Comics THORsday: Champions #1 (+ Giveaway)

This THORsday we’re going to explore the first issue of Champions, a new comic book from Marvel. It all starts when Ms. Marvel quits the Avengers, fed up with their way of doing things. As she puts it, adults punch a lot but don’t fix anything. As she quits, she calls Nova and Spider-Man to a meeting to talk with them. She proposes to do something as a team, and do things in a different way. And so, they start recruiting some other heroes. They start with the Hulk who is trying to save some miners from a collapsing mine. Unable to do it alone, the arrival of the team proves a great help. And so, he joins them.

Hulk then proposes to recruit someone else: his games partner Viv, the daughter of the Vision. Lika all the Visions, she is equipped with all the technology the Visions use and can do the same things as the Vision can do. She joins the team on the spot. Viv spots a crime happening nearby and they all go to help.

The villain has imprisoned many women and plans to get rid of all of them and leave no proof about him. But, our friends save the day. Many people have gathered around them and have recorded in their smartphones what they did. Public opinion with the Avengers is pretty low. But, Ms. Marvel sets thing right.
