This summer Marvel Comics will release a series centering on a team of Asian superheroes called the Agents of Atlas, reports CBR.com.
While the group originally debuted in an issue called War of the Realms, they will receive their own standalone series later this summer.
Comic book writer Greg Pak will be in charge of the series’ limited run. Pak is known for co-creating Amadeus Cho, a Korean American genius teen, that later went by the name of “Brawn” after absorbing the Hulk’s powers.
In addition to having Brawn in this new group of superheroes, other characters include Cindy Moon (Silk), Agent Jimmy Woo and Shang-Chi. Newer Marvel characters joining this group include Pearl Pangan (Wave), Lei Ling (Aero), and Lin Lie (Sword Master), Marvel Entertainment reports.
