The Last Annihilation: Wiccan & Hulkling Highlights LGBTQ Power Couple
Wiccan and Hulkling are the #1 LGBTQ power couple of the Marvel Universe, and they have been ever since their days as teenagers in Young Avengers. Now, the son of Captain Mar-Vell and the child of the Scarlet Witch are officially a married pair as well. They’ve gone through a lot, and fought to stay together. But now they will have to face a new cosmic storm brewing on the horizon.
Marvel Comics is reshaping the intergalactic side of things once more, with the new event crossover The Last Annihilation. And Wiccan and Hulkling are caught smack dab in the middle of this potential cosmic apocalypse, which is being spearheaded by the creative mind of writer Al Ewing.
At the helm of this Wiccan and Hulking one-shot is writer Anthony Oliveira, who had this to say about the upcoming story.
“It’s such a joy to be working on these characters who were such an important part of myself growing up, and getting to work with Al Ewing again as he tells this larger magnificent space opera is such a pleasure. He and editor Darren Shan have been so generous with their conversation and our mutual fondness for continuity deep dives means this one is a treasure trove for “billyteddy” fans and old-school cosmic Marvel fans alike.”
Oliveira will be joined by artist Jan Bazaldua, and cover artist Luciano Vecchio. Here’s the official description from Marvel.
“Worlds apart, but never alone! The Last Annihilation has hit the Kree/Skrull Alliance. Wiccan and Hulkling must split up to simultaneously defend two planets against the Mindless Army! But will the individual newlyweds be enough to fight off the forces of Dormammu? Or will they become the next casualties in this senseless war?”
The Last Annihilation: Wiccan and Hulkling #1 hits comic shops on September. You can view Luciano Vecchio’s cover for the first issue below.
