Lunella Lafayette is Moon Girl, Marvel’s latest female protagonist
Marvel is continuing their expansion of new series this November with a friendship “65 million years in the making,” and it’s Marvel team-up like none-other.
This week Marvel announced Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur #1, a brand-new ongoing series launching this fall as part of All-New, All-Different Marvel. The new original series is from the creative team of Amy Reeder, Brandon Montclaire and Natacha Bustos.
In the new series Marvel fans will meet Lunella Lafayette, pre-teen super genius who just wants to change the world and help those in need. Possessing latent Inhuman DNA, Lunella’s unsure of what her strange future might hold. But when she stumbles on ancient Kree technology, things are about to get a whole lot stranger.
After opening a doorway to the prehistoric past, her life is turned upside down as she comes face-to-face with a towering Jurassic giant known only as DEVIL DINOSAUR. That’s not all though, it turns out that Devil Dinosaur is not alone. Out of the portal and in to the Marvel Universe emerge the Killer-Folk – an ancient tribe of beings who will stop at nothing to acquire the alien technology.
“Something that’s the hallmark of a Marvel Hero is that they’re gifted with a power they may see as a curse. Their hero’s journey is to discover how to use it to help others,” says series Editor Mark Paniccia. “Lunella is a little genius with grand plans on going to big schools, but she’s got an Inhuman gene, unpredictable alien DNA inside that – once triggered – could take her life in a wildly different direction. She’s determined to control that change. She’s going to need to grow up really fast to survive in the new Marvel Universe…luckily she will have Devil Dinosaur at her side.”
Lunella’s about to learn the hard way that it’ll take more than just big brains to save the world. This unlikely duo are many things, but together, they’re the unstoppable Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur. Fans ca expect MOON GIRL & DEVIL DINOSAUR #1 to hit comic shops and digital devices this November.
MOON GIRL & DEVIL DINOSAUR #1 was written by Amy Reeder & Brandon Montclare, with art by Natacha Bustos and the cover was done by AMY REEDER.
