Monthly Marvel Preview: March 2019

The women of Marvel are going higher, further, faster in the month of March. Captain Marvel stands ready to take her place as Marvel’s top heroine when her movie drops and kicks off Women’s History Month. The Fantasy Comic League celebrates the occasion by focusing on Girl Power! Scarlet Witch and Spectrum join Carol Danvers in the top tiers of the preview charts with four estimated appearances in the Avengers: No Road Home weekly event. Kamala Khan, Carol’s Ms. Marvel successor, looks to have a magnificent month. She gets a new title written by Saladin Ahmed, which gives him control of two of Marvel’s most popular youth Champions. Ms. Marvel is front in center for the new Marvel Rising series which focuses on some of Marvel’s hottest leading ladies: Squirrel Girl, Ms. America, Spider-Gwen and of course Captain Marvel. The other hot tip for the month is Domino’s new series, Hotshots. Her Posse gets an assist from Marvel’s top femme fatale, Black Widow.

The Daughters of Liberty – Mockingbird, Spider-Woman, Misty Knight and Agent 13, to name a few – look to step up and help Captain America clear his name in his own solo title. Other important ladies of the month include Bêlit, Conan’s compatriot, when she gets her own solo title; Shuri teams up with Miles Morales; and Squirrel Girl reaches her 50th issue! Doctor Strange also hits a milestone with his 400th comic and the Playstation 4 Spider-Man stars in his first solo series. More big events for March include the continuation of Age of X-Man with the start of Prisoner X and Apocalypse and the X-Tracts. Kraven begins his new hunt in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man, and the Cosmic Ghost Rider gets his own Deadpool-like chance to destroy Marvel History. Hulkverines releases its second act making the Hulk and Wolverine top picks for the month.

Monthly theme for the Free-for-All Themed challenge: In celebration of Women’s History Month, draft a team of only female characters. Restrictions on team affiliations and power selections still apply. A list of eligible female heroes is provided at this link. Please provide your Free-for-All rosters prior to Wednesday, March 6, 2019 using the online draft form.

Dopplegangers or repeat appearances of our main characters are found in the Marvel Action, Marvel Legends, Marvel Tales and Marvel Super Hero Adventures books as well as any MCU tie-in series and thus do not count for their prime universe counterparts. Please see the attached Power Summary file for further power clarifications and follow along with our #FantasyComicLeague tweets on Twitter for official power scoring and discussions. Appearance estimates, based on comic solicitations and cover artwork provided by the Marvel Database wiki, are meant as a guideline and not an indication of a specific draft order. Character names, team designations and power sets conform to the most current information provided by the Database.

Power designations are simplified for easier classification and choice, providing the majority of the heroes with up to 11 eligible powers from which to choose. As a reminder, you may only have one hero per team designation on your roster and are allowed to select three powers from the heroes’ power set. Powers in (parenthesis) are a subset of the overall ability and can be selected as well as the generic use of that power. For example, Deadpool can be drafted as any of his four team classifications and can use Weapons, Blades and Guns as his three powers (Blades and Guns being a subset of the overall Weapons skill).
