Exclusive Preview – Fantastic Four: Reckoning War Alpha #1

A Reckoning is coming to the Marvel Universe! For over 15 years, writer Dan Slott has teased the Reckoning War in his Marvel titles. During the Empyre event, the enigmatic First Race armed the Cotati for their war on Earth. And while the Cotati were defeated by the Fantastic Four and the Avengers, the First Race represents a threat so dire that Uatu the Watcher self-resurrected to prepare for the war to come.

In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview for Fantastic Four: Reckoning War #1, Slott and artists Carlos Pacheco, Rafael Fonteriz, and Carlos Magno kick off the action with the destruction of Earth’s moon. The FF, the Avengers, the X-Men, and Spider-Man have all answered the call to save humanity. However, the invasion of Earth has begun, and the heroes are already outmatched.

Here’s the official description from Marvel.


In a time before the Kree, Skrull or Shi’ar Empires. Before the emergence of Galactus. Before the birth of Asgard. There was the First War. The greatest war to ever rage across the Multiverse. Today, it is reignited. This is the Day of Reckoning. And all that stands between all of reality and revenge from the dawn of time are the heroes of Earth, the Fantastic Four and the mind of Mister Fantastic. Starring the FF, She-Hulk, Jack of Hearts, the Unseen, the Silver Surfer and everyone in the whole damn Marvel Universe
