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.

Review: Fantastic Four #29

Fantastic Four #29

The Fantastic Four find themselves in the middle of all of the King In Black’s business in Fantastic Four #29. Sue is spying on Johnny and his soulmate, Sky.

Generally, I think crossover issues kinda stink. Characters are thrust into some no-nonsense event, jobbing for someone else’s villain, and nothing that matters ever really happens. Here, as Reed and company are making sure everything is good with Valeria and the gang at the Forever Gate, the black symbiotic dragons of Knull, God of symbiotes, just start raining from the sky.

I’ll give Dan Slott a bit of credit in that I’m surprised at how much he can pull off with such a huge cast of characters in tow. He does make it work and give everyone their space. It’s not the FF is there’s no family drama and the entire Sue-Johnny-Sky situation reeks of typical FF drama. Oddly enough, it’s more interesting to me than when it just became a no-nonsense fight against symbiotic dragons that no one can harm or hurt.

The art was pretty good from Ze Carlos but I’m ready for them to return Reed to his more traditional look and away from looking like John Krasinski. We get it. We’re over it. Besides that, I do like his style, which reminds me a bit of a looser style Mike Wieringo. Also, he illustrates a killer Thing.

One thing you don’t normally see is a bunch of heroes just popping up but this issue had them all over in the backgrounds, which in a way isn’t the norm with event tie-ins. Usually, it’s a more secluded setting for whoever’s book it is and then it brings them in near the end of the main series. Sadly, I felt like the end twist in Fantastic Four #29 happened off-panel and it was a letdown. That said, if you are an event completist, you’ll not want to miss the Fantastic Four’s involvement in King In Black.
