A teaser sent out by Marvel yesterday warns readers to "be vigilant," we assume against hyperbole from Marvel's marketing juggernaut.
Source: Press Release
Marvel is currently publishing two super-mega-crossover event comics, Infinity and Battle of the Atom, which are sure to have long-lasting (read: until the next event) repercussions that will shake the Marvel Universe to it's very... ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
*snort* What? Oh? Sorry.
Anyway, it looks like they may be introducing a third Universe-altering story into the mix, as a new teaser was sent out yesterday, accompanied by the text, "The Marvel Universe is on the brink of a major change. Find out more, September 18th!" While not much information is revealed in the teaser, it does allow an unpaid intern at Marvel to show off their absolute mastery of the bevel and emboss tool, as well as the outer glow effect in Photoshop. The intern makes a pretty good smoke effect as well, and is extremely handy with a reflected gradient. Who is this talented digital artist?!
"They tell me to make words blue, like cold, icy winter," said Senior Design Intern Vlad Kozinkerov. "So that is what I do."
Is this referring to something that happens in one of the current events, or something new entirely? Will we see the introduction of a new character, the return of an old one, or the death of a current one? Maybe all three? The Outhouse will keep you updated, but please feel free to speculate by filling in the blank in the following sentence:
