The oldest conflict in the Marvel Universe will reignite this February as Marvel launches Dan Slott’s Fantastic Four: Reckoning War, and the publisher has shared an official trailer which sheds some light on the hotly-anticipated comic book event which Slott describes as “[his] Star Wars”.
“When I was eight years old I read a particular Marvel comic that struck me,” said Slott. “It got me thinking ‘If this happened, and that happened, then the whole Marvel universe would be in trouble. Every facet would be in danger if this conflict happened again, and I’ve sat back and waited since I was eight years old and no one ever touched on this. And that made me happy. The Reckoning War is me finally being able to answer the question an eight-year-old me had: What if those guys showed up again? It’s chaos, madness… A fight for your life. This is my Star Wars.”
Fantastic Four: Reckoning War will shed light on the First War that rocked the Marvel Universe, a conflict that preceded Asgard, Galactus, and all the heroes you know and love. That war will now reignite and only the Fantastic Four can defend the Universe from the chaos it will unleash.
Fantastic Four: Reckoning War Alpha #1 will go on sale on February 2nd.
