Disney and Marvel surprised the world when they announced “Seekers of the Weird” in October 2013 as the first of a series of comics inspired by theme parks, all under the name Disney Kingdoms.

That story is still unraveling with two of five issues released so far. But today Marvel has provided Inside the Magic with an exclusive teaser for the next series in the Disney Kingdoms line to follow the end of “Seekers of the Weird” in May.

The teaser features the word “SPARK!” written in big purple letters with an even bigger number “1” behind it. (Disney theme park fans should be able to guess this new comic’s main character pretty easily, and might just start humming a familiar tune while thinking about it…)

“Disney Kingdoms is the ultimate team-up for fans of Disney and Marvel,” said Editor Bill Rosemann. “Working hand-in-hand with the world-famous Walt Disney Imagineers, Marvel’s best and brightest creators will unleash entire worlds inspired by and built around the attractions and characters that you’ve always known—but will experience for the very first time!”

The new comic is being produced by writer Jim Zub and artist Felipe Andrade.

Update (3/11/14): It’s Figment! And Dreamfinder! The details were unveiled on Geek and Sundry, with a bit of steampunk flair.

Comment below with your guesses as to what comic idea this “spark” has inspired at Marvel.
