Deathmatch Profile: The Glyph

32 Were Chosen. 31 Will Die.

Introducing… The Glyph.

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

Well, if there is only one person left standing… does anyone really think it will be The Glyph? Nah, didn’t think so. Can’t see a new Glyph series from BOOM!, can you? But… I will give this to Jenkins, he sure did come up with a doozy here. Sounds like an interesting character and makes the playing field a little uneven, considering The Glyph’s magic. Perhaps it’s ability to open up other dimensions will help those trying to flee the Deathmatch?
