First Look: ORIGINAL SINS #1

What sins do the characters in the Marvel universe hold?





FOC – 05/19/14, On-Sale 06/11/14

This June – the sins of the Marvel Universe extend much further than you can possibly imagine. Today, Marvel is proud to present your first look at ORIGINAL SINS #1 – the first in a 5-issue companion series exposing even more secrets than could be contained in Original Sin! Each issue of ORIGINAL SINS contains three all-new stories spotlighting fan-favorite characters throughout the Marvel Universe.

“Like the ultimate NSA leak, the Watcher – regardless of whether you’re a hero, villain, innocent bystander – the Watcher has seen everything you’ve done,” says Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “He’s seen it and he knows all, and there’s so much that affect so many players in the Marvel Universe that apart from the spine of the murder mystery proper [in Original Sin] and the impact on the characters that have their own titles, there was still grist to deal with characters of all sorts throughout the Marvel Universe.”

Who is Deathlok? Rising star writer Nathan Edmondson (Black Widow, The Punisher) and fan-favorite artist Mike Perkins expose the secrets of the cyborg super-soldier! But all is not as it seems. And a hidden truth will finally be revealed, setting the stage for Deathlok’s return to the forefront of the Marvel Universe!

Then, Eisner-award winning writer Ryan North (Dinosaur Comics, Adventure Time) and artist Ramon Villalobos (What If: Age of Ultron) follow the Young Avengers in the first of a 5-part serial running through each issue of ORIGINAL SINS. As Hulkling, Marvel Boy and Prodigy attempt to track down the super-powered crime-lord The Hood, even they’re not prepared for what they find. And for one Young Avenger, the death of the Watcher will become a very personal affair!

Finally, writer Stuart Moore joins prolific artist Rick Geary expose the secrets of the faithful Inhuman companion Lockjaw! And you won’t believe what he’s been keeping.

The Watcher saw all, and no fan can afford to miss exciting new stories featuring the most requested characters in the Marvel Universe when ORIGINAL SINS #1 hits comic shops and digital devices this June!

Love that Ms Marvel is central on the cover. Hope to be seeing lots of her, as this is her first major arc.

Seems kinds weird that Jonah is on the cover surrounded by all the heroes, though. And Dr Doom. Weirdness!

Deathlock looks awsesome

Posted by Wowlock

Retcons... retcons everywhere ! :D

Okay.... no no no no no NO. It is not acceptable to make Deathloks look like Mike Peterson now. NOT cool at all in any way what so ever.

Why this is so simillar to DC Futures End?

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

Wait I thought this was out already?

Posted by dreamfall31

So there's Original Sin and a series called Original Sins? Not confusing at all.

Posted by TimeLordScience

@gyardos: If anything Future's End is similar to Marvel's Age of Ultron, which is similar to just about a dozen other stories.

@teerack: I THOUGHT IT WAS BISHOP! OH CRUEL FATE! I liked AOS but I wanted Deathlok to look closer to the comics.

Is this Sinestro on cover...? o_O

Posted by cmaprice

Not a fan of the costume redesign on Deathlok. The classic look still works perfectly.

Edited by Legendary_StarHero

This could be interesting .

Agreed. Hopefully he gets half of his face melted off at some point and the metal gets exposed.

Somehow adding another letter makes it new and exciting. BUY DEM COMICS KIDS.

I'm irrationally anti this book because it has Doop on the cover. Doop in anything except X-Statix is awful.

This is a new one. There have been tons of Deathlok's. This new thing is not a Deathlok.

Edited by Ishkafel

Young Avengers and Lockjaw, I am intrigued

Posted by Dogofwarorion

Why is J.J.Jameson on the cover ? i think this is the real question here :p

Posted by Novemberx2

so we know lockjaw one will be a comedy, likely that lockjaw eats something or poo's on carpet and inhumans go " I wonder who did this?" while lockjaw disappears

Posted by MideonNViscera

I can't wait to discover all of Lockjaw's dirty secrets!

Posted by Ms-Lola

Doctor Doom being involved guarantees my interest. Original Sins (in plural) gets to me from a comprehension standpoint. Unnecessarily confusing.

That eye is still gross to me.
