Official Press Release


The Civil War is over and the Pro-Registration heroes led by Iron Man have prevailed. Now, the Initiative has begun and is in full-effect in the pages of Iron Man #15, on-sale now, where Tony Stark has taken over as the new Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Plus, the shockwaves from the end of Civil War continue to be felt throughout the Marvel Universe in two Civil War epilogues as Ben Urich and Sally Floyd reveal the traitor of the Pro-Registration forces in Civil War Front Line #11 and Black Panther and Storm tackle the clone of Thor on Civil War's final battlefield in Black Panther #25.

If you thought Civil War changed the Marvel Universe, you will not want to miss the Initiative titles on-sale next week because even more earth-shattering status quo changes are in store for your favorite heroes.

Civil War: The Initiative, written by Brian Bendis and Warren Ellis with art by Marc Silvestri, introduces the new directions for Iron Man, the Mighty Avengers, the New Avengers, the Thunderbolts as well as the first appearance of the new Omega Flight.

Captain America #25 kicks off an incredibly shocking new era for Steve Rogers following his imprisonment at the end of Civil War that will have comicdom talking for months to come.

And pick up Fantastic Four #543 as a new chapter begins for the First Family of Comics as Reed, Sue, Ben, and Johnny come together to decide if the Fantastic Four is really no more. Who comes? Who goes? You can only find out in Fantastic Four #543.

And in two weeks, Civil War: The Confession hits stand by Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev as the Eisner Award-Winning creative team bring to you the two heroes most affected by Civil War coming together one last time. You must read this issue to see where they go from here!
