The First Season of Marvel's Illuminati premiered on October 6, 2018 on The Marvel Network. It was previously aired to a small group of fans at San Diego Comic-Con on July 19, 2018.


The season begins with Reed Richards and the rest of the Fantastic Four visiting another universe, only to be caught in a collision between two Earths. After his longtime friend and teammate dies, Reed returns to Manhattan and gathers the Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Carol Danvers, and Stephen Strange to form a team that will investigate the multiverse-spanning cataclysm.

In the kingdom of Wakanda, T’Challa prepares himself for a war against the king of the All-Seas, the mutant Namor. His wife Ororo begins her search for the missing X-Men. Meanwhile, silent king of the floating city of New Attilan, Black Bolt, receives the blame for the disappearance of the mutants. In the mutant haven of Genosha, King Magneto, meets a man from the future who warns him that a great war between kings and queens is coming.

Finally, in the vast reaches of space, an ancient evil rises.
