"Lots of mysteries, lots of emotional beats. We've kidnapped a few luckless characters to be permanent additions to the cast -- the idea is that the game-players and their "Summoners" have a number of permanent pawns. They can be assisted by the Marvel Universe's best and brightest -- "ringers" who are stolen for a fight or two, mindwiped and sent back none the wiser -- but essentially, they're there to fight until they die.

Imagine that for a second. Fighting an endless gladiatorial combat in a broken section of spacetime, utterly alone. Nobody's rushing to bring you back, nobody's coming to get you. Iron Man says he'll bring in the Avengers -- but then he's sent home in a flash of light and you know he's not even going to remember your name. And then people start dying, and you know it's just a matter of time before it's your turn...

So, yeah, emotional beats won't be a problem. The big mystery is, how the Hell does anyone get out of this?

Let's take a look at the other Al Ewing book that came out recently, Contest of Champions. The story opens with this man in Britain, who is very jumpy and nervous. One night, he hears a noise outside of his place and goes to investigate it... in a special outfit.

"I don't do guns anymore."

So the mysterious figure captures our British Punisher and eventually dumps him in some prehistoric area. There, he runs into a familiar looking character.

The British Punisher hm?

Now I'm imagining him being played by Idris Elba.

Also, that's a Venom who killed his world's spider-man and is wearing his outfit as a cape.
