For every superhero, there are scores more villains out there that threaten the hero, the city, the world or even the universe. This summer Marvel Comics will be throwing the spotlight on some villains, both iconic and newer, during their recently announced Acts of Evil banner/event.

Now the publisher has revealed what shape the sort of event will happen, various annuals for books that will pit the title’s hero/anti-hero against a villain they don’t normally take on. The stories will appear starting in July and continue into August and September.

So far only the July books have been revealed in the shape of Magnificent Ms. Marvel Annual 01: Ms. Marvel vs Super Skrull, Punisher Annual 01: Punisher vs Brood Queen, and Venom Annual 01: Venom vs Lady Hellbender. 

“You know what everyone says is worse than the devil? The devil you don’t know!” teases editor Kathleen Wisneski. “For ACTS OF EVIL, Marvel is pitting our heroes against villains they’ll never see coming, and we’ve lined up creative teams with fresh takes on these characters to make sure our fans are just as blindsided. So readers should steel themselves! And make sure they don’t miss the launch of the next legendary rivalry, or hints at a supervillain’s next masterstroke…”

Check out the creative teams and covers below.
