Who will take on Knull and his symbiotes when they invade Earth in December’s King in Black from Marvel Comics? Well… it will have to be a Union of heroes… (see what I did there?)
In December, writer Paul Grist and artist Andrea Di Vito bring readers The Union, a team of British super heroes who will take on Knull and his symbiote dragons.
The Union is led by the beloved Britannia, the noble warrior-hero who has long stood as a beacon for all that is best and bright in these historic isles. But despite the Project’s best efforts, these heroes aren’t quite what they seem, and Britannia may have her work cut out for her!
In addition to Union Jack, readers everywhere will soon meet exciting new UK-based heroes such as:
The Choir, a victim of scientific experiments who became a living weapon with sonic abilities: whether that’s subtle sounds to disorient people’s brains, or screams that could knock over buildings! The most tragic member of the team, she finds it hard to trust others.
Kelpie, an ancient water demon who can turn her body to water and has control over water around her. Though she seems light and breezy, she may be the most volatile member of the team.
Snakes, the muscle of the team…but also the most mysterious. He’s a man of few words–probably because he’s a telepath to boot! People are uncomfortable around him. Is he a man to be trusted?
And of course, Britannia, one of Britain’s oldest heroes. She symbolizes all that’s bright and good about Britain. If she can’t whip these heroes into a team, no one can!
