Media, Spec Sites Identify Appearance of Wrong Character in GoTG
Contains minimal spoilers for GotG, so if you want to go see it without any knowledge, don’t continue reading, but there’s probably something that needs to be set right and Jason is on the case!!!
Here’s the Fox on the Run chorus lyrics to push the “spoiler” lower:
Fox on the run
You scream and everybody comes a running
Take a run and hide yourself away
Foxy on the run
Fox on the run
And hide away
That should be enough, right?
During an interview with Marvel’s Kevin Feige Thursday, lifestyle blogger Sarah Ruhlman broke the news that Miley Cyrus will voice the character “Mainframe” in one of the reported five mid-credits scenes in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 movie. The comic media and speculator sites first identified the character as the one who first appeared in A-Next #1 (1998). This version is an android, patterned after Iron Man’s armor, who was designed by the MC2 universe Tony Stark to preserve his legacy.
However, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed to Rhulman that the character who appears is “only a head” and the “31st Century version of the Vision.” This information more accurately describes a character who actually appears in the Guardians of Galaxy series (1990); his first appearance is in issue #5.
NOW THIS, MovieWeb and others posted the image of the MC2 Mainframe in their articles, which caused a bevy of sales on eBay of A-Next #1. Collectors and speculators should therefore search for Guardians of the Galaxy #5 (first appearance as a voice) and #6 as the first visual appearance and identity reveal:
There are six graded copies of Guardians of the Galaxy #5 on the Census. Presumably, the print run of GOTG was higher than A-Next. There are also six graded copies of A-Next #1, which sold 51,942 copies in August 1998 according to Comichron.
As spec sites begin to correct the error, copies of GotG #5 are starting to move. They are still cheap, but be on the lookout for higher grades and newsstands copies.
While some are steadfast in their determination to never spec on Miley Cyrus, there could be an investment opportunity here.
