Marvel Introduces New Female Superhero in 'Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur'

Marvel is best known for their action-packed, in-your-face, explosive superhero movies. However unfortunate, the iconic comic company's legacy usually means exclusively male stars (save for Jessica Alba in the Fantastic Four, etc.) but that's about to a big way.

In 1978, Marvel published Devil Dinosaur, the tale of a red T-Rex and a caveman, Moon-Boy. It lived in obscurity but in a few months will get a total makeover: The boy is out, tween genius Lunella Lafayette, Moon Girl, is in.

Assistant Editor Emily Shaw told Entertainment Weekly all about the new development,

"Mark and I were talking about how whenever people come in with young kids, or even just for Mark’s own kids, we don’t have that many publications that we can give to people that have that broad reach. Generally, we’re skewing a little bit older with a lot of our titles and we wanted to create something that adults and kids could really love, like a Pixar feel. That’s where the tone jumped off for us.”

We can't wait! While you wait patiently for your new fave superhero to arrive, read all about the last massive Dino moment, Jurassic World.
