Misty Knight, Shuri and Other Women of Color Will be Apart of All Female Avengers

AFORCE-header

Earlier today Marvel announced A-Force, an all women Avengers team for Secret Wars. Monica Rambeau (Spectrum) and Storm were seen on the cover along with a few other women of color. Being that there aren’t that many Marvel black women superheroes, I was slightly disappointed that Misty Knight and Shuri weren’t on the cover.

Well, it looks like Misty and Shuri will be joining Spectrum and Storm according to writer of A-Force, G. Willow Wilson.

Honorable mentions for Marvel black women superheroes to join A-Force:

Definitely looking forward to this title and seeing women of color on the pages of comics!
