The Grand Unveiling Of The Union

The Grand Unveiling Of The Union

Jay Cochran - February 20, 2020
Marvel’s newest super team is here! Meet The Union, a team composed of heroes from all over the United Kingdom, in an exciting new series from writer Paul Grist (Judge Dredd, Jack Staff) and artist Andrea Di Vito (Annihilation). Union Jack along with a host of spectacular new heroes have banded together just in time to take on the galactic threat coming in Marvel’s 2020 event, Empyre, but that is only the start of this team’s epic adventures.

“40 years ago, Roger Stern and John Byrne introduced a new Union Jack into the pages of Captain America! This is the comic I've been waiting 40 years to write!” says Grist. “New heroes! New adventures! And a team that’s falling apart before it's even begun!”

Joining Union Jack will be the best heroes the UK has to offer including Snakes from Northern Ireland, Kelpie from Scotland, The Choir from Wales, and their fearless leader, the legendary Britannia! With new heroes comes new designs and hit artist R.B. Silva (Powers of X) was delighted to provide dynamic looks for the whole cast!

“I really like Medieval themes. With Britania and Kelpie, I wanted them to look like medieval warriors and I just simplified and modernized it from there,” Silva explained. “For Snakes, I thought of the visual for the Executioner. Someone the enemy will fear from just a look. And for the Choir, more of a light visual, something that can enable quick movements. On her knife I put 3 dragon's heads. I know on Wales’ flag they have a dragon with only one head but I thought, why not three?”

See Silva’s cover below as well as his eye-popping character designs and prepare to meet these new heroes when THE UNION #1 hits stands this May!

She's part of MI6 now. this is more one country one hero sort of thing.

I get you. It still would have been cool to see them both though.

A book featuring Union Jack and some of his fellow UK heroes but no Spitfire? Shame.

Still wondering if these will be made into Legends form anytime soon. Can't imagine it would happen this year, but anything's possible....

Good to see they managed to repurpose this mini after the Empyre tie-in culling. I'm still bummed Marvel's best modern event had to be trimmed down because of the pandemic.

Looks pretty cool. I admit I know nothing of any of these characters except Union Jack but the rest give off mystical vibes. Does UJ fit with this group or is this only because he fits the UK criteria?

i know UJ has fought vampires but as recently as his last limited series he was sort of a street level hero of the people. 

May grab the trade, always support Union Jack, fun character

Well barring Union Jack they are all new characters.

Also Union Jack does/did have magical powers.  He was a member of the Knights of Pendragon.
