This Wednesday, Marvel will launch the latest War of the Realms tie-in, New Agents of Atlas, featuring Marvel’s Chinese superheroes Aero and Sword-Master, and new Filipino character Wave. It’s a project they want to work so much, they’re overshipping it to make sure retailers have enough copies to sell to interested readers. What will readers find inside?
A story taking place at the Pan-Asian School for the Unusually Gifted, it seems, one of the Marvel Universe’s less-explored superbeing academies, first appearing during the Infinity tie-in, The Hunt.
And like modern superbeing schools like the Xavier instituted, some students are learning to use their powers for superheroing while others are just learning to live with their powers and use them in an ethical way. Not everyone can be a child soldier, after all.
Though the tie-in nature of the book may have something to say about that. Will all of the characters survive the experience when the War of the Realms comes calling? School can be a dangerous place in the Marvel Universe.
War of the Realms: New Agents of Atlas #1 hits stores on Wednesday.
