Whats Marvel Monkeying Around At?

Marvel.com is in teasing mood. A mysterious news story has appeared on its website, promising that the comics company will reveal its, “Hottest New Character” at some point today. And accompanying this post is a picture of a gunblazing monkey of some sort. We reckon it’s a baboon, though we can’t see its pink arse to be sure. So, is this going to be the primate version of Howard The Duck?
