Nadia Van Dyne, the high-flying superhero known as the Wasp, broke her way into comics a few years ago starring with the Avengers, The Champions and more while also holding down her very own solo series twice. While her comic solo adventures have come to an end (again) for the time being, that isn’t stopping the unstoppable Wasp.
As announced by Marvel, Nadia will dive into a brand new adventure for a new Young Adult novel from writer Sam Maggs in 2020 through Marvel Press. This novel will pick up many of the aspects of the comics series (from Jeremy Whitley, Gurihiru & more) including her genius friends from G.I.R.L. (Genius In action Research Labs).
“I am thrilled and so honored to be taking the Unstoppable Wasp on her next adventure with Marvel Press,” Maggs said. “Nadia Van Dyne’s scientific genius is matched only by her boundless optimism; she’s an incredible role model and exactly the kind of Super Hero I think we need right now.”
The book synopsis is:
In this thrilling new adventure, Nadia is struggling with something we’re all very familiar with – not having enough time to do all the things we want to do. Plus, she’s new to all of this. New to being a Super Hero. New to being a real friend. New to being a stepdaughter (to one of the founding Avengers, no less). New to running her own lab. And new to being her own person, far away from the clutches of the Red Room. Handling all this newness in stride, Nadia is thankfully gifted a virtual assistant, powered by the most cutting-edge technology the world has to offer, that allows her the opportunity to “do less, experience more.”With this device, Nadia has found the time to pursue her passion projects, focus on new discoveries, and chase down personal growth. However, our girl learns it’s never that simple, and not everything is as it seems. Sometimes the best way to effect big change is to think small – maybe even super small, Unstoppable Wasp-style. With the help of her G.I.R.L. squad and found family, she’s going to save herself and the entire world as we know it, NBD. Just another day in the life of your way, way above average teenage Super Hero.
The book is available for pre-order, and arrives on May 26, 2020.
