Do you remember my post a month ago concerning Nova leaving the Secret Avengers and asking the question: Will Darkhawk take his place? Well folks, I am not alone in this thought process. Even better still is that there are more signs that this possibility is closer to being true as new issues come out.
CosmicBookNews breaks down the recent thoughts, from the point of view of none other than Steve Rogers himself via the new issue of Heroic Age: Heroes.
- Steve mentions the events that played out during War of Kings, the awakening of the Fraternity of Raptors, and Chris’ connection to the Order via the amulet.
- Steve mentions that Darkhawk used to be an Avenger (West Coast) and the fact that he is human, “deserves” our help.
- Steve also says that he will encourage Nova to put him in contact with Darkhawk!
- At the end of Secret Avengers #4 with Nova flying off to deal with more cosmic stuff, Steve and Sharon Carter discussed needing another cosmic hero to replace Nova.
First off, now I need to pick up the Heroic Age: Heroes single issue. I need to read this stuff myself with dreamy eyes of hopefulness! Second, the only way I’d buy an Avengers book is if Darkhawk was a regular. Nothing against the Avengers perse, I just don’t care much for Marvel continuity “proper”. Too much all over the place. I’d love to see Darkhawk back on a team though… any team.
