Earlier this year, Marvel announced an agreement with the publishing giant Manga See Media. This month, we’ll finally see the first release from that deal with the manga dedicated to Goopa’s cat, Captain Marvel, which will come out next week, but Marvel doesn’t stop there.
Following the release of Deadpool’s manga early next year, there will be a Spider-Man / Iron Man team Secret Reverse. The story shows how a wall tracker and an armored avenger travel to Japan to fight the “evil game magnate” and the evil new technology under his ownership. Originally published in 2019 as part of a collaboration between Marvel and Shonen Jump, it was revealed that the manga will arrive in North America next summer at Viz’s Comic-Con 2021 panel in New York City, and it came with a splashy cover with two heroes. The book comes from Kazuki Takahashi, the creator Yu-Gi-Oh! whose anime adaptation is still amazing the same impact. It’s far from it, but it would be amazing if it turned out they were fighting against overdramatic billionaire Seto Kaiba.
A new impetus for the manga comes when Marvel tries to return to the medium it sporadically delves into in North America. Outside of that crossover at one point with Attack on the titan,, their biggest intrusion into manga was Mangaverse from the early to mid 2000s, and he had some wild concepts behind him. The Black Panther could become a falcon thanks to the totem, and Helstrom and Ghost Rider were the sons of Satan. For Spidey and Iron Man in particular, things were … interesting. Spider-Man was the last member of a ninja clan whose uncle Ben killed Venom on Kingpin’s orders. As for Mangaverse Iron Man? He became a floating head in a jar as his sister Tony took the cloak. Yet he still had armor and they all looked like the popular bellows of the time, and they could be combined into an even bigger bellows called the Ultimate Iron Man.
Search Secret Reverse will hit the shelves in the summer of 2022.
