If you are wondering who the Mystery Men are, and how Marvel isn’t going to get sued over using the name/title of a previously published work, take the jump for a sneak peek of the five issue mini-series.


MYSTERY MEN #1 (of 5) (APR110620)
Written by DAVID LISS
Pencils & Covers by PATRICK ZIRCHER
Before Captain America, before The Twelve, there was The Aviatrix, The Operative, Achilles, The Revenant and The Surgeon! What drives these five heroes to pull on masks and take to the rooftops of Manhattan? What dark conspiracy not only brings them together, but threatens to tear the America apart?  On the hunt to solve a brutal murder, our champions will smash their way from gleaming penthouses of privilege to squalid alleyways, as the full horror of their enemies’ schemes unfolds! Get ready for an action packed, edge-of-your-seat and in-continuity super hero adventure like no other when Marvel’s first champions take the case this June, only in Mystery Men #1 (of 5)!

Mystery Men #1 has a $2.99 cover price and arrives June 08, 2011.

    The Surgeon? Taking a scalpel to the bad guys? Huh?

    Sounds, and looks promising. I am willing to give this a shot.

      I’m with you, Gilberto. The Twelve was an excellent series. The writing was tighter than a dress on Kelly Bundy.
      I’ll give this one a shot, though. If they have my attention after only 8 pages, let’s see what they can do with more.

      Yeah, well, being Marvel and cancelling great books they’ll have to cancel this one after only 2 or 3 books.
