He has helmed a renaissance for Marvel’s popular Avengers franchise, writing every issue of New Avengers and launching Avengers, Mighty Avengers and Dark Avengers. He has also written the event projects House of M, Secret War, Secret Invasion and Siege. Bendis is one of the architects of Marvel’s Ultimate line of comics, having written every issue of Ultimate Spider-Man since its launch in 1999, as well as Ultimate Fantastic Four, Ultimate X-Men, Ultimate Marvel Team-Up, Ultimate Origin, Ultimate Six and the Ultimate Enemy trilogy. The introduction of multiracial Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales made USA Today’s front page and went on to become a hotbed topic on Fox News, CNN, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Howard Stern Show and more. Bendis’ creator-owned projects include Scarlet with Alex Maleev, Brilliant with Mark Bagley, the Eisner Award-winning Powers with Mike Oeming and the Hollywood tell-all Fortune and Glory.

Hired by Marvel on the strength of his Official Marvel Tryout penciling submission, Mark Bagley initially worked on such relatively obscure titles as Nightmask , Visionaries and Strikeforce: Morituri, but rose to prominence as the artist of 1990s sleeper hit New Warriors. Following an acclaimed run on Amazing Spider-Man, he worked with writer Kurt Busiek on Thunderbolts. When Marvel launched its Ultimate line, Bagley and Brian Michael Bendis led the way with Ultimate Spider-Man, whose years of success made the pair the longestrunning creative team in Marvel history.

All hope lies in Doom! In a frantic flight from Annihilus’ insectoid forces, Valeria teleported the Future Foundation and the Baxter Building’s top three floors to Latveria. Now, the kids have nobody to turn to but Latveria’s iron-fisted ruler — Dr. Doom! That Val would have orchestrated everything to happen this way would be unthinkable. Unthinkable, that is, until she starts whispering secrets into the ear of “Uncle Doom.” Writer Jonathan Hickman continues his unprecedented exploration of Marvel’s extended First Family as the FF mixes it up with an evil otherdimensional Reed Richards, a doomsday collective of Mad Celestials, and a very hungry Galactus — all setting up an endgame beyond imagination!

Jonathan Hickman’s epic story reaches its stunning climax! Earth is under simultaneous attack on multiple fronts. As the Future Foundation and its allies struggle to hold back the Kree Armada, Annihilus’ Negative Zone forces prepare to enter our universe through a portal in the Baxter Building. And a fate far worse is coming. If Earth is to be saved, it will take help from Galactus, the return of an old friend — and a miracle. COLLECTING: Fantastic Four 600-604

Wolverine’s past is full of nasty characters — but few as fiendish as the White Ghost, a murderous mercenary whom Wolverine thought he’d left for dead during his spy years! But this Ghost won’t be laid to rest until he’s run Wolverine through a gauntlet of Adamantium weapons, killing the mutant maverick with the very metal that saved his life so many times! Unwilling to risk his friends, Wolverine stands alone in a story of intrigue, romance and devastation, culminating in a clash between two killers!

Based at the new Jean Grey School for Higher Learning, Rogue leads a squad of veteran X-Men charged with teaching — and safeguarding — the next generation of mutants. But that proves to be no easy task when new threats emerge every day at the school, from the interdimensional demons known as the N’Garai to an out-of-control Weapon Omega. And the deadliest enemy of all may be the near-omnipotent mutant called Exodus, who blames Wolverine and his team for the schism that split the X-Men in two, and he’ll do everything in his vast power to reunite the species — including removing anyone who stands in his way.

Remender served as writer on hit video games Dead Space and Bulletstorm, while providing art for punk/metal bands like NOFX and 3 Inches of Blood. He’s cocreated many popular independent titles, including the critically acclaimed Fear Agent with longtime collaborators Tony Moore and Jerome Opeña. His time at Marvel started on Punisher and has since led him to well-received runs on Uncanny X-Force and Venom.

Artist John Cassaday’s collaboration with writer Joss Whedon on Astonishing X-Men further enhanced the artist’s already impressive resume. Lauded as “an illustration god” by Warren Ellis and “an opalescent talent” by legendary author Alan Moore, Cassaday continues to be an impressive force in the industry. Cassaday’s work on Astonishing X-Men and WildStorm’s Planetary garnered him an unprecedented three consecutive Eisner Awards for Best Artist; Astonishing also won for Best Continuing Series. In addition to his work with Whedon, Cassaday has contributed to the Marvel Knights Captain America series and the Captain America: Fallen Son miniseries, as well as providing covers and design work for the revamped Lone Ranger series published by Dynamite Entertainment. Cassaday has participated in a cross-Atlantic project, illustrating I Am Legion for the French publisher Humanoids, available in America through Devil’s Due.

Jonathan Hickman is the award-winning writer/ artist of critically acclaimed independent titles Pax Romana, Transhuman and The Nightly News, a six-part series analyzing the powerful influence of the mainstream media on life in the 21st century. His work for Marvel includes stories published in the anthologies Legion of Monsters, Astonishing Tales and Strange Tales. Teaming with writer Brian Michael Bendis, he launched Secret Warriors, spinning out of Secret Invasion. He has also scribed the Dark Reign: Fantastic Four miniseries, which served as a warm-up for his runs on Fantastic Four and FF, and two S.H.I.E.L.D. series. One of Marvel’s cornerstone writers, Hickman helped launch the Ultimate Universe into its second decade with Ultimate Comics Ultimates, Ultimate Thor and Ultimate Comics Hawkeye.

Jerome Opeña developed his fluid art style across two separate continents. Born in the Philippines and raised in Taiwan before moving to the United States at 16, the artist counts Bill Sienkiewicz, Bill Watterson, Arthur Adams and Walter Simonson as his biggest influences; to this day, he goes back to the classic G.I. Joe #21 (the silent issue) for storytelling inspiration. After studying at the Academy of Art in San Francisco, Opeña worked on several short stories, including contributions to the French anthology Métal Hurlant and the popular Star Wars franchise. The artist broke through courtesy of his work on Fear Agent with Rick Remender, leading the team to well-received runs on Marvel’s relaunched Punisher and Uncanny X-Force.

His previous writing credits include the critically lauded Phonogram, Thor, S.W.O.R.D. and Generation Hope.

Next up was a run on Ultimate Fantastic Four that included the first rendering of the Marvel Zombies. Subsequently, Land penciled the blockbuster limited series Ultimate Power before becoming a regular artist on Uncanny X-Men.

David Lizewski has taken a horrifying and exhilarating plunge. Armed with minimal combat training and a pair of batons, he donned a mask and set out to become a real super hero, Kick-Ass. And he succeeded. Wildly. Kick-Ass and ’tween black belt Hit-Girl took on the Mafia — and won. The idea went viral. Suddenly, it became fashionable to put on a costume. Everyone wanted to be a super hero. The next logical step for Kick-Ass? Join a super-hero team. But Kick-Ass’ former ally, Red Mist, thinks heroes are passé. Red Mist will be the world’s most notorious super villain. When he targets Kick-Ass’ family, can Kick-Ass stop Red Mist and his team of villains? And when the conflict becomes a massive-scale riot in Times Square, can Kick-Ass survive being a hero?

One last heist. That’s what they all say, right? Just one final score, and everyone can retire and take up fishing. Thing is, the jails are filled with super villains who thought the same thing and got busted. But the Heat’s in a jam. He’s run up the kind of gambling debt that — if he can’t pay it back in cash — will be paid in blood. Nobody wants to see the most beloved supercrook of all time rubbed out by the mob — especially his biggest fan, Johnny Bolt. And Johnny’s got a plan to help the Heat and make all his buddies disgustingly rich at the same time. Unfortunately for Johnny’s recruits, they have to head to Spain and rob the world’s most notorious super villain blind. And that’s where things get tricky.
