Superhero team-up series are, by their very nature, grand affairs. They’re about mighty heroes worthy of (and/or currently) starring in their own series, coming together to face insurmountable odds as something more than they are. West Coast Avengers is also like that, but scaled down to an endlessly charming point.
Over the past few months, some of Marvel’s coolest, most refreshing books like Gwenpool, America, Hawkeye, and Generation X have come to their unfortunate ends. As it turns out, though, the heroes of those series are moving on to something bigger: a new ongoing series.
With as many big-budget action movies as Marvel puts out, it can be easy to forget that the studio has an impressive portfolio of animated projects in the mix. Marvel’s aiming to change that with Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors, a feature-length animated movie starring a new generation of heroes.
She’s beauty, she’s grace. She’s an interdimensional being with a fondness for the American flag and in this week’s issue of Marvel’s America, we finally learn how America Chavez came to identify herself as a Latinx woman.
When you’ve helped lead the Young Avengers, or when you’ve lead a cosmic supergroup like the Ultimates, where do you go next? The answer for America Chavez lies in the last place you’d least expect the portal-punching hero to go: college. Just because America’s hitting the books doesn’t mean she can’t hit a few other…
The Ultimates came together to safeguard the world from the biggest threats in the Marvel cosmos—and then Civil War II happened, some people got hit in the face with a chair, and eventually, the Ultimates disbanded. But the threats they faced never went away, and now they’re back in action... with a few twists.
It’s about damn time. Fans of Marvel’s updated take on the Miss America concept have wanted a series starring America Chavez for years—and it took them so long her original creators went off and created a new version of her at Image Comics. But thankfully, finally, Marvel are getting with the program.
All-America Comix will be starring America Vasquez, a young Latina going on cosmic adventures while rocking clothing styles with patriotic, United States symbols. Yeah, that’s Vasquez, not Chavez. Guess Marvel has officially taken too long to make their America independent.
