Frontlist | Marvel Comics Introduces New South Korean Hero, Taegukgi
Marvel Comics has just revealed a brand new South Korean superhero named Taegukgi. In this week’s upcoming Taskmaster #3, the villain finds himself in South Korea in an effort to clear his name. However, Taskmaster will encounter not only White Fox but will team-up with the new hero to fight against a death cult.
Over the years, Marvel has added a number of Korean heroes to its roster. Perhaps, most famously is the Korean-American web-slinger Silk, who debuted in Amazing Spider-Man #4 (2014). The publisher has also more recently introduced Luna Snow, a Korean pop singer with the powers to control and manipulate ice, Crescent, who controls a spirit bear with an enchanted mask, as well as White Fox, a shapeshifter (she can transform into a nine-tailed fox) who originally debuted in a Korean Avengers webtoon. All four heroes recently appeared in Marvel’s Agent of Atlas series.
