Marvel and ComiXology have provided ComicBook.com with an exclusive preview of Thor vs. Hulk: Champions of the Universe #2, available digitally tomorrow.
The series, seemingly timed to coincide with the titans clashing in Thor: Ragnarok this November, is being written by Jeremy Whitley, with art by Alti Firmansyah. #2 features a cover by Dan Mora (Klaus).
"The Mighty Thor and The Incredible Hulk have long been two of the strongest, mightiest, and most sought out heroes of the Marvel Universe," said series writer Jeremy Whitley. "Thor is a god, Hulk is a colossus. Now the Champion of the Universe is looking for an opponent and Hulk and Thor are the top contenders. So rather than fight them both, The Champion's new promoter has set up a series of contests which Hulk and Thor must complete to decide who will face The Champion."
"We wanted to take the things we love from stories like Contest of Champions and add a new twist that allows us to play in the ENTIRE Marvel Universe," Whitley continued. "Every issue is a new world, a new task, and new trials for the God of Thunder and the Great Green Goliath. Readers will get to see some of their favorite elements of the Marvel Universe and a handful of new ones. We wanted to make a mini-series jam-packed with so much action that readers would come back to it again and again. It's a love letter to two of the strongest Avengers and the wonderful universe they live in. A universe where anything can happen."
