Marvel’s letting the ladies handle the galaxy’s most powerful supervillains in the comics now. While Captain America, Iron Man, Thor & others hold down the mantle in the Marvel cinematic universe, the A-Force is keeping the planet in order in the comics. And they’ve got a Hulk to boot.

She-Hulk, Dazzler, Medusa and Nico Minoru are to become Earth’s mightiest heroes in an arc penned by G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel, X-Men) and Marguerite Bennett (Angela: Asgard’s Assassin) and drawn by Jorge Molina (X-Men). The storyline of A-Force is set to take place during Marvel’s massive Secret Wars campaign.

Per USA Today:

The spring crossover finds the entire Marvel Universe disbanded and the Avengers no more. What’s left in Secret Wars is a patchwork landscape of all the different corners of the Marvel U known as Battleworld.

In Arcadia — what Wilson describes as “this feminist paradise” — a familiar threat to Marvel fans arises again and because of it, the new team of A-Force is formed to be the superhero standard bearer.

“It feels almost like a great honor to be given the reins on something that has become so central to the narrative at Marvel and a big cinematic property as well,” Wilson says.
