“Can anyone defeat the Red Skull?”
That’s the question asked at the end of the trailer just released by Marvel in preparation for the AXIS event set to launch this fall.
The three-and-a-half minute long trailer digests the events of Avengers vs. X-Men and the fall-out as covered in Rick Remender’s Uncanny Avengers. It summarizes the rise of the Red Skull in the wake of Professor X’s death, as well as Captain America’s formation of the Unity Squad and the events of the subsequent “Avenge the Earth” arc. The end of the trailer shows the Red Skull establishing his base at Genosha, and teases the members of both the hero and villain teams of AXIS.
The main AXIS book will kick off in October with Avengers & X-Men: AXIS. Tie-ins bearing the “March to AXIS” title available in September include issues of Captain America, Loki: Agent of Asgard, Magneto, and Uncanny Avengers.
