We’ve already brought you the fantastic news that Squirrel Girl will be coming to a television near you as a featured character on Freeform’s new series Marvel’s New Warriors, and now we’re delighted to reveal the rest of the Marvel’s New Warriors cast of characters! As previously announced, the Marvel series will be a live-action half hour comedy (the first comedy series for Marvel) featuring six heroic young people as they experience the trials and triumphs of growing up with superpowers—er, well, we’re not sure if they’re really superpowers. Let’s just say their powers are unique! Are you curious about these amazing new characters? Great! Let’s meet the New Warriors:
Squirrel Girl, aka Doreen Green
She’s acrobatic and can talk to squirrels. She also has a pet squirrel named Tippy Toe who follows her everywhere. She sounds awesome!
Mister Immortal, aka Craig Hollis
He claims he can’t die. Like, ever. Or, at least that’s what he says … No one knows for sure.
Night Thrasher, aka Dwayne Taylor
He has no superpowers. Interesting … He does, however, have a successful YouTube channel!
Speedball, aka Robbie Baldwin
He can throw kinetic balls of energy. Now this sounds super! The only problem is, when he throws his kinetic balls of energy, they’re completely out control. Yikes.
Microbe, aka Zack Smith
He’s a hypochondriac who can talk to germs. Enough said.
Debrii, aka Deborah Fields
She can move things with her mind! Unfortunately, her telekinetic powers aren’t very strong.
This fun cast of Marvel characters sounds really entertaining, and we can’t wait to watch them in action as they face bad guys … and bad dates! The series will premiere sometime in 2018. We’ll be eagerly awaiting the premiere! Until then, check out this fun art of the New Warriors characters:Characters clockwise from top: Zack Smith (Microbe), Dwayne Taylor (Night Thrasher), Craig Hollis (Mister Immortal), Doreen Green (Squirrel Girl), Deborah Fields (Debrii) and Robbie Baldwin (Speedball).
