The Marvel Universe is fractured. Heroes, who once stood together, now position themselves in opposition to one another. Idols of the Marvel Universe who once endured in the light are now shrouded within shades of gray, and the heroes of tomorrow are fed up! It’s time for a change. It’s time for a brighter tomorrow. Enter...the CHAMPIONS! They’re coming to you in Marvel’s CHAMPIONS #1 – a brand-new ongoing series launching this October as the flagship title of Marvel NOW!
Eisner Award winning writer Mark Waid and Eisner Award nominated artist Humberto Ramos join forces bring you a brand new super team for a new era. A teen team supreme that refuses to adhere to the antiquated ways of old. It’s time to be heroes again, and Ms. Marvel, Miles Morales, Nova, Viv Vision and the Totally Awesome Hulk are striking out on their own to make a new future. Not Avengers. Not Defenders. Champions!
“To their mind – the reputation of super heroes has taken a very public beating and they’re very intent in proving to the world that super heroes still have value and still have relevance,” says series writer Mark Waid, in an interview with Marvel.com. It doesn’t take a Tony Stark or a Captain America to make a difference. All it takes is six young heroes and you can change the world – and they’re only the beginning! It all starts this October as Waid & Ramos bring you Marvel’s CHAMPIONS #1 – coming to comic shops and digital devices everywhere!
