The mega-event at Marvel, Fear Itself, is about to wrap up with issue 7 due to drop next month. As such it’s finally time to figure out who will step up to save the day. Originally, Marvel released a promo entitled The Mighty with the silhouettes of 9 heroes. Looking at the shadows you could get an idea of who these character are, but today final promo picture was released showing all of the heroes with their new costumes. These costumes are a hybrid of Stark technology and Asgardian forged armor.
From left to right there is Ms. Marvel, Iron Fist, Dr. Strange, Iron Man, Wolverine, Red She-Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Spider-Man. These heroes are The Mighty who will be tasked with stopping the Serpent and his Fallen.
I think that some of these armor designs are pretty boring, but I’m a big fan of Iron Man’s new armor. This is one of the pieces that shows this truly a hybrid of Stark and Asgardian technology. Stark’s new armor looks like the body of the Destroyer fused with an Iron Man head. I think it looks great. Some of the ones that miss the mark specifically Spider-Man and Hawkeye. Spidey looks like he’d make a great Blue Lantern in his all blue costume with electric lighting and Hawkeye looks to have the same uniform but with Tron lights added on. Those two costumes miss the mark.
Overall, I’m looking forward to seeing how Fear Itself ends. My guess is that the Mighty will save the day at the end and after the Earth is saved their new armor/costumes are then destroyed or unusable. It seems highly unlikely that Asgardian technology would remain in mortal hands.
