A new teaser for Marvel's summer event Empyre has brought up a classic Avengers storyline - that of Mantis as the Celestial Madonna, and her role as the destined mother of "the most important being of the universe" - the Celestial Messiah.

Mantis later did give birth to the Celestial Messiah, mating with a member of the Colati race to beget a baby named Sequoia. Sequoia - or "Q" as he came to call himself - was last seen hiding out in a region of space known as the Rot in the 2002 limited series Avengers: Celestial Quest.

Marvel's Empyre event is scheduled to debut this April.
