The sci-fi and horror icon that is the Predator is coming to Marvel this year. To celebrate, the publishing giant will have a special slate of covers hitting.
Joining the cadre of characters that’ve been making the jump from Dark Horse to Marvel is the Predator. The classic movie monster is a huge get for Marvel. After all, he might be a bigger comics star than he’s ever been in film… well as long as you don’t count the original that is.
And that rich history is now giving way to a Marvel Age for the alien hunter, though in what way is a bit of a mystery. It’s seemed like Predator will be a part of the Marvel Universe before, though it’s hazy at best. He might just be a standalone property, existing alongside Marvel’s slate of superhero books. Then again, I thought that with Conan, so…
In any event, he’s coming up, and that means Marvel will be capitalizing. Expect to see a slate of variant covers to celebrate Predator’s arrival, including on books like Amazing Spider-Man, Miles Morales, and Fantastic Four.
Here’s a sneak peek:
No matter how you might feel about Predator potentially joining the 616, you have admit there’s some cool stuff here. Personally, I think that Miles cover is the winner in the cool department, but maybe that’s just me.
