The characters of Marvel's new animated franchise Marvel Rising have received full descriptions and character models ahead of the initiative's six digital shorts and animated film which will arrive later this year.
Assembling as the Secret Warriors, the team is comprised of Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, Inferno, Squirrel Girl, Quake, America Chavez, Patriot, Lockjaw, and Gwen Stacy who will use the new codename Ghost Spider.
Here are the character models, along with Marvel's descriptions:
"Gwen Stacy aka Ghost-Spider (formerly Spider Gwen) voiced by Dove Cameron (Descendants, Hairspray Live) – a free spirited teen who found her calling to be a super hero after being bitten by a radioactive spider and gaining spider-like powers. As Ghost-Spider, she aids those in need, but has to keep her alter-ego a secret from her father, Captain George Stacy, who sees Ghost-Spider as more of a menace than a hero."
"Daisy Johnson aka Quake voiced by Chloe Bennet (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Nashville) – a leading agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. whose tendency for rule-breaking gets her into trouble now and then. Daisy befriends the young group of heroes and through them discovers how to become a better leader. She can generate powerful vibrational waves, which produce effects similar to earthquakes."
"Dante Pertuz aka Inferno voiced by Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf, Lincoln Heights) – a brooding, dark loner on the run. Dante has the power of pyrokinesis, which makes him capable of generating flames – however, he is not fully in control of his fiery abilities. It’s a thin line between good guy and villain for the unpredictable Inferno."
"Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel voiced by Kathreen Khavari (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble, Big Little Lies) – a devoted fan of Super Heroes, especially of her mentor Captain Marvel; she is determined that she too can be a great hero! If only she’d be taken seriously. Kamala is equipped with metamorphic powers that allow her to stretch, enlarge, or shrink her overall size, parts of her body, or alter her physical appearance. She is especially fond of 'embiggening' her fists."
"Doreen Green aka Squirrel Girl voiced by Milana Vayntrub (Marvel’s New Warriors, This Is Us) – the uber-positive, hilarious best friend and teammate of Ms. Marvel. With advanced computer skills, enhanced strength, agility, durability, and senses of a squirrel, Doreen (along with her squirrel partner, Tippy Toe!), is primed and ready to become a successful hero."
"America Chavez voiced by Cierra Ramirez (The Fosters, The Secret Life of an America Teenager) – a strong, independent young hero whose painful past drives her to reject leadership and remain a loner. America’s powers include superhuman strength, speed, and durability, plus the ability to fly."
"Rayshaun Lucas aka Patriot voiced by Kamil McFadden (K.C. Undercover, Grown Ups 2) – a natural born leader who is quick to leap into action to impress his colleagues at S.H.I.E.L.D. Rayshaun strives to live up to Captain America’s legacy with integrity, honesty, and order above all. His skills include heightened strength, speed, stamina, and durability."
"Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel voiced by Kim Raver (Grey’s Anatomy, 24) – a bold leader who doesn’t sugar-coat and is guided by a strong sense of duty and honor. She’s the ultimate inspiration for our band of misfit heroes. She is equipped with superhuman strength, can fly at high speeds, and can project intense energy blasts."
"Lockjaw and Tippy Toe are voiced by Dee Bradley Baker (Star Wars Rebels, Gravity Falls). Two lovable and heroic sidekicks: Lockjaw is Kamala’s trusty, teleporting mutt and Tippy Toe is Doreen’s partner in crime and best squirrel friend."
Marvel Rising does not have a specific release date for either its digital shorts or feature-length film.
