We’ve already seen how Avengers #675 spinning out from Marvel Legacy will see the title become a weekly series for 2018 with the storyline No Surrender, the first month drawn by Pepe Larraz. And a cover which suggests a big change for the origins of Avengers.
A new figure, identified as Voyager.
And from Marvel Legacy #1, confirmation that the character has, somehow, been inserted into Marvel history.
Expect to find out more in a couple of days… how Voyager, whoever she is, twisted time around and changed the first stories of the Avengers. Was Loki involved? The Avengers were formed because of his actions and he does seem to have big plans in Marvel Legacy after all….
One might also wonder if she relates to Jewel as well, the superhero persona adopted by Jessica Jones which was similarly retconned into continuity, though this version appears to have some in-continuity intent behind it. Time travel? Revealed memory wipe? Anarchic sculptor? The truth will out. Maybe.
