Update - Millar posted more clues to the mystery of Nemesis. More after the jump.
I’m basically wanting to borrow the family car for a little while, take it on the scariest ride ever and hopefully hand it back in one piece.
Hopefully the fact that this has the potential to be bigger than Civil War will convince him. Here’s hoping as I love this. I just have that crazy good feeling about it when you know you’re onto something big. I knew we had it with Old Man Logan, Kick-Ass and Ultimates and I smell it here. This has the potential to be absolutely crazy.
Millar also mentioned that he wanted to "move the artist on my next creator-owned gig back into the Marvel stable and do what’s very possibly going to be the most commercial and yet radical Marvel project I have ever done.”
Update - Millar updated his original post with more information on Nemesis.
Three more clues:
1/ We're doing this for Marvel.
2/ The main character driving this is in the name.
3/ It's going to be awesome and very big indeed.
Next month Steve and I will be doing a massive interview for this and releasing the cover image plus maybe some interior pages too. You will like these A LOT. McNiv has a more Travis Charest style lined up for this project and it's just incredible. He's doing the best work of his career here.
Civil War was good, Old Man Logan was better, but Nemesis will be the best of the lot.
We're very excited.
Looks like it is in fact a Marvel event. Nemesis was Apocalypse's son, better known as Holocaust from the Age of Apocalypse. There's also a few random Alpha Flight characters that have taken on the name. Finally, there's that horrible EA Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects game to consider. Let's hope it wasn't released in Scotland and that Millar has no knowledge of it.
