Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting offer us the defining story of the rise of the superhumans, beginning in 1939 — revealing the hidden connections that unite the earliest costumed champions. In a world on the brink of war, the race is on to create the world’s first super-soldier! Witness the first days of the Human Torch, the Sub-Mariner, the Angel, Captain America and other Timely heroes — their origins, how they shaped the world to come, and how the future they would create in turn shaped them! A must-read saga for any Marvel fan, from the award-winning creators who redefined Captain America!

Who is the mysterious old man who lies on his deathbed in a hospital in 1939, and how does his passing mark the beginning of the first heroic age of the Marvel Universe? It’s the Two-Gun Kid…but how does he know about the future world and the heroes who are on the way? The doctor who talks to him is the man who becomes The Angel, who was cover featured on the earliest issues of Marvel Comics along with the Human Torch, Subby, etc.

You know if Ed Brubaker is writing, this is going to be a unique, fascinating take. Here we are in the increasingly dangerous pre-World War II world, as Nazis are still holding marches in New York and the U.S. is still reluctantly hearing of the atrocities in Europe. The Human Torch is an artificial man, trying to learn to control his power. Another early hero is in reality a newspaper reporter, and is suddenly killed. It’s a sobering experience as The Angel narrates the story from a very real reality, a new take on the award-winning Alex Ross Marvels.

Don’t miss this. Includes cool vintage-looking variant covers.
