A new mini series by Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato will be the “ultimate NSA leak” of Marvel, says Tom Brevoort. The body of the Watcher is found on the moon with his eyes missing. I’m pretty much sold right there, but more information is being given out RIGHT NOW at a Marvel press conference.
The killing of the Watcher will give out all the secrets of the Marvel U. “The worst thing, the skeletons in the closet of Matt Murdock and Peter Parker are revealed,” with terrible repercussions. It’s also the TMZ of the Marvel Universe, says Brevoort. It’s a murder mystery at the heart of the Marvel Universe, says Axel Alonso, Marvel e-i-c.
The secrets will be person and spins off into…the regular series! Captain America will learn someone has tampered with his memories, for instance. Also we’ll learn that someone else was bitten by the radioactive spider back in the day! This story goes right back to the very first day in the science lab.
All the tie ins will be important, says Alonso.
It turns out, this is not the killers first murder, says writer Jason Aaron. Different groups of MArvel heroes will go into the far reaches of the Marvel U to try to solve the mystery. It will be a series of mini buddy cop stories, for instance Ant Man and Emma Frost teaming up on their own part of the investigation, and the Punisher looking at ballistics in the Dark Dimension. The teams were all assembled for particular reasons, to cover a lot of bases in the Marvel U. “It’s a specific reason these characters are spearheading this part of the investigation,” and will push them out of their comfort zone.

As Nick Fury leads the heroes of the Marvel Universe in an investigation,
other forces are marshaling as well and other questions are arising. Why is
Black Panther gathering a secret team of his own, including Emma Frost,
