This isn’t your Squadron Supreme as Marvel Comics is setting an all new Secret Wars series with the June debut of Squadron Sinister. The new book comes from writer Marc Guggenheim (Arrow Executive Producer) and artist Carlos Pacheco (Captain America) that’s going to delve into “an epic crime story of superpowered proportions!”
“[Squadron Sinister] is very much in keeping with a crime drama,” says writer Marc Guggenheim in an interview with Marvel.com. “A lot of my touchstones were the Godfather movies and ‘Sons of Anarchy,’ ‘The Sopranos’. You know, that very criminal centric drama that shows that heavy is the head that wears the crown.”
Plot concept: Hyperion, Nighthawk, Whizzer, Doctor Spectrum and Warrior Woman. Together they make up the deadliest team of villains Battleworld has ever seen. Lording over their domain of Utopolis, they dispense devastating justice to any and all in their path. But will controlling just Utopolis be enough to feed their lust for power?
But threats from without and threats from within seek to undo everything Hyperion and his gang have built. Rulers from other domains mobilize against these superpowered aggressors. Devastating lies and secrets from within the Squadron itself may tear the team asunder. And seeds sown here bear bitter fruit for the future of the Marvel Universe. The measuring stick for evil just changed – and these five titans are it!
