What do you get when you pair the new kid on the comic book block, Amadeus Cho, with the almighty Hercules and pit them and the rest of the Marvel universe against Chaos? Well you get the Chaos War the new Marvel project from Boerum Hill writer Fred Van Lente.
According to reports in YourNabe (1) Van Lente has been with Marvel for some years now. One of the biggest characters in his books is always the borough he calls home.
“Brooklyn is so diverse, with all its nationalities and cultures, and I know it so well, having been here for 15 years, that it’s just natural for me to take advantage of that.”
From the sounds of it this Chaos King five part series looks really exciting. “We had to make this thing super-mega huge,” Van Lente told YourNabe. “…in the Chaos King we have a villain who is destroying the Dream Realm, the Underworld, the pantheons of the Norse, Greek, and all the other gods in Marvel U.”
Even if you’ve been away from comic books for a little while, Chaos King sounds like as good a reason as any to jump back up on that horse and see what’s cooking!
