Deathmatch Profile: Apex

32 Were Chosen. 31 Will Die.

Introducing… Apex.

A powerful and mysterious supervillain has imprisoned the world’s greatest superheroes, forcing them to fight to the death until there is but one victor. It’s kill or be killed as we settle the score on all those hypothetical superhero match-ups in this new ongoing series by Paul Jenkins (SENTRY, INHUMANS) and artist Carlos Magno (PLANET OF THE APES) with covers by Whilce Portacio (WETWORKS, INCREDIBLE HULK). DEATHMATCH #1 is just $1 and will be in stores on December 26th!

Here’s How It Works:

This month and next, Bleeding Cool will spotlight DEATHMATCH and each individual character, in conjunction with BOOM! Studios. Characters will be introduced through profile page entries detailing their histories, powers, origins and other key pieces of information. Prior to each new issue coming out, Bleeding Cool will reveal the primary deathmatch along with profiles of the two participating characters with their key characteristic and powers. Fans will be able to post their predictions for the winner of the deathmatch on our message boards. If you correctly predict the outcome of every deathmatch throughout the course of the series, you will be rewarded with a truly exclusive item at the end of the series (along with your favorite comic shop).

You can pre-order DEATHMATCH #1 at your local comic shop! Item code: OCT120874.

For all the details, and to see previous character profiles, visit our Deathmatch Death Draft Central.

Bleeding Cool’s Take

Wait… who’s Meridian? Oh, those BOOM! guys… such a tease. Hard to say how Apex will do in a deathmatch, not knowing what his powers entail. However, with his chiseled and heroic look, my first reaction was “goner” when I saw him. Seems like the type of character people expect to survive, therefore I expect Jenkins to kill him off quickly. Perhaps one of his “sudden bouts of weakness” comes at just the wrong moment, like when he appears to win?

Look for another Deathmatch contestant tomorrow!
