Marvel unveils its Big Watcher Murder-Mystery Event of 2014 with "Original Sin"

Looks like one of Marvel's seemingly immortal figures will buy the big one this 2014... And it's up to the entire Marvel Universe to find out who killed him!

Via and USA Today, the new big event will be called "Original Sin", and deals with the death of a being known to many as "The Watcher". Written by Jason Aaron and illustrated by Mike Deodato Jr., this miniseries will see cosmic being and observer of realities known as Uatu The Watcher murdered on his home planet of the Moon, leading to Earth's heroes to find out who killed him and why. Led by none other than the original Nick Fury of Earth-616, heroes like Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and Wolverine search for the murderer, while a separate group consisting of The Punisher, Dr. Strange, Emma Frost, Black Panther, and Ant-Man. Tie-ins and supplementary issues are expected to begin alongside the core miniseries this coming May, but a "zero issue" featuring Nova and a re-introduction to Uatu will be released on April, written by Mark Waid and art by Jim Cheung.

With Uatu's death coming up, this will spell big ramifications on the Marvel Universe as we know it. After Infinity and Inhumanity, it's now a mystery that's itching to be solved and may lead to something even bigger down the line in the months ahead.

Original Sin begins with issue #0 this April and #1 this May!
