Marvel teases ‘Genis-Vell: Marvel Tales’ #1 out this November

Meet the son of the greatest warrior the galaxy has ever known!

Press Release

Today, Marvel Comics has teased an upcoming one-shot in the Marvel Tales line that’ll focus on Genis-Vell. This character is returning in a big way in the Captain Marvel series which Marvel teased back in July. Marvel Tales is a monthly line of reprint comics that align with current or upcoming stories at Marvel.

In Kelly Thompson and Sergio Dávila’s upcoming story arc “The Last of the Marvels,” a mysterious new enemy begins targeting every hero with a connection to the Captain Marvel legacy which forces the son of the original Captain Marvel to resurface. The new Marvel Tales one-shot by Peter David and Crisscross aims to catch readers up on this character.

So what’s Genis-Vell: Marvel Tales #1 about?

Meet the son of the greatest warrior the galaxy has ever known! Spawned in a test tube, Genis-Vell now struggles to fill the boots of his late father Mar-Vell — the original Kree Captain Marvel! Genis has inherited Mar-Vell’s greatest gift, cosmic awareness — which might be enough to make him go mad, if he didn’t have Rick Jones along for the ride. But sharing a body, and switching places back and forth from the Negative Zone, might drive them both crazy! Get ready for Peter David and Chriscross’ hilarious saga featuring the Hulk, Wendigo, Moondragon…and Rick’s estranged wife, Marlo!
