Marvel is collecting the backstory of Parker Robbins, a.k.a. The Hood, in a trade paperback that will release just ahead of the Disney+ series Ironheart, in which the character will play a leading role.

The Hood: The Saga of Parker Robbins will collect The Hood #1-6, Dark Reign: The Hood #1-5, and material from Dark Reign: The Cabal, with work by writers Brian K. Vaughan, Jeff Parker, and Rick Remender and art by Kyle Hotz and Max Fiumara. The cover is by Hotz. The 296-page trade paperback will go on sale on June 7, 2023, with an MSRP of $34.99.

The Hood began his Marvel career as a petty thief who makes a big score, finding a pair of boots and a cloak that give him superpowers. He was introduced in the Marvel MAX series The Hood, by Vaughan and Hotz, which debuted in July 2002. Marvel published a collected edition of the six-issue limited series in 2003 and a hardcover edition in 2007. After several appearances in group titles, The Hood got another solo series, Dark Reign: The Hood, by Parker and Hotz. This series tied into the Dark Reign storyline; a collected edition was published in 2010.  

The character is slated to make his live-action MCU debut in the Disney+ series Ironheart, which is scheduled for Fall 2023 (see “Marvel Movie and TV News”).
