All Female Avengers Team called A-FORCE to Debut in May 2015

Marvel Comics announced a new all-woman team of Avengers earlier today. The book is called A-FORCE and it will be spinning out of the "Secret Wars" storyline -- something I'm not completely sold on. But I do like this team of heroes:
Heading up the lineup will be She-Hulk, Dazzler, Medusa, Nico Minoru, a "cosmically powered" new hero named Singularity as well as other heroes yet to be revealed. The cover art from Jim Cheung features Marvel heroines from all parts of the universe, including Rogue, Storm, Wasp, Elektra, Aurora, Spectrum, Black Widow, Firestar, Hellcat, Jubilee, Moondragon and others. Fitting in with "Secret Wars'" multiverse mash-up feel, some of the characters on the cover are wearing older duds -- She-Hulk is back in her '80s Avengers uniform while Rogue is rocking her '90s Jim Lee look -- alongside characters sporting newer designs, like Captain Marvel and Spider-Gwen.

“We've purposefully assembled a team composed of very different characters -- from disparate parts of the Marvel U, with very different power sets, identities and ideologies," said Wilson in the announcement. "They'll all have to come together to answer some big questions: What would you sacrifice to succeed? What is being a hero worth?”
Interestingly, A-FORCE was originally supposed to be exclusively announced on ABC's "The View." But then the segment got bumped for something else. So lots of comic book fans are upset that they wasted an hour of their life watching "The View."

A-FORCE is scheduled to debut in May 2015.
