Marvel Comics Announces PHOENIX SONG: ECHO After Echo Becomes The New Host of The Phoenix Force

Yes, Echo really is the new host of the Phoenix Force, and that means the Cheyenne superhero is getting her own series this October: Phoenix Song: Echo. Find more details on what to expect after the jump!

Spinning directly out of Jason Aaron's "Enter the Phoenix" storyline in the pages of Avengers comes Phoenix Song: Echo #1, a new series from best-selling Hugo Award-winning novelist Rebecca Roanhorse and artist Luca Maresca (Avengers). 

The former first wrote Echo in the pages of Marvel's Voices: Indigenous Voices #1, and now looks set to return to the saga of Maya Lopez as she deals with her biggest transformation yet. Marvel Comics promises that "The exhilarating story will be packed with revelations about both Echo’s ancestry and the Phoenix Force mythos as well as the debut of new heroes and the shocking return of an iconic X-Men villain."

This unexpected development for the one-time Daredevil supporting character has seen her become the host of one of the most powerful entities in the Marvel Universe, and she understandably has burning questions that demand answers. Still learning her new cosmic abilities - and struggling with the Phoenix’s overwhelming personality- Echo strikes out to return to her roots.

However, the reservation has even fewer answers. And where power goes, evil follows. Someone wants Echo to fail - and unleash a power only the greatest heroes in history have been able to control.

"I am excited to return to Echo in her first solo series and follow this thrilling new direction Jason Aaron has taken her," Roanhorse says. "Readers will see some old favorites reimagined and some entirely new characters as Echo comes to terms with the incredible and dangerous powers of the Phoenix."

Check out the main Phoniex Song: Echo #1 cover by Cory Smith, as well as a variant cover by Leinil Francis Yu, below:
