Iron Man was hanging out with the Guardians of the Galaxy and having a good time, but he's by no means a permanent member of the team and has plenty of other matters to attend to. So Stark's leaving the group, but a little while ago, Marvel teased that another character will fill the available roster spot. Who is it that'll stand side-by-side with the sci-fi team in all-new crazy adventures?
Spoiler below but we assume that's why you're reading this.
Well, if you were bummed out over VENOM's cancellation, then you're probably going to be thrilled.
The Guardians are about to welcome two new members, including Captain Marvel and one Mystery Marvel Superstar you’d never expect to see with the Guardians of the Galaxy! And this mysterious character is about to set off a chain reaction that takes our heroes to the farthest reaches of space, on a collision course with one of the deadliest threats in the cosmos!
Venom will join the team in the Free Comic Book Day Special issue. Written by Brian Michael Bendis and illustrated by Nick Bradshaw, the free issue will hit participating comic shops on May 3rd, 2014. Additionally, there will be a back-up story by Dan Slott and Giuseppe Camuncoli which will tease an all-new and "top secret" Spider-Man event for 2014.
It looks like Venom will make it out of "Darkest Hours" in one piece, eh?
