If you've been following the steady stream of teaser images for the upcoming Marvel NOW! slate of comic book titles, you've probably noticed a pattern.
Each double-sided "Divided We ..." image from artist Mike Deodato released thus far has shown a hero and a supposed villain. We're unveiling the newest image right here: It showcases the onetime Man-Thing bit player and, more recently, Deadpool's personal shrink, Foolkiller, and Nadia Pym, aka The New Wasp. Hank Pym's long-lost daughter's murky origin was revealed in All-New, All-Different Avengers #9.
Something interesting to note about this image: Up to now, the teasers have all shown characters known as heroes in the top half. Assuming most people would view the New Wasp as being squarely on the Hero side, this one does not. A bit of foreshadowing by Marvel?
We don't know, and the House of Ideas isn't saying. All Marvel told us is that these preview images represent characters they are "comfortable saying they will be important in the fall." That's when the Marvel NOW! titles debut.
We expect more details to be revealed around San Diego Comic-Con, so keep checking Blastr for updates.
