Morris Sackett is a new Marvel superhero getting a heavy push with his own solo book, and that's a rare thing these days. Coming from writer Geoffrey Thorne and artist Khary Randolph, with a cover by Stuart ImmonenMosaic #1 debuts October 12, and Marvel has shared an unlettered preview of the issue.

Sackett's a former pro basketball player who doesn't really have a body anymore, but he can possess anybody else's, Deadman-style. The preview doesn't show him doing much (other than falling out a window), and the previously released Prelude depicted him stealing a flying car from SHIELD for a joyride, so it seems pretty up in the air so far just how heroic he's going to be.

Still, this feels like something all-new from Marvel in a way we rarely get, so it's probably worth checking out.

Here's the official word from Marvel:

You’ve seen his first appearance in the pages of Uncanny Inhumans. You’ve read the FREE 10-page Mosaic Prelude story. Now, prepare for Marvel’s brand-new hero to explode onto the scene this October in the can’t-miss oversized MOSAIC #1! Creators Geoffrey Thorne (Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man) and artist Khary Randolph (Deadpool: The Gauntlet) introduce a brand-new character to the Marvel mythos that will have the whole world talking!

MOSAIC centers on Morris Sackett – professional basketball player and celebrity. Loved by millions, hated by his teammates. Only Morris is secretly something else – something Inhuman. Coming into contact with the transformative Terrigen Mists has given Morris spectacular new abilities. Imbued with the power to jump from person-to-person like a ghost, Morris can control the bodies and memories of those he inhabits. Only these fantastic new abilities come at a grave cost. With his own body destroyed, the one-time superstar athlete must rely on others to survive. But can he?
