I remember the first time I read a team up in comics. It felt cool whenever your favorite characters would get together. This is initially what drew me to the animated series Spiderman and His Amazing Friendsas a kid. Peter’s interactions with the Firestar and Iceman made the series so entertaining and fun.
I did not know it then but it was giving me the foundation of how it is to work within a team. It definitely helped me in organized sports, knowing that you have to work with each other to win. This absolutely made it crystal clear when I joined the military, as we all had our part. In Midnight Suns #1, a new team is formed to face a very evil threat.
We’re taken to a town called Centerville, where a young woman that goes by the name of Mary Beth Zoric, is being threatened with a gun, for practicing Black Magic. We are also taken to the Strange Academy, where we meet Zoe Laveau, is a new student at the school, who is having a hard time adjusting, but right when it looks like she will be just fine, she has a dark vision, one that looks to change her whole life. Blade summons the Midnight Suns, as Nico Magik saw the same vision as Zoe. They take it as a harbinger of evil to come. By the issue’s end, they fend off an attack by a hoard of demons but find an unlikely foe in Dr. Doom.
Overall, Midnight Suns #1 is a fun issue but somewhat predictable. The story by Sacks is serviceable. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, it’s a fine team up but not one which I can exactly say I am compelled to continue.

Kabam’s mobile fighter MARVEL Contest of Champions has debuted all-new content themed after the upcoming Marvel Studios film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The Champion Reveal trailer introduces two new Champions, inspired by the Marvel films, coming to the popular mobile fighter – Shuri [Avengers: Infinity War] and Attuma [Black Panther: Wakanda Forever]. With over 200 Champions in The Contest, players can also add other legendary Marvel characters to their roster from the Black Panther universe including a visually updated Black Panther, Killmonger and more!
Here is a quick look at what The Contest has in store this coming month:
The plague of Galactus continues to consume The Battlerealm! The hungry eyes of the World Eaters have turned to Wakanda. Shuri has requested the aid of the Summoner in an important diplomatic task. They will need to convince Namor to open his gates to the woes of Wakanda, but the deadly Attuma may have other plans for these new arrivals. It’s up to the Summoner and Shuri to save both their homes from becoming lost in a SEA OF TROUBLES!
Princess of Wakanda and head of the Wakandan Design Group, Shuri’s genius and ingenuity has been the driving force behind much of Wakanda’s modern technical superiority. Not one for getting hung up on tradition or ceremony, Shuri is constantly pushing the limits of vibranium technology and was the mind behind the advanced suits used by her brother T’Challa, the Black Panther.
Attuma is a stalwart protector of Talokan, aiding king Namor in protecting its people from threats below and above. Attuma is proud and strong, with a knack for grasping opportunity, and the iron will to never fully surrender, even when his plans go awry. Now, with Talokan under threat from surface dwellers, Attuma will resort to any means necessary to defend his people and culture, even if those he supports do not agree with his methods.
Set your reminders! Shuri will arrive in-game Nov. 10 and Attuma on Dec. 1. In the meantime, fans can now check out Shuri and Attuma in the all-new Champion Trailer – Sea Of Troubles – and catch up on The Battlerealm with character Deep Dive and Special Moves content on the official MARVEL Contest of Champions YouTube channel.
