Your First Look at CHAOS WAR #4
Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Chaos War #4 (of 5), the penultimate chapter of the senses-shattering epic from the New York Times bestselling creative team of writers Greg Pak, Fred Van Lente, and Khoi Pham! The Marvel Universe’s last hope hinges on the Thor, Hercules, Galactus and the divinely inspired God Squad as the Chaos King continues to lay waste to all in his way. Faced with impossible odds, Thor and Hercules must wage an all-or-nothing assault to end the reign of The Chaos King or face the annihilation of time and space as we know it.
As Marvel’s wall-to-wall battle for existence reaches its boiling point, fans and critics agree that Chaos War is a smash on a cosmic scale!
“Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente continue to deliver sharp dialogue, pitch-perfect characterization and impressive film-like pacing, all with the humor that we’ve grown used to with Herc and Cho.” – Dan Iverson,
"[An] action-filled romp of biblical proportions." — Patrick Hume,
"Every panel just exceeds in creating the illusion of a larger than life battle waged by gods in the arena of earth." — Ray Tate,
Can the God Squad put aside their divine differences for a last ditch effort to save life as we know it? Even eternals can fear the end of all things, but don’t expect them to go down without a fight in Chaos War #4 (of 5), on sale this December!

Your First Look At The KICK-ASS/NEMESIS/SUPERIOR Crossover!
Get your first look at three awe-inspiring variant covers from superstar artist Leinil Francis Yu, uniting the characters of Kick-Ass, Nemesis, and Superior in one climactic battle scene! When placed together, the Kick Ass 2 #2 Yu Variant, Superior #4 Yu Variant, and Nemesis #4 Yu Variant covers form a showdown between three of Millar’s most celebrated series!
"People kept suggesting I do a crossover with the Millarworld characters and I kind of loved the idea,” said Mark Millar. “It wouldn’t make sense as a story as they all exist in their own distinct universes. But I was talking to Leinil in New York about this a few weeks back and we came up with this idea of spreading the image across three variants, each character touching the front cover of another book and it seemed very exciting. These are my wee babies so to see them all playing together gives me a warm glow. I’m collecting them to form one big image and to have it framed over my desk."
