Marvel Has Its A-Force? All About A-Force!
While A-Force made its Marvel Comics debut in 2015, it has unofficially been a part of the MCU since 2019’s “Avengers: Endgame” when Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) soared across the screen with backup from Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Gamora (Zoe Saldaña), and several other super women. This scene made it feel as if A-Force was making its official way to the big screen sometime soon.
The A-Force is Marvel’s all-female superhero squad; however, it consists of different members than those seen in the “Endgame” moment. Nevertheless, it seems that the MCU could finally be inching towards an official A-Force movie thanks to the upcoming “The Marvels.” After all, the movie has one original A-Force member — Captain Marvel — and there’s nothing stopping her from assembling an A-List A-Force in the movie’s mid-credits scene.
Plus, considering that “The Marvels” boasts a roster of Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel (Iman Vellani), and Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), it’s causing some fans to want a bigger female-focused team. In other words, the idea for A-Force is alive and well in the Marvel fandom. Perhaps most auspicious, however, is the fact that several original A-Force members exist in the MCU at the moment.
One OG A-Force member has her own TV show
The first A-Force team to debut in Marvel Comics was certainly formidable. Comprising of She-Hulk, Dazzler, Medusa, Nico Minoru, and Singularity, the team took out villains with both flair and strength. The team later expanded its roster to include characters like Captain Marvel, but the core group always remained in some form. Luckily for A-Force fans, two — and possibly three — of those original members have already debuted on screen.
She-Hulk may currently be the most high-profile member of that original team thanks to her Disney+ show, “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.” Meanwhile, fans of Marvel’s “Runaways” also met Nico Minoru (Lyrica Okano), who stunned bad guys in the series with her sorcery and telepathy. On top of that, some fans have theorized that Love, Thor’s adoptive daughter from “Love and Thunder,” could be Singularity. After all, Love is the product of Eternity’s cosmic magic, just as Singularity is a cosmic being in the comics.
Whether or not Captain Marvel decides to assemble these characters in the mid-credits scene of “The Marvels,” the movie will surely demonstrate what an all-female superhero team can do in a two-hour runtime. Plus, given that Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie may make an appearance in the movie based on set photos (via The Direct), then the movie will surely inspire some more A-Force comparisons, just as “Avengers: Endgame” did.
