Marvel Gives Titles To The Outlawed ‘New Warriors’ And ‘Power Pack’

A new Champions title is not the only title spinning out of the Outlawed one-shot. Marvel also is reviving two old school titles featuring youths. The first title features the OG troublemaking group, who incited the whole (very familiar for the Outlawed title) Civil War incident, the New Warriors.

New Warriors will reunite most of the original team (Night Thrasher, Namorita, Firestar, Speedball, Rage, and Silhouette), but Justice may not be all-in with the newest effort and Nova will be offworld. New Warriors will be written by Daniel Kibblesmith, with art by Luciano Vecchio. According to Kibblesmith:

“… the New Warriors have chosen a side, and they’re recruiting unaffiliated new New Warriors to come in from the cold and get proper hero training. So we get to see all our old favorite buddies, but also a new team of heroes that we want to feel as modern and immediate as the New Warriors felt in 1990…”

The last New Warriors series was the twelve issue run in 2014.

The other youthful team title spinning out of Outlawed is Power Pack. This title will feature the original team (Katie, Julie, Jack, and Alex Power) in a five-issue miniseries. The miniseries will be brought to you by writer Ryan North and artist Nico Leon.

Here is the solicitation for the first issue of Power Pack:

POWER PACK #1 (of 5)
RYAN NORTH (W) • NICO LEON (A) • COVER BY RYAN STEGMAN
VARIANT COVER BY NICO LEON
VARIANT COVER BY EDUARD PETROVICH

Power Pack is back! Katie, Julie, Jack and Alex Power have been super-heroing since they were learning to tie their own shoes. It’s been ages since they fought side by side as a family, but a special occasion — and an old grudge — is about to put the gang back together. There’s just one teeny tiny hiccup: a brand–new law restricting underage super heroes! But surely, if the fate of all New York City is at stake, the powers that be will make an exception? Keep your fingers crossed as the Power siblings fight for their right to save the world!

The most recent Power Pack title was a one-shot from August 2019 and featured the kids as kids. Modern appearances of the Power Pack crew were in the most recent incarnation of Runaways, and the most recent incarnation of Future Foundation.

These Outlawed spin-offs will show up in April.
