Skillet’s song “Back From the Dead,” from the band's 2016 album Unleashed, is being featured in a trailer for Marvel Comic’s Monsters Unleashed! comic book series.
The five-issue run of crossover comics features a storyline where an army of classic Marvel heroes, including the X-Men and the Avengers, are forced to unite so they can battle a slew of Marvel monsters that are attacking Earth. The first issue, published Jan. 18, pits the heroes against an invasion of creatures called Leviathons. Four issues in the series are currently available.
Marvel Comics editor in chief Axel Alonso tells Billboard, “Monsters Unleashed! is what Marvel does best: a gigantic, bombastic battle for the fate of the world. With its kinetic, hard-hitting sound, Skillet's ‘Back from the Dead’ is the perfect accompaniment for a story that pits the world’s biggest superheroes against skyscraper-size monsters.”
