The All-New Marvel NOW! marches on with a slew of new titles coming in February. Perhaps one of the ones we’re looking forward to the most is New Warriors, a staple bit of reading for comics fans active in the early to mid 1990s. Thor: The Dark World co-writer Christopher Yost teams up with Marcus To (Batwing) to finally bring this team back to the Marvel Universe for the first time since the end of their ongoing series in 2009.
The press release, like all good press releases, gives us a bit more information about this new series:
Witness the next generation of the Marvel Universe this February in NEW WARRIORS #1 – an all-new action packed ongoing series from blockbuster writer Christopher Yost and red-hot artist Marcus To! New Warriors mainstays Speedball and Justice are getting the band back together with a new team of heroes the likes of which you’ve never seen before!
“They’re eight people from different corners of the Marvel Universe, coming together to do the right thing, to be heroes,” says writer Christopher Yost, in an interview with Marvel.com. “They’re not kids, they’re not seasoned heroes for the most part, but they’re idealists. Sometime it’s okay to be a hero for the sake of being a hero; to be with a team because they’re your friends, because it’s fun.”
“Sometimes the world just needs saving,” continued Yost.
Evolution has gone off the rails. There are super humans, mutants, Inhumans, clones, aliens, and more everywhere you turn. Humanity no longer exists as the dominant life form on the planet. And not everyone is pleased! The High Evolutionary has raised an army to combat these “superior” beings – through complete extermination!
Now, Speedball, Justice, Nova, Scarlet Spider, Sun Girl, Hummingbird and more must stand together against the rising tide. Don’t miss a fresh start for the heroes of tomorrow this February in the exciting NEW WARRIORS #1!
