The White Event. The most startling celestial phenomenon ever witnessed by the human race. The phenomenon that served as the backdrop for the Latvian landslip that unearthed the very tomb archeologist Len Carson was searching for. The tomb’s discovery was such an unlikelihood that it begs the question: Was its emergence during the White Event merely a coincidence?
Acclaimed writer Warren Ellis (NEXTWAVE) and superstar artist Salvador Larroca (X-MEN) bring you this new universe — a universe witnessing superhuman power for the first time.

Black eyes, broken jaws, and multiple-fractured limbs---Angela del Toro aka White Tiger keeps on dishing out pain with a vengeance to the felons of New York City. She is still in hot pursuit of the murder-for-profit crime syndicate Chaeyi. Plus, Sano Orii and the all-new deadly Cobra have confronted her at every answer’s turn, so far. And much like any hotshot rookie, Del Toro has to deal with unwanted public exposure, compliments of the Daily Bugle.
If masked life wasn’t bruising or brutal enough, Angela gets mauled by a vicious-but-familiar villain; “enjoys” a little bit of quality time---sparring---with the one-and-only Luke Cage; and finally, catches a break with a solid lead on Chaeyi. Too bad, an all-out battle with Cobra leaves her a bloody mess on a rooftop. Welcome to the jungle! Is White Tiger going to die?
