Marvel Comics have just announced a brand new all-female Avengers series, coming this May.
A-Force, from writers G. Willow Wilson and Marguerite K. Bennett, and featuring artwork from Jorge Molina, will bring the likes of She-Hulk, Dazzler, Medusa and Nico Minoru together to fight evil.
Wilson said “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. They’ll all have to come together to answer some big questions: what would you sacrifice to succeed? What is being a hero worth?”
Bennett added “Our heroines embody the ideals of what we can each strive to be.”
Series editor Daniel Ketch continued, saying “This new series will unite Marvel’s mightiest heroines with the exceptionally creative minds of writers G. Willow Wilson and Marguerite Bennett to craft a story full of epic battles, personal triumphs, and heart-stopping peril … and an all-new character who will push the boundaries of diversity in comic books even further.”
This series will mark the fifteenth female-led comic series currently published by Marvel.
So what do we think of the news? Are you on board for A-Force when it hits later in the year?
