Marvel Comics debuted a new Marvel Legacy cover Friday that teases “The Death of The Mighty Thor” in an image illustrated by Stephanie Hans.
The Thor featured in the image is of course legacy hero Jane Foster, who has been undergoing unsuccessful cancer treatments when she’s not under the guise of the God of Thunder. This mirrors, like the cover itself, “The Death of Captain Marvel,” a storyline in which the titular hero, Mar-Vell, dies of cancer in the wake of a fight with the villainous Nitro.
Take a look at the Marvel Legacy Mighty Thor cover below — and let the speculation begin!
“A new initiative that will take things back to our iconic history, with a firm eye on the future, Marvel Legacy will present stories that remind everyone — newcomers and longtime fans alike — why Marvel stands as the premier name in fiction,” Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso said in an earlier press release. “Our titles will unearth gems from Marvel’s rich history, remind readers of connections between characters, and usher in the return of some major characters who’ve been missed. Above all else, we want to inject our comics with a massive dose of fun!”
