‘Power Pack’ Is Back In August

The team mostly known for their adventures during their youth, Power Pack, or members from that group will show up in a couple of Marvel comic titles in August. The first title is a one-shot by the writer who brought you the first Power Pack series back in 1984, writer Louise Simonson plus art team Gurihiru who drew the team in mini-series such as Spider-Man and Power Pack, Wolverine and Power Pack, and Thor and the Warriors Four. The one-shot will be titled Power Pack: Grow Up! and looks to tell a tale from Power Pack’s young days. Here is what Marvel had to say:

Acclaimed creators Louise Simonson and June Brigman are bringing an all-new special story to the Marvel Universe this August, as POWER PACK’s young super heroes set the stage for an adventurous, thrilling ride!

Power Pack jumps into action when the Brood crash a concert, but it’s a race against time as they battle the invasion against their own anxieties, as well as each other, in hopes of saving the world. Join Alex, Julie, Katie, and Jack Power and special guests Wolverine and Kitty Pryde for an incredible new adventure! Plus, don’t miss fan-favorite artist Gurihiru teaming up with Louise Simonson for the first time in a special short story!

“I remember the joy I felt reading Power Pack #1 when it was first published, and the sadness of hitting the last page of the final issue of their original run, so it’s a thrill to be able to reunite Louise and June to tell untold tales with Alex, Julie Jack and Katie from that time period,” shared Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski. “And to also have Gurihiru contributing a story bridges these two acclaimed generations of Power family fun, making this a perfect project to commemorate Marvel’s 80th Anniversary!”

While not the entire team, a couple of members of the Pack will be appearing in a new Future Foundation series once again spinning out of the Fantastic Four. This title is the one writer Jeremy Whitley was teasing yesterday. Wil Robson will be on art duties for Future Foundation. Here is what Marvel has to say about this title:

When the Richards family is called back to Earth to be the Fantastic Four again, they left behind the Future Foundation—a think tank of the most brilliant young minds in the universe—with one mission: find the pieces of and rebuild their friend Molecule Man. But that’s proved harder than imagined as this crew of young geniuses, Atlanteans, Mutants, Moloids, and androids have run into every problem in the Multiverse.

Now, with the leadership of Alex and Julie Power and a little extra firepower from guest professor Yondu Udonta, the team will undergo their most dangerous mission yet—a prison break!
