Marvel has decided to take on the request for more female superheroes in a big way with A-Force.
The series, written by G. Willow Wilson and Marguerite Bennett and drawn by Jorge Molina, will star She-Hulk, Dazzler, Medusa and Nico Minoru as a new part of Marvel’s Secret Wars event. From USA Today:
In Arcadia — what Wilson describes as “this feminist paradise” — a familiar threat to Marvel fans arises again and because of it, the new team of A-Force is formed to be the superhero standard bearer.
Marvel gave her and editor Daniel Ketchum the “keys to the castle” and told them to pick their own team — the only caveat was it had to be all female characters, Wilson admits. “They’ve become very committed in the last couple of years to telling new stories, to gender diversity, to getting more voices out there so they said, ‘Here’s the roster. Go nuts.’ “
Marvel also released the first variant cover which is stunning.
