After plotting behind the scenes, the Daughters of Liberty, including Invisible Woman, Misty Knight and Mockingbird, enact their plan to break Captain America out of prison. But they are not the only ladies looking to have a big month in June’s Fantasy Comic League standings. Black Cat, Spider-Man’s favorite feline foil, gets her first ever ongoing series. Ironheart teams up with fellow Champion Nadia van Dyne in her ongoing title and Rachel Summers looks to rid herself of her latest Hound entrapment in X-Force. After breaking free of Nuclear Man’s post-apocalyptic island prison, Captain Marvel focuses on the “War of the Realms” in her solo title, and she is bringing Black Widow (and Doctor Strange) along with her. Deadpool and the Superior Spider-Man also begin to tie into Marvel’s big summer event.
The “Age of X-Man” begins to wrap up with the event’s tie-in books reaching their fifth and final issues. Annuals return in the month of June for the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Amazing Spider-Man, which features a team-up between Spider-Ham and Spider-Gwen. A few writers return to some familiar characters when Peter David pens the Incredible Hulk: Last Call one shot and Chris Claremont, Larry Hama and Sam Keith contribute to Wolverine: Exit Wounds. Donny Cates also begins a Silver Surfer miniseries spinning out of Cates’ first issue of the recent Guardians of the Galaxy.
Dopplegangers or repeat appearances of our main characters are found in the Essentials, Marvel Action, Marvel Legends, Marvel Tales, Marvel Super Hero Adventures and Mighty World of Marvel 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).
