DOOM SEES YOU
Since arriving in the Marvel Universe from the real world, Gwenpool has made a name for herself as one of its most exciting heroes. From teaming up with Spider-Man and the Mighty Thor to tackling villains like M.O.D.O.K. and Arcade, no one can top her combination of demolition and off-the-wall adventure. But now Gwenpool's looking for the biggest and baddest foes she can think of and she's going right to the top of the list with…DR. DOOM!
To take on a villain of Doctor Doom's caliber, Gwen will need new powers beyond just the inexplicable ability to not get canceled after 21 issues, and that's just Hastings intends to deliver, though he notes that with great power comes… what was it again?
Gwen's new honest to goodness super powers definitely change up how the book works, but she's also gaining an awareness of her place in the Marvel universe. When she first showed up, she was completely selfish and irresponsible, believing it to be fictional and thinking that nothing she did had any repercussions. Nobody else's lives were real to her. But as she's getting up to nearly two years in the comics, she's made friends, and seen the consequences of her actions. She's trying to become a better person, but at the same time she sees that some powerful force in the Marvel Universe wants to cast her as a joke and a low-rate villain. Things are getting existential for Gwen!
Look for this series in comic stores this fall as part of the industry-changing Marvel Legacy not-a-relaunch!
