Marvel Comics has announced Patsy Walker, a.k.a. Hellcat!, a new series from writer Kate Leth and artist Brittney Williams.
Patsy Walker started off as one half of Marvel’s version of Betty and Veronica in 1944, but was reintroduced as a supernatural superhero in the 1970s. Since then, she’s earned her Avengers ID card, spent time as a member of the Defenders, and been a close ally of Jessica Jones and She-Hulk.
“Kate and Brittney are cooking up a series here that’s like a superhero version of Trainwreck or Broad City — a comedic and action-packed story about a woman figuring out her life,” series editor Wil Moss tells Yahoo. “Except Abbi and Ilana have never had to deal with crime waves, a supervillain temp agency, or an ex who is literally the son of Satan.”

Patsy Walker will also be making an appearance in the Netflix series Marvel’s Jessica Jones, played by Rachael Taylor.
