The Midnight Suns Rise Again In New Comic Series

The Midnight Suns Rise Again In New Comic Series


Jay Cochran - June 16, 2022
This September, the MIDNIGHT SUNS are back! Marvel’s fiercest mystical defenders will be called upon to battle a dangerous new enemy in a new limited series by writer Ethan Sacks and artist Luigi Zagaria. MIDNIGHT SUNS will embrace the legacy of the original fan-favorite series with a new lineup that reflects today’s Marvel Universe. The team’s new iteration will consist of Blade, Kushala, the Ghost Rider also known as Spirit Rider, Magik, Wolverine, Nico Minoru, and Zoe Laveau, the breakout character from STRANGE ACADEMY!

A dark prophesy and apocalyptic new villains with horrifying powers the likes of which Earth has never faced before ordains a team of Midnight Suns to rise and tear @#$% up! But what does this new threat have to do with the Sorcerer Supreme’s past? And why is Strange Academy student Zoe Laveau number one on the Suns’ list?

"As a fan of the original MIDNIGHT SONS, I am honored and stoked to continue that legacy, and I'm grateful to editor Tom Groneman for giving me the chance to dabble in this mystical corner of the Marvel Universe,” Sacks said. “We're going to conjure up some wild otherworldly action to go along with some themes that have real world resonance. Having fallen in love with the team book concept on STAR WARS: BOUNTY HUNTERS, I'm primed and ready to put this lineup of heroes through hell...so to speak."

"Seeing the first issue pages come in, I can also say artist Luigi Zagaria's art is going to cast a spell over readers,” Sacks said of his collaborator. “It's just stunning work. He's at the top of his game."

Check out the new team on David Nakayama’s cover below and prepare for a new era of Marvel magic when MIDNIGHT SUNS #1 arrives in September.

as a big fan of the original Midnight Sons run, I can dig this, I like this team here, Blade, Magik and Nico are some characters I enjoy, I also dig that new Ghost Rider girl and the Voodoo kid. I stopped buying new comics a while ago, but this might be a story I get into. I do miss my weekly comic store runs, I just had to cut something out, was spending too much, and the Pandemic nixed a bunch of books I was really into.

Just like the game it's leeching off, throw in some Wolverine publicity. Apparently magic doesn't sell anymore

Is this who she supposed to be? It's the only one I could find that exists in the current timeline. The only other one with Spirit Rider as a name is one of the previous generations' GR, which was from Conan's universe.

Yeah, that's the correct one. I think the other one rode like a giant spider or something. I guess this one was Sorcerer Supreme at one time or another. Like I said, cool concept. Just hope they don't screw it up.

I see there's a new Ghost rider. What does she ride?

I'm pretty sure she was last seen riding a spirit horse, but it can be assumed anything she rides would be embedded with Hellfire.

There is a trope called Wolverine Publicity and it is to just put whatever popular character in the story for a quick cash grab and this is not limited to Wolverine. This can go to any character who has a new piece of media coming out at the time and whether or not they are prominent in the story. So long as they show up, even a little, the creators believe they will drive sales.

Which Bendis did ad nauseam on his New Avengers run. What were his stories about? No idea, cant recall because Bendis isnt a good writer but I can tell you he put every Named character Marvel had in the Avengers

I was about to ask, myself. There's so much material on Wolverine it's hard to keep up, but I think it's for his very long history that he has a lot of experience with mystical and arcane beings and also has been trained in the use and defense against many mystical weapons such as the Muramusa Blade which almost killed him.

That's just my interpretation, but if anyone can shed more light I'd be happy to know.

In the end I just think they need a big name character to drive interest. Otherwise it's actually a pretty cool line up. I love Magik and I like the concept of Spirit Rider. I hope it's good, but y'know.........Marvel.
