Ahead of their Sakaar showdown on the big screen this November in Thor: Ragnarok, the God of Thunder and the Green Goliath are set to do battle in the next sinatlments of Marvel and comiXology’s line of exclusive digital comics, Thor vs Hulk: Champions of the Universe, from writer Jeremy Whitley and artists Simone Buonfantino and Alti Firmasyah.
“The Mighty Thor and The Incredible Hulk have long been two of the strongest, mightiest, and most sought out heroes of the Marvel Universe,” said series writer Jeremy Whitley. “Thor is a god, Hulk is a colossus. Now the Champion of the Universe is looking for an opponent and Hulk and Thor are the top contenders. So rather than fight them both, The Champion’s new promoter has set up a series of contests which Hulk and Thor must complete to decide who will face The Champion.”
“We wanted to take the things we love from stories like Contest of Champions and add a new twist that allows us to play in the ENTIRE Marvel Universe,” Whitley continued. “Every issue is a new world, a new task, and new trials for the God of Thunder and the Great Green Goliath. Readers will get to see some of their favorite elements of the Marvel Universe and a handful of new ones. We wanted to make a mini-series jam-packed with so much action that readers would come back to it again and again. It’s a love letter to two of the strongest Avengers and the wonderful universe they live in. A universe where anything can happen.”
Thor Vs Hulk focuses on two of Earth’s mightiest heroes, whose skills, endurance and friendship are put to the test when they’re pitted against each other to decide who will fight the Elder of the Universe known as the Champion.
Thor vs Hulk: Champions of the Universe #1 is available for pre-order for $2.99 on comiXology and Kindle, or will be available free to comiXology Unlimited subscribers when it launches on September 6th.
