Marvel has released a new teaser image for November’s “Point One” one-shot, this time spotlighting the comics story by the “Defenders” team of Matt Fraction and Terry Dodson. While members of the core team are obviously present, they seem to be joined by Ant-Man and Nick Fury, two characters previously unrevealed to be involved in the new series, though the title will involve an “ancient conspiracy,” which the sort of thing Fury often finds himself dealing with.
This follows previous teasers, each highlighting other creative teams’ contributions to the anthology designed to set the stage for the next year of Marvel Universe stories: Brian Michael Bendis and Bryan Hitch’s tale starring multiple Ultrons and Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness’ story featuring Nova.
