Marvel Comics will pull some of their crustier heroes out of mothballs in a 12 issue mini-series [in early 2008] that revives a group of also-rans that hasn't been seen since the golden age of World War II, when the company was called Timely Comics. Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski and illustrator Chris Weston are the talented twosome behind this new book called simply "The Twelve."
The twelve forgotten heroes featured in the book were kidnapped by Nazis, for nefarious experimentation, during the closing days of the war and then placed in suspended animation following the fall of the Third Reich. Here again, courtesy of Newsarama, is a final sneak peek at the other ecclectic half of "The Twelve."
