Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read

The consensus from the Bendis Board:

If it's a woman (and it's probably not), it's either Elektra or Echo.

If it's a man, it's either Shang Chi, Iron Fist or Moon Knight.

Or it's somebody random.

Shang-Chi seems like a cool and logical choice.

Bendis has mentioned using Blade as a "helper" character, much like how Dr. Strange was used as an Avengers associate during House of M and in other cases.

Shang-Chi makes sense. So does Iron Fist. So does Moon Knight. Moon Knight has a series coming out in early 2006. David Finch is drawing it.

I'm saying it's Moon Knight.

If I'm not mistaken didn't the person Cap was talking to have long hair? I don't think it's Moon Knight, in Wizard 168 the new author Charlie Huston stated the mini would kick off with Moon Knight down and out of luck. Also, if he's going to jump into his own series he wouldn't need the alter costumed identity. A nice touch about this issue was the genuine respect to continuity (even though Bendis writes most of the books), with Daredevil being unavailable, Wolverine out of town (Genosha in 'Astonishing'), and the Sentry doing his thing (in his series).


The biggest thing bugging me though is that the two core books linked to HoM (Astonishing & New Avengers) are chugging along as if it's not even happening. And if HoM is taking place in the 616 and not some alternate reality as they've stated, am I to assume that the current issues are occurring before HoM happened?



it says so right here in the wcw handbook!

I was wondering the same thing, but I figure you have to chalk it up to lateness. New Avengers was so late, that three issues came out between Late Aug and Sept. just to catch up. Astonishing has been even later, and Whedon has even said his book was to take a 'break' once HoM starts.

So I believe that those stories all take place before HoM.
If you read HoM #1 when the AXM team see Prof. X they say something along the lines of "nice to see you Prof, especially regarding what happened last time we met", referencing the ending of AXM #12 which didn't come out until HoM #3 or 4 was out I think.

The Ronin story I'm not sure about, but I'm assuming it takes place after HoM, as HoM #7 is already a few weeks late, and regardless the Ronin story would have finished after HoM anyway. But that does put it in a tricky position.

DD says that Ronin has a lot of knowledge about the Hand and such. As far as I know neither Blade or Moon Knight have ever had much contact with any of the Far East baddies so I don't think Ronin is one of them. Shang Chi still seems like the most logical choice.

I know who Ronin is!

...it's the guy in the mask!

Very disappointing that nobody on a primarily pro wrestling message board came up with that one.

Really, I have no idea who the character could be. Cap seems to not know who the long-haired individual he's talking to is, so that pretty much eliminates 90% of the Marvel Universe. The Daredevil / Matt Murdock thing would have made sense - taking on a second identity exactly as Steve Rogers did as Nomad - if not for the mysterious, aforementioned long-haired person.

Like I said in another thread, it will wind up being nobody of significance. Probably someone Bendis created or liked as a kid, such as the new White Tiger or...hell, the D-Man indeed!

It's Bucky!! Oh Brubaker wouldn't have that and he's mostly dead. It's Nomad! Oh, he's mostly dead too.

eh.

Dear God, I want to burn this book but for the life of me, I can't because it's being done right. If you haven't noticed the most recent issue of CAPTAIN AMERICA showed us that the 'WINTER SOLDIER' that's killed Red Skull and Jack Malone(Nomad/Bucky II)...
