The Cast of Characters For The New Warriors TV Show

Marvel's New Warriors characters clockwise from the top: Zack Smith (Microbe), Dwayne Taylor (Night Thrasher), Craig Hollis (Mister Immortal),Doreen Green (Squirrel Girl), Deborah Fields (Debrii) and Robbie Baldwin (Speedball).
Doreen Green (Squirrel Girl)
Superpower: "The powers of a squirrel, the powers of a girl" (is acrobatic, strong, can fight, can talk to squirrels)
Doreen is a totally empowered fangirl. She is a natural leader – confident and tough, but not innocent. Doreen is bouncy and energetic, and her greatest quality is her optimism … She has faith in others and inspires people to believe in themselves. She also takes her pet squirrel, Tippy Toe, everywhere.

Craig Hollis (Mister Immortal)
Superpower: Cannot die. Ever. Maybe. So he says.
The team troublemaker and lothario … Craig is kind of like “The Most Interesting Man Alive,” except he’s more cocky than confident and, at times, charmingly grumpy. Although Craig’s superpower seems amazing, he hasn’t made use of it at all – he’s lazy and figures if he has all the time in the world to learn how to fight, what’s the rush? 

Dwayne Taylor (Night Thrasher)
Superpower: None
Dwayne is a local celebrity "hero" with his very own YouTube channel. Brilliant, strong, noble and maybe a bit full of himself, Dwayne is a shameless self-promoter and entrepreneur. But he also deeply believes in justice – at least his version of it. Dwayne hides the fact that he comes from a really rich family because he's afraid he'll lose his street cred.

Robbie Baldwin (Speedball)
Superpower: Can launch kinetic balls of energy
Robbie grew up watching Quinjets take off from Avengers Tower and loves the idea of being a hero. He’s an impulsive and immature people-pleaser with a misplaced sense of confidence. Although you would think throwing kinetic balls of energy would be awesome and effective – his are completely out of control.

Zack Smith (Microbe)
Superpower: Can talk to germs Zack is a shy hypochondriac whose ability nearly makes him a telepath – the germs tell him where you've been, what you ate and who you hung out with. It's impossible to keep secrets around him. He's a big sweet guy the team takes under their wing, and they help him find and grow his own confidence. 

Deborah Fields (Debrii)
Superpower: Low level telekinetic; trickster
Deborah is proud, funny and quick-witted. Confidently out as a lesbian, Deborah has experienced deep loss in her personal life as a direct result of super "heroics." She can take care of herself, or at least says she can. She's the one who calls people on their BS and has no fear of putting her opinions out there.

Marvel's New Warriors, co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios, has been ordered for ten episodes and will debut sometime in 2018. The series centers around six young adults with "powers and abilities on the opposite end of the spectrum of The Avengers" who aren't quite ready to be heroes.
Cougar Town's Kevin Biegel is on board as showrunner and executive producer. Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory, both of whom are executive producers on Marvel's The Punisher and Marvel's The Defenders, will serve as executive producers on Marvel's New Warriors as well.
