Spinning out of the fan-favorite Supreme Power series is the new ongoing series Squadron Supreme. And in order to make Squadron Supreme #1 a "supreme" launch, Marvel is releasing a variant cover as well as a variant sketch cover by superstar artist Simone Bianchi.
No longer a MAX title, Squadron Supreme will continue the story of the Supreme Universe started in Supreme Power. The original Squadron Supreme ended up ruling the world. Does the creative team of J. Michael Straczynski and Gary Frank have a similar fate in store for this incarnation of the Squadron Supreme?
The cast of Supreme Power, including Hyperion, Nighthawk, Blur, Power Princess, Doctor Spectrum and others are being joined by a new group of super heroes to form the Squadron Supreme. The US government is looking to use the team to destroy threats both domestic and abroad, but Mark Milton's constant insubordination may lead the government to have to deal with the ever-growing threat of Hyperion, instead.
In order to spread the word about the launch of Squadron Supreme, Marvel is placing 4 preview pages from the first issue in several of the publisher's top selling titles. Not only is Squadron Supreme getting a variant cover, a variant sketch cover, and previews in top-selling books, but a Squadron Supreme poster is being released as well.
Be sure to make your comic experience "supreme" with the launch of Squadron Supreme this March.
Squadron Supreme #1, (JAN062014), is written by Straczynski with pencils and cover by Frank. It hits stands on March 22nd with a $2.99 retail price. The Bianchi Variant, (DEC058377D), will also hit stands on March 22nd.
