Young Avengers‘ Hulkling has skyrocketed from teen hero to Emperor of a unified Kree/Skrull alliance, and his path to the throne will be told in a new Empyre tie-in due out this April.

Lords of Empyre: Emperor Hulkling by writers Chip Zdarsky and Anthony Oliveira and artist Manuel Garcia will explore Hulking’s ascent, from his origin to his present-day – and the ‘destiny’ that took him there.

“For all the grandeur and soap-operatics of his origin, he’s often been left on the sidelines. This story is about really delving into that sense of restlessness, and his epic, classic hero’s journey – star-crossed romance! colossal space battles! a long lost prince! – grounded in its heart with a question about what it might mean, and what it might cost, to be king – and the terrible strain it puts on the love of his life,” explains Oliveira.

“I can’t wait til Teddy fans see what we have in store – and what Marvel’s planning for the rest of Empyre! This crossover is going to take the cosmos by storm!
