Many industry pundits are saying that Marvel Comics has finally taken things too far in their latest promotion of a super-mega-crossover event. In order to generate publicity for their ongoing Inhumanity status quo altering meta-crossover, Marvel has reportedly released Terrigen Mists, a magical gas that mutates human beings with latent Inhuman genes into hideous monsters, into the sewers beneath their offices, causing widespread panic in New York City and the evacuation of a full city block between Sixth and Seventh Avenues on West 51st Street. Here's a video of the mists rising out from under the street, though the film did not capture any humans transforming into cocoons where there mutations will eventually take place:
In response to the crisis, many onlookers and passersby were heard to comment, "AAGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!" and "OH GOD!!! THE HORROR!!!" but it is unknown whether they were responding to the threat of being transformed into a barely recognizable, inhuman creature with strange and wondrous powers, or to the latest issue of Uncanny Avengers.
Luckily, no one has been hurt too bady, though the stunt has backfired somewhat on Marvel, who were forced to shut down their offices for the day as well. In a show of concern and sympathy for anyone affected by the event, Marvel associate editor Tom Brennan quickly ordered Marvel's freelance employees to get back to fucking work:
Attn freelancers: Marvel offices are closed due to a fire on our block. Anxieties will be solved if we find finished work in our mailboxes— Tom Brennan (@Brennanator) January 6, 2014
