There’s a new super team arriving in the Marvel Universe and they’re a force to be reckoned with. Marvel has announced via Mashable the debut of "A-Force," a new team and series from co-writers G. Willow Wilson ("Ms. Marvel") and Marguerite Bennett ("Angela: Asgard’s Assassin") and artist Jorge Molina ("X-Men").

Heading up the lineup will be She-Hulk, Dazzler, Medusa, Nico Minoru, a "cosmically powered" new hero named Singularity as well as other heroes yet to be revealed. The cover art from Jim Cheung features Marvel heroines from all parts of the universe, including Rogue, Storm, Wasp, Elektra, Aurora, Spectrum, Black Widow, Firestar, Hellcat, Jubilee, Moondragon and others. Fitting in with "Secret Wars'" multiverse mash-up feel, some of the characters on the cover are wearing older duds -- She-Hulk is back in her '80s Avengers uniform while Rogue is rocking her '90s Jim Lee look -- alongside characters sporting newer designs, like Captain Marvel and Spider-Gwen.

“We've purposefully assembled a team composed of very different characters -- from disparate parts of the Marvel U, with very different power sets, identities and ideologies," said Wilson in the announcement. "They'll all have to come together to answer some big questions: What would you sacrifice to succeed? What is being a hero worth?”

"A-Force" launches in May.
