Marvel Comics will be turning its attention to the younger readers with the release of Marvel Super Hero Adventures in the coming months.
The miniseries, featuring just five issues, will serve to introduce the rich Marvel Universe for preschoolers and children. The theme will be less about violence and diabolical plans to take over the world, and more about friendship and heroism.
Spider-Man will be at the center of each adventure, teaming up with popular characters from both the classic and modern eras. This includes Black Panther, Doctor Strange, the Hulk, Black Widow, Ms. Marvel and more. They will join forces to battle villains like Venom, Taskmaster, Doc Ock, and more.
Marvel Super Hero Adventures has been written by Jim McCann from New Avengers: The Reunion (2009) and illustrated by Dario Brizuela from Avengers: No More Bullying (2015).
“Marvel Super Hero Adventures is a chance to introduce the great heroes of Marvel to a brand new generation in exciting stories with lessons, adventures, and action that readers of all ages have come to expect from the House of Ideas!” McCann said in a statement. “This is the book you can pick up and share with anyone from your kids to your friends!”
The first issue is scheduled to release in April and will see Spider-Man heading to Wakanda. The setting may also help younger fans to better familiarize themselves with the upcoming Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War live action movies from Marvel Studios. To add as a final note, the publisher may possibly choose to continue with a new miniseries for Marvel Super Hero Adventures if the reception is good enough.
