Kimmel to Appear in WEST COAST AVENGERS #4, Joining Letterman as Official Marvel Canon

Not since David Letterman has a late-night talk show host been on the cover of a Marvel comic book, but later in November, another talk show personality will be joining the ranks.

That’s right, the publisher has confirmed that Jimmy Kimmel will make an appearance in the fourth issue of West Coast Avengers, the awesome ongoing series by creators Kelly Thompson and Stefano Caselli, of which you absolutely should be reading.

The series assembles the avengers … on the West Coast! The squad includes both Hawkeye characters, Clint Barton and Kate Bishop, along with a guy named, Fuse, but also Miss America, aka America Chavez, Gwenpool and Kid Omega. The team has to figure out how to save the world because BIG things are heading out West, specifically, a huge giant version of Tigra (and a few of her supersized friends as well).

In West Coast Avengers #4, the ‘Superheroes of the West’ will have a sit with Kimmel on his show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and, judging by the exclusive preview below, it doesn’t look like the visit will go very well for Kate Bishop.

Letterman made his appearance in Avengers #239 back in 1984 when he invited the then-assembled team of Hawkeye, Black Panther, Wonder Man, Vision, Black Widow and Beast, to Late Night with David Letterman. In a weird twist of events, the now-former talk show host saved the day, instead of any of the superheroes on stage or in attendance.

Look for West Coast Avengers #4 to land on shelves on November 21.

What do you think, is this the first of many appearances for the late-night talk show personality? What should his superhero costume look like? What other hosts would you like to see in the pages of Marvel Comics? Let us know in the comments section below.
