The rollout for Marvel Comics’ new team of heroes assembled during “Infinity” continues today, following the reveal of the Superior Spider-Man and team leader Luke Cage. In a new Marvel AR-powered teaser image, the newest members of the “Mighty” team are revealed to be Adam the Blue Marvel and She-Hulk.
Using the Marvel AR mobile app on the image plays a video commentary on the characters and the reason for their inclusion on the team by Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort.
“Adam the Blue Marvel, a character that garnered a lot of attention from the one little limited series he was in,” Brevoort said. “He’s a phenomenally powerful character, a man who his conscience told him he had to stand down at the command of his president, and ever since he has regretted the action. He’s got some ambivalence about what he should be doing, his place in the world, whether everything has passed him by and he’s viewed in different ways by different members of the public. The time has come again for him to step into the world in a big way because the events of infinity are such that he can no longer sit on the sidelines. He has to get involved in the middle of the action.”
Brevoort also delved into the reasoning for She-Hulk’s inclusion on the team, highlighting her history and her ability to be “a good team player.”
“She’s been a lawyer, she’s been a member of the Future Foundation right now, she’s juggled a lot of things,” he said. “In the past, she’s served with the Avengers, she’s been with the Fantastic Four and the Defenders a little bit. She’s a good team player, so when a band of characters is pulled together, she’s an essential piece in keeping the gears moving.”
With only two more “Mighty” team members remaining, it’s expected that Marvel will reveal the full team by the end of the week. Check back with CBR News for more as it develops.
