Marvel has provided CBR with an exclusive first look at artist Mark Brooks' cover for "Fearless Defenders" #5, a "Street Fighter" homage featuring every female Marvel hero appearing in the issue.
"Fearless Defenders" writer Cullen Bunn and artist Will Sliney teased a number of guest stars in a recent Q&A session with CBR forum members, and in the cover below, readers get to see who exactly they were referring to.
"Kate Bishop (aka the Young Avengers' Hawkeye) and Dazzler were both on the list at one point, but their involvement in other books changed that." However, Bunn was quick to note, "I'm not sure there are any real 'can't gets.' Even if they can't be on the team because of other involvement (like Gamora), there is nothing to say they couldn't appear as a guest star."
