Not saying we're getting one. But a prominent role in Luke Cage and more Marvel Netflix TV appearance to come suggest that at some point Marvel Comics, which has strong ties to the TV division in a way that they don't with the movie division anymore, may consider a Misty Knight comic book.

If so, Captain America: Sam Wilson #16 may be a place to start.

And it starts by taking down Cap. Well, she has a metal arm. And most Captain Americas don't have that.

Including headlining a comic or two. But she's never had her own lead series. And this issue seems all about proving she has the chops.

Doing the research…captain-america-sam-wilson-2015-016-012

…. hitting the streets and torturing the perps, like any rogue agent might…

…and beating up lots of other superheroes (even if they are, you know, Life Model Decoys). And if this issue is well received, an a solo series be far behind?

Is a #GiveBackTheShieldToMisty hashtag in order? And what with Life Model Decoys coming to the fore in this comic and Marvel's Agents Of SHIELD, is a Westworld analogue on its way too?
