Rob Liefeld Gets Woke, Goes For Broke With A Female Shatterstar

Rob Liefeld will be introducing Shatterstorm, a female take on Mojoworld's Shatterstar in the upcoming Deadpool: Badder Blood #2.

Rob Liefeld is writing and drawing the upcoming Deadpool: Badder Blood series, a sequel to his graphic novel from 2017, Deadpool: Bad Blood. And with issue 2 he will be introducing Shatterstorm, a female take on Mojoworld's Shatterstar. Though, as Liefeld tells Comic Book, "Shatterstorm is her own woman entirely and not a derivative. Shatterstorm hails from Mojoworld and was born and bred to fight in the same Arena Games that forged Shatterstar, a legend among all Gladiators in the Mojoverse. With a contract on Deadpool's head, the mercenary Shatterstorm is looking to hit some paydirt." She will make a first cover appearance on Rob Liefeld's variant cover of Deadpool: Badder Blood #2

We will also see the debut of his newly designed group of mercenaries, The 5, which were originally created for his original run on New Mutants and X-Force thirty-five years ago, but never made it to print. "A group of mercenaries known as The 5, initially created for my original New Mutants/X-Force run, appear throughout the series as well. They pop in for a quick appearance in Deadpool: Badder Blood #1, alongside Shatterstorm who takes center stage in issue #2! Lots of new faces and characters throughout the series, which is the most fun I've ever had crafting a comic book. Excited to get this in readers hands! Freed from the Gladiator Pits of the Arena Games, SHATTERSTORM arrives as Mojoworld's deadliest assassin. Does Deadpool stand a chance?"
