Freeform has unveiled the team of (somewhat) superheroes who will be joining Squirrel Girl in the new Marvel TV series, The New Warriors. They include a hypochondriac, a lazy immortal, and a YouTuber. The world is... safe?
The New Warriors will be Marvel’s first 30-minute comedic superhero series— which makes sense, following the success of DC’s successful superhero “dramedies” like Supergirl and The Flash. It’s basically the Avengers version of Teen Titans, a group of quirky and relatable teenage heroes, including Nova, Firestar, Darkhawk, and Scarlet Spider. Sadly, none of them will be in Squirrel Girl’s New Warriors group, though founding members Night Thrasher, who’s described as some rich dude with a YouTube channel, and the kinetic ball-thrower Speedball will join this latest iteration of the team.
