This week Entertainment Weekly released promotional images from the upcoming Captain Marvel movie. The DC.Marvel.Jpg instagram account did a really good job of breaking down which characters appear in these images.
Right now we have four confirmed members of Captain Marvel’s Star force. The first appearance of Star Force is Avengers #346 and we first spoke about it here. This book has been selling online for $20 to $30.
Appearing in the Star Force team are,
Korath – This character first appeared in the Guardians of the Galaxy film. His first appearance is Quaser #32 from 1992.
Att-Lass – AKA Captain Atlas or Titanium Man. This character first appeared in Quasar #9 published in 1990.
Bron Char – This Kree soldier character first appears in 1998’s Captain America Volume 3 #8.
Minn-Erva – Doctor Minerva. This character was confirmed to appear in the film a few months ago, but her first appearance is Captain Marvel #50 from 1977.
There are other characters in Star Force but there has been no firm confirmation that those characters will appear in the Captain Marvel film.
Another book that has started to pick up steam because of a character being confirmed for Captain Marvel is Hulk #418 and Hulk #419. These books feature the first appearance and the first full appearance of Skrull commander Talos.
This week sees the release of a two Joshua Middleton covers and a marvel chase variant.
Aquaman #39 comes out this week and it has a cover B variant by Joshua Middleton. The cover features Mera – a character that is appearing in the new Aquaman film. This book has sold out at the distributor level, meaning comic book stores can’t order any more copies – and it has been selling for $12 to $20 in presale online. It is currently selling for closer to $12.
Batgirl #25 also features a Joshua Middleton cover B Variant . While This book hasn’t been selling over cover price it been receiving a lot of attention online. The previous two Batgirl Middleton covers sell very well on the secondary market with the cover B variants for Batgirl #23 selling for $40 to $50 and Batgirl #24 selling for around $13. This is a book to be looking for this week.
Another book that came out this week in Infinity War #2. Infinity War #2 features a secret unannounced variant cover. It is believed to have been sent out by marvel in a 1 in 10 ratio. The last time Marvel did this was for Avengers #682 – which features two different variations of Hawkeye on the cover. The chase version of that book still sells for $8 to $9. I would expect that would be the same situation with this new variant.
