Kingpin's New Thunderbolts Begin The Purge Of Marvel's Super Heries In Devil's Reign

Kingpin's New Thunderbolts Begin The Purge Of Marvel's Super Heries In Devil's Reign


Jay Cochran - September 13, 2021
The recently announced Marvel Comics event DEVIL’S REIGN launches this December with two exciting issues! The highly anticipated saga from writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Marco Checchetto will see Kingpin on a vicious quest to rid the world of super heroes through any means necessary, and he’ll have an army of super villains at his command to see it through. Consisting of Crossbones, Taskmaster, Typhoid Mary, Shocker, Whiplash, Rhino, and Kraven, this deadly new team of Thunderbolts will report for duty in DEVIL’S REIGN #2 and represent only the opening salvo of Kingpin’s plan to remake the Marvel Universe in his own image.

“Our Daredevil plan just kept getting bigger and bigger, to the point where it would clearly affect the Marvel Universe in huge ways,” Zdarsky explained. “Thankfully, Marvel recognized this as well and gave Marco and I the opportunity to tell the story on a massive stage with DEVIL’S REIGN! This is a proper Marvel event springing from the pages of Daredevil and I think all Marvel readers will love what’s coming!"

DEVIL’S REIGN will also tie into some of your favorite ongoing series including December’s SPIDER-WOMAN #18 by series creative team, writer Karla Pacheco and artist Pere Pérez. Mayor Wilson Fisk is purging vigilantes from his city, and Spider-Woman is on his list! Fisk will do anything to bring her down, including going after her loved ones. It’s all on the line for Spider-Woman during DEVIL’S REIGN! Here’s Pacheco had to say about what’s come for Jessica Drew:

“When Chip first asked about tying Spider-Woman into this spectacular event, I immediately said ‘How did you get this number, and what do you want?’ Okay, actually it was more me begging ‘PLEAAAAASE CHIP!!! LET ME AND PERE BE A PART OF THIS BIG AWESOME THINGY! WE LOVE DEADPOOL AND *YOU*. After he corrected me that it was a DAREDEVIL event, we were still really stoked about it. I can't wait for everyone to see how Jessica Drew handles the chaos Wilson Fisk is bringing to her world, and we have some absolutely explosive issues coming up. Devil's Reign threatens everyone Jess loves, AND brings back one of her greatest nemesisiseses in a way I don't think anyone will see coming. Especially not Jess!”

From the Fantastic Four to the X-men, be there when Kingpin brings his full criminal and political power to bear on all of Marvel’s super heroes. Stay tuned for more announcement about upcoming DEVIL’S REIGN tie-in series including January’s DEVIL’S REIGN: VILLAINS FOR HIRE.

This Spider-Woman suit.. I know there was that controversy over her New Avengers cover being overtly sexualized but even the cover here for SW #18.. her costumes lines bring focus to her anatomy in ways most other super suits dont..

isnt one of her powers, or former powers, pheromone based? Made her enemies attracted to her? I may be confusing her with someone else but dang, between how she is commonly drawn, her eye catching costume and her Spider-Man like poses that when applied to the female form drive the fan boys crazy and the Karens cry foul.. no wonder this suit is so popular

This looks like a fun crossover event. Reminds of the better ones from the 80s/90s that were overall smaller scale but involved many corners of the Marvel Universe.

Ill look for the trade when it comes out

So glad that Jessica Drew is back in her classic Spider-Woman costume. Nothing against the other costumes she's worn over the last couple years, but her original is one of my all-time favorite superhero costume designs, and probably my number 1 favorite for a female character.

Agree, simple and classic. By far her best and most iconic look.

I love these grand royale team up type stories. They get me every time, especially whenthey involve DD. Checchetto is a great artist, second only to Leinil Yu for Dynamic Realism. I'm actually looking forward to this one.

I also missed the boat on Zdarsky's DD despite the great word of mouth. I adore Checchetto on art though, if I knew he was involved earlier, I'd have been right on it. I'll probably pick this up as an event and see where DD goes from here.

ADour - 2021-09-07 @ 8:07 pm

I've heard good things about Zdarsky's Daredevil run, but always felt like I would have to do a lot of catch-up, so this might be a good jumping-in point.

...

Gah, I can't believe I've fallen for the "lets make every issue a #1" marketing shtick.

Atlantis - 2021-09-07 @ 7:52 pm

I didn't care much for this Checchetto art....and also getting tired of this notion that all these villains has this much power over the heroes. Maybe I'll give it a gander but likely I'll just pass.
