Marvel Comics kicked things off with a logo-only teaser, ramped it up yesterday with the re-issue of John Romita Jr.’s depiction of some of the heroes affected by the fallout of “Fear Itself” and “Schism” and today, “Shattered Heroes” shows something truly shattered with a shot of Thor’s Mjolnir, destroyed, possibly beyond repair.
Today’s quote comes from David Gabriel, Marvel’s SVP of Sales, who says, “Earth’s Mightiest deal with the cataclysmic aftermath of ‘Fear Itself’ and we will all mourn the devastating outcome.” Couple that statement with Mjolnir’s destruction and last week’s announcement of a new god of thunder, and things don’t look terribly good for the Odinson come October.
“The war is over, and the warriors return home, carrying with them scars of battle, both physical and mental. Now the cost will be tallied, the casualties buried and mourned, the rubble swept up and carted away. But the damage to our heroes isn’t easily repaired, the wounds not easily healed.Â Â Decisions are made and lives are changed-can shattered heroes find renewed courage to go on?” – Tom Brevoort, SVP Executive Editor
