The Coming of a Hero is the first Metroid comic to be featured in the Nintendo Comics System published by Valiant. It talks about Samus's training and follows up to her mission in Metroid. It is notable for many things, the first reference of Samus doing time with the Galactic Federation Police, the first consistent appearance of Samus as a blonde (Metroid did not have a set color palette), what appears to be an early Zero Suit, and the earliest known depiction of SR388.

Samus, Ridley, Kraid and Mother Brain also later appeared in the Captain N: The Game Master series, based on their art here, which is derived from the original concept art.
