One book that made a huge impression on me back in the 80′s with their twelve-issue maxi-series was that of Squadron Supreme. The team has obviously gone through a few changes over the years and now post-Secret Wars they’re getting even more involved in things. The new series is kicking off on December 16th, 2015 from Marvel Comics with James Robinson writing and Leonard Kirk with the artwork, all wrapped up in some gorgeous covers from Alex Ross. Ahead of that, Marvel has now brought out a look at the finalized cover, a few preview pages, and the variants for the debut.
Plot concept: Each the sole survivor of a lost Earth, they’ll do anything to protect this one, whether you like it or not. Hyperion, Nighthawk, Dr. Spectrum, Blur and Power Princess – the Squadron Supreme. To them all that matters is the safety of Earth – and they don’t ask permission or care about your rules. Their first target? Namor! Responsible for the destruction of Dr. Spectrum’s reality, it’s time Namor paid for his crimes. And the Squadron will start by turning Atlantis to rubble!
The Marvel Universe has new protectors. Don’t miss their epic debut as they burst on to the scene in SQUADRON SUPREME #1 – on sale in December!
