MARVEL CELEBRATES 50 YEARS OF MAN-THING WITH NEW SERIES

It seems like only yesterday that the frightening Man-Thing first struck fear into the hearts of all who saw him. Can you believe it's been 50 years? Marvel Comics is celebrating this milestone with a new three-part series. Writer Steve Orlando makes his Marvel debut with Avengers: Curse of the Man-Thing, joined by artist Francesco Mobili with a cover by Daniel Acuña. The series spans the Marvel Universe, beginning with Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Each chapter will focus on a different space.

For decades, the Man-Thing has haunted the Florida Everglades. Now a new enemy has hijacked his body on a quest to take his incendiary abilities global! The Marvel Universe wakes to fear as gargantuan monoliths menace cities worldwide, with only the Avengers standing between the population of Earth and a planetwide inferno. Can they save Man-Thing in time to douse the fires? And does the man inside the thing, Ted Sallis, even want to be saved? All this plus a sensational new villain designed by Marvel’s Stormbreaker Carmen Carnero await readers in the exciting opening tale that will kick off an unforgettable journey for Man-Thing and your favorite Marvel heroes including the X-Men, Spider-Man, and more!
 
“It's a huge honor to be asked to make my debut as part of a character's anniversary. There's an incredible amount of faith and opportunity there, and it's something I never take lightly!” Orlando told Bloody Disgusting in an exclusive interview. “It is honestly amazing to be welcomed to Marvel and tell this nailbiter of a story that's going to remind people just how unique Man-Thing is. He'll be better positioned than ever to shock and scare readers and villains alike, but first he'll have to survive an attack that cuts him to his core and sets the Marvel Universe ablaze.”
 
“If you like super heroes and the supernatural, you’ll LOVE this high octane celebration of one of Marvel’s strangest characters,” Editor Mark Paniccia said. “It feels like its own big event. And Steve’s epic story will reveal, amongst other things, an unexpected new dimension of the Marvel Universe.”

But that's not all! Marvel will also celebrate the character with a line of variant covers, each features a Marvel hero transformed into Man-Thing personas. Check out the listing below.
