Late last week a Marvel editor teased what appeared to be a new event, Acts of Evil. Looking at the logo teased, one wouldn’t be blamed for thinking that the event may be related to the 1989 crossover event, Acts of Vengeance. It seems that thought may be well-founded. Although it was explicitly said that Acts of Evil is tied to the previous event, the premise sounds similar:
Marvel’s most iconic heroes meet their match against some of Marvel’s most vicious villains in a fight that can only be known as ACTS OF EVIL! From Ms. Marvel to Venom, epic encounters will ensue as Marvel’s greatest heroes battle against enemies they have never faced before – leading to an outcome that no one will expect!
The first three titles being teased appear in regular title’s annuals this July. We’re not sure if the event will only affect annuals, but we guess we’ll just have to find out.
