"No matter how hard we try, our name is synonymous with Stamford, Connecticut. And in a world with the Avengers, I'm not sure there's a place for us."
— Justice

The New Warriors (of Earth-616) was a team of teenage heroes assembled by Dwayne Taylor to help him avenge his parent's death. In recent years the team has tried to come out of the shadows of other famous superhero teams in order to prove that they can be just as good as the adult heroes.

The New Warriors originally used a van to travel the United States along with a TV crew. However, historically, Dwayne owned a helicopter, piloted by Sprocket and Nova had a detachable hover-pod from his Xandar battleship orbiting Earth.


Each members personal arsenal.


  • The original incarnation of the New Warriors was considered ground-breaking in that it touched on many issues not normally dealt with in comics. Marvel Boy was domestically abused by his mutant-hating father for years, and one day he lashed out and accidentally killed his father with his telekinetic powers. (He went to prison for it, but was eventually given an early parole, and returned to the team as Justice). Firestar and Justice were planning on getting married and having children, but discovered that Firestar's microwave powers were causing her to become sterile. Namorita once drunkenly slept with a man who turned out to be the leader of the Poison Memories gang, who stole the Warriors' personal information and launched an assault on their families. The Poison Memories shot and almost killed Firestar's father, cut off of Nova's brother's fingers off, and murdered Rage's grandmother, which led Rage to kill the gang's leader in cold blood. Firestar's friend was once raped by a boy at a party, and Firestar almost castrated him in anger.


  • Marvel originally planned to spin off the "New New Warriors" incarnation of the team from the "Time & Time Again" crossover into a new book. However, sales diminished, and after the original Warriors were rescued, the "New" New Warriors mostly returned to their solo heroing.
  • Speedball is the only character to have been a member throughout the team's entire tenure, though only if one counts that he was temporarily replaced by someone assuming his identity. He even survived the Stamford blast that started the Civil War. Out of all the members, only three have been members in each of the team's series: Speedball, Nova, and Namorita/Kymaera, though one could count Night Thrasher, who was not a member in Vol. 2 until the last page of the last issue.
  • An attempt to relaunch the team's book in 2002 with the characters of Speedball, Rage, Bolt, Turbo and the X-Men characters Skids and Jubilee as college students/super heroes fell through due to legal problems. Coincidentally, Jubilee would later join the group under the guise of Wondra after losing her own mutant powers after the de-powering of 98% of the worlds mutant population by the Scarlet Witch during House of M.
  • Slapstick and Ultragirl were never physically shown as members of the New Warriors, but were named as members off-panel in the pages of the She-Hulk comics.
