Some of the most powerful superheroes in the Marvel universe are women.
So it's about time "Earth's Mightiest Heroes" went for pure girl power!
Marvel has just announced that its newest Avengers title A-Force will feature a team of all female heroes!

This is hardly the first all-female team in Marvel; recent incarnations of the X-Men and Defenders have both been made up solely of women, not to mention a dozen other teams over the years.
But this is the first time an Avengers roster — Marvel's flagship team — has been pure heroine.
A-Force will be comprised of She-Hulk, X-Men regular Dazzler, Inhumans queen Medusa, Runaways' magically-powered Nico Minoru, and a brand new powerhouse called Singularity.
Based on the premiere cover (above) we can expect to see team-ups with women from across the Marvel universe.
Co-writer G. Willow Wilson says:
"We've purposefully assembled a team composed of very different characters — from disparate parts of the Marvel U, with very different power sets, identities and ideologies. They'll all have to come together to answer some big questions: What would you sacrifice to succeed? What is being a hero worth?"
Girls are never going to grow up believing they can be president until they grow up believing they can kick evil's butt!
