Three new creators have been added to Marvel Comics' female superhero-focused Fearless anthology series. Alyssa Wong, Alti Firmansyah, and Marguerite Sauvage will all contribute to upcoming issues of Fearless.

Wong and Firmansyah will join Fearless #3 with a Jubilee-centric story, while Sauvage will draw a story by previously-announced writer Trina Robbins for #4.

"I'm stoked to be part of Fearless!," said Wong in a statement (via Marvel.com). "I'm writing a story about teenage Jubilee, social media, and being open about your identity, and how that contrasts with the experiences of older mutants having to hide their powers."

"Jubilee is an Asian-American icon, and she's a really fun character with bright, fun powers," Wong continued. "I'm excited to have the chance to write her for this anthology, and to work on this story with Alti! I love that Fearless is a celebration of our work and the value, richness, and power that our stories bring to the table."

“We all went through adolescence - periods of searching for self-identity and how sometimes we’re not ashamed to brag about it in public," added Firmansyah. "Through Jubilee's expressions and actions, I got the chance to draw that particular teenage phase in Fearless #3. How proud and amazed I am to be involved in this amazing Marvel 'herstory' moment and to be among great women in comic industry.”

Fearless #3 is due out September 25, followed by Fearless #4 on October 23.
