New “Attack on Titan”/Marvel Crossover Details Revealed

The crossover teased earlier this week between Marvel Comics and the smash-hit manga “Attack on Titan” will appear in the next issue of the Japanese pop-culture magazine “Brutus,” on sale Nov. 15.

According to Crunchyroll, the “What If?”-style comic will depict the Avengers fighting the 46-foot-tall Female Titan on the streets of New York City. “Attack on Titan” creator Hajime Isayama illustrated the magazine’s cover, as well as a special Titan sticker.

Debuting in 2009, the post-apocalyptic fantasy is set in a world where remorseless, flesh-eating giants have all but wiped out humanity, whose remnants are forced to live within a country surrounded by three enormous walls. The story initially centers on Eren Yeager who, after watching his mother be devoured by a Titan, dedicates himself to destroying the creatures. However, it’s later revealed that Eren possesses the ability to transform into a Titan himself.

“Attack on Titan” has sold more than 30 million copies to date in Japan, and inspired spinoff manga, light novels, video games and a hit anime; a live-action movie is also in development. On Wednesday, Universal Studios Japan announced it will erect a statue of the 49-foot Eren Titan battling the 46-foot Female Titan as part of its “Universal Cool Japan” attraction.
