Turner Variant Revealed for Onslaught Reborn #1

 

           

Celebrating the ten year anniversary of Heroes Reborn, Onslaught Reborn #1 will feature a 50/50 variant cover by superstar artist Michael Turner seen here for the first time.  Ten years ago, the Marvel Universe was forever changed when its heroes selflessly sacrificed themselves to save the world from Onslaught.

 

However the vile beast, spawned from the most sinister thoughts of Charles Xavier and Magneto, is back!  Jeph Loeb and Rob Liefeld reunite to bring back one of the greatest threats the Marvel Universe ever faced.

 

"It's all so amazing," says Loeb, "This great big giant really creepy powerful villain returns!"

 

Fans can expect a no-holds-barred battle spanning the Marvel Universe and the pocket universe created by Franklin Richards.  Prepare yourself for Onslaught Reborn!

 

A significant portion of the proceeds from Onslaught Reborn #1-5 will be donated to The Sam Loeb College Scholarship Fund.
