Tying into their mega event of the summer, "Original Sin," Marvel has released details on the five issue mini-series, "Original Sins." The focus of "Original Sins" is to show how the events of "Original Sin" affect the members of the Marvel Universe who do not have their own series and do not pay a major role in the main storyline of "Who killed The Watcher?"
"Original Sins" #1 sees the return of Deathlok to the Marvel Universe. Fans of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." may be familiar with the name of the cyborg super-hero, but the comics version differs slightly from the TV version. In Marvel comics, the most popular Deathlok is Michael Collins, a Philadelphia native and transplant to New York City, where he worked for the Cybertek Corporation responsible for turning him into Deathlok.
Marvel describes Deathlok's story in the series:
Who is Deathlok? Rising star writer Nathan Edmondson (Black Widow, The Punisher) and fan-favorite artist Mike Perkins expose the secrets of the cyborg super-soldier! But all is not as it seems. And a hidden truth will finally be revealed, setting the stage for Deathlok’s return to the forefront of the Marvel Universe!
Additional stories in the first issue of "Original Sins" include the Young Avengers (by Ryan North and Ramon Villalobos) and the Inhumans' Lockjaw (by Stuart Moore and Rick Geary). The second issue of the series features stories starring the Black Knight, the Young Avengers and Howard the Duck.
"Original Sins" #1 hits comic shops June 11. Witness the rebirth of Philly's Deathlok! To find a comic book store near you, go to www.comicshoplocator.com.
