The next soon-to-be New Warrior added to the site is the current Scarlet Spider, Kaine. I still need to add his checklist but I think I got all of his appearances. Everything post-Clone Saga from the ’90s has yet to be confirmed, and there are a few earlier appearances that I’m pretty sure I have but need to confirm too. But in broad strokes, I think it’s pretty accurate. Corrections welcome.
I’ve also updated the About page to more accurately reflect the present layout of the site.
Marvel.com posted a 2-part column titled “Open the High Evolutionary Journals” last week. They address the high concept of the series as well as what appears will be the main villain for this New Warriors team. The column breaks down each type of super-human, be it mutant, clone, Inhuman or what-have-you, and highlights one of the members of the new team as the “target specimen”. The Journals are written by New Warriors writer Christopher Yost, and include a preview of New Warriors #1 by artist Marcus To and cover artist Ramon Pérez. Here’s Part 1, and here’s Part 2.
To add to the growing buzz, the same preview pages are making the rounds on news sites, like Comic Book Resources and Comics Alliance, and also include a look at the three variant covers by To, Skottie Young and Chris Samnee.
New Warriors #1 will be on-sale in print and digitally on February 19th.
Time to start adding the soon-to-be New Warriors to the site. First up: Nova, aka Sam Alexander. None of the appearances have been confirmed yet but I’m fairly confident about what’s there so far, which is only under 20 appearances so not incredibly hard. Anyway, I hope to add more when I get the chance here and there. (Not looking forward to adding Kaine.)
