Updated September 9, 2015 at 5:36 PM EST: Marvel has issued a new variant cover for Red Wolf #1 by Dale Keown.

Original Story: After reintroducing him in the current 1872 series, Marvel's Native American character Red Wolf is getting his own ongoing series, according to Mashable. The series will be written by Nathan Edmondson and artist Dalibor Talajic, with Native American artist Jeffrey Veregge doing covers.

With the series set to launch in December, Red Wolf was one of a select few Marvel characters featured in the "All-New All-Different Marvel" announcement images, speaking to the publisher's focus on the character.

"There's not a character like Red Wolf out there right now," said Veregge. "As a native, I’m really excited to see that he can do things, he can figure out things and stand with Captain America, and hold his own in this universe. That’s what’s awesome about it: You have all these characters of different nationalities and ethnicities, but it’s not all about their culture. It’s about them being a hero."

Although Red Wolf is Native American, Marvel has chosen not to have him identified with any actual tribe but instead a fictional one from the 1872 universe he comes from.

"Nobody should go to this looking as its historical," said Edmondson. "He comes from another dimension, after all. But it's very important for us to approach it in as authentic a way as possible. Jeffery offers this, and not just for consultation, but with his creative input — his covers jump out from 100 feet away."
