The White Tiger is unleashed against an old enemy in the next issue of Mighty Avengers.
This February, the White Tiger unleashes her inner beast in MIGHTY AVENGERS #7 – from rising star writer Al Ewing and critically acclaimed artist Valerio Schiti! For years, Ava Ayala has shouldered a tragic loss — her parents and brother, the original White Tiger, were butchered at the hands of militia leader Gideon Mace. Now a member of the Mighty Avengers, Ava honors her noble family legacy by protecting the world as the new White Tiger. But when Gideon Mace reappears, White Tiger will hunts for vengeance! Channeling the power of an ancient god of fear and bloodlust, she seeks to end Mace’s reign of terror once and for all! But will she lose her soul in the process? The hunt is on – and the quest for vengeance begins this February in MIGHTY AVENGERS #7!
So this is kind of an origin story in a way for White Tiger then. I’m honestly not all that familiar with the character, so that’s just fine by me. I will say that her look is pretty striking and I don’t think she’s ever really been fleshed out in any big way, at least not recently.
I kind of feel like Mighty Avengers has taken a huge back seat to the other Avengers books out there too, so it’s about time that it got a unique character on the center stage that sets it apart at least a little bit. White Tiger is also a female character, which is great too as headlining female heroes still aren’t really the most commonplace of things in the Marvel U. Here’s to hoping that she’s not a flash in the pan for the Mighty Avengers.
Check out what happens and hear the Tiger roar when Mighty Avengers #7 hits stands on February 26th from the team of Al Ewing and Valerio Schiti.
