MARK MILLAR RELAUNCHES KICK-ASS WITH BLACK FEMALE HERO

Submitted by: Odio @ 03:49 PM | Wednesday, June 22, 2016 | (url: http://nerdist.co...)

Kick-Ass is coming back to comic book store shelves soon but not the way you remember it. Writer and co-creator Mark Millar has announced that a new Kick-Ass book is coming early next year, and this time, its not teenager Dave Lizewski who becomes the real-world superhero. Instead, the new Kick-Ass is a new, black female character. Kick-Ass: The New Girl will also be based out of a different city than the original series, with an all-new supporting cast as well.

Kick-Ass: The New Girl will be drawn by series co-creator John Romita Jr. who has committed to work on the book for three years, according to Millar. Also re-launching at the same time will be a new Hit-Girl series, which will be drawn by Rafael Albuquerque. Millar will script the first story arc, and then former Deadpool and Wolverine writer Daniel Way will take over as the regular author. It is unknown if the Hit-Girl of this new series is someone new under the mask as well. Both books are expected to launch in January, and both will be the first monthly, ongoing series from the Millarworld imprint.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Millar has this to say about the change in the character: Comics is not short of white males aged around 30; that demographic seems pretty well catered for in popular culture. I dont think many blonde white guys around 30 feel under-represented when they pick up comic or watch a movie. Being older or younger or female or African-American just seems more interesting to me as a writer because this character is quite unique and opens up story possibilities that havent been tried in almost eighty years of superhero fiction. This woman has a completely different take on Kick-Ass.

Whether by the sword or the slow decay of time, Aragorn will die. And there will be no comfort for you. No comfort to ease the pain of his passing. He will come to death, an image of the splendour of the kings of men in glory undimmed before the breaking of the world. But you, my daughter, you will linger on in darkness and in doubt, as nightfall in winter that comes without a star. Here you will dwell, bound to your grief, under the fading trees, until all the world is changed and the long years of your life are utterly spent.
