Updated 9/11: Marvel Comics has revealed several more December 2013 tie-in issues to their Inhumanity event, in advance of the release of their December solicitations Thursday. These come on the heels of Tuesday's exclusive Newsarama reveal of the Indestructible Hulk #17.INH tie-in (below).
First up is a new presumably limited series, spinning out of Infinity: The Hunt.
Inhumanity: The Awakening by writer Matt Kindt and artist Paul Davidson promises major fallout from Infinity and a crucial turning point for the youth of the Marvel Universe as "Inhumanity puts Avengers and mutant students to the test! Will they pass?"
"Think back to when you were 16 and the things that you used to define yourself," editor Bill Rosemann said of the series. "Things like your family, your history and where you come from. Now imagine if one day you realize everything you know about yourself is wrong - and, oh yeah, you have spikes sprouting up all over your body and your hands spray acid."
With the Avengers, the X-Men and superhero groups preoccupied by other disasters around the world, it falls to the next generation to step up and safeguard their would-be peers.
"It's up to the students of the Avengers Academy and the Jean Grey School to save these young adults before they destroy everything around them," Rosemann said.
Another tie-in issue to an existing series is New Avengers #13.INH from Jonathan Hickman and Simone Bianchi.
"Can the New Avengers stop the Inhumanity?" asks Marvel.
"As radically as you can with them both still being the Inhumans and not dead," promises Hickman of how much the powerful race will change as a result of the events of Infinity. "Which is good, as I really like writing Black Bolt and Maximus."
The Inhuman power players will have a major impact beyond the walls of Attilan in the months to come, says Marvel, as will other elements being explored by the Illuminati, first and foremost the devastating Incursions they've gathered to combat.
"The cool thing about New Avengers is that we see how actions in the Marvel Universe trickle out and affect other universes," Hickman noted.
Finally, in Avengers A.I. #7.INH, Sam Humphries and artist Andre Lima Araujo explore what a post-Infinity landscape means for Hank Pym and his squad. However, they won't be alone, as the Man Without Fear joins the party.
"In the wake of Infinity, there is an epic-scale threat to New York City, and Avengers A.I. are enlisted as the first team on the scene," revealed Humphries. "Old friends Ant-Man and Daredevil are reunited by the dangers of the new era of Inhumans."
Original story: Marvel's next event Inhumanity is getting a series of tie-in issues in its debut month of December, including that's month's Indestructible Hulk. Here's an issue look at the cover and the basic solicitation info for the issue.
Look for another tie-in issue cover debut Wednesday and presumably Marvel's full December 2013 solicitations on Thursday at 12pm ET.
