First Look: NEW WARRIORS #1

"Sometimes the world just needs saving."

The New Warriors are back! It may not be exactly the same team we've seen before. There are some interesting new additions to the roster. This will definitely freshen things up. And with Chris Yost and Marcus To on board, this is definitely a title to look out for.

Witness the next generation of the Marvel Universe this February in NEW WARRIORS #1 – an all-new action packed ongoing series from blockbuster writer Christopher Yost and red-hot artist Marcus To! New Warriors mainstays Speedball and Justice are getting the band back together with a new team of heroes the likes of which you’ve never seen before!

“They’re eight people from different corners of the Marvel Universe, coming together to do the right thing, to be heroes,” says writer Christopher Yost, in an interview with Marvel.com. “They’re not kids, they’re not seasoned heroes for the most part, but they’re idealists. Sometime it’s okay to be a hero for the sake of being a hero; to be with a team because they’re your friends, because it’s fun.”

“Sometimes the world just needs saving,” continued Yost.

Evolution has gone off the rails. There are super humans, mutants, Inhumans, clones, aliens, and more everywhere you turn. Humanity no longer exists as the dominant life form on the planet. And not everyone is pleased! The High Evolutionary has raised an army to combat these “superior” beings – through complete extermination!

Now, Speedball, Justice, Nova, Scarlet Spider, Sun Girl, Hummingbird and more must stand together against the rising tide. Don’t miss a fresh start for the heroes of tomorrow this February in the excitingNEW WARRIORS #1!

I will have to try it out.

@snarkybits: I think that's Namorita, Namor's cousin. Which means she is back from the dead.

Posted by Wardishy

Looks great! Will definitely give this a shot.

Also I love animal variant Kaine shaking his tiny spider fist.

@medulaoblaganda: That's the Scarlet Spider. His name is Kaine and was the first Spider-Clone

I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK!

Especially Sun Girl!

Edited by PeppeyHare

I can't wait for this book.

Posted by brinkthemoviemyfavoritemovie

Wow, Justice looks just like The Plutonian from Irredeemable!

@captainmarvel4ever: Aracely's outfit's green, but normally she's a standard human (non-Atlantean) shade (she's Mexican).

Posted by redhood21

KAINE!!!! oh thank god :) its also good to see speedball is gunna be back to his ol' goofy self

Posted by millennium

ill read this if yost turns speedball back into penance

Edited by Fallschirmjager

Only checking it out for Kaine...

Posted by Decept-O

This looks great.

Edited by fACEmelter88

Pretty sure the only reason I'm excited for this is because of Kaine/Scarlet Spider, really hoping Aracely is involved because she and Kaine are hilarious together. Would love to see him be the scary dad if she had a crush on one of the guys or vice versa.

Edited by JonSmith

Going back two years, who would have thought that Kaine, of all characters, would be the star attraction of a new team based book? Well done, Yost.

Posted by Cafeterialoca

>>People in these comments are not excited for Sun Girl

Plebeians.

Posted by BR_Havoc

This book is already shaping up to be one of my favorites really hope Yost delivers.

Posted by richRYDR

Man, if Nova was not in this it would be a must buy.

KAINE FOREVER! :D

This^

@richrydr:

I wish it was Rich too but Kaine and Yost plus the chance to expand on things leftover from Scarlet Spider, is too good to pass up so I suppose I'll cope with the lack of Rich.

Yost is writing it...that's a guaranteed sell for me even if Kaine wasn't in it

@medulaoblaganda: He's been around for quite some time. He had a solo series but it was cancelled even though it was immensly popular on Comic Vine.

Who is the guy with the claws?

Posted by HushoftheWind

Kaine, thats all that needs to be said. I wouldnt mind seeing Kaine take Agent Venom spot in the Thunderbolts since Flash is going to space. He wouldnt even have to change his costume color either lol.
