Heroes Reborn: Hyperion and the Imperial Guard #1

Enter a Marvel Universe Without the Avengers as Marvel Reveals the Heroes Reborn Titles

The Marvel Universe has been reborn! From mastermind creators Jason Aaron and Ed McGuiness comes Heroes Reborn #1, a bold new vision of the world you knew. Spinning out of their epic work on Avengers, HEROES REBORN will answer the question of what the Marvel Universe would look like if the Avengers never assembled. The exciting —and unsettling — ripple effect the Avenger’s absence has on the rest of the Marvel Universe will be explored in a series of one-shots starting in May. These essential tie-ins will reveal the history behind the new reality of your favorite heroes AND lay the groundwork for its’ unpredictable future.

At the center of the grand tapestry that is Heroes Reborn is Hyperion. The teenage Hyperion’s cosmic quests with his Shi’ar friends near their end, but none of the young heroes are ready to say farewell. A quick mission in the Negative Zone sounds like the perfect coda to a storied fellowship…but what awaits Hyperion, Gladiator and the rest is horror and agony beyond their wildest nightmares!

A the thought-provoking series tackles the mystery behind Peter Parker’s new life. Peter’s the biggest Hyperion fan in the world, and he also just happens to be chummy with his favorite hero thanks to a photography gig at the Daily Bugle! SURELY, nothing can go wrong, with his camera (and him) in the heart of the action… Right?

What does this era have in store for mutants? Years ago, Magneto and Professor X led Earth’s mutants in a final push for independence against the Squadron Supreme of America. What followed was the Squadron’s Mutant Massacre, a violent rebuttal that left mutantkind forever wounded, and Xavier dead…or so Magneto thought. Years later, Magneto discovers Xavier clinging to life in the astral plane and gathers his allies for a first-of-its-kind rescue mission to restore hope for mutantkind before it’s too late.

Without the Avengers, Marvel’s brightest young heroes have grown up with different inspirations. The Squadron Supreme of America have taken root in the hearts and minds of all, but none more so than a trio of youthful champions who call themselves the Young Squadron! Kid Spectrum (Sam Alexander), Girl Power (Kamala Khan) and the all-new Falcon (Miles Morales) are here to here to defend the world against all threats…or are they?

And finally, there’s a new team of villains on the loose and you won’t believe who’s a part of it. Natasha Romanov, Clint Barton, Scott Lang, and Victor Creed lead an assault on the Squadron. After the Civil War that split the Squadron Supreme in half, Nighthawk formed his own Squadron in Europe. But not all of Europe is okay with it. Baron Zemo has put together his own team to take them down and the Squadron doesn’t stand a chance.

Welcome to the world of Heroes Reborn. Immerse yourself in this compelling new age in the Marvel Universe when it begins in May.
