The New Warriors are dead, so it makes perfect sense to kick off a new New Warriors series, as a new team rises from the ashes. Marvel was kind enough to send Major Spoilers a sneak peek at the first issue.

In the wake of Civil War and superhero registration in full effect thanks to the Initiative, one expects a new era of order and stability…so why are gift-wrapped super-villains turning up at City Hall while pro-registration posters are being defaced? The clues are two letters “NW,” that point to the superhero team known as the New Warriors, who seemingly destroyed in the wake of their role in Civil War. However, while this may be a new collection of, well, New Warriors, the heroes behind these masks are familiar faces—but if you want to know who, you’ll have to read the series!

Just who are the New Warriors? In the past, the team represented a new generation of superheroes, fighting against the evil that polluted America, and exploring the very concept of justice in the modern world. While the true identities of this team’s new lineup are not known yet, fans should not be surprised to learn that while their superhero names may be new, the faces underneath are familiar. And is that a former New Warrior in the line-up?


New Warriors #1 ships in June for $2.99.

    Amen! The deaths of the New Warriors has to be the lamest, cruelest super-team death ever. Scratch that, Alpha Flight buying it in one panel in New Avengers was even more messed up. But the New Warriors were my new Avengers for the 90s. They rocked. Here’s open they can get a little magic back….
