Bleeding Cool has reported that writer Paul Jenkins is set to write a new mini-series as part of Marvel’s 70th Anniversary celebrations entitled Band Of Heroes.
The mini, which will be set in the WWII era and feature both classic Timely characters and also new creations by Jenkins as they fight the war not as superheroes, but as regular soldiers.
When asked about the series by Rich Johnston, Jenkins said:
In the immortal words of Tom Brevoort, it’s like Marvel lined me up for
a five-yard field goal. I feel this kind of wartime material really
suits me because I have a lot to say.
It sounds like this could be a great series, Jenkins is pretty hit and miss, with notable hits being Inhumans and Wolverine Origin, but he’s also the man behind the painful war allegories in Civil War: Frontline. Which Jenkins will come out to play here?
