Writer Jason Aaron points out how Squadron Supreme’s Power Princess has a bloody nod to WWE Superstar Becky Lynch in Marvel’s Heroes Reborn #6.
The latest issue of Marvel’s Heroes Reborn event includes a bloody nod to WWE Superstar Becky Lynch.
Heroes Reborn writer Jason Aaron revealed the homage to Becky Lynch in a blog post featuring interior art for Heroes Reborn #6 by Erica D’Urso and Jason Keith, which compares a bloody Power Princess to Becky Lynch. “Erica has been doing thoroughly lovely work over on The Mighty Valkyries, and here she kicks all kinds of ass, giving us a glimpse of the many rowdy adventures of Power Princess over the years,” Aaron said. “I love Zarda’s bloody smile on that splash page above. We were definitely trying to channel some Becky Lynch energy with that one.”
“I was actually there ringside the night Becky stood tall, grinning as the blood poured from her busted nose, looking about as badass as a human being can. I was busy marking the fuck out, as they say,” he continued. Aaron is referring to the night in November 2018 that the SmackDown roster invaded Raw ahead of that year’s Survivor Series. As Lynch lead the WWE SmackDown women’s division in an attack against the Raw women’s roster, she found herself in a scrum with Nia Jax.
During their fight, Jax landed a stiff punch to Lynch’s face, breaking her nose and leaving her with a concussion. The result was Lynch with a crimson mask spewing from her face as she stood triumphantly in the crowd as Raw went off the air. Unfortunately, this injury also cost Lynch a Champion vs. Champion match against Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series.
Looking at both images, it is easy to see the similarity between Power Princess and Becky Lynch. Even though both have been dealt a massive blow by their opponents — in the case of Power Princess, All-Gog — they are still ready and willing to continue with their fights.
Heroes Reborn #6 is on sale now from Marvel Comics.
