Marvel took to The View of all places to make a special announcement this morning, that in the midst of “Secret Wars” The Avengers as we know them will be no more. Who will replace Earth’s Mightiest Heroes? Well, it’ll be the AvengHers, the A-Force. This is a monumental turning point for the publisher that could really push female interest in superheroes to an all time high, and luckily Marvel entrusted a phenomenal creative team to make this all happen: G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel) and Marguerite K. Bennett with artwork by Jorge Molina.
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!
