“I cannot wait for readers to see this story,” editor Jake Thomas said in a statement. “It’s a different kind of threat than our heroes are usually up against, and watching all their usual defenses crumble is going to be crazy exciting, and more than a little scary!

It’s everything you want out of a big, crazy Marvel event, all packed into one wild month!”
