Rainbow Rowell and Kris Anka‘s Runaways is getting a new cast member in April, at least for one issue. Runaways #8 reveals that Julie Power will be joining the book. Fans of LGBTQ representation at Marvel should be pleased to learn that the relationship between Power and Karolina Dean, which began all the way back in Avengers Academy, will continue to be explored here.
The solicit also teases a cosmic villain with the claim that “one of the Universe’s most fearsome super villains invades.” Additionally, in Power Pack #63, we learned that Katie Power, through her brother Alex, is one of the few people in the Marvel Universe who knows what happened to Reed Richards and Sue Storm! Does Julie know as well?
