But it was not to be, In the end, half way through, Mashable got the story, that A-Force was a new all-female superhero team by G Willow Wilson, launching as part of Secret Wars after all the male Avengers have gone away and been disbanded….
It appears that, despite the hype, the story got bumped on The View, Marvel panicked a little and shoved it out through Mashable. Which isn't quite The View. Here's how it went down…
Why does Marvel think I watch the View? Dear Marvel, my mom would only buy a comic if Oprah endorsed it. You missed that chance. — Stephanie Gotobed (@bunnymeowmeow) February 6, 2015

Wait, did The View even announce the Marvel thing? I turned it on when the press release said to and never heard. — Matthew Jackson (@awalrusdarkly) February 6, 2015
@Marvel ya made me watch The View. I though we were friends

Did Marvel just trick its fans into watching The View? — Scott Stamper ⚡️ (@DerfelMacklin) February 6, 2015
So did Marvel bother to inform anyone before the View started that they wouldn't be announcing anything on their show?

The View didn't even announce Marvel's A-FORCE! WHAT?! — richard brady (@richardbrady_) February 6, 2015
The most hilarious part about Marvel 's A Force announcement is that they thought anyone who watches The View would give a shit.

The worst part of Disney's acquisition of Marvel: Now 'The View' is my #1 trending topic on Twitter. — Chris of ComicBookDB (@comicbookdb) February 6, 2015

So just so everyone knows I just watched a full hour of The View for no reason. Someone at Marvel owes me money. — Samquisitor (@SamMaggs) February 6, 2015
I just sat through The View thinking there was going to be a @Marvel announcement! So, basically I tortured myself for no reason.

The greatest trick the Marvel ever pulled was convincing needs to watch The View

Remember though, Marvel and ABC are all part of a big happy Disney family, so a few extra viewers to The View is probably a result. Just the next time Marvel announce an announcement somewhere, expect people to remember The Boy Who Cried The View…
