To hear that Marvel Comics is working on a new Deathlok series, and that it will be written by Nathan Edmondson (The Punisher, The Activity), one of my current favorite writers, is a dream come true. Also, being a fan of the character since the Deathlok miniseries in 1990 and for him to finally get an updated modern series, is all great news to me. This will definitely be finding its way onto my “pull list,” without a doubt.
Check out the cover to Deathlok #1, along with the description. There is also an interview with writer Nathan Edmondson at Marvel.com here. Deathlok by Nathan Edmondson and Mike Perkins will debut this fall from Marvel Comics. (Source: Marvel)
The Demolisher returns this October for Deathlok #1, an all-new series from the creative team of Nathan Edmondson and Mike Perkins!
Henry Hayes is a veteran, a single parent, a man who thought he’d left his war behind. But unbeknownst to him, he’s been transformed without his knowledge into the perfect weapon of destruction: Deathlok! Operative, fighter, assassin and more – on the battlefield, he is whatever his handlers need him to be.
Created by the mysterious Biotek corporation, Hayes is utilized as a deadly weapon rented out to the highest bidder, his memories erased at the close of every mission. As Henry slowly uncovers the truth behind the horrors that were visited upon him, he’ll struggle with the knowledge that he’s been transformed into a weapon of mass destruction – and expose the disturbing legacy of the many Deathloks that came before him.
We get our first taste of the new series in Original Sins #1 – featuring the first appearance of Henry Hayes in an all-new story by Edmondson and Perkins. Original Sins #1 is on-sale today!
Hunted across the globe by S.H.I.E.L.D., the one man army will be forced to choose – is he a man, or a machine?
