After Civil War and World War Hulk, what is a Marvel Universe to do? There is a top secret epic coming our way in 2008, and it all starts with the reveal of Ronin’s true identity in New Avengers #30. Marvel Comics has sent us a sneak peek of the issue.

The recent incarnation of the New Avengers doesn’t have it easy, forging their own underground movement against the Superhuman Registration act they consider unjust and finding themselves embroiled in conflicts with their former friends. But as readers will learn in New Avengers #30, it’s going to get worse before it gets better. As readers continue to learn how the New Avengers survived their conflict with Iron Man’s state-sponsored Mighty Avengers team in the past, they’ll also be thrilled to the New Avengers’ current conflict with the martial arts crime cabal known as the Hand! Throughout this top-selling story arc by award-winning writer Brian Bendis and red-hot artist Leinil Yu (one of Marvel’s Young Guns), fans have wondered just who is wearing the new Ronin armor and they’re about to find out in May.

    Somehow, the Mandarin is less threatening wearing toe rings like a mallrat named Brittnee.

    Well, yeah…but what I heard they got cooked up for him is way cooler. You want I should tell you? This is Major Spoilers…

    And, hey, the only reason I like it is because I’m tossing my new catchphrase at you like so much confetti: Salieri is WEIRD, Mister! WEIRD!

    Maybe the rings will be affixed to his teeth, giving the Mandarin a mad grill the likes of which the late great Ol’ Dirty Bastard could only have dreamed?
