It wasn’t that long ago that we learned writer Tom King‘s run on Batman would be shifting to a new max-series Batman/Catwoman. From the initial announcement the series sounds like it’ll be the continuation of King’s intended conclusion to his Batman run focusing on the relationship between Batman and Catwoman.
We now have a new teaser for the series featuring a very interesting character… Phantasm!
Phantasm debuted in the 1993 animated film Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. The story revolves around an early relationship in Bruce Wayne’s life.
The character has appeared in Batman Beyond 2.0 and as an action figure as well in comics in Batman & Robin Adventures Annual #1 in 1996.
Hitting comic shops this July – an all-new addition to the classic Marvels graphic novel written by Kurt Busiek and fully painted by Alex Ross! And it’s a “Marvels” look at the “all-new, all-different” X-Men of the 1970s! In this 16-page story, Alex and Kurt bring Marvel’s world to brilliant, realistic life one last time, as the now-retired Phil Sheldon and his daughters, in Manhattan to see the Christmas lights, find themselves in the middle of a clash between the outsider heroes and the deadly Sentinels, giving them a close-up perspective on the mutant experience. Also featuring a behind-the-scenes look at the making of this special story, and other bonus features.
For the past two days, Marvel has been releasing teasers with the tag “No Compromise. No Mercy” While we thought it was numerous series to be launched, it looks like it’ll be one new team featuring all of these characters and one more mystery.
Daimon Hellstrom, aka the Son of Satan, is getting his own series on Hulu, so it’s not surprising he’d be getting more of a spotlight. With Blade and a recently ended Ghost Rider-centric Avengers storyline, it’s clear Marvel has its sites set on its horror side of things.
Winter Soldier’s recent mini-series was fantastic and the character has been popular due Marvel films. But, he’s not a character who has really had a strong series on his own (that was entitled Captain America).
We’ll find out more on June 11 as to exactly what’s going on. Guesses as to who will be the last member?
Marvel Comics has been releasing teasers with the tag line of “No Compromise, No Mercy” for the past day. The images are likely what we can expect once the War of the Realms storyline wraps up and the publisher begins their next major initiative.
We’ll find out more on June 11, but lets have some fun and make some predictions of what might be going on.
Blade has been in the spotlight as part of the Avengers and the recent “War of the Vampires” storyline. Dracula is building a new nation so that storyline needs to be resolved. Marvel also is focusing more on its horror side with two television projects and a new rumored Blade film.
There has been a scrapped comic series that was to feature Blade’s daughter, so might we see a new series starring Blade? Our guess is yes as it’s the most logical direction to see what Dracula is up to. With such a set-up, there needs to be follow up.
Monica Rambeau stole the show in the Captain Marvel film but the character has been rather absent in comics. She’s generally been part of teams and been seen with Blue Marvel. It’s beyond time she gets the spotlight and we’re expecting at least a mini-series out of this.
With a rumored Young Avengers film in the works, it’s beyond time the team is brought back together for a new run. With the focus on younger readers, expect a series geared towards them with a focus on relationships, issues, and the usual fun. It’s exactly what we’d expect from the series.
Angela was the hot character when Marvel purchased her from Neil Gaiman after her weird situation in Spawn. She’s been a part of a few series and headed up her own, but it’s clear Marvel didn’t know what to do with her. With her adopted nation of Hevan taking part in War of the Realms, there’ll be some post-war mop-up that’ll need to happen. Angela is absolutely getting another run at her own series.
Reeling from the aftermath of Chloe seeing his devil face, Lucifer faces a new challenge: Eve, the original sinner herself, is back. Does she want revenge for when he tempted her out of Eden oh so many years ago… or something else entirely?
Numerous Marvel editors took to Twitter showing off the same teaser. The title card that says “Acts of Evil!” hints at a new story event duringvJuly 2019.
For those who don’t know Marvel history, the font for the title and design pays an homage to the crossover event “Acts of Vengeance” which ran from December 1989 to February 1990 and had Marvel’s villains trading heroes and attacking each other’s rivals.
