All-New Guardians Of The Galaxy #12 is meant to reveal a new teammate for the cosmic team from the wide Marvel universe. But who is it? Well, Marvel Comics has issued the following press release.
Who Will Be The Next Guardian? Look Closely…
Your first look at the cover for All-New Guardians of the Galaxy #12 reveals an all-new teammate!
They’re earth’s mightiest heroes – in space, and beyond! And the Guardians are adding a new member to their team that will make them mightier, as one of Marvel’s best-loved heroes will make the biggest impact when he debuts in ALL-NEW GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #12.
The Guardians have been tasked with some wacky and big adventures while doing the Grandmaster’s bidding, which includes stealing from The Collector – and Star-Lord even accidently destroyed one of his favorite mix-tapes. Now, as they prepare for their Legacy arc THE INFINITY QUEST, they’ll have to team up with the group that has been on their tails – the Nova Corps – as well as one ex-Avenger if they want to keep the universe safe.
“We’re excited to have an Avenger joining the ranks of the Guardians…or is it the Nova Corps? Or both? Oh, you’ll see,” teased editor Jordan D. White. “Just know, he beat out some stiff competition, as you can tell by that cover of issue #12!”
Who exactly is this Avenger? One of the five Marvel superstars on this cover should give you a hint…
They say five. But you count four. They did say to look closely… Because Bleeding Cool has called it for either Scott Lang Ant Man or Black Ant, Both have been Avengers. And if you look on Man-Thing’s shoulder…
Yoo hoo. Here is the image we reckon back out theory even further from the subsequent issue solicitation – that’s right it jumps from #12 to #146… welcome to Marvel Legacy.
Especially since Marvel then pulled that image and replaced it with the following…
Fans have been calling ALL-NEW GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY “a thrill ride – funny and fun” (AiPT) and “a must-read series for any Guardians fans” (Comics: The Gathering). Don’t miss the story that elevates an already epic story to another dimension, when ALL-NEW GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY hits comic shops on October 18th!
