Marvel’s Dark Ages preview reveals death of Avenger and villain
The preview for the second issue of the series by Tom Taylor and Iban Coello reveals that a popular MCU Avenger and a villain have died in this universe.
Marvel Comics’ Dark times # 2 has killed major players in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, both at the forefront of the franchise’s 2021 plans.
A preview of the issue gives readers an insight into the consequences of losing power to all of Earth’s electronic components. Battles began to be fought between heroes and villains, even ordinary citizens, which would result in the world building of a unified society that lasted for seven years, according to Peter Parker at the end of the first issue of the series. However, the first page of the preview reveals that not everyone has had the chance to see this world and has met an untimely fate beforehand, including the villainous Avenger, Hawkeye and Marvel, Taskmaster.
Having his first appearance as a villain in the 1954s Tales of Suspense # 57 before later becoming a hero, Hawkeye has been launched further into the public spotlight since his MCU debut, played by Jeremy Renner. While he first appeared in 2011 Thor, it was in 2012 The Avengers which featured him as a character in his own right, though the Archer was under mind control and acted against his future teammates for much of the film. In November, he will be featured in his first solo series streaming on Disney +, Hawk Eye, which will be released on the platform on November 24. Of course, he will be joined by Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld), who has also taken over Hawkeye in the comics.
The other victim of the general panic was Taskmaster, who, unlike Hawkeye, has mostly remained a villain since his first appearance in The Avengers # 195 in 1980. In the comics, the villain’s name is Anthony “Tony” Masters and has the ability to mimic and recreate the fighting style of anyone, hero or villain. While the villain was recently adapted into live-action for this year Black Widow, Taskmaster’s identity was interchanged between the sexes and changed to become the daughter of the film’s main antagonist, Dreykov, although she still had the abilities of a Master of Comics.
While these two appear to have lost their lives on the show, the preview also features heroes like Captain America, the X-Men, Ms. Marvel, Deadpool, and others who work to unify the audience, as well as Peter Parker. training his daughter, May. , in his new awesome costume. In the current Spider Man run, the latest issue of writer Nick Spencer, The Incredible Spider-Man # 74, revealed that May has the potential to be one of the world’s greatest heroes, so much so that the devil Mephisto fears her existence. Readers will need to continue to see if she will play a similar role in Dark times also. The overview and solicitation for the problem can be found below.
