Marvel’s Vengeance Revealed (UPDATE)

Posted by April 11, 2011 Comment

We touched ion this story, reporting from Wondercon. As well as Stacy-X and Holocaust there seem to be a few more members of Vengeance… whatever that is.

Click here at 3pm ET, 10pm PT, 8pm BST to find out.

UPDATE: So it’s Joe Casey and Nick Dragotta,

Tom Brennan says they wanted to do a series that focused on the villains, “and naturally when it comes to pure evil Joe Casey comes to mind.” they’re exploring the nature of evil in the Marvel Universe, which has always been more complex than you might see in other comics. Marvel villains have strong motivations.

Series kicks off in July and is six issues.

In the first eight pages, they go to Hitler’s Germany, the most insane nightclub, the Nine dimensions, and a homeless shelter.

As for whether or not that’s Stacy X, it looks like her, but you’ll have to read the first issue.

You can look at each cover as a corner of the Marvel Universe that will be explored and looked in on. In the issue with the Doc Ock cover, you’ll be in the Spider-Man/street level milieu, for instance.

There’s a character there called the Ultimate Nullifier who Joe says is “the coolest thing,” and a new Miss America.

It’s a big, sprawling epic, where each issue will have sort of special guest stars. It’s not an anthology or a series of one-shots. The characters that carry through the whole stories, each in their different ways, deal with the villains in their own ways.

this series will introduce a new Teen Brigade

Is the title Vengeance at all a nod to “Acts of Vengeance?” “Yes” is all Tom Brennan will say.

Is there any tie between the six characters we’ve seen in teasers and the six villains on the covers? No, they just wanted to put out the six character designs that they thought would get people talking.
