Reptil is getting a solo series in May from Marvel Comics.
The four-issue mini-series is written by Terry Blas, with art by Enid Balam.
In the wake of Kamala’s Law and his Grandfather’s worsening health, Humberto Lopez, A.K.A. Reptil, has taken a step back from crime-fighting to refocus on his family. Perhaps it’s a sign that he should give up on becoming a hero and finally come to terms with his parents’ mysterious disappearance…or perhaps not! When a mysterious figure ambushes Humberto, what unravels will shake the core of everything Humberto thought he knew about his past and will either change the course of his future—or end it forever.
“I’m so excited to be making my Marvel debut with such a fun and complex young character,” Blas said in a press release from Marvel Comics. “He’s Mexican-American, like me, and I’m delighted to bring a story with more of that representation to Marvel. Also, he can turn into dinosaurs and isn’t that every kid’s dream?”
“This comic book series presents us with a great adventure that I know will personally resonate amongst the Latin American community,” Balám said in the same press release. “Yes, heroes are born from all over the world and Marvel’s teams are doing their part to celebrate their amazing stories. Join us in this adventure!”
Reptil #1 arrives on May 26, 2021.
