    Es Mortaja o El Regreso del Doc Strange?

      Not sure about Shroud, but Dr. Strange would make sense. He is trying to redeem himself, and he formed the Secret Defenders back in the day.

      I’d be cool with it being Hood, though that is quite the demotion…

    The hands look really small, are you sure it isn’t a woman?

    I say it is more the likely Doc Strange or maybe the hood.

    Taskmaster would be interesting. But the silhouette is not clear enough. Could be scarlet witch for what we know.(I hope not a monkey, or anything ape-related)

    Going by the pose, The Hobgoblin would actually be a good guess. Just imagine a glider under his feet. What if Harry becomes the new Hobgoblin to redeem the family name?

      Hmm your theory had some points.

    I’m going with Moon Knight due to the cape and what looks like a hood. But it also could be Nighthawk (Kyle Richmond). Could it be that the Secret Avengers are a redux of the Defenders?

    My first guess was Cloak, but I’m really hoping it’s Moon Knight after someone else mentioned him. It’s about time to get him back on the major playing field.

      Looks like Cloak to me, too.

    Looks like Louisiana to me. Wouldn’t that be a total swerve.

    If not my money is on Strange.

    My guess is The Hood. I thought about Cloak and other but none of them need redemption.

      Cloak was just stooged into working for Norm-O as a “Dark X-Man”. Given what (admittedly little) I know about the man, he’s probably been flagellating himself ever since. He _always_ thinks he needs redemption, doesn’t he?

    Didn’t they just put Cloak in the Dark X-Men? I don’t think they’d switch him over but it’s possible. I did think Moon Knight and that would be cool. It’s probably neither, though….

      Well since the Dark X-men are a part of Osborn Inc I imagine they will be searching for new employment opportunities very soon.

      So are all the Secret Avenges going to be wearing big cloaks and coats?

    Looks like Moon Knight. I may look into this only because of Brubaker. Sounds like a trade waiting to happen.

    Looks kinda like Exodus.

    I was thinking of Cloak, Exodus, or Sentry.

    … but how about Morbius?

    That was my first thought Damascus. It would explain the bad posture.

      Actually, at first I was like, “Dang, that’s easy, I got it!” And realized the character I was thinking about was from DC. I do that all the time for slightly lesser known characters. I thought the stance and ragged cape(?) looked very reminiscent of The Demon Etrigan.
