New on Marvel Unlimited: The Sorcerer Supreme taps into Asgard’s ancient power to take down the King in Black! Hearkening back to the transformation first seen in the pages of DOCTOR STRANGE (2015) #384, Stephen Strange relies on the Realm Eternal to empower his battle against the symbiotic menace Knull. After all, what is a god to a king? As New York’s heroes brace for impact in the penultimate issue to KING IN BLACK (issue #5 will hit MU this July!), the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man: Peter Parker, and even Namor ready their defenses for the war that could claim the world. Jean Grey fans, don’t miss issue #4 either—it’s a true psychic power play for the Omega-level telepath as she delves into Knull’s twisted mindscape.
