Another original title from the front lines of Battleworld is coming and this time from the minds of critically acclaimed writer Gerry Duggan (Deadpool, Hulk, Nova) and rising star artist Nik Virella (Return of the Living Deadpool). Why am I so excited about this?! It’s set in the old west! Marvel characters we know and love in a way we’ve never seen them before! I’m a sucker for reimagining of worlds!
The old west tale is set in the frontier town of Timely where local sheriff Steve Rogers makes an effort to clean up his town of the corruption that runs rampant among the grit and gristle of everyday life, something casino owner Wilson Fisk, disagrees with. The dynamic in Timely is about to change when the mysterious stranger Red Wolf shows up.
Quite frankly I think it’s awesome Marvel is bringing back Red Wolf, (some of you may have spotted him in the All-New All-Different Marvel promo we shared last week) with the company seeking to promote diversity more and more lately, it only seems fitting that one of the earliest Native American heroes makes a comeback. Red Wolf made its debut appearance in Avengers #80 in the story “The Coming of Red Wolf” and was created by Roy Thomas and John Buscema.
