Courtesy of Marvel Comics we have your first look at a new Heroes Reborn one-shot which involves Weapon X. Weapon X & Final Flight, actually! The cover, by Tony S. Daniel, shows off much of the team which includes Wolverine, Aurora, Guardian, Sasquatch, and Shaman. Written by Ed Brisson with art by Roland Boschi the one-shot is set to release in June.
Back in February AIPT had the exclusive first look at Steve Orlando and Bernard Chang’s Heroes Reborn: Magneto & The Mutant Force #1 and the mutant action gets even more intense in June!
Brisson explained this series focuses on Weapon X, which is the arch-enemy of the world’s superhero team The Squadron Supreme of America. They have a good reason, as Brisson told us, “After a battle between the two, Canada is left in ruins. Alpha Flight’s roster has been decimated and millions of Canadians killed. Logan here is much like the Logan we all know and love. He’s the best at what he does and what he does in this book is seeking revenge. The Squadron has killed everyone Logan cares about and he’s not about to let it lie.” Uh oh bub, that sounds like a good reason to unleash the berserker in Logan.
Brisson added, “This book has been a great deal of fun to work on. I get to play around in the moral grey area of super hero battles and their fallout and don’t think folks are prepared for what we have in store for them.”
Check out the cover and full solicit below!
THEY’RE THE BEST THERE IS AT WHAT THEY DO!
In a world without the Avengers, the Squadron Supreme protects and defends the interests of America! But where does that leave a country like Canada? The Great White North is now a wasteland. Their forests are scorched. Their provinces annexed. Their people barely surviving. Who will stand up and protect them from the supremacy of the Squadron? Weapon X and Final Flight, that’s who!
