At Marvel, the king is dead. “Long Live the King”
Today in Marvel’s “mysterious teases without any context,” we have a crowned figure seated upon a throne, scepter in hand. There’s a red cape or rug laid at his feet, and a… weird alien eye on the end of a stalk. Who could this be?
The red cape is evocative of Doctor Strange, but I don’t think it’s him. The character- - who is an all black silhouette- - has an oval-shaped head. Could it be Baron Zemo? He’s been active in the pages of The Punisher, and recently re-formed the Thunderbolts. I don’t know. Probably not. Maybe it’s just post-Con delusion, but we’ll find out for sure this November.
