Road To Redemption: Preview Star #1 From Thompson, Pini And Andrade

by Olly MacNamee

Marvel’s newest ‘breakout’ character, Star, gets her own mini-series this week from Marvel to test the waters, I suppose, and see if she’s got what it takes and lands with readers. But before she becomes a hero, she needs to redeem herself for her recent past; as a villain who tried to kill Captain Marvel. Not the best of starting point, but seeking refuge in the bottom of a bottle while sitting in the wrong seat comes a close second in this preview is anything to go by. Check out Star #1 preview below and out Wednesday 8th January from creators Kelly Thompson, Javier Pina, Filipe Andrade, Jesus Aburtov and Clayton Clowes.

Ambitious reporter Ripley Ryan rocked New York City when she became the hero STAR, adored by everyone. But in truth she was Dr. Minerva’s attempt at a Kree-human Super-Soldier. Desperate for the strength to control her own destiny, she tried to kill Captain Marvel – and failed. Ripley was left, defeated and powerless, in the Raft…or so she thought. The Reality Stone has found her, and now no prison can hold her. You thought you knew what the Infinity Stones were capable of. Think again.
