It looks like our beloved Marvel was treated unfairly by ABC’s The View. It was announced yesterday the comic giant would be releasing information about some type of upcoming project on this morning’s episode of the largely laughable women’s talk show. But apparently, Marvel doesn’t trump witty banter, and so the big announcement went to Mashable instead:
All New Comic Series: A-Force
Mashable reports “A-Force” will be co-written by G. Willow Wilson, who re-booted “Ms. Marvel” as Kamala Khan, and Marguerite Bennett, who wrote Marvel’s “Angela” standalone; X-Men artist Jorge Molina will be responsible for the art. “Secret Wars”, billed as one of the biggest shake-ups in Marvel history, starts in May — and finds the old Avengers teams (some of which were all-male, some of which were co-ed) disbanded and no more.
The “A-Force” will consist of She-Hulk, Captain Marvel, Spider-Gwen, and many others — including at least one new superhero, a “cosmically powered” heroine named Singularity.
“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?”
Check for the first issue some time in May.
