Marvel Heroes Are 'United' in New Secret Empire Teaser

After releasing six teasers on Thursday for "Secret Empire," this morning Marvel Comics has one more promo for the upcoming crossover event -- this one illustrated by John Cassaday.

The image, below, features Spider-Man, Captain America (Steve Rogers), Captain Marvel, Old Man Logan, Rocket Raccoon, Black Bolt and Deadpool beneath the by-now-familiar "Secret Empire" logo. It's accompanied by the words "United We Stand," that not only echoes the "Divided We Fall" slogan from last summer's Marvel NOW! promotion, but perhaps signals a reconciliation within the Marvel Universe following the events of "Civil War II."

The image also confirms "Secret Empire" isn't merely a Captain America event, but will draw heroes from all corners of the Marvel Universe, as suggested by the previous teasers, which seemingly referenced the X-Men, the Avengers, Spider-Man, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Champions and the newly announced Defenders.

No additional details have been announced. However, the subversive organization known as the Secret Empire has been a fixture of Marvel Comics since 1966, when it was introduced as a subsidiary of the terrorist group Hydra devoted to conquering the United States. Usually headed by a supreme leader referred to as Number One, the Secret Empire over the years has clashed with S.H.I.E.L.D. and numerous Marvel heroes, including Captain America, the Incredible Hulk, the X-Men, Moon Knight, The Punisher, Secret Avengers and Hawkeye/Kate Bishop.
