The Press Release:
The Champions are back and ready to take on the world in a brand-new series by acclaimed and award-winning writer Eve L. Ewing (Ironheart) and artist Simone Di Meo (Immortal Hulk: The Best Defense). A new law has been passed, forbidding anyone under 21 from being a vigilante, but luckily for the Marvel Universe, the Champions won’t be going down without a fight. United, the Champions will rise up against any obstacles that dare stand in their way, including the dangerous new government taskforce known as C.R.A.D.L.E.
Kicking off next month, this groundbreaking new series will propel some of Marvel’s most popular heroes, including Ms. Marvel, Miles Morales, and Nova, into bold new chapters of their super hero sagas. Get a peek at things to come in this explosive new trailer, featuring never-before-seen artwork from the debut issue!
“I think individually and collectively the Champions are some of the coolest, most interesting characters in the Marvel Universe,” Ewing told Screen Rant earlier this year. “And I want to tell a story that’s worthy of them. For me the big challenge is working with an ensemble cast, trying to make sure that we tell a cohesive story while individual characters also have moments to shine.”
The Champions are ready to change the world. Are you? Don’t miss a beat of their new adventures when CHAMPIONS #1 hits shelves next month!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Back in July, I ran the announcement about the series and you can see that post by clicking HERE since its a little different in terms of information and also includes the visual of the Ron Lim variant cover of the first issue. Now while I am very interested in this team, the pandemic has found me slowing down the weekly pull list just a tad bit so I will be perusing this one on the racks first to make sure I want to begin following it. What do you readers think? Did the trailer for the premiere issue sell you on the series straight away? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time.
