Marvel's new Acts of Evil comic event promises to pit some of your favorite heroes against villains they've never faced before, with each issue releasing in July as one-shot annuals. Heroes set to star in these one-shots include Ms. Marvel, Venom and the Punisher.
“You know what everyone says is worse than the devil? The devil you don’t know!” editor Kathleen Wisneski teased in a press release. “For ACTS OF EVIL, Marvel is pitting our heroes against villains they’ll never see coming, and we’ve lined up creative teams with fresh takes on these characters to make sure our fans are just as blindsided. So readers should steel themselves! And make sure they don’t miss the launch of the next legendary rivalry, or hints at a supervillain’s next masterstroke…”
The Acts of Evil name looks to be a reference to "Acts of Vengeance," a Marvel crossover in which Loki brings together several supervillains to face off with the Fantastic Four and the Avengers.
The first three titles will premiere in July. The names and creative teams behind Acts of Evil can be found below:
