May 3's New Marvel Comics: The Full List

Meet Misery, return to the Spider-Verse, behold a major status quo shakeup for the X-Men, and more in this week's comics!

Cletus Kasady is back and badder than ever in this week's Marvel Comics!

With his soul trapped within the Extrembiote Armor created by Tony Stark during KING IN BLACK, Cletus has the means to level an untold amount of chaos and, well, carnage on New York City and the entire Marvel Universe. But like any good Tony Stark invention, the Extremis coursing through Cletus' symbiotic veins needs power, and that means Cletus is hungry. Good thing Brooklyn's very own Spider-Man is there to stand in his way in CARNAGE REIGNS ALPHA (2023) #1! If he survives their first encounter, that is.

Be there when Miles Morales takes on Carnage in CARNAGE REIGNS ALPHA (2023) #1, on sale this Wednesday, May 3!

And Carnage won't be the only symbiote catching some action this week! Liz Allan is the mother of Normie Osborn, who she is blissfully unaware is the all-new and all-deadly Red Goblin. But what Liz does know is that the Red Goblin has been active and has been seen very close to her home. After her late husband's father, Norman Osborn (maybe you've heard of him?), gets pulled into the chaos and violence swirling around Normie, Liz has no choice but to use the resources at her disposal as the head of Alchemax to take matters into her own hands and become something the Marvel Universe has never seen before in CULT OF CARNAGE: MISERY (2023) #1 by Sabir Pirzada and Francesco Mortarino.

Then, return to the Spider-Verse for more symbiote mayhem in EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE (2023) #1, where Spider-Rex faces the Venomsaurus! Plus: Who is the Spider-Killer?! Zander Cannon introduces the world to the scariest Spider-Character ever created! Bringing your favorite breakout characters back, as well as introducing brand new Spiders who will blow your mind!

This week, Groot also gets to star in his very own series: GROOT (2023) #1. Before he was a Guardian of the Galaxy…before the Grootfall…young Groot lived a life of tranquility on his serene home world. But when monstrous invaders attack his planet, Groot must accept his heroic destiny! Will this destiny lead him to come to blows with a young Kree soldier by the name of Mar-Vell? Join writer Dan Abnett and artist Damian Couceiro as they reveal never-before-seen moments of Groot's origin and first adventure through the galaxy!

Meanwhile, Peach Momoko hurtles towards the cataclysmic conclusion of her epic DEMON WARS saga in DEMON WARS: SCARLET SIN (2023) #1. The yokai are at war, and Mariko Yashida, descendent of the Oni King, has to choose a side. The fates of the spirit world and the human world hang in the balance. But things just got complicated thanks to the appearance of a mysterious yokaii with incredible power. This Yokai has a scheme of her own, and she wants to paint the world…scarlet.

Additionally, witness a battle of the titans of the X-Universe in X-MEN: BEFORE THE FALL - SONS OF X (2023) #1 ! A man of innumerable personalities and powers vs. the most powerful artificial intelligence in this universe: Legion vs. Nimrod! With Nightcrawler in Orchis' clutches, David Haller and his allies will have to confront the mastermind who destroyed Warlock and nearly took Krakoa with him. But Nightcrawler is not himself... and Legion's allies aren't all they seem to be either. Mutant monsters roam the Earth... Banshee, broken once again, dreams of lost vengeance... Mother Righteous, her role in SINS OF SINISTER unrevealed, takes another stab at universal control... Si Spurrier and Phil Noto usher in new status quos for some of your favorite X-Men in this can't-miss one-shot!
