This morning, Bleeding Cool looked at the identities of a couple of figures in Marvel's Incoming #1, out today. Bel-Dann and Raksor. Whose early appearances are currently burning up on eBay. Look at that, 99 cents. A lot of the fuss concerns a series of numbers being translated using a cypher code. And Mr Fantastic (and Arno Stark) eventually work it out.
But that cypher can also be applied to another code written in Incoming #1, by Raksor for Bel-Dann. Who are totally a couple in this comic book now.
Put that through the cypher and… ALL HAIL THE KING. Could that refer to the Marvel short film starring The Mandarin? Or is this Mephisto?
Or someone else entirely?

Incoming #1 is published today from Marvel Comics. I bought mine from Piranha Comics in Kingston-Upon-Thames. Piranha Comics is a small south London comic store chain with a small south-east store in Kingston-Upon Thames's market centre, which runs Magic The Gathering nights on Fridays, and a larger south-west store in Bromley, which also runs Magic nights and has an extensive back issue collection and online store. If you are in the neighbourhood, check them out.
