Marvel Comics has released artwork by Javier Rodríguez for a new series starting this summer called Defenders. Not much information was given on the new series, but one could surmise from the teaser text Doctor Strange is attempting to put together a new team as it reads: WHO WILL ANSWER DOCTOR STRANGE’S CALL TO BE… THE NEW DEFENDERS!
Also, look to the tarot cards in the art and you’ll find numerous familiar characters like Namor, Hulk, Beast, Valkyrie, and Elisabeth Ross in her Red Hulk form.
Check out the art by Rodríguez below.
Might this project involve Al Ewing who introduced the Eternity Mask in Marvel Comics #1000? In that comic the Eternity Masked man was a key element and was teased quite a bit elsewhere as well. The solicit for that comic asked, “What is the Eternity Mask? And who is responsible for the conspiracy to keep it hidden?”
Likely we’ll find out more information soon.
