Written by New York Times Bestselling Author Chuck Wendig (Star Wars: Aftermath) with art by Nik Virella (1872), be there as the man without a world takes on the worst the humanity has to offer, but also discovers what makes them great.
â€œHyperion is a man who lost his universe. He doesnâ€™t belong anywhere. And as a result he lost himself and hasnâ€™t yet found who he really is,â€ says Chuck Wendig in an interview with Marvel.com. â€œSo he adopts America and its people as his children. But he doesnâ€™t understand them, and this is about Hyperion going out into the country to find out who these people are. And, by proxy, who he really is, too.â€
But corruption lives in the heartland of America. And Hyperion will root out the worst of it. Through the long nest of roads and highways and small strange towns â€“ Hyperion travels America, posing as one of us. Helping people. Exploring. All in pursuit of the answer to that one question â€“ what does it mean to be human?
Can he save these people from themselves? He has adopted humanity â€“ but will humanity adopt him back? Find out this March as he soars solo into comic shops with HYPERION #1!
