WAR OF THE REALMS #1 hits this Tuesday night with a special MIDNIGHT release! Find out why this is the biggest event Marvel has done since Jonathan Hickman’s epic SECRET WARS!

A Marvel epic that spans the Marvel Universe’s multiverse, and then some — do NOT sleep on WAR OF THE REALMS!
Holy crap, Third Eye Faithful — we’re telling you right now: Marvel is coming at 2019 hard with WAR OF THE REALMS, and it’s shaping up to be the biggest, most exciting crossover they’ve done since Jonathan Hickman turned the Marvel Universe upside down in SECRET WARS a few years back!
With a story that’s been quietly brewing for years under the surface of all the major Marvel events, and throughout the entirety of Jason Aaron’s THOR run, WAR OF THE REALMS not only promises to deliver an immense payoff for those of you who’ve been reading since the very start with THOR GOD OF THUNDER — but, also provides the perfect new reader-friendly jumping on point for those of you who’ve been looking for a killer place to dive headfirst back into the Marvel Universe after the post-SECRET WARS era!

It’s no secret that since the beginning of 2018, Marvel has been doing an amazing job with their new slate of titles, like Donny Cates VENOM, Al Ewing’s Immortal Hulk, and of course, Jason Aaron’s AVENGERS, but we’re telling you right now: it’s all building to THE WAR OF THE REALMS, and it’s gonna kick so much ass!

What’s the scoop on WAR OF THE REALMS? Asgard. Alfheim. Heven. Jotunheim. Muspelheim. Niffleheim. Nidavellir. Svartalfheim. Vanaheim.
All of the Ten Realms have fallen to Malekith and his army…except one: Midgard. Home to Thor’s beloved humans. Home to heroes and gods alike. Now, at last, it burns. And Thor won’t even be there to see it.
Malekith the Dark Elf has been rampaging across the Realms for years, and now he’s coming for Midgard. There, the Super Heroes of the Marvel Universe make their final stand, and a war begins.
So, why is Captain America riding a winged horse? Where does Jane Foster come into play? How does Wolverine get involved? Why does Daredevil have a sword…and why is he covered in starry lights? The Punisher, Luke Cage, Iron Fist; how do these street-level heroes join the fight? How do Venom, She-Hulk, Black Panther, Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider, and so many more team-up for the war? And is that Blade!?

“I have been building towards WAR OF THE REALMS for the entire duration of my THOR run. So we’re talking six years and 80-something issues and counting,” teases Aaron. “This is a war that covers the entire globe and involves the biggest heroes of the Marvel Universe, as you can see in this amazing promo piece by my MIGHTY THOR collaborators, Russell Dauterman and Matthew Wilson, who I’m so thrilled to be working with again on WAR OF THE REALMS.”
Third Eye Faithful, if DC Comics raised the ante of what a universe-spanning event could be with 2017’s DARK NIGHTS METAL — then you better believe that MARVEL is stepping up to the challenge, and delivering a storyline that rivals the scale and scope of METAL and then some!
Not since SECRET WARS have we been this excited for a Marvel event, and for good reason: Jason Aaron is one of the best writers in comics, and he’s literally spent nearly a decade playing in the THOR sandbox, building a fully realized mythology that’s set to pour out onto the Marvel Universe as we know it.

You wanna see Frost Giants in Manhattan? You wanna see your favorite Marvel heroes and villains finding themselves in the midst of pure otherworldly Asgardian (and other realms!) chaos on Earth? This is the book!
And, this isn’t just for THOR fans — this is something that touches on, and spotlights all of the Marvel Universe’s mightiest heroes, as well as some of your cult favorite characters! Trust us: this is the definition of big, sprawling, awesome Marvel event goodness!
So, what else can we tell you about WAR OF THE REALMS? Well, read on Third Eye Faithful, and we’ll give you the full scoop!

Where will the WAR OF THE REALMS take us?! First Conan –then what?

So, with the WAR OF THE REALMS taking us through all the various REALMS of the Marvel Universe… and, deeper into the Marvel multiverse, we can only wonder where it’s going to take us — and that’s a big part of the fun of this series!

We already know that the AVENGERS are going to find themselves face to face with the one and only CONAN THE BARBARIAN in the Hyborian Age…. so, could we possibly see…. a Galaxy Far, Far Away?
We don’t know this for sure, and it’s purely Third Eye getting nerdy and coming up with some crazy theories, but hey — it could happen, right? 🙂
Just a disclaimer: pure speculation on our part! 🙂
