10.13.2017 - Frenemies Are Brought Together in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #23!

The Merc with the Mouth teams up with the web-crawler for Marvel Legacy!
                                                                                                              
New York, NY—October 13, 2017—The tables have turned. No longer an Avenger, Deadpool is living a life of crime. There’s only one super hero who can guide him to the right path and that’s…Spider-Man?! That’s the Marvel Legacy story that will begin in November, when Robbie Thompson (Doctor Strange and the Sorcerer’s Supreme) teams with artist Chris Bachalo for SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #23.

The Merc with the Mouth and the webslinger may have their differences, but they’ve got one thing in common: they’re both at odds with each other. And despite Spider-Man’s best efforts, Deadpool is back to his old ways – he’s become an arms dealer in the absence of S.H.I.E.L.D. 

But Spider-Man determined to bring his frenemy back to the right side of the law. And when a familiar villain from Spider-Man’s past makes an appearance, the two super heroes have no choice but to team up to save the world!

SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #23 arrives in comic shops this November!

10.13.2017 - Jen Walters Faces Her Biggest Battle Yet in SHE-HULK #159!

It’s Jen vs The Leader!
The once-green (now gray) goliath otherwise known as Jen Walters is reclaiming her name in Marvel Legacy – starting in SHE-HULK #159! And series writer Mariko Tamaki is being joined by new series artist Jahnoy Lindsay to blast off this Legacy run.

Since Bruce Banner’s death, Jen has been going through her own issues as she attempts to get used to being Hulk again and regain control of her life. Now, she’ll face the classic Hulk villain The Leader…who is more obsessed with Jen’s Hulk persona than ever before, now that Jen has been changed by her previous adventures.

The Leader’s goal is simple--Kill Jen Walters…but is that even possible? And where does that leave Hulk?

A perfect jumping on point for fans old and new, don’t miss SHE-HULK #159, in comic stores this November!

10.12.2017 - MAYOR FISK! Kingpin Rules In DAREDEVIL #595!

Your first look at the new Legacy issue!
                                                                                                              
There’s a new mayor in town…Mayor Fisk, that is. After his rise to the top, Matt Murdock’s classic foe takes center stage as Marvel Legacy hits DAREDEVIL #595, written by Charles Soule with art by Stefano Landini.

Matt Murdock has always had the law on his side, but now that Manhattan is under new rule, the tables have been turned: and it’s the vigilante hero who is on the outside of the law, with the Mayor of Crime ruling over Manhattan. 

“"MAYOR FISK is really about just one thing: Kingpin becomes...the king,” says series writer Charles Soule. “On page 1 of the story, Wilson Fisk has already become the mayor, with all of the power and resources that come with the position. So, Daredevil has lost the one thing he thought he could always rely on, the place he was sworn to protect: New York City. From there, we see how, and if, he can fight to win it back.”

“The entire DEFENDERS Legacy storyline, KINGPINS OF NEW YORK, is about the power vacuum left in the underworld now that Fisk has become Mayor and gone legit, and how a number of players start a big gang war attempting to fill it,” added SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. 

But Mayor Fisk’s rule won’t just affect the street team – all Marvel characters will feel his power! For fans who have been looking for a closer connectivity within the Marvel Universe, DAREDEVIL #595 is a perfect jumping off point.

“The nice thing about the story is that Fisk isn't just mayor in Daredevil,” said Soule. “It happens in every book across the Marvel Universe. So, every street-level hero (and even the Avengers-types) will feel the pressure from Fisk's term in office. As you might imagine, he makes New York a very uncomfortable place for anyone who dares to call themselves a superhero. I've been building to MAYOR FISK since my first issue on the title, and it's designed to be a huge epic in the best Daredevil-Kingpin tradition.”

“The Mayor’s reach can even be felt beneath the city streets in VENOM, where he’s deputized Kraven the Hunter to exterminate Stegron’s subterranean community of dinosaur-people,” added editor Devin Lewis.

The Kingpin’s rule begins this November, when DAREDEVIL #595 hits comic shops!

10.12.2017 - A New Enemy Rises in MOON KNIGHT #188!

Your first look as Max Bemis and Jacen Burrows take on the Marvel superhero!
                                                                                                              
Everyone’s favorite superhero oddball is about to have a new beginning in Marvel Legacy, as Max Bemis and Jacen Burrows have teamed up for an explosive story in MOON KNIGHT #188.

“Max and I are really striving to put something together that is unique and interesting while drawing from Moon Knight's long history,” said series artist Jacen Burrows. “This next chapter in Moon Knight's life is going to permanently affect this character's path and we are working hard live up to the task.”

While Moon Knight may have vanquished his mental demons, it doesn’t mean that he’s not in for trouble with a mysterious new nemesis – a dangerous enemy who will change his life forever and keep him from the shadows.

“Moon Knight has been in a sort of creative renaissance since Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey relaunched the character in 2014, all the way through the amazing arc recently completed by Jeff Lemire, Greg Smallwood and company,” said Burrows. “We hope to continue this by making the next important chapter in Marc Spector's life thought provoking, intense, a little scary, and a little funny.”
