As today sees HitFix reduced the amount of to-be-announced Secret Wars titles down to 8. Oh, and we get a lead female character. Just not one that anyone was expecting. Written by Gerry Duggan, Hitfix didn't think mentioning the artist was important, but the cover is demonstrably by Reilly Brown.
Into this fray, a new challenger appears! The Queen of the Monster Metropolis below Manhattan has entered Battleworld and she is not amused. Shiklah — known to some as Mrs. Deadpool — returns in her all-new solo comic by Gerry Duggan.
And who are her colleagues?
The roster is Jack Russell as Werewolf by Night, the Living Mummy, and Frankenstein — who has been fun to write. He's a dumb guy but he seems to have some deep wisdom. And then I'm bringing back a character called Marcus the Unbeatable Centaur. He has no weakness other than that he's diabetic. He has a really fun part in this particular story as well.
I wonder if they'll bring us a Fantastic Four-related Secret Wars book at all…
