Taboo Of The Black Eyed Peas And Benjamin Jackendoff Introduce A New Werewolf By Night To The Marvel Universe


Jay Cochran - January 20, 2020
Taboo of The Black Eyed Peas will be co-writing a new Marvel comic series this April with Benjamin Jackendoff.

The pair previously worked together on a story for MARVEL COMICS 1000 that focused on Red Wolf and will now be teaming up with acclaimed comic artist Scott Eaton on WEREWOLF BY NIGHT. The series will introduce a brand-new Werewolf by Night character to the Marvel Universe in a story set in Arizona. The new Werewolf by Night will be a young man named Jake who will be dealing with the effects of a family curse while trying to protect his people. The events of the story will also be driven by the outcome of March’s OUTLAWED one-shot.

“We're going through a Native lens because of my Native American heritage,” Taboo told Comicbook.com. “I always liked storytelling from a native perspective. Although I was born in the city of Los Angeles, recently I've been really connected to the Indian country or to native communities to be able to be a service and help native youth, inspire them, especially when it comes to health and wellness, and arts and music. So we built our partnership knowing that when we create, we create through a native lens…”

“I think Werewolf by Night is such an interesting character, a cool character. His mythology is really dope, and it was such an exciting opportunity to be able to revamp a new mythology and tie it into Native American storytelling,” Jackendoff added. “That's really what got us excited because they were like, ‘All right, cool. We can take the Werewolf by Night brand and stay true to the genre of it all, the creatures, the monsters, the big stuff, all that, but tie it into Native American storytelling, into a Native American background and palette, but still make it a fun adventure story about a kid.’"

Why? The Silver Sable buck makes for a perfect Lilandra body. She's not a member of the IG & I'm specifically talking bout filling out the core rosters of the IG & SS.

Except it looks nothing like her.

And why? you may ask. Well because I want a proper Queen of Shi'ar before i get a lackey.

Fang is long overdue as a ML figure as are all the core members of the IG. They make the leader but neglect his teammates. You can at least add Speed Demon & Knight hawk to the ranks of the Squadron Supreme with their leader Hyperion & say that 3 members of that group are made. Dr Spectrum is such an easy Blizzard Repaint away from being a ML figure.

Right. I don't remember anyone having a problem with Bucky replacing Cap (don't get me started on how many Captain America's there were before the ridiculous Sam controversy- even the Red Skull bodysnatched Cap for a time), or the blonde Black Widow, the Crimson Dynamo, Union Jack, Red Hulks, need I go on.

There's nothing in this announcement that says Jack Russell terrier is being wiped out in favor of this new guy. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if they end up having both werewolves cross paths.

Keyword - Replacing.

Not having two. Having two It dilutes the importance of the character. Which marvel has been doing, sufficiently.

You guys are making it seem like they are killing off Jack Russel but by the looks of things they aren't. There will just be 2 characters with the same name. This is something Marvel have been doing since the Joe Simmons days. I mean currently we have 4 Ghost Riders, 2 Spider-men, 2 Hulks, 2 Human Torches, 2 Mr. Fantastics, 2 Black Widows, several Captain America at one point, dozen of Captain Britiains, a number of Black panthers andSeveral villains that share the same name.

This isn't like the case like Riri Williams and Foster Thor where they out right replace the character. Just a character that share the same name.
