GUARDIAN OF THE GALAXY Rounds Out MARVEL NOW! POINT ONE
combinedUpdate 4, July 20: And here's the final piece of the Marvel NOW! Point One puzzle, and it really shouldn't be a surprise if you've been paying attention: Star-Lord, part of the Guardians of the Galaxy — the space-bound team set to star in a 2014 live-action movie from Marvel Studios. Though we don't know which creators correspond with which characters, Brian Michael Bendis has been writing the Guardians of the Galaxy over in Avengers Assemble — and has expressed personal fondness for the character of Peter Quill — so there's something of a natural connection to be made there. iFanboy, here's the latest Marvel NOW! Point One cover reveal, featuring Kid Loki, Wiccan of the Young Avengers and Miss America Chavez from the recent Vengeance miniseries. The presence of the young Loki certainly suggest he's staying that way for a while longer, rather than returning to his more recognizable adult form. iFanboy speculated that Kieron Gillen, who's writing Loki over in a Journey Into Mystery run that wraps in October and is listed as one of the Point One creators, may be involved with whatever forthcoming project is attached to these three characters. With one spot left remaining, check back with Newsarama on Friday to see who fills the final question mark. this past weekend at Comic-Con. Of course, it begs the question: Which Ant-Man is this? Hank Pym is currently Giant-Man, but he's been known to switch identities quickly (that's kind of his thing). Current Secret Avengers developments have placed Eric O'Grady in an interesting position, and Scott Lang is back to life as of Avengers: The Children's Crusade. With two question marks left and two days left this work week, it's a safe bet that we'll see see the full cover by Friday. Marvel NOW! teaser. There are still four question marks left to go, and look for another significant clue Tuesday on Newsarama. Here are more details, direct from Marvel: MARVEL NOW! POINT ONE #1
