With the popularity of Fifty Shades of Gray and similar novels showing no signs of dissipating, Marvel Comics announced last week that they will jump into the field of romantic literature.
Marvel is partnering with Hyperion to publish two action and adventure romance novels featuring the popular super-heroines Rogue and She-Hulk. Both Hyperion and Marvel are owned by Disney.
In a press release, the company says the “novels showcase strong, smart heroines seeking happiness and love while battling cosmic evil.”
The She-Hulk Diaries focuses on Jennifer Walters (aka She-Hulk), who is trying to balance climbing the corporate ladder during the day with battling super villains at 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.”
Rogue Touch centers on the popular X-Man heroine, who can absorb other heroes’ powers through touch. After she accidently puts her boyfriend in a coma, Rogue runs away from home. She then meets the “handsome and otherwordly Jame and sparks fly.”
Rogue finds herself caught between her superpowers and “the only man alive who seems to truly understand her.”
Hyperion will publish both novels in June.
