Following the end of Civil War II, a number of young heroes will be handing in their Avengers memberships and making their own mark in the new series Champions.
Ms Marvel, Nova, Miles Morales, Amadeus Cho, the young Cyclops and Viv Vision will lose all confidence in their fellow older superheroes and unite under their own moniker, holding the more experienced superheroes accountable for allowing a second Civil War to run riot through the superhero communities. The new team of youngsters will strike out on their own and hope to make a greater difference in the world as Champions, with the book's title not having been used since the seventies.
Over at Time and reported extensively across many media outlets has been the revelation that Tony Stark will be stepping away from the role of Iron Man. Following Civil War II, 15 year old African-American girl Riri Williams will become the new Iron Man. First appearing only a few months ago in Invincible Iron Man #7*, Williams will join the burgeoning ranks of female superhero analogues that are "replacing" their male counterparts, which have recently included Jane Foster as the current Thor and Mary Jane as the Iron Spider.
