New Pages: Hummingbird and Sun Girl

Two more soon-to-be New Warriors pages are up: Aracely (aka Hummingbird) and Sun Girl. Both were co-created by Christopher Yost, who is writing the upcoming series. Aracely has been a sorta-sidekick to Kaine (I may always call him Kaine) in the pages of Scarlet Spider. Sun Girl showed up in the first issue and a subsequent three-part story arc told in Superior Spider-Man Team-Up, where it was revealed she is the daughter of Lightmaster*, a frequent Spider-Man villain. So, that means this New Warriors team consists of three characters with close ties to the Spider-Man corner of the Marvel Universe.

*Lightmaster himself has somewhat of a New Warriors connection. He fought Cloak and Dagger in a three-part back-up story set in Genetech (Amazing Spider-Man Annual #26, Spectacular Spider-Man Annual #12 and Web of Spider-Man Annual #8, which also have the main story starring Spider-Man and the New Warriors, The Hero Killers). These stories are all collected in Spider-Man & the New Warriors: Hero Killers.

New Page: Kaine

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.
