Official Press Release

Debuting in the pages of Brian K. Vaughan's Runaways in 2005, the team of former teen heroes looking to kick their super hero addiction is back by popular demand in Loners #1.

They were once the teen heroes known as Darkhawk, Turbo, Ricochet, Green Goblin, and Lightspeed. Now they're just five adults trying to stay out of the spandex. But the group now known as the Loners are about to find out that quitting the super hero biz is easier said than done.

"As a huge fan of teen drama, I've been dying to get my hands on a diverse cast of young Marvel characters with the personalities and relationships that make them real people as well as super heroes," says writer C.B. Cebulski. "Loners has finally provided me with that opportunity! Spinning out of Runaways, Loners stars an all-star ensemble cast of teen heroes looking to possibly get out of the super hero game, but once you have the powers, can you ever truly give up the lifestyle? If you ever wondered what happened to Darkhawk, Ricochet, Turbo, Green Goblin and Julie Power, this is the book for you! And you don't want to miss the surprise guests along the way!"

Founded by Turbo and the heroic Green Goblin (as well as anonymous backing from another former teen hero, Rick Jones), the Loners' focus is to help fellow teenage super heroes adjust to normal lives and dissuade other super-powered teenagers from becoming heroes. But will the call to action be too much for the Loners to resist?

From writer C.B. Cebulski (X-Men: Fairy Tales), artist Kevin Moline (Rogue), and cover artist Jason Pearson (Body Bags), Loners explodes from the pages of the fan-favorite Runaways into your local comic shop this April.
