Mostly a reprint book that featured reprinted stories of Marvel UK heroes (to the exclusion of any characters that originated from the main US division of Marvel comics, earlier on; this policy was eventually rescinded).
Overkill was a Marvel UK anthology published during the 1990s, deliberately designed as a Marvel equivalent to 2000AD.
Originally there was an editorially-directed policy of no Marvel US superheroes appearing in Overkill (meaning it could only reprint 11 pages of each Marvel UK story, excising 11 that had deliberate US guest-stars) – market research indicated this was counter-productive and the policy was dropped, with Death’s Head taking a prominent role in the comic.
