There’s an all-new superhero team coming to Marvel Comics! This new lethal ragtag group of individuals are said to be the unit that will do a job too dirty for normal supertypes to handle.
The new group will be called Strikeforce and features Blade, Angela, Spider-Woman, Hellstrom, Spectrum, Wiccan, and Winter Soldier, and you can check out the brand new cover to Strikeforce #1 below. The new series will be written by Tini Howard with art by German Peralta, and that slick cover was created by Andrea Sorrentino, which features a few of the members front and center. You’ll also notice that while most of the team is in their standard gear, Jessica Drew is sporting a different design than what we’re used to (via Marvel).
That’s because she’s sporting her original Spider-Woman costume once more, at least within the pages of Strikeforce. In recent years he’s adopted a more modern take on her costume, but it seems something gets her to switch back to the old costume, which has always been a fan favorite.
They are basically the Avengers version of X-Force. Blade, who has recently teamed up with the Avengers, will now be front and center in Strikeforce. You can check out the official description below.
“Doing the dirty jobs the Avengers and other Marvel heroes can’t do! Angela, Blade, Spider-Woman, Wiccan, the Winter Soldier, Monica Rambeau, and Daimon Hellstrom join forces for a monsterrific bloodbath from the dark mind of rising star Tini Howard. Prepare for a tale from the underside of the Marvel Universe in STRIKEFORCE!”
