It'll cover over 20 years, as our backdrop shows how the world changed while mutants came to power and humans became the minority. Bendis set the date of the end of the human/mutant wars as 1979, and you know what that means for issue #1...Luke Cage in his yellow shirt! Misty Knight with a huge afro! Villains like Cockroach Hamilton and Piranha Jones! Punk, disco and pre-Disney Times Square! All drawn by Mike Perkins! More, you could ask for?
Others [besides Cage—NP] we'll be seeing [“getting major face time”—NP] include Iron Fist, Moon Knight, Misty Knight, Hawkeye, Mockingbird and Tigra. The primary villains won't appear until issue #2...and they'll include some folks longtime Marvel fans may remember as heroes...or anti-heroes. That's a hint.
