Marvel NOW! Hear This: Champions
These aren’t the Silver Age Champions you are familiar with. From the ashes of Civil War II arise the All-New, All-Different Champions. Sporting a classic name they look to the future like no super team ever before. Concerned with healing the deep rifts in the Marvel Universe and repairing the reputation of the super hero concept.
CHAMPIONS #1 boasts the reunited team of writer Mark Waid and artist Humberto Ramos. The Champions are an unprecedented group of the hottest Marvel teen heroes: Ms. Marvel, Spider-Man, Nova, the Hulk, Cyclops, and Viv Vision. The book will address topical issues that the creators hope will spur discussion and the place of youth activism in modern society.
When asked what will be the impetus after Civil War II that will drive your characters to form the new Champions? Mark Waid replied, without giving too much away all I can tell you is that to their mind the reputation of super heroes has taken a very public beating. They’re very intent in proving to the world that super heroes still have value and still have relevance.
