Judgement Day Brings Back Friends, Foes, And Greg Land In Newly Revealed Stories

This summer, the Avengers, the X-Men, the Eternals, and more will face new threats (and each other) in A.X.E: Judgement Day. Written by Kieron Gillen and drawn by artist Valerio Schiti, this year’s big crossover event begins when the Eternals target mutantkind and the Avengers find themselves struggling to prevent an apocalyptic war between two of the strongest factions on the planet. The saga will pay off various plot threads that have defined these franchises in recent years including mutantkind’s newfound immortality, the Eternals’ discovery of long-hidden truths about their species, and the Avengers’ intense dealings with the Celestials.

In A.X.E: Judgement Day #3 and #4, the Celestial known as the Progenitor will rise to usher in the second act of the event where various heroes and villains stand for judgment. Defending their past actions and mistakes in fascinating ways, these hard-hitting stories will impact various ongoing titles in thrilling tie-in issues. Read on to learn more about what’s to come!  

It’s time for Spider-Man to be judged in Zeb Wells and John Romita Jr.’s Amazing Spider-Man #10 and fans won’t be surprised to see which moment in Spidey’s history is going to weigh heavily on the proceedings. You don’t want to miss this very special issue that might just break your heart all over again.

Event architect Kieron Gillen’s continues his work on the Eternals mythology alongside artist Guiu Vilanova in A.X.E Death To the Mutants #2. The Celestials said “Correct excess deviation.” Now the hour of judgment is upon the Eternals. Have they done enough? And does overcompensating at this late hour make it better, or make it worse?

As the Fantastic Four falls before the Exterminatrix’s death traps, only one hero remains standing — but if you thought Oubliette was dangerous, it’s nothing compared to what the Invisible Woman is capable of. Get ready for Die Hard in the Baxter Building. Yippie-ki-yay, Marvel Universe.
