Following on from Marvel Divas is a mini series focussing purely on the hottest New Warrior, Firestar!  
 

Firestar #1

 
FIRESTAR #1
Written by SEAN MCKEEVER
Penciled by EMMA RIOS
Cover by STEPHANIE HANS
Angelica Jones has been many things in her life. Daughter. Friend. Fiancé. Mutant. Hellion. New Warrior. Avenger. And, most recently, cancer survivor. Granted a second chance at life, Angelica has only one question for herself: What do I do with it?
32 PGS./One-Shot/Rated T+ ...$3.99     
 
Love the cover.  And the internal art is by Emma Rios who drew the new Strange mini series.  It's about time we had a decent Firestar story!!

Yay for Firestar getting some spotlight.
 
Didn't the give her cancer because of her powers?
Edit: I missed the part where she was cured/survived cancer >_<

It's not a mini, it's a one-shot.

I thought the end of Marvel Divas was seriously idiotic. I didn't even read it and guessed the ending write. I just don't get why they had to bring the cancer back up after it was taken care of in the 90s. Also what's the deal with her powers giving her cancer yet every other mutant is immune to their mutation.

So I got a little over-excited when I was typing it up, big deal.  No New Mutants #69 scans for you :p 
 
The point is it's Firestar!  It's written by a good character writer, and drawn by a good artist.  This should make up for Marvel Divas.

@xerox-kitty: good job <insert thumbs up here >
 
myself i hope she doesnt go to Utopia. its great that theres so many characters there and all, but too many of them dont seem to get any real character development nor story out of that, and become background. i wouldnt want that for her character personally.
odd for me to say as well because for awhile i contemplated her as an X-Force member.

I think it would be cool to see her in Utopia :D

I think she should stay in New York and maybe join back up with the Avengers. Another reason I don't think her going to Utopia would happen is because of Emma, I mean I guess she could always forgive her. If the XMen can, but I find that a huge character flaw how you can just forgive someone for all the evil they've done with out a second thought.

@Amber: It's just a one-shot (I was wrong when I wrote Mini Series) So hopefuly it wont hurt your bank account too much :)

April, but I don't know the exact date yet.  I'm trying not to get too excited by it, in case it's a let down... Hopefully not :)
 
@Vance Astro: I saw some of that, it looked good.  I still hold out for an Original New Warriors reunion (I doubt NT or Nita will stay dead forever!)

It's bull that she gets a book and Ms. Marvel has to lose her book.

How is it "bull" when Firestar has been in the New Warriors & Avengers but only now she finally gets a one-shot, where as Ms Marvel has had two on-going solo volumes totalling over 70 issues?

You're not 'hiding' your sadness.  You're venting it on a thread that has nothing to do with her an therefore ruining a perfectly good Firestar thread.

I'd actually consider getting this if the Marvel Divas wasn't such an abomination.

@Vance Astro: From Marvel Divas.. nothing. Its just this one shot is a spin off from that, so how much better can it possibly be.

It's only a spin-off because that was the last book Firestar was in.Doesn't mean it's going to be anything like Marvel Divas.

@Vance Astro: You have a point.. but I'll reserve my final judgement until after it comes out.

Marvel have released a page of just pencils.  See what you think.  Seems like she just can't help herself from hero-ing between courses.
