The War of the Realms is Marvel’s biggest-ever super-mega-crossover event, and it’s one that has already had a transformative effect on the Marvel Universe, with Earth’s heroes failing to defend against the initial invasion of Malekith’s armies, leaving the surviving forces to attempt to mount a resistance against impossible odds. But just because war is horrible doesn’t mean there can’t be some nice moments too, as we see in this preview of War of the Realms: Strikeforce: Land of the Giants #1, as Spider-Man meets Captain America on a frigid mountaintop… and wonders how he got there.
And the answer, of course, is via flying horse. Since all of the Valkyries were wiped out in War of the Realms #1 to show people how serious this super-mega-crossover event is, Captain America has commandeered one of their horses. And this gives Spidey an idea…
Really, Spider-Man? At a time like this? Have you forgotten about what comes with great power again? (Hint: it’s great responsibility).
But Spider-Man isn’t thinking about responsibility right now. He’s thinking about a ride on a flying god damn horse.
War of the Realms: Strikeforce: Land of the Giants #1 flies into comic book stores on Wednesday. Check out the full preview below.
