingpin embark on a vicious quest to rid the world of every last Super Hero. The story continues in February along with exciting new tie-ins, limited series, and one-shots!

In Devil’s Reign #4, New York is under siege and Wilson Fisk has broken! Whatever shred of decency that may have been left of him is gone entirely and now, with an army of super villains at his command, Kingpin has set his gaze upon everyone the heroes of the Marvel Universe hold dear — but even the Kingpin is unaware of the magnitude of danger he has put the city, its citizens and even himself with his war against the city’s super heroes!

Current Spider-Man Ben Reilly will get in on the action in Devil’s Reign: Spider-Man #1 by writer Anthony Piper and artist Zé Carlos. The events of Devil’s Reign have put Spidey in an awful position and as if that weren’t enough, the newly returned Rose has Spidey in his crosshairs and wants to prove that he’s badder than his dad, Kingpin, ever was. Carlos Gómez provides the cover.

Writer Jed MacKay and Alessandro Cappuccio’s acclaimed Moon Knight saga will also be impacted by the crossover. Devil’s Reign will find Moon Knight indisposed but his mission must continue. In his absence, an erstwhile ally takes up the fight in Moon Knight #8, but will the mystery of Stained-Glass Scarlet prove to be too much for Hunter’s Moon, the Fist of Khonshu? Cory Smith provides the cover. And come March, MacKay will team up with artist Federico Sabbatini and in a special one-shot, Devil’s Reign: Moon Knight #1, depicting Moon Knight’s time as Kingpin’s prisoner after a vicious battle with the Thunderbolts. With a cover by Rod Reis.

And learn more about these other Devil’s Reign installments coming in February:

Daredevil: Woman Without Fear #2: Chip Zdarsky continues his redefining work on Elektra alongside artist Rafael De Latorre in Daredevil: Woman Without Fear #2 which will see Elektra pitted against one of Marvel’s most savage villains. She’s the greatest assassin in the Marvel Universe — but having recently taken up the mantle of Daredevil, she’s taken a vow to never take a life again. But that vow is about to be put to the ultimate test, as Kraven the Hunter has her dead in his sights…and, unlike Elektra, he has no reservations about killing. If anything, he likes it when his prey struggles. At least, he thinks he does. Featuring a cover by Chris Bachalo.

Devil’s Reign: X-Men #2Writer Gerry Duggan and artist Phil Noto continue to reveal Emma Frost’s deadliest secrets in Devil’s Reign: X-Men #2. Turns out attending Hellfire Club soirees was not the naughtiest thing the White Queen was up to in the time before she joined the X-Men… And the dirty deeds she did for Wilson Fisk are coming back to haunt her.

Devil’s Reign: Superior Four #2Otto Octavius irrevocably alters the multiverse in Zac Thompson and Davide Tinto’s Devil’s Reign: Superior Four #2. Now he must do everything he can to undo a paradox of his own creation before it undoes him. As Otto’s relentless assault on reality continues, the other Ottos grow weary of their reckless leader. Can the Superior Four set aside their egos to work together, or will they be lost to the multiverse forever? Featuring a cover by Ivan Shavrin.

Devil’s Reign: Villains for Hire #2Kingpin’s war against vigilantes takes a turn in Clay McLeod Chapman and artist Manuel Garcia’s Devil’s Reign: Villains for Hire #2. Wilson Fisk has laid out a proposition for the villains of the Marvel Universe: Join him or suffer the same fate as the heroes…or worse. Featuring a cover by Skan.

Luke Cage: City of Fire #3It’s a fight for the very soul of the city in Ho Che Anderson and Sean Damien Hill’s Luke Cage: City of Fire #3. As the city burns, the Regulators set their sights on an innocent child who’s unwittingly holding critical information. Luke Cage races to get to the girl first, which brings him face to face with Jo Rockhead, the lethal leader of the Regulators who has the power to turn people to stone. But when Luke finds out he and Rockhead have something in common, will his resolve waver? Featuring a cover by Taurin Clarke.

Check out the February covers now, as well as a complete Devil’s Reign event checklist, and be there when Kingpin’s rule begins this December!

No Marvel Hero is Safe from the Kingpin’s Rage in New Devil’s Reign Tie-Ins

Devil’s Reign, the upcoming Marvel event spinning out of writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Marco Checchetto’s Eisner-nominated run on Daredevil, kicks off in December. And come January 2022, all hell will break loose as Kingpin’s reign threatens every corner of the Marvel Universe, overtaking your favorite characters in multiple new tie-in series and one-shots.  This far-reaching saga will center around Kingpin as he embarks on a vicious quest to rid the world of every last super hero through any means necessary…

In Devil’s Reign #3, New York City stands at the brink of disaster as Mayor Wilson Fisk has at last reached a breaking point, with an army of super villains at his back, and a deputized crew of super villainous Thunderbolts on the streets and in every police station. Worse still, he’s put the Marvel Universe’s most powerful tools into (all six) hands of one of its most diabolical minds, unaware of the disaster that could befall the entire city as a result! As a gauntlet of super villains stand between Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man and Daredevil and liberating the heroes who have been captured by Fisk’s law enforcement, they’re ALL about to learn that the danger is closer than they ever thought possible.

In addition, Chip Zdarsky will continue his landmark Daredevil run in Daredevil: Woman Without Fear! With art by Rafael De Latorre, this limited series will star Elektra as Daredevil in a pulse-pounding chapter that spins directly out of the shocking revelations in the pages of Devil’s Reign! Featuring a cover by Chris Bachalo!

And check out these other exciting tie-ins coming in January:

Writer Gerry Duggan and artist Phil Noto reunite in Devil’s Reign: X-Men. Emma Frost has many skeletons in her closet, but only one of them is currently Mayor of New York City.

Or protect the secrets they share?

Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing, the writing duo behind the hit current series Kang the Conqueror, team up with artist Nico Leon in  Devil’s Reign: Winter Soldier. A power-mad Mayor Fisk has been gathering information on super heroes. How far will Bucky Barnes go to steal the file on his own shadowy, half-remembered past as the Winter Soldier? And what horrible revelation awaits him if he can get past the Kingpin? Some secrets are meant to stay buried. And some doors are meant to stay closed. Featuring a cover by Felipe Massafera.

Meet Kingpin’s terrifying new team of villains in writer Clay McLeod Chapman and artist Manuel Garcia’s Devil’s Reign: Villains for Hire. New York City is on a razor’s edge, and there’s only one force fighting for the rule of law in the chaos: Wilson Fisk’s Thunderbolts! Featuring a cover by Skan.

Make way for a shocking twist on the Fantastic Four in Zac Thompson and Davide Tinto’s Devil’s Reign: Superior Four. Otto Octavius has acquired a taste for the infinite. Empowered by Wilson Fisk, Doctor Octopus faces a tantalizing, unprecedented opportunity to scour the Multiverse, amassing an army of…himself. An army to march on our reality, proving Otto’s supremacy — and it all begins with his Superior Four! Ivan Shavrin provides the cover art.

Kingpin turns up the heat in Luke Cage: City of Fire #2 by Ho Che Anderson and Ray-Anthony Height. Luke Cage and Daredevil are on a dangerous journey across New York City to deliver someone to a safe house, but to do so, they must first get through the lethal Regulators, angry mobs and the mayor himself, Wilson Fisk!

Luke Cage Returns in City of Fire

Change is coming — and it starts here. This October, Marvel brings readers a new hard-hitting story, Luke Cage: City of Fire. The three-issue series explores the role Luke Cage has grown into in Harlem and the broader Marvel Universe.

In the new series, a shadowy rogue group named the Regulators are terrorizing ordinary citizens in New York City, and Luke Cage is called to action when a Black man in his community is murdered by a crooked police officer. Cage quickly crosses paths with Daredevil, who is determined to bring down the Regulators no matter the cost, but Mayor Fisk is equally determined to use them to tighten his grip on the city. There is unrest in the streets, and it’s up to Cage to keep the city from going up in flames.

Joined by an exciting lineup of artists including Farid Karami on #1, Ray-Anthony Height on #2, and Sean Damien Hill on #3, celebrated creator Ho Che Anderson makes his Marvel debut with a story that will significantly impact Luke Cage’s role within the Marvel Universe forever.
