Marvel superheroes face a great new villain: creepy naked giants

New, 16 comments

In the world of superhero comics, it's always important to continue introducing new challenges for the heroes, usually in the form of fresh bad guys. Well, Marvel Comics has a surprising new enemy on the move in what must be one of the weirdest comic book crossovers ever.

Marvel Comics talent scout C.B. Cebulski has announced on his Twitter that a Marvel Comics crossover with the anime/manga Attack on Titan will be hitting Japan in two weeks.

Marvel has provided no further details on whether this crossover will make it to North America nor who is involved in creating it, although the teaser image above released by Cebulski looks like artwork from Attack on Titan writer/illustrator Hajime Isayama.

Attack on Titan takes place in a world where humanity has been nearly wiped out by a race of giant humanoids known as Titans. The manga series has been running since 2009, but it grew in popularity significantly when it debuted as an anime last year.

It's unclear how exactly the Titans will end up face-to-face with Marvel's best and brightest, but Cebulski mentions "What If" and alternate reality stories, so don't expect something in continuity. Cebulski also notes that "almost no manga" has crossed over with "other comic universes."

We've reached out to Marvel for clarification on if and when this crossover will make its way west, and we'll update this story if we hear back.
