Alex Wilder Assembles A New Pride To Take On ‘Power Man & Iron Fist’ [NYCC 2016]
Luke Cage and Danny Rand have never been as high profile as they are right now; with one successful Netflix show in the can and another on the horizon, the Heroes For Hire are hotter than ever. However, things might get a little too hot in November's Power Man and Iron Fist #10 as David Walker and Sanford Greene bring back former Runaway Alex Wilder in a new story titled "Harlem Burns."
"Harlem Burns" sees a turf war breakout in Harlem in the wake of Civil War II that sees familiar faces such as Cottonmouth, Black Mariah, Black Cat, and even Mr. Fish all vying for control of the neighborhood. However, today at New York Comic Con, Marvel announced one more player in the battle for Harlem, the treacherous Runaway Alex Wilder, who has kept a low profile since returning to life in 2014.
Alex Wilder was ostensibly the lead character of the first volume of Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona's Runaways, but turned traitor in an attempt to provide a safe future in a new world for his girlfriend Nico Minoru and their families. When the ancient gods known as the Gibborim arrived with no soul to claim as offering, they killed Alex for wasting their time.
If you missed Dennis Hopeless and Kev Walker's Avengers Undercover, the teenage survivors of Arcade's Murderworld infiltrated the Masters of Evil, and Nico Minoru was taken under the wing of Daimon Hellstrom, who resurrected Wilder to be her guide in Bagalia. The series ended with Alex as a member of Baron Zemo's new Masters of Evil, but he hasn't been seen since.
