The Mysterious Avengers Big Bad: Another Contender

There has been a fair bit of speculation about that big flying snake whatchamacallit at the end of the most recent Avengers trailer.

Some have guessed, quite reasonably, Fin Fang Foom.

Others have said, with equal credibility, the Midgard Serpent.

Well, I was flicking through Avengers #17 earlier today, because it was free, and I noticed this.

In case that’s too squinty for you, here’s the gist:

Sin, the daughter of The Red Skull, has unleashed an ancient evil into the world – The forgotten Asgardian God known only as The Serpent!

Well, I’m not saying it is, and I’m not saying it isn’t.

I’m just saying – anything’s possible.
