Marvel's Next Generation Of Heroes Outlawed

Marvel's Next Generation Of Heroes Outlawed


Jay Cochran - December 10, 2019
This March, Marvel’s brightest heroes will defend their very right to save the world in OUTLAWED, an event one-shot that will kick off one of 2020’s biggest events! Announced this morning by A.V. Club, a devastating tragedy causes the government to crackdown on young vigilantes, sending shockwaves throughout the entire Marvel Universe. With various stories spinning out of it throughout next year, OUTLAWED is just the epic beginning of a bold new era for Marvel’s most promising heroes!

With the lives of Marvel’s most popular heroes from Miles Morales to Ms. Marvel thrown into chaos, OUTLAWED will raise tough questions that Chicago-based writer and scholar Dr. Eve L. Ewing (IRONHEART) is more than ready to tackle. “To me, this story isn't just about young people being in conflict with the government, but much bigger questions about what we ask of young people, how they're expected to be independent sometimes and subservient other times,” Ewing said in an exclusive interview with A.V. Club. “Every era of history brings new challenges, and young people today are coming of age… yet we often don't recognize their wisdom and their insights. It's like we get above a certain age and lose all empathy. I just wanted to explore that tension, and them being superheroes really ups the stakes because they're literally out there saving lives every day, but aren't seen as full people or full citizens. AND, at the same time, maybe the law is a good idea? Maybe it really is for everyone's protection? It's intentionally kind of morally ambiguous.”

“We’re bringing the next generation of heroes to the forefront in a major way and swinging for the fences in terms of story, stakes and scale,” added Editor Alanna Smith. “OUTLAWED introduces an ongoing status quo that will be reflected in books across the line—almost every active character who’s under 21 (and even a few who are older) will be affected by the decisions made in OUTLAWED, and they won’t all agree on whether the new world order is good or bad. But there are real, serious consequences now for those who go against the ruling passed down in OUTLAWED, and it’ll interfere with their lives in a way they’ve never experienced, leading to some really interesting stories.”

II can pretty much guarantee it will. Judging by their last several "Big Event" releases, Marvel is leaving no cliche unturned.

Chief, pretty sure you can't even name them three of these events off the top of your head. Focus on talking about things you can talk about.

Just because the Synopisis doesn't mentioned Hero vs Hero doesn't mean it won't happen, look at AXIS.

Hopefully the kids are more willing to talk things out and compromise unlike the adults, so we don't get a hero vs hero story

One would think that if the story really focused on hero vs. hero, they would at the very least mention it if not flat-out promote it as such, which is what they did with both Civil Wars, as well as Schism. And technically speaking, AXISwasn't really a hero vs. hero story since the second part of that equation had been turned genuinely evil.

The synopsis does indicate thatnot everybody will have the same opinion to the outlawing, but it doesn't seem to imply the "whose side are you on" and "debate withfisticuffs" aspects which are the meat of any Civil War story.

There are still sides to take, their will be those who agree and those who don't. Those who will obey the law and those will be fight it it, just like Civil War. Hopefully though this will be handled way better than both Civil War and especially Civil War 2

The premise is similar to Civil War only on a surface level, really. CW involved the outlawing of heroes, but only if they were unregistered. The focal point of the story was the hero vs. hero angle, the battle of ideologies and the assimilation of vigilantism into the system. This here is a completeprohibition with no "unless" and no sides to take.

Sounds too similar to Civil War for my liking. Hopefully it won't be a killfest like some of Marvel's other teen crossovers

If she can rehab some of these Champions characters in a similar way she did Riri I'm all in to give it a shot. With the whole outlaw thing I think they're trying to do revival of the 70's/80's X-Men vibe, which was good and entertaining. Back then they had a message but it was all done through allegory, not just a slap in the face. If they could pull that off it would be yet another move in the right direction for Marvel.

Ithinkwe may be experiencing the youth's allegories as a slap in the face because we're older and get it. I may be wrong, but I think that our experience is the very same thing that could be making us feel like they're dumbing down. I mean, it's happened to me talking to my younger siblings about different subjects, and they're not that much younger.

But that aside, you're mixing up Al Ewing with Eve L. Ewing. Eve is the one writing this thing. She's a newcomer, but a rising star. Her only Marvel work so far has been Ironheart, which turned Riri Williams into a bearable character.
