The recently-revitalized Squadron Supreme are spinning out into their own two-issue series as part of Marvel’s summer event Empyre.
This new incarnation of the team, titled the Squadron Supreme of America, is now U.S.’s premiere state-sanctioned superhero force. The group is comprised of Hyperion, Power Princess, Dr. Spectrum, Blur, and Nighthawk – with the latter serving as team leader. They work alongside U.S. government liaison Phil Coulson. This new version of the team was recently introduced in Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness’ Avengers run.
“The Squadron Supreme of America finds itself dead-center in battleground Washington, D.C., caught between two invading forces in a story that puts a modern spin on some of the Silver Age of Comics’ more familiar tropes,” said Empyre: Squadron Supreme writer Mark Waid. “It’s a blast to write.”
For this series, Waid is working with Dio Neves, who recently finished up work on DC’s Deathstroke.
