Marvel Rising is a media franchise that consists of a number of TV shorts and specials, the made-for-TV film Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors, and two comic books. The movie focuses on bringing together some of Marvel’s younger heroes such as Ms. Marvel and Squirrel Girl into a new Secret Warriors team.
The first Secret Warriors comic book series came out in 2009 and the second Secret Warriors comic book series (with new team members) came out in 2017.
Learn more about your favorite characters from the show by reading the comics they star in! Some characters feature in their own solo series, while others are recurring characters in others’ solo series, in ensemble titles, or in special event series.
Below are some recommended starting points for each character. This list is not a comprehensive account of every appearance by a character, but some suggestions for where a new reader could begin. Keep in mind that comics are written with the understanding that not every reader is familiar with every story. Starting a new comic can feel overwhelming, but effective writers give readers enough background knowledge for them to understand what is happening in the current issue.
These comics were created as media tie-ins for the Marvel Rising show. They can be read as standalones.
