It's finally (almost) here. Marvel Legacy #1, the hotly anticipated one-shot that sets the stage for the next phase of the Marvel Comics Universe, hits stands next Wednesday, September 27. And CBR has your exclusive first look at the coveted issue, which packs a sneak peek at the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC. The one-shot promises to tell the “startling origin of the Marvel Universe” and underscore how “it’s all connected.”
In June, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso described Legacy as “a new initiative that will take things back to our iconic history, with a firm eye on the future,” adding that “Marvel Legacy will present stories that remind everyone — newcomers and longtime fans alike — why Marvel stands as the premier name in fiction.” He would then go on to say, “Our titles will unearth gems from Marvel’s rich history, remind readers of connections between characters, and usher in the return of some major characters who’ve been missed. Above all else, we want to inject our comics with a massive dose of fun!”
