Official Press Release
The fans spoke and Marvel listened.
In November 2005, Marvel.com conducted a poll to determine the character that fans wanted to see revamped in the pages of AMAZING FANTASY — the revived title that introduced the red-hot ARAÑA to the world, before she spun off into her own series.
Fans elected The Scorpion for the revamp treatment, over the other three contenders of Kraven, The Cat, and Werewolf by Night.
Marvel Senior Editor Mark Paniccia, who oversees AMAZING FANTASY, was assigned the daunting task of revamping a classic character in limited time, “We ended up with an outstanding creative team and storyline. This character is everything we hoped for and more. We have a sexy character rich with mystery and a suspenseful storyline that will take readers on a wild, jet-setting ride across the globe!”
The all-new, all-different Scorpion is set to debut in AMAZING FANTASY #7, on sale April 4th, 2005. The six-issue arc written by Fred Van Lente and illustrated by Leonard Kirk introduces Carmilla Black, who — after the vicious murder of her adoptive parents –discovers her biological mother is the top scientist of the worldwide terrorist network, A.I.M. Now, to unravel the secrets of her true identity and mysterious power, she’s hot on the heels of her enigmatic mother, with S.H.I.E.L.D. hot on her trail, hoping she’ll lead them right to the terrorists’ leadership! The stunning cover for the issue is provided by James Jean.
