The sole survivors of their various Earths, this new Squadron Supreme will protect this one at any cost, but is the Marvel Universe ready for them? Marvel announced today a new ongoing series from Eisner Award-winning writer James Robinson (Fantastic Four, Starman), critically acclaimed artist Leonard Kirk (Fantastic Four), with covers by fan-favorite Alex Ross.
And they’re gunning for Namor after he destroyed Dr. Spectrum’s reality in Secret Wars. Will the people of Atlantis survive?
Hyperion (Avengers), Nighthawk (Supreme Power), Dr. Spectrum (The Great Society), Blur (DP7) and Warrior Woman (Squadron Sinister) don’t care what the rules are, and they’re not out to ask for permission. Each hailing from different universes, their Earths were all destroyed. But there is no time to grieve for the loss of their homes – because they’re out to make sure it never happens again! All that matters is the safety of our Earth, and if you stand in the way – they’re going right through you!
This fall the Marvel Universe has a new group of protectors, whether they like their methods or not. The Squadron Supreme may cross the line, but they get results.
They’re willing to do a lot of things that turn people off,” says writer James Robinson in an interview with Marvel.com. “They can seem a little cold blooded and ruthless but their idea is ‘we have a planet to save’. And if that means we have to sacrifice a few people to do it, we will. So they’re definitely at the darker end of the heroic spectrum.”
Squadron Supreme hits store shelves in the fall.
