FIRST LOOK: Battleworld’s Brightest Teens Are Now – RUNAWAYS!

March 2nd, 2015 by Marc Comments


This June, a cult-favorite comes to Battleworld in RUNAWAYS #1 – a brand new Secret Wars series! Rising comic stars Noelle Stevenson (NIMONA, Lumberjanes) and Sanford Greene (Uncanny Avengers) bring you a new twist on a modern Marvel classic that’s sure to appeal to Runaways fans old and new!

The best and brightest teens from all corners of Battleworld are hand-picked to attend the most prestigious academy on the planet’s capital. Yet not all is as it seems within these hallowed halls. This esteemed educational establishment may just be grooming the next generation of super villains!

What happens when the new class learns they’re on the fast track to evil and their headmaster is a diabolical super villain? RUN AWAY!

“Noelle and Sanford have come up with a fun cast of alternate reality versions of some fan-favorite characters (including original Runaway Molly Hayes!), plus a few new characters who we’re really excited about,” said editor Wil Moss. “It’s a different take on RUNAWAYS, for sure, but that same fresh, adventurous, character-driven spirit of the original series remains the same!”

Now, teenagers Molly Hayes, Jubilee, Bucky Barnes, Cloak & Dagger, Amadeus Cho, Skaar and a few new faces are striking out on their own — taking on Battleworld, learning to deal with each other, and learning to deal with themselves. Enter the world of a Secret Wars story unlike any other when Stevenson and Greene bring you a new spin on the Runaways this June in RUNAWAYS #1!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
