Marvel’s turning over a new leaf, so to speak, as it enters the Marvel NOW! era. But in that amid the flurry of new titles, new line-ups and new creators, we’re finding some notable absences — notable to us at least. While some missed heroes like Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Mockingbird have popped up in cameos here and there, there are still a significant number of popular players waiting to be brought onto the field. In this installment of “Six by 6,” we suss out six such characters and zero in on their last whereabouts, and where some of them might show up next.
Even if you’re not into cosplay, you have to admire the time and skill that went into creating this War Machine suit, which comes complete with opening and closing helmet, motorized weaponry and a glowing arc reactor. If you’re curious how the costume was made, Stefano Chiechi walks through the process on his YouTube page.
“Rhodey’s new armor, an upgrade to become Iron Man 2.0, emphasizes stealth, recon, infiltration, and combat readiness when boots hit the ground. The War Machine of tomorrow is lighter, leaner, and more adaptable, with the ability to bulk up and fortify for direct confrontations favoring strength over slyness. And it packs quite a few surprises when things get really hairy,” the book’s editor, Alejandro Arbona, told the site.
