COMICS: Which Female MARVEL Superhero Is Set To Contract Cancer?

Following their campaign to raise awareness of cancer through a series of variant covers, it is now rumoured that a female superheroine will contract the disease in a storyline which will hit next year. Find out the four potential candidates after the jump.


Bleeding Cool have learned that a prominent Marvel superheroine will contract cancer next year in a storyline which will bring attention to the awful disease. This follows Marvel's campaign to raise awareness after a series of pink variant covers and advertisements with 'Komen For The Cure'. According to the site, Captain Marvel, Red She Hulk, Invisible Woman and Rogue are currently said to be the four main potential candidates. As they point out, Carol Danvers certainly seems to be the most likely suggestion as her predecessor Captain Mar-Vell died of the disease. However, over in Fantastic Four, it has been revealed that Reed Richards is suffering from some sort of cancer which is causing the unstable molecules in his body to break down, so Sue Storm-Richards may also be a possibility. Regardless, this is a great way for Marvel to raise awareness and it will hopefully be handled with great care. What do you guys think of this news?
