New Marvel Teaser Heralds a Hero’s Long-Awaited Return – Spinning out of « Avengers: Standoff, » a hero will make a long-awaited return to Marvel Comics, and it appears they’ll be connected to the Nova Corps.
With the title « A Long Awaited Return… », the teaser features a golden cross on a black background; the cross echoes the (generally red) symbol on the Nova Corps’ helmet, much like the one Sam Alexander wears in « All-New, All-Different Avengers. »
The teaser also references « Avengers: Standoff, » which concludes in next Wednesday’s « Avengers Standoff: Assault on Pleasant Hill Omega » #1, so it seems we’ll soon learn who will be making a big return.
Several Nova Corps members are currently unaccounted for, including fan-favorite Richard Rider. Additionally, the solicitation text for Mark Waid and Mahmud Asrar’s « All-New, All-Different Avengers » #10 teases « The Search for Nova’s father, » which implies the Avengers will get word that Jesse Alexander is alive.
Of course, the teaser could have nothing to do with the Nova Corps; the image could just as well tease the return of Quasar, the original Captain Marvel, Darkhawk or someone else entirely.
« Avengers: Standoff » draws to a close in « Avengers Standoff: Assault on Pleasant Hill Omega » #1, which goes on sale April 27.
