Posted by April 26, 2017 26 Comments

The Secret Empire Spotlight issue, free from comic shops today, gives a greater insight ahead of the Secret Empire event. We’ve seen what happened in Secret Empire #0, the planetary shield used to keep the cosmic heroes out, as they are attacked by Chitauri, New York trapped in the Darkforce Dimension, Captain America in charge of SHIELD with emergency measures descending on the White House with Hydra taking over Sokovia and destroying any rebellion within SHIELD.

So we have new pages from Secret Empire #1 by Nick Spencer and Steve McNiven, with Captain Marvel seeking help from beyond.

A battle that is also continuing in Ultimates2 #7 by Al Ewing and Aud Koch… and they have a player they are trying to bring onto the board.

And a Coulson who has realised what is wrong with Captain America and a Deadpool who won’t countenance such a thing in Deadpool #31 by Gerry Duggan and Matteo Loli.

While Doctor Strange #21 by Dennis Hopeless and Niko Henrichon gives us an idea of what is going on inside the Darkforce Dimension that surrounds Manhattan. And invades even the Duane Reades…
