More Carol is never a bad thing.

Yesterday at NYCC, Marvel CCO Joe Quesada announced that Captain Marvel will be the newest superhero added to its young adult line-up. The character will be featured in a YA novel by husband-and-wife co-authors Shannon Hale and Dean Hale.

“Obviously we’re very excited and honored to be entrusted to tell a story with this beloved character,” Shannon said in a post on her Tumblr page. “If you aren’t familiar yet with Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel, you will be!” Hale’s previous works include the book Austenland, which was also made into a film.

Captain Marvel joins other characters who have already been adapted for the young adult audience, including She-Hulk and Black Widow.

In addition, it was announced today at NYCC’s Women of Marvel panel that Black Widow will be getting a SECOND young adult novel written by Margaret Stohl, a follow-up to her first book Black Widow: Forever Red which comes out on October 13th. (Stay tuned for a review on TMS!)

If this is what Marvel has in the pipeline for its prose market, then I am definitely all for it. More strong female characters in YA fiction!
