Nick Fury Investigates The Watcher’s Death In Marvel’s Next Event ‘ORIGINAL SIN’


watcher bannerMarvel teased the death of Uatu the Watcher a few months ago, but now details on the event that will see the 616 universe’s overseer murdered has been released. The big crossover event for 2014 will be called Original Sin. The murder mystery will be presented by Jason Aaron artist Mike Deodato. The Watcher is found dead in his lunar lair, and it’s up to Nick Fury and his assembled team to solve the mystery. USA Today had the details and our first look at Deodato‘s art.

This May the Marvel Universe will have to figure out who killed Uatu if they hope to keep their dark secrets hidden. Executive editor Tom Breevort said of the upcoming event:

It’s all the skeletons, all the dark things that you never know, all the interesting and intriguing information — not all of it even bad. And it will all expand out into dozens of stories that will cut to the core of who these characters are.

The main section of Original Sin will run for eight issues over the course of four months, but there will be countless tie-ins and crossovers focusing on the search for the murderer. Former super-spy Nick Fury will be leading the investigation. Aaron said that Fury is the perfect character for this because he’s “the grizzled Marvel superhero version of an old homicide detective.” Fury will enlist the aid of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and a few others as the manhunt begins. Punisher will be partnering up with Doctor Strange back on earth as they, along with Emma Frost, Ant-Man and Black Panther, do their own investigating. Everyone is trying to recover the powerful objects that were stolen from Uatu‘s base after the murder as well.

Original Sin will have a special zero issue from Mark Waid and Jim Cheung this April to serve as a prelude to the event as well as reintroducing The Watcher to readers.
