Marvel Teases Quasar’s Return

Marvel Comics is big on cryptic teasers, and today they released a new one hinting at the return of a long-vanished character.


The image, which was sent out to press without commentary, showcases a logo used by a couple of different characters who have gone by the name Quasar. Whether the return will be of the original Quasar, Wendell Vaughn, or his successor Phyla-Vell, remains to be seen.

Vaugn has been dead before and returned, so it is possible that Marvel is going back to basics with the character. Phyla-Vell is supposedly currently deceased, but her remains were never shown on-panel. Given Marvel’s current direction of broadening it’s line with a more gender-diverse set of characters, it stands to reason that Phyla-Vell would be their Quasar of choice, as the comic book world is hardly lacking in lantern-jawed blond white males.
