Title: Fear Itself Binding: Paperback Author: Andrew Rosenheim Publisher: ARROW
In this time of global anxiety, of economic turmoil and mass hysteria, Sin - the new Red Skull - has made an awesome discovery: a shameful secret that will rock the foundations of the Marvel Universe! A revelation that will divide father and son, turn friend against friend and herald the rise of Fear personified. He is returning - and the world has nothing to fear but Fear Itself! As Odin and the Asguardians leave the Erath to fend for itself, the Avengers and the world's remaining heroes must battle an unstoppable tide of terror! And then - the Serpent's Hammers fall! Who shall rise up and join the Serpent as the Worthy living avatars of his evil? And how can the Averngers respond.
The Unstoppable Juggernaut is marching towards Utopia and the X-Men have all the time in the world to realise how little they can do to stop him. As an offer by the Serpent's servant puts human and mutant at each others' throats, one X-Man makes a deal with a demon lord in an attempt to halt the Juggernaut's rampage.
As the Fear Itself hammer-wielders continue their campaign of terror, Red Hulk takes on the newly deified Ben Grimm. It's bruiser vs. bruiser as two of the world's strongest battle it out in an all-out brawl that will shake the world.
