At the New York Comic Con Marvel Comics announced a new funny animal superhero initiative, a four-issue mini-series Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers, which will be written by Chris Eliopoulos (Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius).  When Earth’s “real” superheroes are all off world battling some cosmic menace, it is up to The Inhuman’s pet bulldog Lockjaw to assemble a team of non-human heroes and defend the planet.


The lighthearted new series will debut in May and, in addition to Lockjaw, will feature a number of other creatures that Marvel maniacs will enjoy seeing work together including the newly minted and irresistible Frog Thor, Redwing (the Falcon’s bird), Hairball (aka Niels the cat who was adopted by Speedball), Zabu (Ka-Zar’s sabretooth ally) and Lockheed (the alien dragon who is Kitty Pryde’s companion).
