Let’s just say I was incredibly surprised to hear this news when Silverwolf texted me earlier tonight. But it’s official: Venom is joining the Guardians of the Galaxy (along with the previously revealed Captain Marvel). The newest members will premiere on May 3rd, 2014, which is Marvel’s Free Comic Book Day.
Here’s Marvel’s initial description of the story: “The Guardians are about to welcome two new members – including Captain Marvel and one Mystery Marvel Superstar you’d never expect to see with the Guardians of the Galaxy! And this mysterious character is about to set off a chain reaction that takes our heroes to the farthest reaches of space – on a collision course with one of the deadliest threats in the cosmos!”
As a fan of the recently ended Venom book (more so the Rick Remender parts as opposed to the Cullen Bunn ones) and the current Guardians of the Galaxy one, I am interested to see where this team-up will go. While initially very surprised, I believe it has potential.
In the meantime, you can catch Venom in the upcoming Superior Spider-Man event “Darkest Hours” beginning in issue #22.
