Marvel Comics has been asking us to choose sides in these days before Civil War II, between Changing the Future and Protecting the Future, between Captain Marvel and Iron Man, but for some heroes, Hercules in particular, choosing sides isn’t that easy, especially with loyal friends on each side. Meet me after the jump for more details when Hercules enters Civil War II in June!
New York, NY – March 21st, 2016 – The world is on the brink of chaos. As friend stands against friend… on which side will the world’s very first super hero land? Find out as Hercules storms the front lines in CIVIL WAR II: GODS OF WAR #1 – a brand-new Civil War II series debuting this June from writer Dan Abnett and artist Emilio Laiso!
“Herc is loyal,” says writer Dan Abnett in an interview with Marvel.com. “Picking a side for him is a simple thing. But when the sides aren’t good and evil, that troubles him. To him, a [Civil War II] kind of rift where heroes are in conflict with other heroes – he’s got friends on both sides, and friends or not, he recognizes them all as fellow heroes – is just plain wrong.”
As Civil War II grips the Marvel Universe, Hercules will ask himself – what role should a God play in the conflict. Is he responsible for a larger role in the potential destruction of the Marvel Universe? Or does he have the power to change fate and alter the course of history? Joined by Gilgamesh, Sigurd, Lorelei, Beowulf and Theseus – Hercules and his pantheon of ancient comrades charge headlong into a battle for the soul of the Marvel Universe. But who’s side are they on?
The Gods are marching to war. Be there as the battle kicks off in CIVIL WAR II: GODS OF WAR #1 – coming this June!
