AlphaFlight.net - Northstar To Appear In Secret Wars
  • Northstar To Appear In Secret Wars?


    Bleeding Cool have an early look at Marvel's main Free Comic Book Day offering for 2015; Secret Wars#0 by Jonathan Hickman & Paul Renaud.

    The last double page spread in it reveals features a cast of the heroes flying into battle and Northstar is included with them, so we know that he definitely appears in the free #0.

    It's presumed that this will lead straight into #1 so there's a chance he'll appear in that and possibly the rest of the main series.



    This does however open up the fact that there will be a staggering amount of variants to collect for #1; many store-exclusives.

    FCBD is on May 2nd.
    To find your local participating store to get #0 for free visit their website.


    UPDATE: The scene was more figurative than literal and the scene doesn't lead directly into #1, so no Northstar there unfortunately.

      She's missing her cape, but given that there's a mix of characters there (Shi'ar and an Egyptian), I'm going with either that's Snowbird, or an Asgardian Snowbird, or an Asbirdian Snowgard.

      Probably Snowbird, though.

      I'm thinking its Thor Girl minus the Cape

      Doesn't Thor Girl just look like Thor? So she'd be pretty much red and black, no headdress?

      What's going on in that page, btw? Looks like a meeting at the bar of the gods?

      Here's Thor Girl...

      Thanks, K-M-!
      Hmm... that's more convincing than the pic in my head (that second one is Art Adams, right?), but note that, in that costume her headdress is feathers and her costume is blue on the outside, white inside; it's Snowbird who's white outside and blue inside, and has a solid headdress that's not feathers.
      And if all my years of comic collecting have taught me nothing else, it's that superheroes can't change clothes!

      Also, note round vs. pointy shoulders (the superhero match for the ages, coming soon to an event near you!)

      Yeah I'm hoping its snowbird but wouldn't put it past it being Thor girl as a new costume.

      All the other Thors have capes and judging from Secret Wars so far the Thors don't tend to be in domains unless sent by Doom, so I don't think it is Thor Girl, but chances are pretty slim that it's Snowbird.

      Well technically Thor girl isn't asgardian or a member of the Thor corps

      Yes, Thor girl is a human, I don't want to spoil who if people don't know who but pretty obvious (I don't even know much about the character and thought it was one of two people, one Asgardian and one not).

      I think you're on about Thor rather than Thor Girl, Mokole.
      Two different characters.

      Thanks, Phil! I thought that was the case, but some of the posts started to confuse me (and I don't know enough about the Thors to be sure).

      Yeah, but neither are Storm, Groot or War Machine yet they're all Thors, so I think Thor Girl stands a decent chance.

      Groot and War Machine are Thors?
      Or are they jutht thor becauthe they bit their tongueth?

      (No, really, the first question - they've picked up the hammer, I take it?)

      Pretty sure Thor Girl's on the top left of the cover to SW #2 too.

      True. But they apparently have their own mjlonir. Thor girl doesn't have anything like that but they might just be ignoring that and gave her own

      That 2pg spread shown in the article above was re-drawn in Captain America & The Avengers #009, which came out today, and you can see Northstar in the corner. There's a Capgwen variant too.

      I'm not alone in the thinking that's Snowbird in Inhumans... #2, ComicVine have her listed:

      I caught that too, and it certainly looks like Snowbird sans her cape.
