A first-ever Chinese superhero comic book is about to be created by the US comic-book publishing giant Marvel in association with a Beijing-based company.
Marvel, which is owned by Disney, is hugely popular for creating iconic superheroes such as, Spiderman, Captain America, the X-Men, the Avengers and many more.
The Chinese company NetEase has signed an agreement with Marvel for this task. The name of the superhero has not been announced yet.
Marvel has previously experimented with unconventional superheroes, such as Kamala Khan, Karma, Jubilee, and so on. But apart from Kamala Khan aka Ms Marvel, none of them has actually been able to land an independent comic-book series dedicated to them.
