CONTEST OF CHAMPIONS #1-10 (Al Ewing / Paco Medina)

Pour la première fois depuis la création de la firme il y a plus de 76 ans, l’éditeur Marvel publiera un comic adaptant une franchise vidéo-ludique de son cru: le jeu Contest of Champions (Le Tournoi des Héros) développé par Kabam.

Aux manettes, les lecteurs retrouveront le scénariste Al Ewing (The Ultimates, New Avengers) et le dessinateur Paco Medina. Les deux auteurs chercheront à savoir ce qui arrive aux héros stockés/prisonniers lorsqu’ils ne sont pas en train de se battre. Ce sera l’occasion de présenter de nouveaux personnages qui seront graduellement introduits dans le jeu. C’est le cas de Guillotine, une jeune héroïne tirant ses pouvoirs d’une épée magique qui est dans sa famille depuis la révolution Française.

Cette nouvelle série fera partie de l’importante vague de lancements qui suivra la conclusion de Secret Wars.

Quand je pense que certains ont changé de scénar’, des scènes, retiré des scènes, repoussé des films, arrêté des scripts, … suite au 11/09 et voilà que eux nous sortent une chtite chtite chtite chtite fillotte du Docteur Guillotin !

Quel timing !

[quote]There’s a core cast – the “Pawns” – split into two team,s controlled by two different Summoners. One of those is the Maestro, controlling a team of main universe characters, and the other is a mysterious Player On The Other Side, who we won’t be revealing until issue #4 or #5, probably. He’s running a team pulled from different alternate universes.

Those Summoners are acting under the direction of the Elders, as part of a cosmic competition for the ultimate prize. In addition, we have guest stars brought in by the Elders to essentially add a little zap to proceedings and prolong the excitement. It’s all a bit meta, really. That’s one of the fun things about this series – I think at one point the tagline for the series was going to be: ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?

Anyway, we’re bringing back a couple of characters readers might think we couldn’t – the Collector’s reach, in certain cases, extends to the dead.[/quote]

Voici une page Contest of Champions #8 par Rhoald Marcellius et la couverture du neuvième épisode par Mark Bagley :

[quote]That was always the Maestro’s plan – to bring back Battleworld. Since “Secret Wars,” he’s been itching to become sole ruler of Battleworld, so there’s a pride issue, otherwise he’d presumably have built a new planet somewhere else, or gone to rule over an alternate Earth. Effectively, he’s become a god, which makes him incredibly dangerous – his only limitations are the ones he imposes on himself. He has weaknesses, as we’ll see – he’s a very primal, physical being who thinks in physical terms. He’s still the Hulk, and he still likes a fight.

As to his relationship with the other contestants – they’re his prisoners, and he has Jake Gallows as the ultimate warden. As far as he’s concerned, the contestants are out of his hair for good, and he can concentrate on deciding what he wants to do with his new planet.[/quote]
