Now this is a comic event that I’m picking up day one! Marvel has released details for the upcoming event, Judgement Day, which will be Eternals vs X-Men vs Avengers. The team behind this bad boy are writer Kieron Gillen and artist Valerio Schiti, which is fantastic.
From Marvel, here’s what to expect from the event:
Already redefining the Eternals mythos in ETERNALS, and soon to be shepherding in the next age of mutantkind in IMMORTAL X-MEN, Gillen will take his work on both titles as well as recent storylines in Jason Aaron and Javier Garron’s AVENGERS run for an odyssey that will usher in dramatic developments for these three core Marvel teams. And Schiti, already proven to be a masterful event storyteller in books like EMPYRE and INFERNO, will deliver the breathtaking action and high-stakes thrills that transpire when Super Hero titans clash. Together, these iconic creators have crafted an intense saga that’s destined to take its place among the most impactful events in Marvel Comics history.
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.
Man, this event is going to be so good! I love what Kieron Gillen has done with his current Eternals run, so I know that Judgement Day could easily be one of the best comic events of the year. I always wanted more Eternals and X-Men interactions when there’s so much important history between them. Yeah, I’m truly excited for this.
Judgement Day will begin in July!
