Picking up where they left off the week before, Marvel has continued their teasers for the return of the Runaways to comics later this year. The fourth teaser brings back the pre-teen mutant powerhouse that is Molly Hayes, aka Bruiser aka Princess Powerful.
Just like Nico Minoru/Sister Grimm, Karolina Dean/Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, Chase Stein & Old Lace who all appeared in the previous teasers, Molly is one of the original six members of the Runaways group. The only ones currently missing are the deceased Gertrude Yorkes/Arsenic and the formerly deceased traitor but now a villain again Alex Wilder.
With the upcoming Hulu television adaptation of the series featuring all six of the original members of the group it’s very likely that all six of them will feature in the comic in some way. It’s also likely that later joining but just as important members like Karolina’s shapeshifting Skrull partner Xavin and the son of Ultron the robotic Victor Mancha will show up in some capacity as well.
There is still no word on any sort of creative team or timeline for the debut of the new series, other than it will be sometime this year. Kris Anka has been the one drawing all of these teasers, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll be the artist for the series.
Most likely the title will make it’s debut during the big relaunch/renumbering that is set to come with this fall’s Legacy initiative.
