Former FBI agent Angela Del Toro inherited her uncle Hector Ayala’s jade tiger amulet as well as the mantle of the White Tiger. Donning her uncle’s amulet, Angela becomes the White Tiger.
Marvel Comics has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek at the title in stores this week.
During her first foray out as a hero in White Tiger #1, Angela stumbles onto a lead connecting the Yakuza to a secret organization known as the Chaeyi. Pushed by the illusive new Daredevil, and driven by the death of her partner at the hands of the yakuza Sano Orii, Angela decides to investigate the matter further.
With help from her newfound peers in the superhero community, Angela acquires a new White Tiger costume and completes her transformation from former F.B.I. agent to super hero. However, Daredevil and Black Widow aren’t the only ones with their eyes on Angela, members of the Chaeyi have also taken an interest in the new heroine.
Following a lead given to her by an old friend at the F.B.I., White Tiger is confronted by the yakuza Sano Orii and the new King Cobra.
Now beaten and bloodied, the new White Tiger Angela Del Toro’s career may have ended sooner than she thought. It’s a new hero with deadly problems in White Tiger #2.
