About an hour ago, a teaser image of Nova as the new Man Without Fear (I believe the same one that was shown at SDCC) was released (see, for instance, CBR).
I mentioned my own theories about this a couple of posts ago, and I can’t say I feel differently now. I’m still pretty solidly in the I’m-sure-something-is-up-but-it-isn’t-what-it-looks-like camp.
Another thing, this kind of bizarre hype (though it’s having the opposite effect on me, go figure) annoys me more than anything. I think what I feel is close to what my eighteen-year-old cat feels every time I make a futile attempt to entertain her with something a kitten might enjoy. She gives me a bored yet surprisingly superior look that seems to say “Are you serious with this?”
Really, Marvel? You’re turning me into a cynic here. And thus ends by far the most negative post I’ve written on this blog.
