Power Pack Synopsis
Power Pack is a team of fictional child superheroes in the Marvel Comics universe. They were created by writer Louise Simonson and artist June Brigman, and first appeared in their own comic book series in 1984. The series lasted 62 issues. The characters have since appeared sporadically in other books.
The Pack is noteworthy for being the first team of preteen superheroes in the Marvel Universe, and the first in comics to operate without adult supervision. The series was one of the first mainstream Marvel hits supplied through the then-developing Direct Market, with regular sales estimated in the range of 90-97,000 per month - considered above average sales for the time. The title retains a loyal cult following to this day, and in 2005 was relaunched as a title aimed at younger readers (see below) - though this was eventually (though not initially) decided to be a separate continuity from the original series.
