Marvel Reveals The New ‘Illuminati’

Honestly, I’ve never sparked to The Hood. But when one of DC’s most popular titles is Suicide Squad and one of their best is Secret Six, it makes sense for Marvel to try this. And it is an interesting idea.

Will it be more than a miniseries? Who knows? I thought Thunderbolts would fold after  12 issues, and the title kept getting infusions of cool ideas. We shall see…

From Marvel:

Bad guys win every day. And this November, that day has come for this team of villains. Today, Marvel is pleased to present your new look at ILLUMINATI #1 – the new ongoing series from writer Joshua Williamson and artist Shawn Crystal! How do the villains of the Marvel Universe live in a world where the sky is constantly filled with heroes? What do they do when they want out of a life of crime? There is no way out. No future. Till now.

Who saves the villains? The Hood does. And he wants everyone to have a place at the table. But first things first – he needs an army. With Titania, Mad Thinker, Thunderball, Black Ant and Enchantress at his side – the Hood might just have all the muscle he needs.

They don’t want to just survive – they want to thrive. By any means necessary. Be there as a new team of villains is formed this November in ILLUMINATI #1!
