Marvel’s Squadron Sinister #1 Enters the Battleworld Warzone


Hyperion, Nighthawk, Whizzer, Doctor Spectrum and Warrior Woman have laid down their brand of justice in their Secret Wars Battleworld domain aptly named Utopolis. In Squadron Sinister, writer Marc Guggenheim (Arrow Executive Producer) and artist Carlos Pacheco (Captain America) deliver a superpowered crime story in which this band of “justice dealers” have to overcome external, and internal, threats to what they have built. Seems like their borderline totalitarian methods haven’t gone over well with the neighbors.

Squadron Sinister #1 will be available at comic shops in June.

SQUADRON SINISTER #1 Brings Supreme Evil to the WARZONES! This June!

New York, NY—March 11th, 2015— The Squadron is back! Bigger, better, and more evil than ever! This June, the bad guys come out to play in SQUADRON SINISTER #1 – an all-new Secret Wars series! Writer Marc Guggenheim (Arrow Executive Producer) and artist Carlos Pacheco (Captain America) bring you an epic crime story of superpowered proportions!

Hyperion, Nighthawk, Whizzer, Doctor Spectrum and Warrior Woman. Together they make up the deadliest team of villains Battleworld has ever seen. Lording over their domain of Utopolis, they dispense devastating justice to any and all in their path. But will controlling just Utopolis be enough to feed their lust for power?

But threats from without and threats from within seek to undo everything Hyperion and his gang have built. Rulers from other domains mobilize against these superpowered aggressors. Devastating lies and secrets from within the Squadron itself may tear the team asunder. And seeds sown here bear bitter fruit for the future of the Marvel Universe. The measuring stick for evil just changed – and these five titans are it!

“[Squadron Sinister] is very much in keeping with a crime drama,” says writer Marc Guggenheim in an interview with “A lot of my touchstones were the Godfather movies and ‘Sons of Anarchy,’ ‘The Sopranos’. You know, that very criminal centric drama that shows that heavy is the head that wears the crown.”

Can anyone stop them? They’ll certainly try! Be there when Battleworld quivers beneath their might in SQUADRON SINISTER #1 – on sale this June!
