Marvel’s Voices: Pride #1 Debuts a New Mutant Hero!

As part of Marvel’s ongoing Marvel’s Voices series, readers everywhere will soon meet Escapade in Marvel’s Voices: Pride #1! Joining fellow LGBTQIA+ Marvel heroes this June, Escapade will debut in the book’s central story, written by acclaimed author Charlie Jane Anders and drawn by artist duo and Eisner-nominated cartoonists Ro Stein and Ted Brandt, with colors by Tamra Bonvillain.

Escapade, whose real name is Shela Sexton, is a trans mutant who can instantaneously switch physical locations with another person or trade any specific physical or abstract attribute such as possessions, organizational status, skills, superhuman powers, and even situations! Escapade is only able to maintain the power for a few hours at a time and must be within 7 feet of her target, and the more complex the switch, the higher the chance of a mishap. Luckily for Escapade, she has an invaluable partner at her side, her tech-savvy best friend Morgan Red, along with a tool belt containing an arsenal of stolen tools and devices. Together, Escapade and Morgan tear through the Marvel Universe as professional thieves, stealing from criminal and corrupt organizations…until a meeting with Emma Frost and Destiny changes the course of Escapade’s life forever.

The 20-page adventure in Marvel’s Voices: Pride #1 will introduce Escapade and reveal her career as a super hero/thief, as well as explore her life as a trans mutant in the Marvel Universe. Marvel’s Voices: Pride #1 only marks the beginning of Escapade’s saga as she becomes entangled with the X-Men and a deadly prophecy is unveiled in her future. Fans can look forward to Escapade’s return in the fall in a special story arc of New Mutants guest-written by Anders.

Meet Escapade and celebrate Pride Month with Marvel Comics when Marvel’s Voices: Pride #1 arrives on June 22!

What does it mean to be a hero? A magical sword? A prophecy? What does it mean to be a leader? A royal title? A kingdom to lead? Misty is a princess, but does that make her a damsel or a leader? Misty has a prince, but does that make him the hero?

Misty, princess of Beldora, is faced with a conundrum. Engaged to the buffoonish–if well-meaning–prince Pete, Misty finds herself suffocated by the expectations of royal life. Soon Misty notices a spy from the neighboring kingdom of Grimoire. A plot to steal the one sword that has the power to kill Lord Badlug, current ruler of Grimoire, who seeks to expand his empire by invading neighboring countries, is eventually revealed.

However, because of some magical red tape, Badlug can only invade another country once he becomes a member of the royal family. Misty makes the rash decision to attempt to end Lord Badlug but ends up losing the sword to his witch–and getting kidnapped in the process. Pete, in all his well-meaning goodness, sets out to rescue her.

Thrown into turmoil over the kidnapping of his daughter, Misty’s father vows to bring war to the land of Grimoire in an effort to save her before her wedding to Lord Badlug. Meantime, Misty attempts to rescue both herself and the country of Grimoire from Lord Badlug. Only then does she discover that simply disposing of Badlug won’t lead to an immediate happy ending.
