EXCLUSIVE: Action Comics #1014 Sees a New Villain Targeting Leviathan

Brian Michael Bendis and Szymon Kudranski's Action Comics #1014 sees another character pursuing the identity of Leviathan: Marisol Leone.

Leone is a relatively new character to DC Comics and is a crime lord that purchased the Daily Planet. The preview shows her meeting Perry White for the first time in person. Although he offers to do a profile on her, she's got her sights set on someone bigger: Leviathan. The character is the primary villain of Event Leviathan, an event series by Bendis and and artist Alex Maleev. At the start of that series, Leviathan systematically dismantled the world's most important and powerful intelligence agencies. Although their identity is unknown, Jason Todd/Red Hood remains the primary suspect, though he claims to be innocent.
