Marvel has an interesting new Earth turned cosmic event on the horizon in ‘Original Sin’ and it actually sounds like it could mostly be a fun read. When I first heard about the idea of the Watcher being killed, I thought it wasn’t the best of ideas. When I heard that “secrets would be revealed”, I internally groaned. The more I’ve been haring, though, I’ve come to realize that I am interested in at least a few of the story lines that will be coming up!
A new Spider-Man(or Woman) that was bitten by the same spider? Not that interested. Deadpool’s new secret origin? Also not that interested. Angela entering the Marvel Universe because she was secretly one of the Gods that was a half sister to Thor and Loki? Seems a little far fetched. Tony Stark having a role in the gamma bomb that created The Hulk? Is that really necessary?
A 70’s era Luke Cage story line? OK I’m not sold but I’m interested.
However on the flip side: FINALLY finding out what happened to Richard Rider’s Nova? I can’t wait! Seeing what Cap does when he finds out that the Illuminati wiped his mind? Sign me up today!
Check out the trailer for the comic followed by the synopsis below:
Who Shot The Watcher? The Watcher, the mysterious space-god who’s been watching us from the moon for as long as we can remember… is dead. Thus begins the greatest murder mystery in Marvel Comics history. As Nick Fury leads the heroes of the Marvel Universe in an investigation, other forces are marshaling as well and other questions are arising. Why is Black Panther gathering a secret team of his own, including Emma Frost, the Punisher and Dr. Strange? Who is the Unseen? What was the Original Sin? What was stolen from the Watcher’s lair? And most importantly, who now holds the Marvel Universe’s darkest secrets in the palm of their hand?
ORIGINAL SIN is available May 7th in comic shops, the Marvel Comics app (for iPhone®, iPad®, iPad Touch® & Android devices) and online in the Marvel Digital Comics Shop. Trailer Voice-Over by Jesse Falcon.
