Yesterday we had the news that H.A.R.D.Corps was returning. Today, we learn that Dr. Mirage is returning in Shadowman #5!
This version of Dr. Mirage looks totally different than the original. This time around, she is some sort of paranormal investigator.
Looks like we’ll be learning more about this new Dr. Mirage tomorrow, when Shadowman #5 hits the shelves tomorrow.
DR. MIRAGE Lives Again in SHADOWMAN #5
The Associated Press today announcedthat Dr. Mirage, Valiant’s preeminent psychic investigator and supernatural hero, will debut this Wednesday in Shadowman #5 in a new incarnation created by writer Justin Jordan and co-writer/artist Patrick Zircher.
In this new iteration, Dr. Mirage is the stage name of Shan Fong, a one-time television investigator of paranormal phenomena whose unique abilities make her an invaluable asset to police departments around the world. During the upcoming “Darque Reckoning” storyline – beginning on March 6th in Shadowman #5 – Fong steps into the world of Jack Boniface and the Shadowman after discovering that no matter where she goes, the dead only have one thing to say: “Master Darque is coming.”
“Since the Summer of Valiant, we’ve been slowly building towards several key events. You can see the first of these events this April in Harbinger Wars, where Bloodshot and Harbinger collide,” Valiant CEO and Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani told the AP. “The return of Dr. Mirage is part of that plan — part of setting the stage. Dr. Mirage is a key piece in the future of the Valiant Universe and the timing of the return, as well as the manner, is no accident.”
