icon - Marvel Comics Secret WarsThis is something we’ve previewed on our Google+ stream before but A-FORCE is such a massive event – an all-new, all-female line-up of Avengers, including She-Hulk, Spider-Woman, Medusa, Captain Marvel and many, many more – that we think it’s worth showcasing on the site in a dedicated post. I mean: look at these variant covers!

And, hey, any opportunity to properly Anglicise a Marvel Comics press release, am I right? Word.

The team they’ve pulled together for this is almost as impressive as the hero collective and we can’t wait to see what Willow Wilson and Bennett come up with in what, for me, is the most intriguing and compelling chapter of the Secret Wars event. The book is out in a month, on the 20th May – let’s do this, ladies…

‘Marvel’s Mightiest Women Assemble! Your New Look at A-FORCE #1 – a New Team of Avengers Assembles During SECRET WARS’

From the Marvel Comics press release: “New York, NY – April 27th, 2015 – An all-new era begins this May as Marvel’s Mightiest Mavens assemble for an explosive new series launching during Secret Wars! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your new look inside the blockbuster A-FORCE #1 – from the creative team of G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel), Marguerite Bennett (Angela: Asgard’s Assassin, James Patterson’s Max Ride: First Flight) and Jorge Molina (X-Men)!

As the Secret Wars begin, the Avengers as you know them are no more – and a new team will lead the way! In a secluded corner of Battleworld lies Arcadia, an island nation fiercely protected by a team of Avengers the likes of which has never been seen before!

So who are the Marvel powerhouses taking [centre] stage? “She-Hulk, Dazzler, Medusa, Nico Minoru and other fan [favourites], will take charge,” says series co-writer G. Willow Wilson. “We’ve purposefully assembled a team composed of different characters from disparate parts of the Marvel U, with very different power sets, identities and ideologies.”

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!

Heed the call, and don’t miss the start of a comic series that will have the world talking when A-FORCE #1 hits comic shops and digital devices this May!”
