    Default Power Pack Appreciation 2021

    The all purpose thread to discuss all things related to the Power Pack, from fan art to actual art to fan fiction.


    In 1984, Louise Simonson and June Brigman created the Power Pack. Teen heroes weren't unheard of at the time, even at Marvel. We've had teen hero teams in the form of the X-Men, the New Mutants, and even leading solo books like Spider-Man. Power Pack was the first team to be composed entirely of pre-teen superheroes.

    The kids fought evil aliens, the Marauders in an event called Mutant Massacre, fought a guy trying to sell a girl's soul to a demon, fought actual demons, and of course drug dealers.



    Power Pack is split between its two famous universes, the classic 616 and the All-Ages Power Pack. The former is where the kids have grown up (as much as the writers will allow) while the latter is where they still stay kids.

    Power Pack 616 Runs

    Power Pack Vol 1 (1984)
    Power Pack Vol 2 (2000)
    Power Pack Grow Up! (2019)
    Power Pack Vol 4 (2021)


    Power Pack All Ages Runs

    Power Pack Vol 3 (2005)
    Power Pack: Day One
    Spider-Man and Power Pack
    X-Men and Power Pack
    Hulk and Power Pack
    Skrulls vs. Power Pack
    Avengers and Power Pack Assemble!
    Fantastic Four and Power Pack
    Wolverine and Power Pack
    Thor and the Warriors Four

    I'm still waiting for the animated series, prose novels and live action TV or film series.

    Yeah, I'm leaning towards an animated series. Kids grow up way too fast.

    I honestly do want to see an issue dedicated to Jack's superhero celebrity endeavors. It's not too often that we do see the super celebrity card be played on superhuman children.

    Issue #2.

    Alex and Julie? Please? Don’t they see this pretty boy Aether Agent is exploiting them. This is not mentoring. Mentoring is sitting them down and giving them advice and training them to prefect their powers, things Alex and Julie haven’t thought of yet. This guy Aether (The Wizard) should have rung alarm bells.

    When they talked about the mentor thing, they felt they didn't need that at this point in their career, which is why Aether's alternative was preferable.

    That, and...it beats getting arrested.

    Has this been specified by Marvel? IIRC, Slott's She-Hulk run referenced the all-ages Power Pack minis.

    Yes, the all-ages books have their own reality number (Earth-5631) and the kids are younger than they are currently in 616 but slightly older than when they started. This is why Gurihiru used different character designs in the last one-shot, Power Pack: Grow Up, than they did in the all-ages minis, because that (which they drew the second story of) was set in 616 (albeit in the past).

    Don't forget Jennifer can break the fourth wall.

    Slott has ignored the nature of canon in favor of whatever he wants in the past, Spider-Verse. Plus, She-Hulk has some 4th wall shenanigans to wave that away.

    Anyone know why the first issue of the New series sold out? Diamond shorted the online retailer i buy from and couldn't replace it because it ran out of stock, mycomicshop doesn't have it and neither do two LCS in my area.

    Must've been underordered. And with the pandemic happening causing the book to be delayed for months, maybe shops didn't realise until final order cut-off had long passed?
