"The brave honor the sacrifices of those in their hearts…" Today sees the publication of Marvel Comics Timeless #1, the big end-of-year volume that sets up much of what will be coming in upcoming Marvel Comics titles, in the manner that Marvel Now #1, Marvel Comics #100, and Incoming #1 in recent years did. And there are plenty of teases as to what is coming in Marvel Comics over the months to come. And Bleeding Cool will be breaking lots of them down with the Timeless tag today. Warning, there are spoilers.
And the world shown here seems to show Shuri as a new Black Panther, but also a red-haired woman taking on a Spider-Man role. The most obvious candidate would be Mary Jane Watson. With Ben Reilly leaving New York for Hollywood after a fight with Peter Parker – how serious was that fight? In the Black Panther comics, T'Challa is off-world meeting the X-Men and his former wife Storm on the planet of Mars, now renamed Arakko. It seems that Shuri may have stepped up. But what sacrifice will Peter Parker and T'Challa have made? The ultimate one?
That's one take. The other is that these are the future children of Peter Parker and Mary Jane, and of T'challa and Storm. Annie May or Mayday, and Queen Panther. Which interpretation do you prefer?
