Ahead of the character’s return in Last Of The Marvels, revisit Genis-Vell’s signature series by Peter David and Chriscross this November.
Last week, Marvel announced that The Last of the Marvels, an upcoming story arc in writer Kelly Thompson’s run on Captain Marvel, will feature the return of a fan-favorite former Captain Marvel: Genis-Vell.
When a mysterious new enemy begins targeting every hero with a connection to the Captain Marvel legacy, the son of the original Captain Marvel will resurface. Readers eager to learn more about the character’s rich history will be able to do so this November with Genis-Vell: Marvel Tales #1.
This latest Marvel Tales installment will collect the opening issues of writer Peter David and artist Chriscross character-defining 2000s series which saw Genis-Vell rise as a prominent hero in the Marvel Universe.
‘Meet the son of the greatest warrior the galaxy has ever known! Spawned in a test tube, Genis-Vell now struggles to fill the boots of his late father Mar-Vell — the original Kree Captain Marvel! Genis has inherited Mar-Vell’s greatest gift, cosmic awareness — which might be enough to make him go mad, if he didn’t have Rick Jones along for the ride.
But sharing a body, and switching places back and forth from the Negative Zone, might drive them both crazy! Get ready for Peter David and Chriscross’ hilarious saga featuring the Hulk, Wendigo, Moondragon…and Rick’s estranged wife, Marlo!’
The Marvel Tales anthology series shines a spotlight on fan-favorite characters, features timeless stories, and highlights some of Marvel’s most impressive talent from the past eight decades.
