Exclusive Preview: Devil’s Reign #5

Wilson Fisk is the mayor of New York City, but that power is no longer enough for the Kingpin of Crime. Fisk has been so obsessed with getting his revenge on Daredevil that he has outlawed all superheroes in NYC, including the Avengers and the Fantastic Four. He has also solidified his control by forcing the Purple Man to use his powers to influence the entire city. Additionally, Fisk has used those same powers to remember a critical piece of info. Now, Fisk once again knows that Matt Murdock is Daredevil. Devil’s Reign.

In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview for Devil’s Reign #5, writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Marco Checchetto catch up with Fisk’s Thunderbolts, including John Walker/U.S. Agent. The Purple Man’s children have been found, and they could potentially give Fisk control over the entire country. Fortunately, Jessica Jones and the Champions may be able to prevent this power grab.

Here’s the official description from Marvel.

“As smart and ruthless as Wilson Fisk may be, he’s chosen to enlist the aid of some of the most reprehensible, dangerous and bloodthirsty criminals the Marvel Universe has to offer! He’s been able to keep them on a short leash out of fear for weeks. IN THIS ISSUE — that fear runs out! Fisk’s lackeys aren’t scared of ANYTHING anymore, even him — and ALL OF NEW YORK is left to pay the price!”

You can read the full preview in our gallery below. Devil’s Reign #5 will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, March 9.
