Two weeks ago, Bleeding Cool broke the news that the King In Black finale and its crossover issues were being delayed. Newsarama just noticed a couple fo days ago. But does that mean there is a thinning out this week? Not a bit of it. Though some of the crossovers may be more crossovery than others.
King In Black: Namor #4 twists and turns over what has created The Black Tide, with not a symbiote in sight, just some white-on-black speech balloons and a ganrly looking sword at some point.
While Felicia Hardy in Black Cat #3, gaining direct Ashardian power may be a greater threat than Knull. But is definitely not the God Of Light.
And neither is Monica Rambeau, making a very well-timed return to Marvel Comics in her Captain Marvel days, back in King In Black: Symbiote Spider-Man #3 – and shows she can take take out Knull-related creatures as well.
Looks like Marvel could have done with this God Of Light as well.
You know it's a surprise that no one else mentioned Knull back then…
Given the Valkyries also know him of old, in King In Black: Return Of The Valkyries #3.
Still, as long as they keep on filling in the gaps…
