This is a MARVEL UK House Ad, from the US format Genesis 92 line (published in comics cover-dated February 1993) plugging the first BATTLETIDE limited series.

Abnett and Lanning's four-parter borrowed from SECRET WARS (aliens kidnap assorted heroes and villains and pitch them into combat for their viewing pleasure) and mixed in some wrestling (the characters are paired-off into various tag teams) for an undemanding romp enlivened by Geoff Senior's art.

The whole thing was reprinted in the one-and-only spin-off from OVERKILL: the 1993 Easter Special.  To date, it remains the only English language compilation of G92 era material.
