DAMAGE CONTROL #1 (OF 5)
Marvel’s Unsung Heroes finally get sung! After the mega-powered battles and Hulk-level catastrophes, Damage Control is always there to clean up the mess and get things back to normal. But Damage Control is much more than just a glorified cleanup crew, and this new series will pull back the curtain and reveal the secret inner workings that were previously only available to people with Clearance Level Eight. And we’ll witness it all through the eyes of Gus: a fresh-faced, eager newcomer to the company who has no idea how chaotic his life is about to become.

Everyone with an agenda wants Captain Carter on their side, but what does Peggy want? As she teams with S.T.R.I.K.E. to investigate Hydra’s sudden resurgence, something doesn’t feel quite right. Can Peggy trust what she’s being told, or is someone trying to use her as a high-profile pawn in a game she doesn’t yet understand?

Now known as Ghost-Spider, she’s still affectionately known to her peers as Spider-Gwen! But what would have happened if she’d picked up the enchanted hammer Mjolnir instead? Or if she received the Super-Soldier Serum? Or built a high-tech suit of armor? Or…you get the idea! Well, you’re going to find out! Gwen Stacy is about to face a unique journey of self-discovery across time and space, never quite knowing which reality or time period she’s just landed in — or which version of herself she’ll be meeting next!
