It All Comes Together In SECRET EMPIRE OMEGA #1!

In the aftermath of Secret Empire, how will our heroes be changed?

New York, NY—July 14, 2017—In the aftermath of Secret Empire, one big question lingers in the minds of all the heroes of the Marvel Universe: what redemption can there be for Captain America?

“It’s not over yet! While Hydra may have fallen, there’s still a nation to rebuild, friends to be buried and an emotional toll to be tallied,” said SVP & Executive Editor, Tom Brevoort. “To say nothing of the question of what comes next for Steve Rogers—how can he possibly move forward, possibly be redeemed, after everything he’s just been through?”

But Captain America isn’t the only one who was changed under the Secret Empire regime. As the world rebuilds itself in the wake of Hydra, so do our heroes – what does it mean for Earth’s Mightiest? And how will it all end?

Don’t miss SECRET EMPIRE OMEGA #1, the epic wrap-up to the Secret Empire saga from writer Nick Spencer and artist Andrea Sorrentino. And watch the fate of your favorite heroes unfold in SECRET EMPIRE: AFTERMATH, in comic shops this fall!

Fans will also be able to engage in fun quizzes & puzzles, receive exclusive first-looks, and find their local comic shops.

“Marvel will always be on the forefront of exciting new ways for fans to experience the Marvel Universe,” said Julie Gerola, VP/GM Marketing & Digital Operations. “We are so excited to introduce a new way for our fans to engage directly with some of the Marvel characters during the events of SECRET EMPIRE and have the added ability to have their local comic shop’s location sent directly to fans so that they can further explore the entire Marvel Universe.”

The chatbot, produced in collaboration with Conversable Inc., leverages natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning to engage users with an entirely unique adventure written by Eisner Award-winning author, Jim McCann.

“Marvel is spanning the physical and the digital in a way that brings fans and their superheroes together from all corners of the Universe.
