While MCU followers had been delightfully shocked with Echo, that doesn’t imply the collection was with out its issues. Many followers level to how completely different Maya Lopez’s powers are within the collection from the unique Marvel comics, focusing extra on her ancestry than mimicry. Yet it appears these powers nearly grew to become a actuality, with idea artwork for the collection revealing one in every of her ancestors would give her the power to see into the longer term.
“I had A LOT of fun on this keyframe for [Echo],” Concept Illustrator Andrew Kim wrote on his Instagram. “At the time of doing this concept, the idea was that she has the power of foreseeing the opponents’ movements and reacting accordingly to avoid their hits/tackles. Hence she’d have choices to choose from to make her next moves. In the actual show, I didn’t see any of that so I guess that part was cut but still, I had a blast painting this one.”
It’s unclear precisely why Marvel reduce the comic-accurate powers proven on this idea artwork. However, given Echo was one of many MCU exhibits with the rockiest productions behind-the-scenes, it’s probably the powers had been trimmed down for simplicity. Here’s to hoping Maya Lopez unlocks these powers in a future look!
