Marvel Comics heroines Rogue and the She-Hulk will be the stars of a pair of upcoming prose novels from publisher Hyperion Books, according to a statement from Marvel. According to Marvel, "Scheduled for release in June, both novels showcase strong, smart heroines seeking happiness and love while battling cosmic evil." Hyperion's Editor-in-Chief Elisabeth Dyssegaard said, "Marvel has had tremendous success with recent hit movies and we think it's a great time to explore what happens to super heroines when they are dropped into traditional women's novels." "It's exciting to see Hyperion bring two of our most beloved female super heroes, Rogue and She-Hulk, to life in ways you've never seen before," said Ruwan Jayatilleke, Associate Publishers/SVP, Marvel Entertainment.  "Whether you're a long time fan of Marvel or new to our Super Heroes, these novels deliver exciting stories that will capture your imagination." At present, neither character has her own solo comic book series. Of course, there's a general interest in both characters outside of comics right now; there's speculation that Rogue might appear in the forthcoming Days of Future Past, and of course Rizzoli & Isles star Angie Harmon recently tweeted about her desire to portray She-Hulk on screen. She-Hulk, Marvel's much-beloved comic book heroine who shares her cousin Bruce Banner's ability to transform into a hero of incredible power, comes to life in a page-turning novel.  In The She-Hulk Diaries, Jennifer Walters, aka She Hulk, juggles climbing the corporate ladder by day and battling villains and saving the world by night—all while trying to navigate the dating world to find a Mr. Right who might not mind a sometimes-very big and green girlfriend. The second novel, Rogue Touch, features one of the most popular X-Men characters, Rogue, a young woman trying to navigate the challenges of everyday life and romance—except that her touch is deadly.  After accidentally putting her first boyfriend in a coma, she runs away from home where, she meets the handsome and otherworldly James and sparks fly. Like Rogue, however, James' life is hardly simple. To elude his mysterious and dangerous family, James shaves his head, dons all black. Stealing a car, they head out on the highway and eventually, Rogue has to decide whether she will unleash her devastating powers in order to save the only man alive who seems to truly understand her.
