CHAMPIONS #1-6 (Ewing, More / di Meo, Quinn, Vecchio)

Suite aux événements du one-shot Outlawed, le gouvernement américain vote une loi contre les jeunes super-héros. C’est dans ce contexte que débutera la nouvelle série des Champions scénarisée par Eve L. Ewing (Ironheart) et dessinée par Simone Di Meo (Power Rangers/Ninja Turtles).

La publication débutera en avril.

Announced by Screen Rant in an exclusive interview with writer and scholar Dr. Eve L. Ewing, CHAMPIONS will be a new ongoing series spinning out of OUTLAWED. With art by Simone Di Meo, this series will be chock full of surprises as the Champions prove that despite the new law, the world needs them more than ever!

En gros c’est Civil War again, mais pour les ados cette fois ?

Oui, c’est ce qui a été dit par Benny la Vague dès le lancement d’Outlawed

Que ça fait du bien de savourer une idée nouvelle.

Héhé.

Mais Bennie, il est fou, il lit toutes les infos, il se tient au courant de tout, il ne fatigue jamais. Moi, je ne suis qu’un simple mortel.

Ms. Marvel, Spider-Man, Nova and Ironheart race to stay one step ahead of C.R.A.D.L.E., but someone keeps leaking their location, and they’re running out of places to hide.

Nouvelle équipe créative à partir du #6 : le scénariste Danny Lore (Ironheart 2020) et le dessinateur Luciano Vecchio (Riri Williams : Ironheart).

« The Champions tried fighting fair. Now it’s time to fight dirty. A sinister corporation is cheating the system to try to keep Kamala’s Law on the books, so the Champions infiltrate the company to take it down from the inside. But the company’s wildly popular self-help app is already turning public perception against teen super heroes. Can the Champions wage war on a trend? And how dirty will their hands get before it’s over? »

« I think it’s very easy today for young people to feel either helpless or overwhelmed with the weight of the world and its ills on their shoulders. With rhetoric constantly showing up about how the youth will save the world, but not necessarily with the support system to assist, it’s important that Champions exists as a story in which they DO have the power, » Lore said. « Where even if the teens only have each other, they can change the world, the rest of us grown folk be damned. »

« Personally this is the perfect follow up to my run as artist on Ironheart, which has been super significant to me, and I’m so excited to reconnect with Riri and also get to draw Ms. Marvel, Miles and the rest of the kids and get my visual brand on them individually and as a cohesive team, » Vecchio said. « Young legacy heroes are my favorite category in the superhero genre because they redefine and update the archetypes we love in a constantly evolving world that challenges the kind of stories we tell. Champions in particular has been such a special read in this sense from its start and I’m honored to be part of it. »
