    Default Deathmatch Profile: Meridian

    32 Were Chosen. 31 Will Die.



    Introducing... Meridian.



    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.

    Bleeding Cool's Take

    Well, Meridian is the guy. The Superman, if you will. He is the one who will be the most difficult to beat and the most likely to win. Which means he won't. Jenkins is too good a writer to go for the obvious.

    With all these powerful people - those who can create wormholes, travel between time and space, master the magic arts - whomever is holding all these beings together and forcing them to fight must be beyond power (a "beyonder," perhaps?).

    Your thoughts??*Post your comments?*here.

    Look for another Deathmatch contestant Monday!

    I like the twist that the survivors of the Krypton-analog were scattered through space and time.

    Have I mentioned recently that Paul Jenkins is like the best Spider-Man writer of all time?
