En janvier 2024, Louise Simonson et June Brigman fêteront le 40ème anniversaire de Power Pack (ou Puissance 4 pour les vieux lecteurs de Lug/Semic) avec une mini-série flashback intitulée Into the Storm.
The Pack is back — and so are their legendary co-creators! In honor of the group’s 40th anniversary, co-creators Louise Simonson and June Brigman return with an all-new Power Pack saga this January—POWER PACK: INTO THE STORM!
This five-issue retro series takes readers back to Simonson and Brigman’s original run, a beloved era when Power Pack were Marvel’s A-List team of kid super heroes! Although they were mere children, their powers made them brave beyond their years and the threats they faced were far from childish! This new series will capture that same spirit as the group faces a cosmic threat tied to one of their fiercest foes. Up against factions of the Snark, the Brood, and more, it’s a mission with enormous stakes that threatens the very stability of the cosmos. Luckily, Power Pack never fights alone! Fondly remembered for their exciting team-ups with Marvel’s most legendary heroes, the series will also feature Power Pack’s most loyal companion, Franklin Richards, as well as their frequent allies, the Uncanny X-Men!
Alex, Julie, Jack and Katie Power are super hero siblings determined to do their part to protect the world despite their young age. The problem is that their parents don’t want them to have powers — and can’t find out that they do! But when their friend Franklin Richards has a premonition of a galactic threat hurtling their way, the Power siblings will have to decide what kind of heroes they want to be — and what they’re willing to give up along the way!
“It’s funny how easy it is to slip back into Power Pack!” Simonson shared. “This story explores the looming question: Should Power Pack tell their parents about their powers? I loved hinting at Franklin’s nascent abilities, one blocked by his parents, but too powerful for even them to contain completely. Loved introducing a couple of Snark princesses–good and tragic– and delving a bit deeper into Snark culture. And I loved writing Alex, Julie, Jack, and Katie one more time. The X-Man Storm, who shares this adventure, also added to the fun. And, of course, June Brigman’s art is evocative and lovely.”
“I always love playing with the kids,” Brigman added. “I hope everyone enjoys reading this great story as much as I loved drawing it!”
Don’t miss this classic adventure starring the Marvel super hero team the whole family can enjoy when POWER PACK: INTO THE STORM #1 hits stands in January!
