Marvel Comics has announced a new five-issue mini-series featuring Hellcat, as she heads to Alaska to head up that state’s 50 State Initiative.

Take the jump for a sneak peek directly from the company.


er the 50 State Initiative, Alaska is without a hero and Iron Man has just the heroine in mind, Hellcat! With magnificently, stunning art work from soon-to-be star, David Lafuente Garcia (X-Men Divided We Stand), Hellcat is going to face a lot more trouble than just learning how to deal with Mother Nature! Up and coming star writer, Kathryn Immonen (Marvel Comics Presents), is going to throw Hellcat into a wild world full magic and this cat may not land on all fours! Hellcat will have to face witches, rapid polar bears, killer Eskimos, and crazed demons!


Patsy Walker: Hellcat, Agent of the Initiative #1 arrives July 2, 2008 for $2.99.

    Hell Cat was never that young looking. Is this a new Hellcat. Come on Marvel, cant you just leave a good thing alone. If you want to put someone in Alaska, Canada is right there. Why not Alpha Flight? Yeah, they are from Canada, but why should that matter. Just ignore it. You ignored Hell Cat being a grown woman at least in her 30’s. Here she looks liks some young, Manja, Japanese school girl. I am glad I dont collect Marvel anymore although Captain America may get me on with that title because the writting seems good. I used to like Hell Cat too when she was on the old Defenders.

    I like the art. It’s very pretty and distinctive. A cross of the mentioned Manga style and Ben Oliver (Authority, Ultimate X-Men).

    As for the criticism that she should look in her thirties, well so shouldn’t all the orginal X-Men and they don’t always look it. Just go with it and enjoy your comics.

    I think it might also be something of an homage to the character’s roots from a teeny bopper comic.
