    Not really, no.

    Glad he's gotten some time in the spotlight, though.

    But permanent? "Permanent" in comics is like Bucky being dead...

    I'm actually shocked that nothing ever became of Jade. But I guess Claremont was in the early stages of developing his Phoenix lore. Still, between the Phoenix Force, Psi-Hawk and Jade the Firebird, Marvel has pretty much cornered the market on cosmic raptors. (Dare we add the Cosmic Egg idea to that list? Ha ha! )

    Hello Kurt,

    Will we see any Astro City comics be reprinted in trademark paperbacks or an omnibus’ in the future?

    I'd view the Kang character more of a top Marvel super heroes villain instead of the top villain of a specific Marvel super hero team.

    Not including the Kang character, then yes even though I find the Count Nefaria character deserving of the number two spot.

    In the future it would be interesting to me to see which Marvel characters would act like Justice someone who DREAMED of being an Avenger for years and Firestar someone who never aspired to that in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    But if we're really going for lesser-known, I'll pick a Wundarr/Namorita show.
    GREAT PICK!

    on the big events of the Marvel Universe!

    The artist Jay Anacleto's gorgeous, photorealistic pencil renderings gave a new look at the Marvel Universe and what it would be like to actually be there.
