The Press Release:
Previously announced titles, WIDOWMAKERS: RED GUARDIAN AND YELENA BELOVA and TASKMASTER will be at your local comic shop this November! These action-packed series will serve as a perfect introduction to the covert cast of characters who make up Marvel’s world of espionage and will star in Marvel Studios’ upcoming film, Black Widow.
Writer Devin Grayson, one of the creators of Yelena Belova — the Red Room recruit who once nearly killed Natasha Romanoff — returns with a brand–new story drawn by rising star Michele Bandini in WIDOWMAKERS: RED GUARDIAN AND YELENA BELOVA. Yelena has spent years trying to figure out who she is. Once she thought the Black Widow mantle was her destiny, but fate had other plans. Now the past is catching up with her — and with Alexi Shostakov, a.k.a. the Red Guardian! Alexi has worn many titles, including husband to Natasha, but while the Widow played her avenging games, the Red Guardian waited in the shadows. Now a new day is dawning — and this time, no one will stand in his way.
Meanwhile, the world believes Taskmaster murdered Maria Hill! Now the greatest spies in the Marvel Universe are on the hunt and won’t stop until Taskmaster is dead. Follow writer Jed Mackay (Black Cat) and artist Alessandro Vitti (Secret Warriors) in TASKMASTER, a globe–spanning adventure that will send ripples through every corner of Marvel’s espionage community and beyond!
Don’t miss WIDOWMAKERS: RED GUARDIAN AND YELENA BELOVA #1 and TASKMASTER #1 when they hit stands this November!
The Scoop: The Marvel Legends Series of action figures from Hasbro Toys remains one of my favorite lines of collectible figures based on how great they look and how many different characters from the Marvel Universe of comics and film are brought to the consumer. With the world recently enjoying the first Official Trailer for the 2020 film “Black Widow”, it makes perfect sense for the folks at Hasbro to dedicate a line of these popular figures to the film. To my knowledge, most of the characters will appear in the film and collecting a complete set will give you a Build-a-Figure of the mighty Crimson Dynamo. Let’s take a look at some of the Hasbro provided images and I’ll close out with some additional editorial later on.
Yes my fiends its time to get excited once more as the next group of the Hasbro Toys “Marvel Legends Series” action figures are on the shelves of your favorite retailers. This set features a few Avengers and some characters from the Captain America comic series and let’s you build an MCU Giant Man. Alas I couldn’t secure images of the Captain America, Iron Man and Black Panther figures as they were the most popular at this particular shop I was in and flew off the shelves the moment they were placed there. With Black Panther being a part of the new Captain America movie and soon to get his own feature this doesn’t surprise me. If I see them on another visit I will take a snap and add to this narrative. Check out what we do have though.
