Secret Empire: Uprising - Now With Fewer Champions?

Secret Empire: Uprising – Now With Fewer Champions?

stl043706This is how Secret Empire: Uprising #1 was solicited thus:

A crucial SECRET EMPIRE tie-in that bridges issues #3 and #4! There’s a new order to things in the world, but it’s not one that everybody agrees with! So what is there left to do about it? The Black Widow has a dangerous plan—but to carry it out, she’ll need the help of the young heroes of the Marvel Universe—and it may require them to cross a line they never thought they would! THE SECRET EMPIRE WILL CHAMPION YOU!

But this is what retailers have been informed it is changing to.

Only that last “Champion” reference has changed. Is it that the Champions aren’t quite as prominent as may have been promised? From the original PR…

One of the overriding themes in SECRET EMPIRE: UPRISING is for the heroes not to make the same old mistakes all over again,” said Landy. “The Champions, for instance, are looking for non-violent ways to stop violent opponents, and that ethos spills over into Uprising. How do a bunch of super-powered kids, brimming with optimism, factor in the Black Widow’s dark agenda when confronted with Captain America’s role in the Hydra takeover of America? What are they willing to do? How far are they willing to go?”

Seems a peculiar solicit change to make…
