Another day, another round of slow burn reveals for Marvel’s November solicitations. We previously learned that CM Punk will write the Master of Kung Fu one-shot, one of a bunch of titles coming back for one issue only as part of Marvel Legacy. Now, we’ve got the creative team for Darkhawk #51: Chad Bowers, Chris Sims, and Kev Walker.
The news was revealed in an interview on Newsarama so EXCLUSIVE, it will require a the jaws of life to pry the website’s lips from Marvel’s butt. In that interview, Bowers reveals plans to turn this one-shot opportunity into an ongoing series:
“Obviously, we can’t tell you much, but more than anything else, this issue is about teeing up Chris Powell and the Darkhawk for this epic, universe spanning adventure that fans have been clamoring for since the original series ended. In the last decade, Darkhawk made some giant steps as a character that moved him out of the alleyways and into the stars, and it’s opened the door for a ton of new stories starring a guy I’m betting a lot of readers thought they’d seen the last of.”

Now, when two members of the Fraternity of Raptors descend on New York with designs on stealing the amulet and returning it to the stars, it’s not Darkhawk who has to rise to the challenge…it’s Chris Powell!
