In previews for Black Cat #2 from Marvel Comics, Felicia preps for her “heist” of the Sorcerer Supreme, and he or she’s packing one thing a bit of extra spectacular than batarangs and shark repellant. On a rooftop overlooking Knull’s symbiote-goo gulag, Felicia straps a ghost canine to her chest, packs a grenade filled with alien powers, after which jumps aboard a goblin glider stolen from Spider-Man’s nemesis.
Granted, Black Cat is not the weirdest hero to get their very own goblin glider not too long ago – that award goes to Avengers villain the Wrecker – however outfitted with that, the symbiote-dissolving Anti-Venom swimsuit, and Dr. Strange’s canine Bats, she’s packing instruments from all around the Marvel Universe, and completely ready for the mission forward of her. What’s so cool about this second is that as a longtime side-character, Black Cat is versatile sufficient that it would not harm her model to make use of devices created by different characters. Major heroes like Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Mr. Fantastic could typically lend one another one-time instruments, however they’re all so fastened in their very own contexts that writers can by no means push issues to their logical conclusion. As a much less established hero, Black Cat would not have that drawback, leaving her writers free to deal with Marvel canon just like the superior toybox it’s.
And not like Batman, who has a gritty street-hero mystique to take care of, Black Cat additionally is not restricted from counting on the weirdest doable sci-fi alien goo-suits or magic canine resurrected by Asgardian trickster gods. Felicia can and can seize something that will get the job executed, which leaves readers trying ahead to a difficulty during which the world’s biggest thief goes up in opposition to a literal god with the precise proper instruments for the heist at hand, bodily enhanced to a stage the place she may go toe-to-toe with Spider-Man, counting on a spectral hound to find her prey, and dropping from a fantastic peak after stealing a trip she’s at all times wished to attempt. Black Cat #2 hits shops and on-line January 20, and the King in Black will not know what hit him.
