Who Killed the Watcher? Find Out in Marvel's 2014 Original Sin Event


Where would we be if Marvel didn't pump out even after event to keep us buying more of their books. Last year we had Age of Ultron, Infinity, and Battle of the Atom, but that is nothing compared to the event of 2014. It was first teased last November that Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato Jr. were teaming up for a Marvel Comics' 2014 event. USA Today finally dropped the bomb as the event will be titled Original Sin and involve Uatu the Watcher's death.




Debuting in May, "Original Sin" will be an eight-issue miniseries shipping over four months, described as a "murder mystery" centering around the search for whoever killed long-running Marvel character Uatu the Watcher. Nick Fury (the original), will gather a team of Marvel heroes including Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, the Punisher, Doctor Strange, Emma Frost, Ant-Man and Black Panther to both pursue the killer, and prevent the Watcher's secrets from being revealed.

"It's all the skeletons, all the dark things that you never know, all the interesting and intriguing information -- not all of it even bad," Marvel senior vice president of publishing Tom Brevoort is quoted. "And it will all expand out into dozens of stories that will cut to the core of who these characters are." Brevoort contrasted "Original Sin" with recently wrapped Marvel event series "Infinity" by saying the stakes in the upcoming story are much more personal.

"Original Sin" will start with a zero issue in April from writer Mark Waid and artist Jim Cheung, starring Uatu and the current Nova, Sam Alexander. Tie-ins are also in the works, with USA Today's piece stating that characters such as Wolverine and Spider-Man will have to deal with their "hidden histories" being revealed.

"It's not just about guessing which one of these five people pulled the trigger," Aaron, current writer of "Amazing X-Men" and "Thor: God of Thunder," said in the piece. "There's a bigger overall mystery than that."
