The synopsis and art for Young Squadron reveal a Squadron Supreme-inspired Miles Morales, Kamala Khan and Sam Alexander in the Heroes Reborn world.
Marvel has released the first images and synopsis for Heroes Reborn: Young Squadron, which reimagines Miles Morales’ Spider-Man, Kamala Khan’s Ms. Marvel and Sam Alexander’s Nova as they exist within the Heroes Reborn timeline.
According to ComicBook.com, Young Squadron will depict the Champions members as superheroes inspired by the Squadron Supreme, who exist in the Avengers’ place as Earth’s primary defenders. Here, Kamala becomes Girl Power in honor of Power Princess, Miles is this universe’s Falcon as a prodigy of Nighthawk and Sam takes after Doctor Spectrum under the moniker Kid Spectrum. Together, the trio will try to live up to the values shared by their heroes and face Deadpool as their first major antagonist.

Young Squadron writer Jim Zub teased how this one-shot will tie into Heroes Reborn‘s alternate world created by Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness, saying, “Jason and Ed have built an incredibly fun premise in Heroes Reborn. It’s a twisted mirror that reflects the characters we know and love set against both the familiar and the wildly unexpected. Taking that core idea and pulling it further out to show how it affects the Champions trio of Miles, Kamala and Sam is a blast, and getting to do that with my Champions collaborator Steven Cummings makes it even more fun.”

Heroes Reborn borrows its name from the 1996-1997 Marvel crossover famously outsourced to Jim Lee’s WildStorm Studios and Rob Liefeld’s Extreme Studios. Marvel recently unveiled an illustrated trailer for the event told from Blade’s perspective, who reveals that “two weeks ago I woke up in a world where no one’s ever heard of the Avengers.” In this world, he learns that Steve Rogers died in World War II and Tony Stark was never in a position where he needed to build his Iron Man armor, among other major changes to the Marvel status quo.
Heroes Reborn: Young Squadron #1, by Jim Zub and Steve Cummings, goes on sale in May from Marvel Comics.
