Spinning out of Marvel’s 2020 event Empyre, comes the newest super team, The Union.
The Union, a team of heroes from all hail from the United Kingdom, will be written by Paul Grist (Judge Dredd, Jack Staff) with art by Andrea Di Vito (Annihilation).
Led by Union Jack, this host of spectacular new heroes will band together just in time to take on the galactic threat coming in, but that is only the start of this team’s epic adventures.
“40 years ago, Roger Stern and John Byrne introduced a new Union Jack into the pages of Captain America! This is the comic I’ve been waiting 40 years to write! “New heroes! New adventures! And a team that’s falling apart before it’s even begun!”
Joining Union Jack will be the best heroes the UK has to offer, including Snakes from Northern Ireland, Kelpie from Scotland, The Choir from Wales, and their fearless leader, the legendary Britannia!
The new heroes are designed by hit artist R.B. Silva (Powers of X), who was delighted to provide dynamic looks for the whole cast!
In a press release from Marvel the artist talked about the new character designs:
“I really like Medieval themes. With Britannia and Kelpie, I wanted them to look like medieval warriors and I just simplified and modernized it from there. For Snakes, I thought of the visual for the Executioner. Someone the enemy will fear from just a look. And for the Choir, more of a light visual, something that can enable quick movements. On her knife, I put 3 dragon’s heads. I know on Wales’ flag they have a dragon with only one head, but I thought, why not three?”
Along with his eye-popping character designs, Silva also provides the covers.
