In 2003 Marvel Comics created an experimental imprint called Tsunami. I think the original plan was to establish a line of titles to appeal to manga fans, but it ended up being quite a diverse collection of properties. My favorite Tsunami series were Mystique, New Mutants, Namor, Emma Frost, and of course the fan-favorite Runaways. Runaways was written and created by the amazing Brian K. Vaughn (Saga, Y: The Last Man, Pride of Baghdad, Mystique, etc.) The series focuses on a group of six exceptional kids who discover their parents are all super-villains and... well.. run away. It's a fantastic comic which was just recently announced as an upcoming Hulu Original Series. Of the main characters in the book, Nico Minoru (aka Sister Grimm) has had the most staying power. She has appeared in several Avengers titles, the Mystic Arcana storyline, and most recently A-Force. She is an unexpected but welcome addition to the Doctor Strange Legends assortment. Let's check out Nico below!
Nico comes with the Staff of One and a "powered-up" arm.
Nico's parents are dark wizards and she inherited their abilities. Whenever she bleeds, the Staff of One emerges from her chest and enables her to cast spells. The catch is she can't use the same spell twice.
One thing I regretted about 2015's Book of Vishanti SDCC set was how I had to sell Dormammu. I didn't need the character (and still don't), but I loved loved loved the pink translucent plastics used on that figure. I'm super stoked that I now have a figure that utilizes these power effects.
Nico comes with the pelvis and waistcoat of this new Dormammu build-a-figure.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here is Nico with her Mystic Rivals slot-mate, Enchantress.
And here she is with another mystical youth, Magik.
