So, we were way off on the “forceful” announcement being Star Wars related. The obvious connection was there, force and Star Wars. Instead, (and really should have seen this coming as it aired on the female-centric The View), Marvel announced the all female character book A-Force.
Today on The View, Marvel Comics announced A-Force, a new series written by Ms. Marvel and X-Men writer G. Willow Wilson and Angela: Asgard’s Assassin writer Marguerite Bennett, and drawn by X-Men artist Jorge Molina.
The series will feature A-Force, a new, all-female team that will replace the Avengers during the events of Marvel’s Secret Wars mega-crossover.
The team will consist of She-Hulk, Medusa, Dazzler, Nico Minoru and many of Marvel’s other top female heroes. The series will also debut a new, cosmically powered heroine named Singularity. The team will form in Arcadia, the female paradise region of Battleworld, to battle an old foe from Marvel’s past.
“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?”
