For their event of 2014 Marvel asks. “Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone.” Today Marvel announced Original Sin. Original Sin unites critically acclaimed writer Jason Aaron (Amazing X-Men, Thor: God of Thunder) and red-hot artist, Mike Deodato Jr. (Amazing Spider-Man, New Avengers) the eight-part blockbuster comic event of the summer!
What happens when the body of Uatu, the Watcher is discovered on the moon? His home destroyed? His valuable alien technology looted? The biggest heroes of the Marvel Universe, Captain America Iron Man, Wolverine, Black Widow, and more go on a manhunt for the murderer.
What is discovered, no one is prepared for. No one is ready for the secret knowledge the Watcher held. The Watcher’s secrets will shake the heroes and the Marvel Universe itself to it’s very core!
“This is basically a crime story. A murder mystery. A manhunt. But with the entirety of the Marvel Universe as its backdrop. We’re taking all the toys out of their packaging for this one. Everyone and everything is in play. For some characters, life will never be the same again. And it’s only a matter of time before more bodies are popping up.”
What did the Watcher see? And who wanted him dead because of it? With the greatest secrets of the Marvel Universe in the hands of his killer, it’s won’t be long before the shocking truth comes out! And even the greatest heroes of the Marvel Universe are not safe from the skeletons in their closets. All sins come with a price, and this summer – the truth can cost your life! This is…ORIGINAL SIN!
