This June, prepare yourselves for another shocking twist as the epic comics blockbuster of the summer continues! Today, Marvel is proud to present your first look at ORIGINAL SIN #4 – from New York Times Bestselling writer Jason Aaron and critically acclaimed artist Mike Deodato! And after the nail-biting climax of last issue, no fan can afford to miss the event critics are hailing as “a riveting thriller” and “one hell of a story!”

The Watcher is dead, his secrets are out. And those secrets will pull the heroes of the Marvel Universe in different directions and down darker paths in the quest for answers. Everyone is a suspect and no one is safe. Only now, after the shocking ending of Original Sin #3 – all trails lead directly to the prime suspect. Is that who killed the Watcher? But why? And how is that even possible?

Meanwhile, the Marvel Universe’s most unlikely duo of the Punisher and Doctor Strange team up for a daring raid that could help save the universe – or destroy it. As even more bodies turn up, the Avengers, the X-Men, Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four and more will ask themselves – who’s next?

Trust no one. Not even yourself. Prepare yourselves for another game-changing ending that will have fans on the edge of their seat and a last page that will have the whole world talking when ORIGINAL SIN #4 hits comic shops and digital devices this June!

Everybody has one. This is Marvel’s ORIGINAL SIN!

Why does anybody think it's ever a good idea to work with Punisher? I mean seriously, the guy's a bigger dick than some villains are.

No bigger dick than Wolverine. The difference is that Punisher kills people and is an outcast among heroes, Wolverine kills people and gets invited to every team.

while he does, he's a lot more controlled in his killing, and most of the time (some times he does kill those who questionably don't deserve it) it's justifiable and/or in secret. Also, he's proven to be a good ally at least, and somehow pretty friendly with everyone :P Punisher still a dick all the time lol. Wolverine at least regrets his wrong choices, I'm pretty sure Castle sleeps like a baby

@novemberx2:

I honestly thought Original Sin was solely just a way for Marvel to revisit the origins of characters, since this is Marvel Now and I wouldn't be surprised if they tried revamping people's origins.

@omgomgwtfwtf: Given the Z-List villain reveals so far I wouldn't put it past her, after all she's beaten thanos with ease in the past

(although I love that Jason is using the Eye again, cause he's such a funny villain)

I really love where they put Emma Frost. It's no nice to see X-Men actually get away from X-Men books and accomplish something for a change.

I want to know how shes able to use her power in this.

They haven't done a good job showing it, but she is supposed to have been working with her daughters on fixing herself, but yeah it's probably half an oversight with the timing of things. They probably thought Uncanny X-Men would be further along when this came out, but it is nice to see she's recovering well.

I think is the hood the culprit Parker is crazy enough to do this kind of stuff and God knows where he went to get new powers again which could make him able to kill the watcher

The art is so bad...i really hate how "artists" are using 3d posers now. It look like a bad free russian 3d porn webcomic.

Seriously, deodato ruined a run of secret avengers and new avengers the last time people let him do this.

Well he did recently reappear in the newest issue speaking some demonic tongue

When did Doctor Strange sell his soul (I'm not up to date with Marvel)?

@patrat18: @omgomgwtfwtf: @daredevil21134: I'm actually being serious. Think about it, he recently sold his soul in order to get more power and he either wants to cover that up or just gain more power by killing the Watcher and he's manipulating the Punisher in to helping him not to find the killer but to help him do what Frank does best and that's get away with murder.
