Just Say No To New Warriors Comedy Series & Marvel TV


It's being reported that Marvel TV and ABC Studios is developing a New Warriors TV show that will feature Squirrel Girl and will be a comedy.

According to TV Line, the New Warriors comedy TV show will be a half-hour project and is currently being shopped around to cable and streaming outlets.

The New Warriors comedy show is described as: the junior version of The Avengers, the New Warriors are a superhero squad made up of teenagers, one of whom would include Doreen Green (aka Squirrel Girl). For the record, Squirrel Girl can do more than just communicate with the world’s vast squirrel population; she also possesses super-speed and strength.

Cosmic Book News has to give a big thumbs down to this project as Richard Rider Nova was a member of the New Warriors.

It is not known if Nova will be a part of the New Warriors TV series.

As many of our regular readers know, our site launched as a result of the Marvel COSMIC Annihilation, Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy comics, the same comics that inspired and created Disney's new billion dollar Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.

However, when it was learned that the Guardians of the Galaxy movie was getting made by Marvel Studios, the head honchos at Marvel Comics fired the creative teams on the comics and replaced them with -- themselves. Head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb took over and replaced Richard Rider Nova. Likewise, Brian Michael Bendis, a member of the Marvel Creative Committee that knew the movie was getting made, put himself on the Guardians of the Galaxy comics. Both of their comics have been failures, and honestly an insult to comic book fans everywhere -- and especially the previous creators, fans and source material.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has also recently distanced himself from both Jeph Loeb and Brian Michael Bendis. Marvel Studios has nothing to do with Loeb's Marvel TV, and Feige fired the Marvel Creative Committee and Bendis from being involved with the movies.

The Marvel comics have been nothing but Loeb, Bendis and Joe Quesada's breeding ground for Marvel TV, and they are using the comics to further their own agendas through other media outlets which have a much greater audience than the comics.

In addition, Marvel TV and Loeb cancelled the uber popular Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes animated series, and Loeb put his Nova in the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series. 

Marvel TV under Loeb is also responsible for the less than stellar Agents Of SHIELD and Agent Carter ABC series. Most recently saw the Agents Of SHIELD spinoff, Marvel's Most Wanted, get axed. While the Marvel Netflix series do seem an improvement, the writing and the quality of the series must be questioned as they're nowhere near as good as their movie counterparts or other comic series and similar genre series on television and cable networks (basically it's just cool to see the characters on Netflix).

Marvel Comics, under Axel Alonso, Bendis and Quesada, is also failing as sales have been nose diving, and Marvel Comics is forced to relaunch their series seemingly every other year. 

We encourage fans to continue to stake a stance regarding how Jeph Loeb, Brian Michael Bendis and Joe Quesda treat the Marvel characters as well as the Marvel COSMIC characters. Fans have already successfully boycotted Loeb's Nova Marvel comic, and the Bendis comic is now suffering a similar fate. Those same fans have also successfully gathered a petition to get Richard Rider in the MCU.

It is critical that you pay attention at this time: Don't let them butcher any more Marvel characters.
