Marvel's getting back into the Monkey Business. The above image was sent out on Friday in an email asking "Who Is One Of The Most Exciting New Comic Characters of The Century?" Start your suggesting engines now!
The company promises an explanation tomorrow, but fan rumors already have the gun-toting monkey as either a new character from Marvel's Marvel Apes franchise, an oddly-primate version of a potential comic adaptation of the Hitman videogame or, most surreally and excitingly for us, a new character from Jeph Loeb's upcoming New Ultimates series rebooting Marvel's Avengers franchise one more time. Until then, just appreciate the image for what it is: A monkey, in a suit, with two guns.
