Update: Devil's Reign: Omega is a May special that will "fully explore" the impact of Devil's Reign on the Marvel Universe and the significant changes to its superheroes and supervillains and will serve as an introduction to the next eras of Daredevil, Elektra, Kingpin, and the new Thunderbolts, some of which have now been revealed in the conclusion of the main Devil's Reign limited series.

With Devil's Reign: Omega now on the horizon, leading into a relaunched Daredevil title with both Matt Murdock and Elektra sharing the role of Daredevil, the publisher has released a preview of interior pages showing both Daredevils teaming up with unopposed NYC mayoral candidate Luke Cage and his old pal Danny Rand as well as Monica Rambeau/Spectrum to take down some criminals.

Here's the gallery of unlettered pages:

According to the publisher, in the wake of the crossover story, New York City is "remade and reforged" in Wilson Fisk's spirit. After the events of the series, the city's superheroes have to adapt to a "new and dangerous paradigm" which Marvel describes as "eight million people turned against them."

The special will also address the outcome of the NYC mayoral race, whether Elektra will continue to operate as the Woman Without Fear, and other developments will that emerge in the aftermath of the Kingpin's takeover. 

Devil's Reign: Omega goes on sale May 25.

Original story follows...

Marvel's Devil's Reign event will continue through and then conclude in March, according to a checklist (seen here) released by the publisher, and it also released images and info for all the Devil's Reign installments on sale in February. 

[Newsarama note:  the three-part Luke Cage: City of Fire, included on the checklist, was postponed and is on indefinite hiatus and as see above will now conclude in May.]

We already gave you a look at Chip Zdarsky and Rafael De Latorre's Daredevil: Woman Without Fear #2, Anthony Piper and artist Zé Carlos, Devil's Reign: Spider-Man #1, plus Jed MacKay's Devil's Reign: Moon Knight #1 and Moon Knight #8 (drawn by Federica Sabbatini and Alessandro Cappuccio, respectively), and Devil's Reign: Superior Four #2 by Zac Thompson and Davide Tinto.

But that isn't all the February action. 

In February 2's Devil's Reign: Villains for Hire #2 by Clay McLeod Chapman and artist Manuel Garcia, Wilson Fisk has made it a binary choice for supervillains - join his army or face the same all-out war the superheroes are facing.

In February 9's main title Devil's Reign #4 by Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto, commanding an army of supervillains, Fisk has abandoned any sense of honor or shred of decency he ever had in his assault on the New York City superhero community.

But what the Kingpin doesn't realize is the danger he's putting all of NYC in by incapacitating its superhero protectors.  

In February 23's Devil's Reign: X-Men #2, Gerry Duggan and Phil Noto continue revealing deadly secrets about Emma Frost's past and her heretofore unrevealed shady history with Wilson Fisk.

Kingpin is a classic Marvel villain, but did he make Newsarama's list of the best Marvel supervillains of all time?

I'm not just the Newsarama founder and editor-in-chief, I'm also a reader. And that reference is just a little bit older than the beginning of my Newsarama journey. I founded what would become the comic book news site in 1996, and except for a brief sojourn at Marvel Comics as its marketing and communications manager in 2003, I've been writing about new comic book titles, creative changes, and occasionally offering my perspective on important industry events and developments for the 25 years since. Despite many changes to Newsarama, my passion for the medium of comic books and the characters makes the last quarter-century (it's crazy to see that in writing) time spent doing what I love most.
