Marvel's Greatest Heroes Will Face Their Biggest Enemies This July in 'Acts of Evil'

Ms. Marvel, Venom, and the Punisher will meet their dastardly matches!

Marvel's stable of Super Heroes have all met multiple villains with whom they've had to contend. But this summer, some of Marvel's mightiest will come face-to-face with enemies they haven't met yet. Coming this July, ACTS OF EVIL will pit Ms. Marvel, Venom, and the Punisher against first-time foes in their own annual issues. But while Marvelites can expect a trio of battles for the ages, they may see an outcome they were never expecting!

“You know what everyone says is worse than the devil? The devil you don’t know!” teases editor Kathleen Wisneski. “For ACTS OF EVIL, Marvel is pitting our heroes against villains they’ll never see coming, and we’ve lined up creative teams with fresh takes on these characters to make sure our fans are just as blindsided. So readers should steel themselves! And make sure they don’t miss the launch of the next legendary rivalry, or hints at a Super Villain’s next masterstroke…”

In MS. MARVEL ANNUAL #1: MS. MARVEL VS. SUPER SKRULL, written by Magdalene Visaggio with art by Jon Lim and a cover by Stefano Caselli, Kamala Khan will fight Super Skrull.
