Written by j. Michael straczynski Penciled by chris weston Wraparound cover by kaare andrews

Yesterday’s men of tomorrow—today! Thought lost to the pages of time, a dozen mystery men from the “greatest generation” of world war two find themselves thrust into the morally-gray world of the 21st century! Now, captain wonder, dynamic man, mastermind excello, mister e, the laughing mask, the witness, the black widow, the phantom reporter, the fiery mask, rockman, the blue blade and electro the marvel of the age must seek a place for themselves in the modern marvel universe—while a silent killer seeks to eliminate them, one by one!

"JMS, on his days off from reminding everyone that his version of ‘One More Day’ would’ve been way better, found time to bang out a twelve issue event that’s pretty much ‘Forever Young’ meets Watchmen, but with characters so weird-looking and lame that it’s taken Marvel OVER SIXTY YEARS to find someone crazy enough to revive them. It’s a good thing they did wait, though, since JMS and Chris Weston have put together a book that indulges in the ludicrous nature of these never-were’s while attempting to revitalize them for a new millennium. Time’ll tell if they’re successful (or if they ever appear in another Marvel book, did someone say ‘Marvel: The Lost Generation’?), but this first issue is brimming with promise."
