Emma Frost Weighs In On Nazi Punching Debate In New Tie-In, Secret Empire: United

Earlier this week, Bleeding Cool asked the question: “will Marvel’s Champions punch Nazis in already-delayed Secret Empire tie-in, Secret Empire: Uprising?” For the next (probably five dollar) one-shot supplementing the super-mega-crossover event in June, Marvel isn’t leaving things up to the imagination. Revealed on Marvel media partner website IGN, Emma Frost will lead a team of X-Men against Hydra in Secret Empire: United. From Jim Zub and Ario Anindito (with a cover by Ryan Stegman), the book provides readers the first glimpse at Frosts’ post-IvX status quo, in which she will, apparently, be leading her own team of X-Men, attempting to start a rebellion against Hydra in a mutant-controlled area of the U.S. called New Tian.

Wow. Emma Frost used her mind control powers to start a major war based on a lie during IvX, and still ended up a freedom-fighting hero during the follow-up super-mega-crossover event? Magneto got a really raw deal.

Ahem.

Secret Empire: United shows us both levels of Hydra’s orchestrated takeover; ground level conflict between ideologies and high level machinations by those in power,” Zub said of the one-shot. “It’s a super-powered thriller with twisted Avengers, X-Men, and Hydra all jockeying for their place in the new world that emerges from Secret Empire.”

Secret Empire: United hits stores in June. And on the cover: POW!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
