Just in case you were fearing that the Heroic Age was going to keep everything light and fun, Marvel's been putting out teasers for the upcoming story, Shadowland, which begins in July. Yesterday we saw Daredevil in his darker uniform with the Hand. Today we see a bunch of the heroes getting ready to take on the evil.
What will this mean for the rest of the Marvel Universe? You can see in this image that Daredevil isn't the only one involved. There will be other characters involved. Shadowland will be written by Andy Diggle with pencils by Billy Tan and is a five issue mini-series.
Like most Marvel teasers, we don't know a whole lot about what's going on. The solicit for Shadowland #1 says the following:
== TEASER ==
Matt Murdock Dared Evil…and Lost! The battle for the soul of a hero begins! Pushed beyond his limits, Daredevil faces off for a final time against his deadliest foe--Bullseye-- in their most brutal battle ever with more than just Hell’s Kitchen is at stake.

This event will change the streets of New York City—and the heroes that protect it—forever. Plus, a jaw-dropping final page that will have everyone talking for years to come!
