Marvel’s Young Avengers Stars Headline New Webtoon-Style Series

Hulking & Wiccan is the newest Infinity Comic exclusive to Marvel Unlimited, focusing on the relationship between the famous Young Avengers.

Hulkling and Wiccan are starring in a 4-part series exclusively available as an Infinity Comic on Marvel Unlimited.

Releasing weekly on Mondays and written by Josh Trujillo, illustrated by Jodi Nishijima and colored by Matt Milla, Hulkling & Wiccan explores the lives of the two young heroes as they investigate what might have happened if they hadn’t fallen in love.

“Hulkling & Wiccan have found their happy ending at last…or have they?” a description for the series reads. “When a magical artifact shows them the paths not taken in life and love, will Billy and Teddy find their way back to each other? Will they even want to?”

Hulkling and Wiccan, also known by their regular names of Teddy Altman and Billy Kaplan, are arguably Marvel’s highest-profile LGBTQ+ couple, having married each other in 2020’s Empyre #4. The pair were created by writer Allan Heinberg and artist Jim Cheung for the Young Avengers series in 2005, and have served on multiple superhero teams, including the Young Avengers, the New Avengers and Strikeforce. Both also have famous, high profile lineages — Hulkling is the son of the original Captain Mar-Vell and the Skrull princess Anelle, while Wiccan is the reincarnated son of Scarlet Witch and Vision.

Hulkling & Wiccan joins several other Infinity Comics launched in September by Marvel for their digital subscription service. The various series, which include titles like X-Men Unlimited, Giant-Size Little Marvels and Venom/Carnage, are full-screen, high-resolution comics designed to take advantage of the vertical alignment of a phone or tablet.

“The goal for Marvel Unlimited has always been to provide the best digital comics experience for our fans by giving them direct access to the unmatched depth, breadth and vibrancy of Marvel’s characters and stories,” Marvel Entertainment President Dan Buckley said at the time of the Infinity Comics initiative launch. “With this relaunch, we’re bringing fans an even richer experience with Marvel stories designed in a dynamic vertical format for the first time. Our new Infinity Comics give our creators a chance to tell stories in entirely new ways, and we’re looking forward to connecting our fans to those stories in the months to come.”

Marvel is not the only mainstream comic book company moving to produce digital series similar to those available on the popular Webtoon app. DC’s slice-of-life series, Batman: Wayne Family Adventures, is one of the most popular comics on Webtoon, with a readership surpassing that of regular Batman titles. Meanwhile, Archie Comics launched Big Ethel Energy on Sept. 21, focusing on the Riverdale character Big Ethel.
