>it's a new mysterious person using an old identity plot
Can someone explain to me what the motivation behind this is? No one actually believes that Danny Rand is gonna be Daredevil longer than a few months or whatever. Do they think we're gonna buy purely on seeing a different character's word sin the speech bubbles?
Of all of the cheap comic tricks this is the one that has always worked the least for me.
Danny Rand may be new Daredevil.
But he's not new Man Without Fear of Hell's Kitchen.
It theoretically boosts sales. It worked for Thor, although that was probably more motivated by the "gasp shock, thor is a GURL" than the actual mystery.
What I'm wondering is why they can never make the mystery itself compelling. It always turns out to be some other hero dressing up to blah blah blah. The Jane Foster reveal was basically a non-event.
I thought Echo is Black Panther?
Not sure is this fan edit or official.
I'd be very interested to see this done as a long-term thing. It'd be ballsy of Marvel, and they desperately need to be more ballsy. But having a non-black character assume a traditionally "black" identity permanently would be challenging preconceptions a lot, unlike the hackneyed "replace male with female" or "replace white with other ethnicity" which are "safe" stories.
Marvel do it pretty much non-stop. They did it with Thor, cap, Spidey, Hulk and DD just within the last decade. I'm just waiting for the new mysterious Iron Man plot to happen and then it turns out it's Rhodey or Pepper.
Sue is way too OP to be Black Panther. He's a street-level Daredevil type, she's capable of destroying Celestials with her mind. Running around doing acrobatics and punching people is way beneath her.
Like someone said, they don't make the mystery compelling. It's usually obvious who it will be or otherwise nothing too interesting is done with it since it's just a temporary status quo.
wait danny is the new daredevil? like hes one training that new guy in soule's run?
Well I almost think it was mercy on his part. He knew no one else would use her, so he didn't want her to fade into obscurity. She died instead, but The Hand can always vring her back. Just hope some writer does it in the future.
If I suffered through Civil War, everyone should.
There was that Lady Punisher recently. Redhead, forgot name. Iron Man has Rescue/Pepper, but both of them never headlined book, to my knowledge. I may be wrong. And no idea about Strange.
they should do the contrary. Instead of a different secret identity for an existing superhero a different superhero takes over an existing identity.
Instead of, say, Jonathan Chandler is the new Invisible woman, we have Moon Knight is the new peter parker
hmm, repressed Scotland nation that somehow repelled the Viking invasions despite everyone else falling before them. Their secret weapon was GOD, Galactic Orthogonal Destabilization ore. With it, they repel every invasion to their small mountain.
Fuck, Brian Wood has to put this into his Northlanders comics now.
