FREEFORM ANNOUNCES CHARACTERS FOR MARVEL TELEVISION'S FIRST LIVE-ACTION COMEDY SERIES "MARVEL'S NEW WARRIORS" WITH CUSTOM COMIC ART

Characters clockwise from top: Zack Smith (Microbe), Dwayne Taylor (Night Thrasher), Craig Hollis (Mister Immortal), Doreen Green (Squirrel Girl), Deborah Fields (Debrii) and Robbie Baldwin (Speedball).

Artist is Elizabeth Torque

"Marvel's New Warriors" is a new comedic live-action adaptation of the popular Marvel comic featuring young adult heroes. This marks Marvel's first foray into comedy for a television series. "Marvel's New Warriors" is about six young people with powers living and working together. With powers and abilities on the opposite end of the spectrum of The Avengers, the New Warriors want to make a difference in the world ... even if the world isn't ready. Not quite super, not yet heroes, "Marvel's New Warriors" is about that time in your life when you first enter adulthood and feel like you can do everything and nothing at once - except in this world, bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates. The network has ordered ten 30-minute episodes slated to debut in 2018.

"The New Warriors" were created by Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz when they first appeared in "The Mighty Thor" comic book series in 1989. They proved to be so popular that one year later, they were featured in their own series by Fabian Nicieza and Mark Bagley. Since then, "The New Warriors" and their lineup have undergone many changes including the fresh and innovative take by Zeb Wells and Skottie Young on which the television series is based.

The series is co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios. Marvel's Jeph Loeb ("Marvel's The Punisher," "Marvel's The Defenders"), and Jim Chory ("Marvel's The Punisher," "Marvel's The Defenders") serve as executive producers. Kevin Biegel ("Cougar Town") serves as showrunner and executive producer.

The following characters will be featured in the series:

Doreen Green (Squirrel Girl)

Superpower: "The powers of a squirrel, the powers of a girl" (is acrobatic, strong, can fight, can talk to squirrels)

Doreen is a totally empowered fangirl. She is a natural leader - confident and tough, but not innocent. Doreen is bouncy and energetic, and her greatest quality is her optimism ... She has faith in others and inspires people to believe in themselves. She also takes her pet squirrel, Tippy Toe, everywhere.

Craig Hollis (Mister Immortal)

Superpower: Cannot die. Ever. Maybe. So he says.

The team troublemaker and lothario ... Craig is kind of like "The Most Interesting Man Alive," except he's more cocky than confident and, at times, charmingly grumpy. Although Craig's superpower seems amazing, he hasn't made use of it at all - he's lazy and figures if he has all the time in the world to learn how to fight, what's the rush?

Dwayne Taylor (Night Thrasher)

Superpower: None

Dwayne is a local celebrity "hero" with his very own YouTube channel. Brilliant, strong, noble and maybe a bit full of himself, Dwayne is a shameless self-promoter and entrepreneur. But he also deeply believes in justice - at least his version of it. Dwayne hides the fact that he comes from a really rich family because he's afraid he'll lose his street cred.

Robbie Baldwin (Speedball)

Superpower: Can launch kinetic balls of energy

Robbie grew up watching Quinjets take off from Avengers Tower and loves the idea of being a hero. He's an impulsive and immature people-pleaser with a misplaced sense of confidence. Although you would think throwing kinetic balls of energy would be awesome and effective - his are completely out of control.

Zack Smith (Microbe)

Superpower: Can talk to germs

Zack is a shy hypochondriac whose ability nearly makes him a telepath - the germs tell him where you've been, what you ate and who you hung out with. It's impossible to keep secrets around him. He's a big sweet guy the team takes under their wing, and they help him find and grow his own confidence.

Deborah Fields (Debrii)

Superpower: Low level telekinetic; trickster

Deborah is proud, funny and quick-witted. Confidently out as a lesbian, Deborah has experienced deep loss in her personal life as a direct result of super "heroics." She can take care of herself, or at least says she can. She's the one who calls people on their BS and has no fear of putting her opinions out there.
