Judgment Day Event Announced by Marvel

No Comments

Judgment Day is coming to the pages of Marvel Comics. The publisher has announced its next big event, which will involve the X-Men, Eternals and Avengers all going to war. This one figures to be quite epic, even by massive comic book crossover standards. Marvel shared some early artwork in announcing the title that teases some of the epicness to come. Have a look. 



Kieron Gillen (Eternals) is writing the crossover event, which will see several currently storylines converging. Valerio Schiti is handling the art. Gillen’s own work with the Eternals, as well as Jason Arron’s run in the main Avengers line. Not to mention everything that has been going on with the X-Men in their sanctuary of Krakoa. It’s all building to an epic showdown between the Eternals and mutantking. It’s up to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to try and salvage the situation. 


Here is the synopsis for Judgment Day. 


“The X-Men have achieved immortality and mutants have taken their place as the dominant species on the planet. The Eternals have discovered long hidden knowledge about their species, including a devastating truth about mutantkind. The Avengers have come into direct conflict with the Celestials and are currently using a fallen Celestial as their base of operations, slowly unlocking its secrets… When the Eternals brazenly target the mutant nation of Krakoa, the Avengers try desperately to de-escalate a potentially apocalyptic war. But this is no simple conflict. The Eternals’ purpose cannot be denied and mutantkind’s future will not be threatened. And after the opening battles, new players and revelations for both sides will emerge as the inhabitants of the Marvel Universe are JUDGED by the greatest power they’ve ever come into contact with.”


 Gillen had this to say about taking on the event. 


“I looked at everything in Eternals and Immortal X-Men and everything else all the X and Avengers writers have done and thought… yeah, this is an event. In fact, an event is the only way to do justice to this. The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson described the music he was reaching for as Teenage Symphonies to God. I think that’s what the best Marvel Events aspire to be, and it’s what we’re aspiring to here. I want the scale. I want the heartbreak . I want a book that wears its heart on its sleeve even as it puts a fist in your face. I want something Wagnerian in its volume as emotional as God Only Knows.”


Marvel says that build-up for the event will be coming in the pages of Eternals, Immortal X-Men, X-Men, and Avengers. Aside from that, those who want to get a taste of what’s to come can pick up Free Comic Book Day: Avengers/X-Men #1 on May 7. The book will be free at comic book shops across the country as part of the annual event. 


Judgment Day is set to unfold this summer.
