Here is an alternative cover for New Avengers issue #39 featuring Deaf Character Echo. I've been talking about this issue for a few months now. In 6 days, our wait will be over.
Eeeekkkk! My big concern is that Echo/Maya Lopez will be a Skrull and end up hearing (a very uncool ending for such a cool character)... but because David Mack is on board this project and I believe that he has a great deal of respect for Echo (considering he created her and all), I don't think that will happen.
