James Tynion IV has revealed a first look at Miracle Molly, a new Batman rogue who will be introduced as part of DC’s Infinite Frontier relaunch.
Batman writer James Tynion IV has revealed readers’ first look at Miracle Molly, a new Gotham City rogue he and artist Jorge Jiménez are gearing up to introduce as part of DC Comics’ Infinite Frontier relaunch.
Tynion shared an upcoming Batman page featuring Miracle Molly in a blog post. While the page in question is unfinished, Molly herself is fully colored. The writer explains that the character will make a partial appearance in March’s Batman #106, the first issue released under the Infinite Frontier banner, before making her first full appearance in issue #108.
“She is a member of a new gang in Gotham that calls itself the Unsanity Collective, and they are going to be huge players in 2020 and 2021. And she’s going to be right at the heart of all of it,” Tynion promises. “I wrote up a whole thing for the internal Gotham team earlier this year, in which I broke down the emotional heart of ‘The Cowardly Lot,’ and the whole story is pinned on two arguments about the nature of fear and memory… One argument comes from Scarecrow, and the other comes from HER.”
“Her name is Miracle Molly,” he continued. “She’s on the cover of Batman #108, which will be her first full appearance, and the issue that I think will make you all fall as madly in love with her as Jorge and I are. Jorge did the above as a color guide. This is just your first glimpse of her… There’s going to be a lot more to come. That Batman #108 cover is going to be coming your way with the next round of solicits, along with some craaazy variant covers featuring her.”
As far as Molly’s clique goes, Tynion describes the Unsanity Collective as a “high tech gang of thieves who use technology to erase and reset their memories, so they can let go of all the fear and trauma holding themselves back. Miracle Molly builds all of their hardware. She’s unlike any of the other characters I’ve written in and around Gotham, and I fucking LOVE her. So I hope you love reading about her, too.”
Written by James Tynion IV and illustrated by Jorge Jiménez with a backup story by Joshua Williamson and backup story art by Gleb Melnikov, Batman #106 goes on sale March 2 from DC Comics.
