The Phoenix Force has remained on Earth, hopping from host to host, in the pages of Avengers, with a different iconic superhero joining the next cosmic entity: Black Panther.
Marvel shared a trailer for Avengers # 41, from Jason Aaron and Javier Garrón, with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes supporting a glove of the Phoenix Force to find a suitable new host. As T’Challa meditates at his home in Wakanda, he is attacked by a Man-Thing attached to the Phoenix and inherits the fire powers of the Phoenix himself in an epic showdown. The preview pages, written by Aaron, illustrated by Garrón, colored by David Curiel and written by Cory Petit of the VC, can be seen below along with the standard cover illustrated by Leinil Francis Yu and colored by Sunny Gho.
