Get your hands on a copy of Civil War II #3 here: http://bit.ly/29QlTgZ


There’s a new inhuman in the Marvel Universe. The guy’s name is Ulysses, and he has quite a power: it appears he can predict the future.

With Civil War II #3, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, and many other heroes visit Bruce Banner to talk about the violent vision Ulysses had about the Green Goliath. But when all is said and done, one character is no longer alive.

I think you should be excited, too. And no, it’s not a reboot.
