This week brought us the start of Fear Itself, Marvel's latest event surrounding a threat so big that it's made the Norse God Odin beat up his son Thor and order all the Asgardians on Earth to run away with him. That threat is some sort of "god of fear" who is apparently summoning hammers of fear for mysterious purposes – which appears to include giving one to the Hulk and giving one to Juggernaut. (Sound a little like an entity of fear giving out rings of fear to people like the Scarecrow and Mongul?) Are they actually strong enough to break Captain America's shield, or is that variant cover by Steve McNiven just metaphorical? We'll have to wait a month to find out.
Check out these Stuart Immonen preview pages and alternate covers from Fear Itself #2, due out on May 4.
