The names are very similar, but the Hand's master is usually referred to as "The Beast" instead of just "Beast". The demon's actual name is unknown, the Hand just call it the Beast because it's the most fitting descriptor for it.

I know thereís only so many good names in the world but itís silly to me that Hank has been around since the 60s and someone still called an unfathomable ninja demon master the Beast

When I was checking, I read about Elektra having some weird powers, but I never saw them in action. I always saw Elektra fighting as simply a ninja armed with sai.

Wait, wait, there is another hero with no powers! (at least initially): Conan the Barbarian!

Any martial arts based character who's been around long enough will eventually have at least one story where their abilities become tinged with mysticism.

On another note I've managed to write up a little draft for the villains in the Thor God of War/Asura's Wrath story I've been having fun thinking about.

Here's a folder for anyone interested.

    Thor Godpocalypse 
God of War/Asuraís Wrath-esque Thor story centering on him returning after thousands of years in slumber to a universe ruled by now Godlike foes of the Avengers and himself. The Evil God League includes:

Doctor Doom, the Allfather. The slothful ruler of Earth who has taken the legendary spear Gungnir or the flaming sword Surtur for himself. Profoundly bored of his invincible life as God, he awaits the return of an Avenger to give some excitement to his dull life.

A brainwashed Beta Ray Bill functioning as Doomís personal agent, wielding a mind-probed Venom symbiote devoid of all weakness due to acclimating to Billís now Godly physiology to keep him under control.

An insane Machine God Ultron who has since secluded himself in the core of a metal liquid planet where he lives out his fantasy of a happy family life with android replicas of Hank Pym, Wasp, Scarlet Witch, Vision, and Victor Mancha whom he regularly abuses to horrific degrees.

The Abomination/or Thunderbolt Ross God of Giants. Where after absorbing Hulkís Gamma radiation has since become a Gamma God and kickstarted his own species of Hulk Giants who rule a planet where they regularly cannibalize the populace for their own enjoyment.

The Black Panther, the Panther God. Unknown whether its Killmonger or Klaw, he hijacked the Panther Godís of Wakandaís power turning him into a panther monster with a body made of Vibranium. He now rules the planet Wakanda as a modern Fafnir, obsessively protecting the massive mound of Vibranium from any intruders while the remaining descendants of the Wakandans live in squalor.

Malekith the Accursed, God of the Elves. After slaughtering all the light elves, Malekith and his dark elves technically the standing army of the God group, now roam the universe in their massive fleet to terrorize any mortals they find while avoiding the territories of the other Gods.

Gorr the God Butcher, Lord of Darkness. Basing himself in the center of the universe amidst a veil of shadow, he has spent the last million years attempting to figure out humanities obsession with Gods. Watching over a planet he is infuriated that even millions of years later the people still pray for Thor despite him constantly culling the population, not handling the very idea that even one person still speaks his name in a hopeful tone. He also keeps the remaining descendants of Thor around as a way to vent his frustrations as every several decades once grown one of his sons or daughters steps up to try to defeat Gorr only to end in their violent death, a cycle that has gone endlessly since then.

Interesting Newsarama article about the development of the Vote Loki series. Basically, it grew out of a Tom King pitch (with Tradd Moore in talks for interiors), before he signed an exclusive with DC, and at one point Chip Zdarsky was going to write it.

The next of the Marvel Voices specials, Comunidades, is coming in October. This time focusing on the Latino heroes in Marvel.

The two omissions I'm noticing from the cover is Anya Corazon and Joaquin Torres.

Personally I'd also like to see Miguels O'Hara and Santos.

Yeah, Miguel and Anya being absent from the covers and the description so far doesn't give me much confidence that they'll have a story outside of a group shot.

A glaring omission if you ask me considering they were the first latino and latina to have ongoing series from Marvel - in the case of Anya, the first ongoing series starring a latina in mainstream comics.

Lack of Miguel is weird since heís a major enough character.

Guess they felt putting only one spider character on the cover.

I am glad too see Ava Ayala made the cover and the solicitation mentions a Hector Ayala story.

It's also missing Victor Mancha and Red Locust.

He's been dead for awhile too. Even his appearance in Mark Waid's Hulk run was just his reanimated corpse.

So in Captain Marvel # 30 It seems Amora is now a bitter enemy of Carol's and According to Doctor Strange Captain Marvel commented a sin against the Magical community by depowering/cutting Ove off from being able to use magic

Jul 21st 2021 at 3:50:24 PM

But hasn't Strange depowered magical beings himself?

"They truly were a Aqua Teen Hunger Force"
Jul 21st 2021 at 6:44:56 PM

I'm expecting Carol's future to wind up being a Self Fufilling Propecy in some form. Likely beginning with Ove telling the magical community what happened, getting the bigwigs of the magical community to decide that muggles are beyond saving and try to bring Ove's powers back and ensure the Bad Future happens just to spite Carol specifically and the non-magic humans generally. Bonus points if the Coven Akabba is involved and adds mutant kind to their list of targets.

It looks like my guess was wrong, I thought for sure it would be Mar-vell but it turns out it Genis-vell whose coming back.

With his old look too.

It's been years since we last saw Genis.
