G.O.D.S. are coming to the Marvel Universe, and nothing will ever be quite the same. The new series by Jonathan Hickman and Valerio Schiti is a little over a month away from launch, leaving little time before Marvel Universe magic gets redefined, recreating a number of familiar Marvel entities in the process… all while telling a human-level story attempting to introduce something new into the world.

Juggling all of that is no easy task, but Hickman and Schiti are far from strangers to ambitious comic book projects; the artist took on 2022’s Avengers/X-Men: Judgment Day miniseries, while Hickman has done everything from remake the X-Men franchise with 2019’s House of X/Powers of X one-two punch to reset the Marvel Universe as a whole with 2015’s Secret Wars — a comic book series that laid the groundwork for the future of Marvel Studios’ output for the next few years.

Following a closed-door retailer call to discuss the new series, Popverse had ten minutes to speak with Hickman about G.O.D.S., its origins, and just what the title really means.
