This summer, the Marvel Universe gets a big dose of XX-chromosome power with the A-Force. Green mean machine She-Hulk leads this team of female superheroes in the wake of the Avengers break-up during Marvel's Secret Wars.
"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," according to Marvel.com. "Marvel Comics re-imagines the Marvel Universe in one of the largest shake-ups to the Avengers mythos."
Written by G. Willow Wilson and Marguerite K. Bennett, with artwork from Jorge Molina, the new storyline looks promising for Marvel fans who have been demanding more female-driven storylines from the imprint.
"She-Hulk, Dazzler, Medusa, Nico Minoru and other fan favorites will take charge," Wilson told Marvel.com. "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."
A new character, Singularity, isn't even human. Wilson told USA Today, "She's actually a cosmological event -- a pocket universe that gained self-consciousness during the radical upheaval of 'Secret Wars.'"
Inspired by Q from "Star Trek: The Next Generation," Singularity is "learning about the human race as an outsider," according to Wilson.
Looking at the Cheung cover of "A-Force" #1 I also spot Firestar, Hellcat, Spectrum, Vindicator, Aurora, Elektra, Spider-Gwen, Black Widow, Moondragon, Captain Marvel, Rogue, Storm, Scarlet Witch, Phoenix, Wasp, Snowbird, Pixie and more.
Here's hoping that the "A-Force" comics are so popular we get a few movies spawning from the storyline. Even thoughwill get her own movie soon, Scarlet Witch appears in the new " " movie, and hopefully we see Wasp show up in " ," it would be amazing to see all these super heroines in one gigantic geek girl movie. Hint hint.
