After it was teased at last year's San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Comics has finally revealed new details about writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Valerio Schiti's plan to explore the forces at the heart of the Marvel Universe.
Over the last decade, we've seen Hickman transform the worlds of the Fantastic Four, the Avengers, and the X-Men. However, G.O.D.S. will mark his most ambitious undertaking to date, dramatically reshaping Marvel's pantheon of cosmic beings and the entities behind the very fabric of reality.
We'll meet Wyn, a mysterious player in a war that exists outside of the orders we know and a vital member of an eons-old hierarchy that includes the omnipotent rulers of the universe such as Eternity, Infinity, and the Living Tribunal.
After a fateful meeting with Doctor Strange, Wyn hints at something even bigger than the forces of good and evil, where the very building blocks of creation scheme and clash. It’s the beginning of a breathtaking epic at the crossroads of science and magic, one that will shatter our understanding and open our eyes to ideas beyond all that we perceive.
"When I came back to Marvel a few years ago, I wrote two series bibles. The first was House of X and the other one was G.O.D.S.," Hickman explains. "To say that I’m excited to finally be able to share this story with everyone is a massive understatement."
"G.O.D.S. takes place in its own special corner of the Marvel Universe - in the cracks that lie at the intersection of science and magic - and revisits some characters and concepts that we've reimagined for a more modern, continuity-driven audience."
What happens when "The Powers That Be meet The Natural Order of Things"? Marvel Comics claims we wouldn't believe them if they told us!
