Last week during San Diego Comic Con we told you how Hasbro held some virtual Q&A sessions
in their booth with Marvel Legends brand team member Dwight Stall
since he wasn't able to make it out to San Diego in person. And in one of those sessions, like has become customary with the Marvel Legends team they teased an upcoming figure by showing off an accessory for it. The accessory shown which you can see below is a rather unique blaster which you can see below.
So who could this weapon belong to? Well thanks to tarot
for putting together this list of possible candidates the weapon could belong to.
First we have a Trapster
who is probably the most recognizable villain among the possible candidates. He has appeared in a number of titles over the years including Spider-Man, Captain America, Fantastic Four
. While his weapon of choice is similar looking to the one Dwight
showed, I don't feel its close enough to be for the figure that was being teased here. I think there is a good chance we could see a Trapster
figure incorporated into the line sooner or later, but just not feeling that is was was being teased here.
Next up we have a classic Ghost Rider
villain who goes by the name Orb
, best known for the big eyeball helmet he wears. Not only would a Ghost Rider
villain seem possible since it is Ghost Rider's 50th Anniversary
this year, I also think the gun he uses is the closest match to the one held up by Dwight
The final candidate we have is named Chemistro
. This Heroes For Hire
Villain has had several people assume the identity. The Curtis Carr
version seems to have used a weapon similar to the one Dwight
held up but I still think Orb's
is a closer match and seems more likely to be getting the action figure treatment. I mean who doesn't like a guy with a big eye ball for a head???
