Marvel released a teaser today which revealed that Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic would be the creative team for a “Worthy” Marvel title. Much like yesterday’s teaser hinted at Kieron Gillen and Greg Land working on Invincible/Iron Man, we can only presume that today’s teaser confirms the existence of a new Marvel NOW! Title: Wolverine and the Worthy.
For those who blissfully ignored the wretched event Fear Itself, the Worthy were a group of supervillains (plus the Thing and the Hulk) who were transformed into massive avatars of destruction, complete with Tron lines on their chests. Like many things in Fear Itself, the Worthy were massively teased by Marvel and then dropped faster then a bag of bricks covered with shit on a sunny day. While most presumed that this was the last we’d ever see of the Worthy, it appears that Jason Aaron will be bringing them back in a delightfully chirpy and zany book led by everyone’s favorite mutant: Wolverine.
When approached for comment, Jason Aaron stared at us for a moment and then broke down in tears. “Is it really that obvious?” he said. He then went on to explain the origin of the book. “With the success of Wolverine and the X-Men, Marvel decided that it wanted Wolverine to lead all the teams. They’re really trying to give him the exposure he’s always been due.“
“Between Wolverine and the X-Men and Uncanny Avengers, we covered the main teams,” Aaron continued. “But Wolverine hasn't led every team yet, like the Fantastic Four or the Power Pack or a gang of magically enhanced superpowered villains with hammers."
When pressed for more details about the book, Aaron told us “Wolverine and the Worthy will be doing all the sort of things that you’ve ever wanted a bunch of overpowered villains with hammers do. They’ll fight a mystical flea infestation in Wolverine’s scalp, mine for unobtainium on the planet Venus and fight a jaded forgotten rapper turned preacher who wants to possess the hammers to revive parachute pants. And they’ll all be making all sort of cutesy comments while doing so!“
Of course, as the above comments were totally fictional, it’s incredibly possible that this teaser refers to a new Thor title written by Aaron with art by Ribic. In fact, that’s probably what it is. So look out for Thor/Wolverine and the Worthy coming in December.
