Four more War of the Realms tie-ins have been released ahead of Marvel's full April 2019 solicitations (as revealed by CBR), and they show Thor bolstering his army with the addition of the X-Men and the Punisher. New Punisher and X-Men tie-in limited series are scheduled to debut in April, and the contents of that month's Thor and Asgardians of the Galaxy - already known to be tying in - have been revealed.

"I have been building towards War of the Realms for the entire duration of my Thor run. So we're talking six years and 80-something issues and counting," said War of the Realms event writer Jason Aaron previously. "This is a war that covers the entire globe and involves the biggest heroes of the Marvel Universe."

Here are the four solicitations. Look for Marvel's full April 2019 solicitations later this month on Newsarama.

PUNISHER: AVENGER OF MIDGARD!
The War of The Realms has brought monsters to the streets of New York City, but New York has a monster all its own…Frank Castle, A.K.A. THE PUNISHER! And he’ll be damned to Hel if he’s going to let a bunch of Ten Realms tin-pot tyrants terrorize his town. But given he’s one man against an army of monsters, Hel might soon have him! The War of Realms is about to meet Marvel’s One Man Army. Expect Punishment!

The War of the Realms has come to Midgard…and Westchester! Malekith’s forces are invading Earth, and the heroes of Earth are joining with the heroes of Asgard to fight them back! Who better to lead the X-Men into that war than their very own Valkyrie, Dani Moonstar?

WAR OF THE REALMS TIE-IN!
Fatherly love is not something with which Loki Laufeyson is terribly familiar. Still, you’d think that with the Frost Giants invading New York in Malekith’s WAR OF THE REALMS, he’d find some quality time to spend with dear old deadly Dad. And he will. But not in the way you’d think…

ASGARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #8
CULLEN BUNN (W) • MATTEO LOLLI (A) • Cover by GERARDO SANDOVAL

WAR OF THE REALMS TIE-IN!
Bit by bit, the Dark Elf King Malekith has been taking over the Ten Realms. Now at last every realm has fallen save one: Midgard. The invasion has begun, and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will need all the help they can get. The Asgardians of the Galaxy join the battle for the Tenth Realm!
