ALL NEW ALL DIFFERENT AVENGERS
The Avengers that you once knew and loved are dead – long live the Avengers! Earth’s Mightiest Heroes – Captain America, Thor, Vision, and Iron Man – are living separate lives, not tied to any team. But when a threat from beyond the stars targets our world, fate draws those great legendary names back together once more, only this time alongside a very young and inexperienced team of Nova, Ms. Marvel, and Miles Morales a.k.a. Spider-Man!
Sam Wilson the new Captain America (A.K.A. Falcon) leads this very diversely mixed team of heroes. With returning Avenger legends Vision and Iron Man, this core group will have to teach Avengers-style teamwork to the newer young teammates. While Thor may be around to add power to the team, it is Jane Foster who is under the helmet and wields the mighty hammer. Teenagers Ultimate Spider-Man, Ms Marvel and Nova are all going to need to grow up very fast if they want to stay within the Avengers ranks.
Ultimate Spider-Man; is the Miles Morales who first appeared in the Ultimate Marvel universe, following the death of the Ultimate version of Peter Parker. Miles, is a teenager of Black Hispanic descent but was bit by a different type of spider than Peter Parker’s, thus giving Morales slightly varied spider-powers. After Marvel ended the Ultimate imprint with Secret Wars, Miles was made a character in the main Marvel Universe, beginning with these stories in the All-New, All-Different Marvel.
Ms. Marvel; Kamala Khan, is the fourth character to take the name as Ms. Marvel. Khan first appeared in Captain Marvel #17 (pre-Secret Wars) and is a 16-year-old Pakistani American from New Jersey, who idolizes Carol Danvers. Khan was given her own Ms. Marvel series, which has been received with high praise for being the’ first Muslim character to headline her own comic book. Her powers come from finding out she is an Inhuman.
Nova; Sam Alexander is a fifteen-year-old living on Earth, till one day he learns of his Fathers true origins as a Nova Corps soldier. After being trained in the way of the Nova Corpse, now it’s Sam’s time to show he also has the same blood as his once hero Father.
If the Avengers are the flagship team of America and Falcon is the symbolic leader, I keep wondering why there is no mutants among the teams ranks? As diverse as the team looks, those are some very ominous omissions to have in the all-new Marvel.
