Secret Wars Previews: A-Force!
"And there came a day unlike any other, when Earth’s Mightiest Heroines found themselves united against a common threat. Fighting to protect the small sliver of their world that’s left, they stand tall, shoulder-to-shoulder, ready to take on the horde. Ushering in a new day with a rallying cry heard across Battleworld – A-FORCE ASSEMBLE!
Meet the newest Avengers team!
A-Force is a new all female Avengers squad that will battle in the island of Arcadia within Secret War's Battleworld. The series is written by G. Willow Wilson who has become one of the hottest writers at Marvel for her stellar work on the Ms Marvel series. Willow Wilson's presence will make this a hot book, and one to watch. This will be the first book I have read of hers about a team of Super Heroes and I am curious what she does with it.
Members of the squad include:
Captain Marvel - The Carol Danvers version
She Hulk - Green smashing machine
Dazzler - The Former X-Man
Nico Minoru - Japanese Runways magic user
Medusa- Queen of the Inhumans
One other interesting thing is that I have heard that Medusa who is on A-Force will be pitted against her husband Blackbolt during Secret Wars. That is a marital dispute that could leave cities crushed in their wake.
I am also excited to see Nico Minoru on a team. She is one of my favorite members of the Runways and always someone I want to see more of. She uses a special staff that can cast any spell but can only cast it once.
