Official Press Release

World War Hulk continues, as the Hulk continues to smash anything that comes his way and the odds are stacked against the heroes defending the island of Manhattan!

In Avengers: The Initiative #5, written by Dan Slott and illustrated by Stefano Caselli, the team of new recruits heads into the war zone to save innocent lives, but they might have to look after themselves first when they come face to face with the Green King! Plus, Hardball must cope with the fact that the S.P.I.N. Tech he stole from Stark's lab was the one weapon that could have stopped the rampaging monster dead in his tracks. Meanwhile, Henry Gyrich dispatches the Shadow Initiative to deal with the Hulk, but who are these questionable heroes? Constrictor? Bengal? One…two…three enigmatic Iron Spiders? A line-up like this makes the Thunderbolts look like the Mighty Avengers! And the most terrible secret of all – who is Mutant Zero? Perhaps the rumors of a 199th mutant are true after all…

Critics continue to praise Avengers: The Initiative, with Newsarama.Com' s Troy Brownfield saying, "If you're already reading Mighty [Avengers] and New [Avengers] . . .or even if you aren't . . . you need to take some Initiative."

Meanwhile, World War Hulk: Front Line #4 smashes into stores, written by Paul Jenkins and boasting a trio of talented artists including: Ramon Bachs, Shawn Martinbrough (Detective Comics), and Chris Moreno (Sidekick). Front Line reporters Ben Urich and Sally Floyd continue their journey through the war-bound Harlem as they watch the Hulk swat General Ross's helicopters like so many pesky flies. Also, Detective Danny Granville is hot on the case of Arch-E-237's killer with the help of Korg! What is in store for these two duos of brave investigators?

With the tides of battle in the Hulk's favor, will everyone just stand-by and watch as the Hulk takes over? Pick up Avengers: The Initiative #5 and World War Hulk: Front Line #4 to find out the next step in the war that's changing the Marvel Universe!
