A couple of weeks ago, we reported that a Marvel Comics/ Attack on Titan crossover was in the works. Well, it’s not only in the works, but it’s set to be published on Saturday. Now, we’ve got more info on the plot as well as more news on what Marvel heroes will be taking on a Titan.
According to Rocketnews, The crossover will feature The Guardians of The Galaxy, The Avengers, and others taking on the Female Colossal Titan and others in New York City.
In an interview with Brutus Magazine, Marvel Comics Senior Vice President of Creative & Creator Development C.B. Cebulski, he got weird and political, trying to tie the popularity of Attack On Titan with civil liberty problems in the US:
“The Reason Is Because Americans Are Becoming Prisoners” that discusses Attack on Titan‘s popularity in America. Cebulski introduces the English phrase “Nothing Sacred” when discussing how major characters in the series will suddenly die. He also talks about how today’s youth in America live in uneasy times, with metal detectors at the entrances to high schools and children being banned from playing outside. He said people can feel like they are living within walled confines, and so perhaps American youths can emotionally invest in Eren and his friends’ fight with the Titans beyond the walls.
Weird… I just liked the story and the goofy, genital free bad guys.
