Devil’s Reign is an upcoming crossover event from writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Marco Checcetto. It spins out of their acclaimed run on Daredevil, and will see Fisk expanding his vendetta against Matt Murdock into a war against all superheroes. In order to take down Marvel’s masked vigilantes, Kingpin will use all of his criminal and political power to build up an army of villains. Their story will be told in Devil’s Reign: Villains for Hire by Clay McLeod Chapman and Manuel Garcia, and Doctor Octopus will star in Devil’s Reign: Superior Four from writer Zac Thompson and artist David Tinto.
Speaking on Devil’s Reign, Zdarsky said, “Our Daredevil plan just kept getting bigger and bigger, to the point where it would clearly affect the Marvel Universe in huge ways.” He added, “Thankfully, Marvel recognized this as well and gave Marco and I the opportunity to tell the story on a massive stage with Devil’s Reign! This is a proper Marvel event springing from the pages of Daredevil and I think all Marvel readers will love what’s coming!”

This “massive stage” will see many heroes getting roped into Devil’s Reign. In addition to a tie-in for Spider-Woman, the story will expand into Devil’s Reign: X-Men by Gerry Duggan and Phil Noto, which will reveal Emma Frost’s secret connection with the Kingpin. Then, Bucky Barnes tries to protect his past in Devil’s Reign: The Winter Soldier by Collin Kelly, Jackson Lanzing, and Nico Leon. Elektra will also take center stage in Daredevil: Woman Without Fear by Zdarsky and artist Rafael De Latorre.
