Doreen's a people person. Maybe that's a secondary mutation.Sofia Wylie actually looks like Riri from the comics a little .
Isn't Squirrel Girl everyone's bestie ?
"Marvel Rising: Battle of the Bands" spotlights Dove Cameron (“Descendants 3”) as Ghost-Spider in a 22-minute animated special. On the day of Gwen’s “Battle of the Bands” competition, mysterious attacks force her and the Secret Warriors to investigate. Can they save the city and get Gwen to the concert on time?
"Marvel Rising: Operation Shuri" will introduce the fan-favorite character Shuri, voiced by Daisy Lightfoot (“Marvel Avengers: Black Panther’s Quest”) to the Marvel Rising universe in a 22-minute animated special. The lives of the Secret Warriors are turned upside down when faced with their latest mission: hang out with Shuri, the Crown Princess of Wakanda, and show her what it’s like to be an ordinary teenager. But nothing’s ordinary when you’re dealing with one of the smartest and most famous people on the planet.
"Marvel Rising: Playing With Fire" will star Tyler Posey (“Teen Wolf”) as Inferno. In this 44-minute special, Inferno's powers are stolen by a young and powerful villain and it's up to the Secret Warriors to defeat their new foe and help their friend. But does Inferno even WANT his powers back? Meanwhile, America Chavez, voiced by Cierra Ramirez (“Good Trouble”), learns a lesson about friendship and family from teammate Ms. Marvel.

Okay, I'm extra hyped now.
That "No Comment" on the X-Men question ...
"Heart of Iron" looks cool .
You know something, the way these shorts are being done is how Comixology's Guided View mode should be done (minus the voice actors), which is basically a combo of motion comics and the Guided View mode.
Got to fit in that Black Panther tie-in .The Shuri one is interesting. I'm actually surprised to see them using her since I'd have thought her personality as the whole snarky tech genius might overlap with Ironheart.
Nrama: Speaking of Ghost-Spider, what can you tell us about Marvel Rising? What’s coming up in that growing franchise?
Lane: We recently announced the next batch of specials. It kicks off with “Battle of the Bands,” a 22-minute special focused on Ghost-Spider and Gwen, and the duality of her life that’s stretching her way too thin. She’s trying to balance her Secret Warriors life with her friends, and maintain them both, and as we’ve seen throughout her episodes, it’s a lot for her to handle.
We also take the opportunity to create a spoiler and a villain in a kind of dark reflection of Ghost-Spider. This is a villain – sometimes a hero – who was created in the 1970s. I can’t say more than that, but it’s a very cool contrast. And it’s a story full of pop music, which is part of the Marvel Rising DNA, but we go heavy on it here.
And then after that, the next special is “Operation: Shuri”. It’s so fascinating to watch the characters, both individually and as a group, interact with someone like Shuri. They’re all just regular kids, trying to make their way and learn their powers, and be their best selves – but then they’re faced with this princess who is also a super-genius who has so much confidence because she’s been raised her whole life as the heir to the throne.
Then there’s “Playing With Fire”, a very personal story about Inferno and America each longing to find the families that they lost, and their journey to make their way in the world without their families and make a new family along the way.
In particular, with America we see her with Ms. Marvel, who she doesn’t typically get along with, meeting Ms. Marvel’s family and how that impacts her.
It really goes deeper into Inferno’s backstory though, and we get to know him a lot better.
