Girl. Genius. Hero. Unstoppable.
Nadia spent the entire first half of her life a captive of The Red Room, but now this teenage super-scientist is on her own for the first time, and she’s ready to spread her wings!  Hank Pym’s daughter has a lot of time to make up for, and she’s determined to change the world.  You know, if she can get her U.S. citizenship first. Guest-starring Ms. Marvel and Mockingbird!

Marvel has had a strong dedication to diversifying their line of superheroes in the past few years, especially when it comes to featuring more women led titles. Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, She-Hulk, Hellcat, and so many amazing Marvel women have had their own solo-titles since the initial Marvel NOW! launch in 2012. Even better, the creators putting the series have been more diverse. The newest addition to the Marvel line is THE UNSTOPPABLE WASP, starring Nadia Pym, the teenage, estranged daughter of Hank Pym, and his first wife, as the new bearer of the Wasp title.

Writer Jeremy Whitley has been working more at Marvel lately, with work on a plethora of titles, but this is his first solo series with the publisher. A welcome voice in superhero comics, with a penchant for enjoyable, positive, uplifting books, Whitley is setting Wasp up to be a stand out series for Marvel. The series that he writes and created, Princeless, is a strong indicator of the kind of fun and sincere book that Wasp will be. He’s a sweet, genuine writer that injects his books with a lot of heart and positive energy, making him a great fit for Nadia’s teenager/young adult mindset. Having dealt with her fair share of struggle in life, Nadia is ready to take the world on headfirst.

Artist Elsa Charretier and colorist Megan Wilson bring so much to The Unstoppable Wasp. The simple, clean line work and flat colors, which seem almost pastel-like at times, work so well this books attitude. A big stand out was Charretier’s panel layouts, which always feel super fun and inventive, making it look unlike anything else coming out that it might otherwise be compared to.

The Unstoppable Wasp #1 from Marvel Comics is available now in print and online digitally at Comixology.com.
