Marvel Confirms Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat Comic By Kate Leth And Brittney Williams


Okay, so we did know it was coming. But now we know more.

Marvel has given Yahoo News the PR that states Kate Leth and artist Brittney Williams will create the Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat comic, with Leth telling them.

1. “She’s a superhero martial-arts wiz that can sense mystical energy! She learned how to fight on the moon, so you knowshe’s good.”

2. “Out of the costume, she’s a twenty-something girl looking for work and purpose in New York City.”

3. “Her mom wrote weird romance comics — Patsy Walker! You can totally read them! — about her teen years and her childhood frenemy has reprinted them, as if being a superhero wasn’t enough to contend with!” [This is Leth’s nod to Walker’s comic-book beginnings in the ‘40s.]

Will editor Wil Moss saying

Kate and Brittney are cooking up a series here that’s like a superhero version of Trainwreck or Broad City — a comedic and action-packed story about a woman figuring out her life. Except Abbi and Ilana have never had to deal with crime waves, a supervillain temp agency, or an ex who is literally the son of Satan.
