    Default Mantis Appreciation

    So, Mantis will be a new addition to the team in the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 movie, so I expect she'll be back in comics in no time.

    I was always interested in the character and have read many of her 70's appearances and more recent stuff from DNA' GOTG run.

    How do you like your Mantis?

    Powers - I prefer the ass kicking martial artist, with empathic abilities, versus the too powerful telepath, telekinetic, plant controller she was depicted as later on.

    Appearance - I like her with an Asian complexion, not green, with groovy antennae!

    Movie Look - how ya like her potential movie look, shown here in GOTG 2 concept art?

    Here's how she appeared in early comic appearances

    I like how she looks in the concept art. And considering Gamora is already green, I'm glad she won't be, and I hope her powers/abilities will be less about meele fighting too(since Gamora is also about that). That would surely make her more unique there.

    Yay for this thread! I love Mantis! She's so awesome! We need more of her in the marvel u. I wonder if maybe Marjorie Liu could be enticed to write a Mantis ongoing for us!

    Red face Scarlet Mantis by sandrock74


    Inspired by the 1970's era Avengers comics: the Scarlet Witch and Mantis find their costumes had been switched and hilarity ensues.

    Guardians have enough green people anyways.

    I expect she'll be more than a martial artist, but not much more. Maybe slightly empathic. Guardians seem almost street level cosmic.

    I would love to see more of her telepathic powers in action. In the guardians movie we have already too much people specialized in close combat...

    Classic Mantis was so good! My favorite version and was quite powerful.

    I wouldn't mind if Mantis was green, but without cosmic powers and telepathy. Empathic powers/sensing evil is OK.

    Mantis is my favorite character of Marvel (not counting mutants)
    I trust completely on Gunn and Pom (the actress)
    Fingers crossed to see her soon in comics regularly (it would be awesome if she appears on Avengers (I would love to see her by mike del mundo) and figures...! I need Mantis figures!
