Next month, Marvel is launching the hero known as Mosaic into his own monthly series, which may make him the first Marvel hero who doesn’t even have a body of his own to take the lead in a book.
As envisioned by writer Geoffrey Thorne and artist Khary Randolph, Mosaic was once Morris Sackett, one of the most rich and famous basketball players in the Marvel Universe. Unfortunately for Morris, he was also an Inhuman, which made him vulnerable to the Terrigen Mists. Now, Morris has the power to literally become anyone by jumping from body to body. Once inside somebody, he controls their movements and memories, which potentially makes him one of the most dangerous men alive. But given the circumstances of his transformation, we’re not sure if he can still even be called “a man.” Or “alive.”
The downside of Morris’ new powers is the destruction of his body during his Terrigenesis experience. He’s practically a ghost now, and he needs the bodies of others to survive. There’s a pretty steep learning curve when it comes to abilities like this, and we’ll soon know if Mosaic has what it takes to move past his personal tragedy and find his new destiny.
Marvel has released the first few unlettered preview pages of Mosaic #1 by Randolph, which you can see in our gallery below alongside the covers by Stuart Immonen, Mike Deodato, John Tyler Christopher, Marco D’Alfonso, and Randolph. There’s also a Champions variant cover by Pasqual Ferry that features the women of the ’70s era Champions alongside their counterparts on the modern team.
Mosaic #1 will be released on Wednesday, October 12.
