I think that's only five left…

Marvel.com have announced a new Secret Wars spinoff, Squadron Sinister, based on the parallel universe Justice League team, Squadron Supreme from Marc Guggenheim and Carlos Pacheco.

We had seen Supremists in the original covers, now it gets confirmed.

"Our lineup is Hyperion, Nighthawk, Whizzer, Doctor Spectrum, and Warrior Woman. So with the addition of Warrior Woman it's the same group of four guys that we first met way back when in AVENGERS #69 and #70."

"Our guys live in a province called Utopolis which they rule with an iron thumb. Basically the ruler of Battleworld gives the barons of the provinces pretty wide birth, but at the same time, if you screw up the repercussions are pretty severe."

"I'm a big fan of the SUPREME POWER versions that were done a number of years ago so I thought, 'Let's not hold off. Let's immediately have the Squadron Sinister fight the Supreme Power group.' It was fun to write them too because it was keeping with—this was back when Marvel was doing the MAX lineup and there was all this profanity they could use—so they're like cursing up a storm and they're coming into the fight very confidently.
