The A-Force is coming! The A-Force is coming!
UPDATE: With press release.
Marvel announced on The View this morning that an all-female Avengers team is coming our way in 2015. The A-Force will assemble She-Hulk, Dazzler, Medusa, Nico Minoru, and a new superhero, Singularity.
A-Force will be co-written by G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel) and Marguerite Bennet (Angela), with art by Jorge Molina.
“We’ve purposefully assembled a team composed of very different characters — from disparate parts of the Marvel U, with very different power sets, identities and ideologies,” Wilson said. “They’ll all have to come together to answer some big questions: What would you sacrifice to succeed? What is being a hero worth?”
Take a look at the cover art from Jim Cheung for an idea of who else might show up in the series.
With the surge in female leads in comics the A-Force seems like a really smart move by Marvel. And with G. Willow Wilson and Marguerite Bennet on board, the series should be THE comic everyone is talking about later this year.
UPDATE: Here is the full press release from Marvel
Marvel Comics is excited to announce the new group of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes taking over an all-new era with Marvel Comics’ A-Force co-written by G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel) and Marguerite K. Bennett (Angela: Asgard’s Assassin, Max Ride: First Flight) with artwork by Jorge Molina (X-Men).
This May, beginning in Marvel’s Secret Wars, the Avengers are no more!
Within the Warzones! of Secret Wars, a brand new team will lead the way. A-Force Assemble! Marvel Comics reimagines the Marvel Universe in one of the largest shake-ups to the Avengers mythos.
So who are the Marvel powerhouses taking center stage? “She-Hulk, Dazzler, Medusa, Nico Minoru and other fan favorites, will take charge,” says series co-writer G. Willow Wilson. “We’ve purposefully assembled a team composed of different characters from disparate parts of the Marvel U, with very different power sets, identities and ideologies.”
And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth’s mightiest heroines found themselves united against a common threat. On that day, A-Force was born—to fight the foes no single Super Hero could withstand! Their glory will never been denied! Heed the call, A-Force Assemble!
