Marvel has released an event trailer for the upcoming Heroes Reborn series which starts in May.
- By asking “Whatever happened to Earth’s mightiest heroes?” Marvel teased the return of Heroes Reborn and revealed a logo for the new books.
- Marvel fans may recall an event of the same name in 1996 which saw many of the most iconic Marvel heroes relaunched after a battle with Onslaught. There were changes to some Marvel heroes that were controversial to most fans, including characters' origins and histories that were revised and updated circa the mid-1990s for modern audiences. The series did not last past 1997.
- The release this year falls in line with the 25th anniversary of the original event in 1996.
- In the new series, Squadron Supreme takes up the hero mantle as they face off against “Earth’s Mightiest Villains.”
- Marvel has announced that the finale of the Heroes Reborn story will be released in June with Heroes Return #1.
- The oversized finale will reveal the fate of the new Marvel Universe, a world without Avengers and Squadron Supreme taking their place.
The series begins this May with Heroes Reborn #1 and ends with Heroes Return #1 in June.
