Alright tumblr I have got a bone to pick with you, and it’s about why the hell no one is talking about New Warriors.
"But wait Rain, there’s only 3 issues out so far!" Doesn’t matter. This series is great and I’m going to tell you why.
Just look at this cast of characters! Over half the cast is POC and no one’s even talking about it. We have an African American woman who’s balancing university and saving New York, an Asian American teen that also happens to be an Inhuman, a Hispanic teen that’s already helped save the world multiple times, an Atlantian woman set out to avenge her people, a clone with a history of failing to be a hero, a girl with no past that’s also a demigod that never stops talking, a mutant and an Avenger who’s just trying to do the right thing, and a science experiment gone wrong with some serious past issues with PTSD. That’s some seriously diverse representation going on here.
It’s another young team, (looking at you Young Avengers fans) and it’s a team with a lot of history and really terrible past legacy to make up for (anyone remember Stamford and the beginning of the Civil War?).
So far they’re the only ones paying attention to the beginning of a mass genocide of everything not “purely human” on planet Earth of being led by the High Evolutionary in response for the impending return of the Celestials to planet Earth.
It’s a ragtag team with a lot of issues but it also has a lot of heart and it’s my number one recommendation right now and I’m positively determined to make everyone I know read this. So here are some download links.

Go forth and spread the word.
The mutant is also Jewish, too, if we’re talking about ethnicity, so definitely worth noting. :D
