The Final Battle Begins! Your First Look at ORIGINAL SIN #7!




All roads have been leading to this! Today, Marvel is proud to present your first look at ORIGINAL SIN #7 – the penultimate chapter from New York Times Bestselling writer Jason Aaron (Thor: God of Thunder) and critically acclaimed artist Mike Deodato (New Avengers). The shocking final page of last issue kept fans on the edge of their seats, and now as Original Sin races towards its epic climax – the heroes of the Marvel Universe prepare for their final stand against…Nick Fury?

Operating in the shadows, Nick Fury has protected the Marvel Universe from unseen forces. Protecting the Marvel Universe by any means necessary, Fury has “guarded the wall” for decades right under the noses of both S.H.E.I.L.D. and the Avengers. Now, drained of the Infinity Formula that kept him youthful, the battle-hardened soldier is rapidly aging, his time left short. But his job is never done…

He’ll stop at nothing to protect the Marvel Universe from what’s coming – even if he has to go through the Avengers to do it! Armed with the Watcher’s eyes, the secrets and sins of the entire Marvel Universe are now at his disposal. The knowledge Uatu kept could now be their very undoing! How can anyone stand up against a tactical genius with access to all the heroes greatest weaknesses?
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
The series that critics have hailed “a riveting thriller” and “one hell of a story” is approaching the heart-stopping climax no fan can afford to miss. Open your eyes wide for ORIGINAL SIN #7 when it hits comic shops this August!
                                                                                                                                                     
Everybody has one. This is Marvel’s ORIGINAL SIN!
