Hit-Monkey is another one of Marvel's characters that is being brought to life with a stand-alone show.

A close association with Deadpool, Marvel's Hit-Monkey is based on a real character from the Marvel Comics. The plotline for this standalone animated series follows a vengeful Japanese Snow Monkey who turns into a Hit-Monkey, in order to avenge his tribe's slaughter.

How is this monkey different? He has rage, as well as a weird connection with the ghost of an American assassin, who also died in the Japanese Alps. Together, they are ready to bring down the criminals of Yakuza.
