The Savage Land is among the most iconic areas that are specific to the Marvel Universe and over the many years since it’s inception most of the heroes have made a trip there. This October as part of Marvel Legacy, it’s Kid Kaiju’s turn.
As revealed by SyFy Wire, Cullen Bunn & Andrea Broccardo will take Kei Kawade/Kid Kaiju and his team of Monsters right to the land that time forgot starting on Monsters Unleashed #7.
“The Savage Land — and all the prehistoric bells and whistles that come with it — plays a HUGE part in the Legacy story. I felt like we really needed to ground the tale somewhere with a long history (or is that pre-history) in the Marvel Universe,” Bunn said. “Of course, there will be a twist here, something new that readers will not expect, and it ties into both Marvel’s past … and its future. This is a story that helps cement Monsters Unleashed as an important book in the grand scheme of the Marvel Universe. What happens here will have long-term impact in the Marvel Universe as a whole.”
Besides using the iconic location that has ties to Marvel’s past, the series will feature the monster Fin Fang Foom who’s origins date to the era of Atlas Comics before it became Marvel Comics.
“Monsters Unleashed has always been a book that paid homage to the history of Marvel. The first limited series featured a host of classic monsters, for example. This story will focus more on one monster in particular — Fin Fang Foom. He’s arguably the most popular of all the Marvel creatures, so we’re giving him the spotlight. But to hint at what we’re going to be dealing with, I’ll borrow and alter a line of dialogue from one of my favorite giant monster flicks. ‘Two Fooms? What can it mean?'”
