The Heroes of 'A.X.E.: Judgment Day' Get the Spotlight in New Covers by Lucas Werneck and Ashley Witter

Check out the first four covers in a new variant cover collection for the upcoming Marvel Comics event, 'A.X.E.: Judgment Day'

Judgment Day is approaching! Kicking off in July, the Avengers, the Eternals, and the X-Men find themselves in conflict in A.X.E.: JUDGMENT DAY, a new crossover event by writer Kieron Gillen and artist Valerio Schiti. To celebrate what promises to be the biggest comics storyline of the year, artists Lucas Werneck and Ashley Witter teamed up on an exciting series of variant covers that will adorn each issue, starting with A.X.E.: EVE OF JUDGMENT #1. These stunning portraits will star some of the most powerful players from all three sides of the upcoming showdown.

Fans can see the following four characters on Werneck’s breathtaking covers:

Echo

Equipped with unmatched fighting skills, this former street-level hero now burns brightly with the power of the Phoenix Force. But does she have enough control of her new cosmic power to assist her fellow Avengers?
