Lots of the brand new costume comprises components that scream fashionable Thor, just like the mail on his sleeves and legs. The delicate crown is a good contact as nicely (and look no beard!) Even the luxurious purple cape is right here in full impact.

They look eerily much like the Captain Universe costume and people galaxy print-like stars aren’t precisely shutting down that line of pondering. Could Cates be giving the hero an improve? No affirmation has come but, however it’s a curious growth all the identical.

A fast observe on Captain Universe from the Marvel Wiki: “Captain Universe will not be one person.

When the Uni-Power chooses a associate, it endows that person (or, hardly ever, individuals) with the powers, reminiscences, and costume of Captain Universe. The associate can use the powers of Captain Universe till the peril is surmounted. However, if the associate tries to make use of these powers for private achieve or for evil, the Uni-Power instantly deserts him or her or them.”
