Roz Solomon Makes Her Debut as an Agent of Wakanda in 'Thor #9'

S.H.I.E.L.D. may be gone, but Roz's work isn't done...

Roz Solomon is stepping into a new role -- Agent of Wakanda! In THOR #9, written by Jason Aaron with art by Mike del Mundo, the Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. will become an Agent of Wakanda! While new responsibilities may come with it, so will a new costume and a lot of new tech! And she'll need it as the War of the Realms approaches! Check out this preview of the issue, which is out Wednesday, January 9, as well as some of the preliminary art depicting Roz's new look!

Roz Solomon Agent of Wakanda

Editor Wil Moss shared his take on Roz's new direction: "As an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., Roz Solomon proved to be a valuable ally both to Thor Odinson and to Jane Foster back when she was Thor. With S.H.I.E.L.D. now disbanded, Roz has been as eager as ever to aid her Asgardian allies but she lacks the resources and direction that S.H.I.E.L.D. provided. Enter the Black Panther, with an offer to join his new support team for the Avengers -- the Agents of Wakanda.

"Roz now has a sleek new spy suit, a gun that fires Vibranium bullets, and the coolest commander ever (no offense, Nick Fury!): Okoye of the Dora Milaje.

"THOR artist and all around visual genius Mike del Mundo came up with some amazing designs for Roz’s new role, including a slick Wakandan Helicarrier!"

Moss continued: "Roz Solomon, Agent of Wakanda, hits the ground running in THOR #9, going on a dangerous mission to gather intelligence about the upcoming War of the Realms. Learn more about Roz’s new role, and about her own inner demons, in next month’s THOR #9 by Jason Aaron and Mike del Mundo!"
