New Invaders Goes Back To Hiroshima And Nagasaki For Original Sin?


What is it with Hiroshima and Nagasaki having superheroic origins these days? Akira had the suggestion, and Maximortal kicked it off a while ago, but recently Superman Unchained picked it up.

And is All-New Invaders following suit? This Original Sin tie-in does seem to suggest something of that nature. Writer James Robinson says,

The Original Sin will involve the granddaughter of a 1940s Invader/Kid Commando named Golden Girl. This new character that I'm introducing has become one of the primary heroes of Japan. Her Japanese name is Supreme Radiant Friend. But she's known to America and toS.H.I.E.L.D. as just Radiance (designed by manga artist Retsu Tateoof Full Metal Panic fame).

Without giving too much away, the history of her grandmother and of Japan will play heavily into the Original Sin committed by all of the Invaders, including Jim Hammond and Namor.

As an extra hint, I will say that if people know the history of Captain America, he's the one person it won't include becau

se at this point in the past, Steve Rogers and Bucky were both assumed to be dead. If people know the history of the past, they'll be able to put a time element to the Sin it involves.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki, August 1945. Captain America would have been frozen by then… so what did the Invaders actually do?

Oh and I suppose the cover might offer a clue of some sort.
