Marvel has debuted a first look at it's newest femme fatale, Red Widow (via The Mary Sue), set to make her debut in Mockingbird: S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary #1.
Little is known about the character, however author Margaret Stohl, who will use the character in her upcoming YA prose novel Black Widow: Forever Red shared her thoughts on Red Widow.
“The Red Widow is a powerful new female superhero for the Marvel universe,” said Stohl. “In many ways, she’s the opposite of the Black Widow—she actually chooses to become the Red Widow—but both Widows share a mysterious bond and a history, and will change the course of each other’s lives, moving forward. And of course, this is just the beginning for this enigmatic and deadly new character. Red Widow’s story first emerges within the pages of Mockingbird: S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary #1, and will then be featured in my upcoming (prose) novel, Black Widow: Forever Red. I couldn’t be prouder of both Widows—and of Marvel Comics, for being so supportive of the two of them.”
Mockingbird: S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary #1 hits shelves September 2, 2015.
