The Marvel Universe that everyone knows has become fractured. Heroes and friends who once stood together now, are in position to battle one another. Because of this the next generation of heroes have become fed up, and they feel it’s time for a change. It’s time for a brighter tomorrow. Enter…the CHAMPIONS! Six determined young heroes out to change the world. Get ready to meet them 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 to bring you a brand new super team for a brand new era. A teen team supreme that refuses to adhere to the outdated ways of old and is ready to change the world on their own terms. It’s time to be heroes again, and Ms. Marvel, Miles Morales, Nova, Viv Vision, Cyclops and theTotally Awesome Hulk are striking out on their own to make a new future. Not Avengers. Not Defenders. They are – Champions!
“To their mind – the reputation of super heroes has taken a very public beating and they’re very intent on proving to the world that super heroes still have value and still have relevance,” says writer Mark Waid in an interview with Marvel.com.
It doesn’t take a Tony Stark or Captain America to make a difference. All it takes is six young heroes and you can change the world. A new day is dawning – and these six are just getting started! Be there for their first outing as Marvel NOW! shifts into high gear in CHAMPIONS #1 – coming to comic shops and digital devices everywhere on October 5th!
Champions #1 will feature a number of different covers from Humberto Ramos, Jay Fosgitt, Alex Ross, Skottie Young, Mark Brooks, John Tyler Christopher, and Rahzzah.
