The OFFICIAL New Warriors: Starring Kaine Thread!
 
New Warriors starts in 2014 with a new #1 issue.


New Warriors is another Marvel attempt at the revival of the once hit 90’s series, this time as an All-New Marvel NOW! launch, this time reuniting Speedball, Justice, and Nova (though not the original New Warrior), along with a slew of new members, including a certain fairly-recognizable guy that can do everything a spider can.

Written by Chris Yost with art by Marcus To, according to the publisher a “different kind of war” is coming with “mutants, Inhumans, Atlanteans, Deviants, Clones, alien half-breeds, magical beings” all identified as threats to humanity and “targeted for extinction.”

The two original members and the new Nova assemble a new team from different corners of the MU to “save the world and have fun doing it.”

The final announcement of the panel, revealing the project behind the "War" teaser: A new "New Warriors," coming in February from writer Chris Yost and artist Marcus To. Members include, according to Wacker, Justice, Nova, Speedball, Scarlet Spider and Sun Girl. Amanat said it's brings together members of various groups in the Marvel Universe -- mutants, aliens, clones and more -- who have been "deemed a threat" by the High Evolutionary.

Along with the action, Amanat said, it's about the cast becoming friends and learning to work together. Wacker said the creative team is going for a vibe somewhere between the Wolfman/Perez "Teen Titans" and Brian K. Vaughan's "Runaways."

Chris Yost exclusive interview:

Newsarama: Chris, first of all, New Warriors is one of those titles that had a bright heyday that Marvel has tried several times over the years to revive/relaunch. What's your attraction to the concept today?

Chris Yost: I've been a fan of the New Warriors since day one, when Fabian Nicieza and Mark Bagley launched it. What I loved about it was that six heroes from all different corners of the Marvel Universe came together to just do good. Mutants, super humans, Atlanteans, space guy… guy with skateboard… it didn't matter. They were heroes, and they were out there fighting the good fight. If I had powers, or a skateboard, I'd do the same. And they were young. Idealistic. Trying to prove themselves to the world.

I've worked on a wide range of Marvel properties in comics, animation, and film, but I always come back to the younger characters. The ones who haven't seen it all and done it all. They're our window to the world.

Nrama: So why do you think a New Warriors revival can succeed this time where in the past they've been short-lived?

Yost: A few things: Fan favorite characters, huge stories that tie into the core of the Marvel Universe, diversity, huge action, huge fun, and Marcus To.

Nrama: Justice, Speedball and the new Nova (sort of) are certainly iconic members, but can you talk about what interest you guys may or may not have in some of the other well-known members like Firestar, Namorita, Night Thrasher, Richard Rider and some of the others that came after?

Yost: Well, Thrasher and Richard Rider are dead, Namorita is, I believe, trapped in the Cancer-verse, and Firestar… is occupied. Members like Silhouette, Turbo, even newer members like Debrii… maybe down the road. But right now we're focusing on the core three and some newcomers. We get to see what the concept of New Warriors means to the founding members, and new heroes alike.

Nrama: Of course of course our readers are looking at the image right now wondering about the members (although at least one of them is pretty obvious). Can you give fans any names and whatever you can about them?

Yost: Sun Girl, a human. Haechi, an Inhuman. Aracely, a Demigod. Water Snake, an Atlantean. And a Clone by the name of Scarlet Spider.

Nrama: Can you also give readers a few thoughts on each of the three ‘core’ members - what you like about the character and why you selected them for the team?

Yost: Justice isn't sure the New Warriors are needed in an Avengers world, especially given how tainted the name became after Stamford. Speedball needs the New Warriors more than ever as he struggles with his personal demons. And Nova… he's the new kid on the block, curious to be on a team with people who knew the previous Nova.

Nrama: Now, is the team brought together to combat the threats to Earth identified in the Marvel description of the series, or are they serving as similar role as the Uncanny Avengers, bringing together members of those feared groups together to protect the earth and show that they can work together?

Yost: Uncanny Avengers has a very specific mission statement, especially after the events of Avengers vs. X-Men. New Warriors has a broader playing field in that every single corner of the Marvel Universe is what we're protecting. Space, magic, mutants, clones, Atlanteans… you name it, the New Warriors have a specific reason to go there. They're going to be the Ambassadors of anything not human.

Nrama: Will the team have any relation to the Avengers, which has sort of become a overarching brand in the Marvel Universe, or will this team be going it alone?

Yost: The Avengers will definitely have a presence in the book, as Justice is a former Avenger… but New Warriors is its own thing. The very question of the need for New Warriors when you've got the Avengers is front and center.

Nrama: Speaking of which, what do you think distinguishing the New Warriors from say the Young Avengers? Will any rivalry exists between those groups or do you consider them of different generations?

Yost: Fewer connections to the Avengers. And there are a few members of each team that would fight with anybody, I'm sure. But the Warriors, with one or two exceptions, are pros. While still young, they've been doing this for a while.

Nrama: Okay then Chris, the standard last question catchall question - what would you like fans know that we haven't covered so far?

Yost: The stakes are high. The action is huge. The hero-ing is super. This is old school Marvel Universe action that's international, interplanetary, inter dimensional. There's drama, romance, and world saving. And it's fun.

Ummm wasn't it just Starlord and Nova that went into the Cancer-verse while Namorita stayed behind in the 616?

Not sure... but in Yost's defense... he says "I believe"...

:yay:

The only one I care about in this is Kaine. I can't believe they canceled his series.

You must not be familiar with how the business works then, because this was pretty predictable for them to do.

What will this be the 4th relaunch of New Warriors, or something? How many of those relaunches lasted beyond 30 issues? Some didn't make it past 12. *sigh*.... I don't have high hopes.

It's a shame they cancelled SS. I thought it wasn't as good as it used to be, but it was still one of Marvel's stronger books.

Well they have yet to top the original series anyway. No matter how many times it's been done it's an always welcome return. :up:

Looking at the team line up for this book and reading what they have planned, it really looks like Yost wants to go back to that tried and true formula that worked pretty well for the first volume. He really wants to honor the good in there and not make the mistakes the volumes after it made.

Considering how well he handled Kaine's solo and the issues of the main Spidey title he wrote/co wrote, I've got high hopes for it right now.

Re: The OFFICIAL New Warriors: Starring Kaine Thread!
 
Well like I said over in the Marvel NOW thread when this was first announced...we're lucky it's a guy like Yost and Loeb didn't follow Nova over.

Re: The OFFICIAL New Warriors: Starring Kaine Thread!
 
Does this mean that Nova is getting canceled as well?

Aloha,
Agreed.
I really miss the original Night Thrasher.
Spidey rules

The premise sounds like it's a spin on The Exiles...
Or is it just me?

I'm liking Sun Girl.
Is she a new character? I've never heard of her before, so I'm assuming, yes.

What's everyone elses feelings on this? I haven't had a chance to read it but I've heard some pretty bad things. I'm still getting it because a.) the Scarlet Spider series shouldn't have been cancelled it was just fine and don't give me the BS about the sales b.) I support Scarlet Spider no matter what and if that means I buy a New Warriors book for the first time since the 90's when Scarlet Spider was on that team...then so be it. However, Marvel is trying and I give them credit. They are doing so pretty good stuff right now and maybe they'll prove us wrong. Right? Maybe too much wishful thinking? Yeah, probably. :csad:

I'm enjoying it so far. Go read the reviews and discussion about it in the Bought/Thought tread. Don't believe what some idiot fanboys are posting in some lame blog.

Re: The OFFICIAL New Warriors: Starring Kaine Thread!
 
I really liked Issues 1 & 2.
I'm liking SunGirl.
One of my favourite new costumes...
