Marvel has dropped a teaser trailer for its upcoming Judgment Day event.
Marvel released a teaser trailer and cover art for the upcoming AXIS: Judgment Day, a massive crossover event scheduled to kick off in June that sees the Avengers, Eternals and X-Men all pitted against one another. The plot synopsis for the event reads, “The Avengers have become a more powerful global force than ever from their base inside a long-dead Celestial. The X-Men have achieved a form of immortality on their utopian island nation of Krakoa. And the Eternals have begun a new cycle of life as they continue their sworn mission to eliminate the Deviants. But when the Eternals learn that mutantkind itself is a form of excess deviation, a vicious assault on Krakoa ensues – with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes trapped in the middle. Years of tension lead to a volcanic eruption as two worlds burn.”
Judgment Day starts in June with AXE: Eve of Judgment #1, a prelude issue from writer Kieron Gillen and artist Pasqual Ferry that presents the set-up for the apocalyptic conflict. Following Eve of Judgmentthe main Judgment Day saga will be told in a six-issue series that launches in July. Other series set within the Marvel Universe will also tie into the event.
“An extraordinary odyssey that will leave a profound emotional impact on the Marvel mythology, AXIS: Judgment Day will tie together radical plot developments from the last few years including the X-Men’s discovery of immortality, the Eternals’ newfound knowledge about their purpose and the Avengers’ assembling a powerful lineup at their base in the body of a fallen Celestial,” Marvel said of the event.
“There’s a classic metaphor to describe the Marvel Universe – a toybox, which creators take toys out of, play with and put back,” Gillen added. “I get it, but it’s never quite how I’ve seen it – I think ‘play’ in another way. I think of a music shop, with all these instruments with their different qualities suggesting different songs, different stories. For all the Marvel instruments I’ve played, I’ve never written an event. Writing an event is something different. It’s not like playing an instrument. It’s having all the instruments in the Marvel music shop. That’s not like writing a song. That’s like writing a symphony. I looked at everything in Eternals and Immortal X-Men and everything else all the X and Avengers writers have done and thought… yeah, this is an event. In fact, an event is the only way to do justice to this.”
AXE: Eve of Justice #1 comes from writer Kieron Gillen, artist Pasqual Ferry and cover artist Carlos Pacheco. The issue releases on June 29 from Marvel Comics. AXIS: Judgment Day #1 comes from writer Kieron Gillen, artist Valerio Schiti and cover artist Mark Brooks. The issue releases in July.
