Freeform’s New Warriors have been releaved and the revelation is definitely going to cause debate and discussion in the geek world. According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog, the network released the lineup of the straight to series comedy today along with custom art of the team itself. Let’s take a look at the upcoming roster.

Here is the roster for the show with the character names, creators and Freeform’s description of the characters.

Squirrel Girl

squirrelgirl.0

Created by Steve Ditko and Will Murray

Real Name: Doreen Allene Green

Powers: Superhuman strength, agility and senses. A prehensile tail. Razor sharp claws and the ability to speak to squirrels.

Doreen is a totally empowered fangirl. She is a natural leader – confident and tough, but not innocent. Doreen is bouncy and energetic, and her greatest quality is her optimism … She has faith in others and inspires people to believe in themselves. She also takes her pet squirrel, Tippy Toe, everywhere.

Mister Immortal

620181-mr_immortal_nelson01

Created by John Byrne

Real Name: Craig Hollis

Powers: Highly skilled acrobat. Mutant ability to resurrect from the dead.

The team troublemaker and lothario … Craig is kind of like “The Most Interesting Man Alive,” except he’s more cocky than confident and, at times, charmingly grumpy. Although Craig’s superpower seems amazing, he hasn’t made use of it at all – he’s lazy and figures if he has all the time in the world to learn how to fight, what’s the rush?

Night Thrasher

Dwayne_Taylor_(Earth-20051)_Marvel_Adventures_Spider-Man_Vol_1_27

Created by Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz

Real Name: Dwayne Taylor

Powers: Highly skilled martial artist and hacker. Immune to telepathic influence. Designed advanced body armor.

Dwayne is a local celebrity “hero” with his very own YouTube channel.  Brilliant, strong, noble and maybe a bit full of himself, Dwayne is a shameless self-promoter and entrepreneur. But he also deeply believes in justice – at least his version of it. Dwayne hides the fact that he comes from a really rich family because he’s afraid he’ll lose his street cred.

Speedball

Created by Tom DeFalco and Steve Ditko

Real Name: Robert “Robbie” Baldwin

Powers: Force field generation and ability to hurl balls of kinetic energy

Robbie grew up watching Quinjets take off from Avengers Tower and loves the idea of being a hero. He’s an impulsive and immature people-pleaser with a misplaced sense of confidence. Although you would think throwing kinetic balls of energy would be awesome and effective – his are completely out of control.

Microbe

Created by Zeb Wells and Skottie Young

Real Name: Zachary Smith Jr.

Powers: Possesses the ability to speak to germs, microbes and other microorganisms

Zack is a shy hypochondriac whose ability nearly makes him a telepath – the germs tell him where you’ve been, what you ate and who you hung out with.  It’s impossible to keep secrets around him.  He’s a big sweet guy the team takes under their wing, and they help him find and grow his own confidence.

Debrii

Debrii_Head

Created by Zeb Wells and Skottie Young

Real Name: Deborah Fields

Powers: Telekinesis

Deborah is proud, funny and quick-witted. Confidently out as a lesbian, Deborah has experienced deep loss in her personal life as a direct result of super “heroics.” She can take care of herself, or at least says she can. She’s the one who calls people on their BS and has no fear of putting her opinions out there.
