Marvel announced Original Sin, a new eight issue megaevent starring the Watcher's corpse and a bunch of other superheroes.  The event will be helmed by Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato Jr., and will star a host of heroes led by Nick Fury Sr. trying to solve the Watcher's murder.  While Aaron declined to name the Watcher's murderer, you'll recall that we already spoiled his killer's identity in a previous article. 

According to an interview with USA Today, the Watcher kept numerous secrets about the Marvel Universe, and when those secrets are leaked to the Marvel Universe, heroes will have to deal with the fallout.  "What will happen when a character like Wolverine has a deep, really personal secret revealed about him that changes his entire relationship with women and bearded writers?" Aaron said in a quote that didn't appear in that interview or anywhere else.

However, not everyone is thrilled with the premise.  "I think it sucks," said Brian Bendis, whose often identified with the Watcher due him having a large, bald head.  

"I also think it sucks," said Outhouse writer Jeremy Shane, whose head is equally large and bald.

"I dinnae like it," said Grant Morrison, yet another bald, bigheaded comic book writer.

"Nope, not a fan," said Cullen Bunn, a newer inductee to the Bald Big Head Club.

"I hate it," said Brian K. Vaughan, yet another bald comic book writer.

"Me too," said Rob Williams, who's also bald, although his Twitter profile pic doesn't show it.

Despite the hatred from baldies everywhere, Original Sin #1 will be released in May 2014, with a prequel issue out in April written by Mark Waid with art by Jim Cheung.
