Fred Van Lente Chaos War Fear Itself Spinoff: Hercules "Reborn" Team Book?
Chaos War #5 hits today..err..tomorrow and according to what writer Fred Van Lente and Associate Editor Ben Morse have tweeted, there looks to be a spinoff title from Van Lente.
Here is Ben's tweet:
And Here is Fred's:
FVL this Wed: Chaos War #5 (of 5) ... and a BIG announcement!
We know from Fred Van Lente's previous tweets that it seems as if a Hercules, or "Incredible Hercules" book is out of the question.
We know that fellow writer Greg Pak gets the Surfer which begins in February.
I would say it has to be a mini - most likely starring the Lion of Olympus - and whoever lives after Chaos War concludes. Most likely it will be the surviving cast from the Dead Avengers, Dead X-Men and Alpha Flight. For those out of the loop, the Chaos King attacked all of reality - including Death's - which "freed" some long lost heroes. They starred in various tie-ins to the main Chaos War mini.
Amadeus Cho heads over to Incredible Hulks with #626 or 627. Of course, that doesn't mean he could be in Fred's new book as well.
Note: The April Previews Catalog (on-sale next week) lists a "Herc #1" that will be on-sale April 6th for $3.99 followed by #2 April 20th for #2.99. This was absent from the Marvel 2011 April Solicits. Marvel released their Throne of Blood: Birth Of A Vampire - Fear Itself Tie-In in similar fashion which was listed as "Vampires #1" in Previews. The "Herc" book could tie into "Fear Itself" as well.
Look for more news to hit later today - or on Wednesday.
