First Look: ORIGINAL SIN #0

Who shot the Watcher?

This April, the biggest Marvel Universe series of the year kicks off in ORIGINAL SIN #0 – from Eisner Award-Winning writer Mark Waid and blockbuster artist Jim Cheung!

Who shot the Watcher? And who now holds the deepest, darkest secrets of the Marvel Universe? All will be answered in Original Sin! But first – who is the Watcher? That’s what Nova is wondering after his latest brush with the moon-dwelling enigma he’s encountered before!

“If you know nothing about Uatu, or you’re not up on what his deal is right now, the story in Original Sin #0 will give you all of the information you need,” says Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort in an interview with Marvel.com. “[Presented] in the context of an emotionally affecting story featuring the Watcher and Nova – and leave you ready for him to turn up as a cold, dead corpse in Original Sin #1 and understand why that is so very unsettling and dangerous a situation.”

Join Nova as he uncovers a startling secret that will have a profound effect on the young hero, as well as prime the pump for the most cataclysmic event in Marvel history! The marquee comics event of the year kicks off this April in ORIGINAL SIN #0!

I'm normally very anti-events and crossovers, but I think I'm going to check this out. I love the idea of Jason Aaron writing a whodunnit with a bunch of secrets being exposed. Mike Deodato's art is icing on the cake as well.

My guess is, in the kitchen, with a candelabra.

Deadpool in Latveria with a Banana!

She-Hulk in the SHIELD helicarrier with the space gem.

Batman in the interdimensional transporter with a magic carpet?

Pumba in the Savage Land with Hakuna Matata...

One of these is bound to be right!

I love how marvel cleaning house on its stupid concepts. So here's a list so far of the stupid elements they've got finally got rid of:

Infinity Gems/Glove - Magic stones which make no sense which fit a human hand shaped glove. Destroyed in New Avengers

Galactus - Giant purple clothes wearing man who speaks English and eats planets - sent to insult to ultimate universe before being finally sent into the negative zone to die in Cataclysm

Phoenix - A fire bird that has the unexplained power to do anything (Like the infinity gems), likes to possesses human and do predictable things with them. Wiped out of existence at the end of Avengers vs X-Men

The Watcher - A man with a large head who speaks English and refuses to interfere but all ways does, sometimes just be showing up he interferes. He's gonna die in Original Sin

What is next the cosmic cube? (Aka the magic box that does exactly the same thing as infinity gems)

Too many tie-ins for this event, shocking

Posted by Teerack

Couldn't they just ask the Watchers wife? Doesn't she also watch?

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

I told myself I was going to stop buying events after Infinity to save money but...........I'm getting this............ out of respect for Uatu.

Posted by NoahMcnasty

hey look another event from marvel to follow the event that followed the previous event that came after the other event that was a sequel to the previous event that preceded that other event.

I'm guessing the Nova featured here is still Sam Alexander right?

In a funny way, the Watcher was like the doctor, from the way you look at it.

Unfortunately yeah

This looks interesting

Posted by Diasmosis

I'm looking forward to this, I'll not be getting all the tie-ins though. As someone relatively new to anything concerning the Watcher, are there any good backstories I can pick up in TPB form?
