Marvel is looking to restore a little hope and optimism in its comic universe. While the heroes are still battling each other in Civil War II, the future seems brighter thanks to the Champions. Marvel provided a special launch trailer for Champions #2.
Champions has a fun roster. I enjoyed reading Spider-Man (Miles Morales), Ms. Marvel and Nova in New Avengers and I know that dynamic will make sure Champions is lighthearted. Totally Awesome Hulk (Amadeus Cho) and Viv Vision seem like good additions as well. I’m still not the biggest fan of these young X-Men running around in the Marvel U, but at least this team has the younger version of my favorite X-Man.
Champions has a solid creative team too with Mark Waid writing and Humberto Ramos handling the art.
Here’s the Champions #2 synopsis:
Ms. Marvel, Miles Morales, Nova, Viv Vision and the Totally Awesome Hulk are ready to strike out on their own and be heroes again. But are they ready to add one more to their fledgling team? Cyclops wants to make a difference too. Will they accept him into their ranks? Plus – are you ready for…VIV’S. FIRST. KISS. It’s all happening in the pages of CHAMPIONS #2 – on-sale today!
