Marvel is going after the hipster market, using the "Mighty" name to ironically mean "lackluster."
Marvel revealed the full lineup of its Mighty team today with the last in a series of teasers that require the use of
a secret decoder ring Marvel's AR app to figure out. Joining the team of Luke Cage, Doctor Spiderpuss, She-Hulk, and Adam the Blue Marvel (who?) are Avengers Academy's White Tiger and Power Man. No, not Luke Cage, Power Man. The new Power Man. So the team has two Power Mans (Power Men?). This is very exciting news that ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ...
Wha? Huh? Sorry, we must have fallen asleep from all the excitement there. The Mighty covers the team left behind on Earth while The Avengers head to space for the next super-mega-crossover event, Infinity, in September, which leaves plenty of time for Marvel to add some 3D hologram covers to have a chance of competing with DC's Villains Month.
CBR has the teaser before anyone else, dispelling rumors that the comic book news site is on the payroll of DC's marketing department. Clearly, that was an unfounded accusation. They're obviously willing to be in a sycophantic relationship that involves unlimited praise for Big Two comics in exchange for exclusive or early access to "news" to ensure high web traffic with both big corporate comics publishers.
Here's the teaser:
Nothing Lasts Forever – Who Is MIGHTY?
From the battlefields of Infinity comes a new team to protect Earth! With the Avengers light-years away in space, contending with the Builders, and Thanos’ marauders ransacking the Earth, doing as they please - who will stand in defense of mankind?
