Can’t get enough of Marvel’s ‘The Unstoppable Wasp‘? While the character isn’t set to grace the big or small screen in a live-action adaptation quite yet, she will be hitting print work outside of a comic book. Marvel has announced that Nadia Van Dyne will have a new adventure in a Young Adult novel penned by Sam Maggs (‘Marvel Fearless and Fantastic! Female Super Heroes Save the World’,’The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy: A Handbook for Girl Geeks’).
This Marvel Press release will follow what we’ve read in Jeremy Whitley‘s comics as we follow Nadia as a superhero, an inventor, and her genius friends who are part of G.I.R.L. (Genius In action Research Labs.)
According to Maggs, “I am thrilled and so honored to be taking the Unstoppable Wasp on her next adventure with Marvel Press. 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.”
Here is the official synopsis for ‘The Unstoppable Wasp’:
Nadia Van Dyne is new to this. New to being a Super Hero, new to being a real friend and stepdaughter (to one of the founding Avengers, no less), new to running her own lab, and new to being her own person, far, far away from the clutches of the Red Room-the infamous brainwashing/assassin-training facility. She’s adjusting well to all of this newness, channeling her energy into being a good friend, a good scientist, and a good Super Hero. It’s taking a toll, though, and Nadia’s finding that there are never quite enough hours in a day. So, when she’s gifted a virtual assistant powered by the most cutting-edge A.I. technology that the world has to offer, Nadia jumps at the opportunity to “do less, experience more”-just like the advertisements say.
The device works-really works. Nadia has more time to pursue her passion projects and to focus on new discoveries. But it’s never quite that simple, and not everything is as it seems. This thrilling adventure finds Nadia confronting her past as she tries to shape her future, and learning that sometimes the best way to effect big change is to think small-maybe even super small, Unstoppable Wasp-style. She’ll need the help of her genius G.I.R.L. (Genius In action Research Labs) squad and found family to save herself and (not to be too dramatic) the entire world as we know it. Along the way, Nadia discovers that when she teams up with the people who love her the most, they’re totally Unstoppable. Just another day in the life of your way, way above average teenage Super Hero.
Speaking of G.I.R.L., Maggs teases that “with her brilliant and diverse G.I.R.L. squad by her side, there’s nothing Nadia can’t do. Or is there!?! Guess you’ll have to pick up the novel to find out…”
I’m sure we can all guess that having a virtual assistant won’t be as straightforward as Nadia hopes. We’ve all seen how Tony Stark AI have tended to end up corrupted, failed over time, or be hacked throughout the years.
