Mysterious Teaser Heralds the Marvel Universe's New King

In its latest teaser, Marvel Comics has issued a decree: "Love live the King." However, we don't know exactly who that king is just yet.

The new teaser finds a mysterious figure sitting on a golden throne. The figure is merely a silhouette, leaving the character's identity a secret. This character wears a crown and wields a scepter, like your run-of-the-mill king, but their throne room is anything but ordinary.
