Marvel’s new series The Trials of Ultraman gets underway next month as writers Kyle Higgins and Mat Groom and artist Francesco Manna, the creative team behind the pop culture icon’s Marvel Comics debut The Rise of Ultraman dive even deeper into the Ultraman mythos.
“In The Rise of Ultraman, we had to create a whole new universe (built on the powerful concepts and characters of the original television shows). Then, in the final issue of RISE, we turned that world upside-down. Now, in The Trials of Ultraman, we get to really explore this new universe – the consequences of decisions made in Rise, and the possibilities (as well as tensions) of a newly-fantastical global community,” Higgins and Groom explained. “The introduction is over… now, we’ll be diving into the real meat of our Ultraman saga. And the stakes and scale will only continue to grow.”

The Trials of Ultraman will pick up directly after Ultraman’s explosive battle with Bemular. Ultraman may have saved the world but now come the consequences. Earth’s greatest defender will have to contend with a suspicious populace, hidden enemies, and the mysterious return of a long-thought-lost comrade! The RISE is over and now Ultraman must face his greatest challenges yet.
The Trials of Ultraman #1 will go on sale on March 17th.
