Stan Lee has a new superhero series for the next generation—one that features a multicultural hero in over his head, trying to master his own new powers while avoiding mercenaries who know just what to do with theirs.
The Zodiac Legacy: Convergence by Lee, Stuart Moore, and illustrator Andie Tong features a Chinese-American teenager named Steven, who is thrown into an “epic global chase” to unlock the mysterious powers of the Zodiac.
Want to find out how you’d stack up in Steven’s place? You can use the Zodiac Generator to find your own sign and description. Since it’s been a snowy weekend, I decided to check out what I would become in Lee’s new world. I’m apparently a snake and a villain in the series. Hmm…

Lee is, of course, the co-architect of Marvel’s Silver Age and the co-creator, with Jack Kirby, of the Fantastic Four and Spider-Man, among many others. Steven’s situation in Convergence echoes Peter Parker’s origin, with a teenager unexpectedly obtaining powers that quickly pull him into trouble.
Moore is the author of the recent Civil War, the first in a new line of prose novels from Marvel Comics; The Art of Iron Man 3 (Marvel, with Marie Javins); and THE 99, a multicultural superhero comic from Teshkeel. Illustrator Andie Tong has worked on titles for various franchises, including Tron: Betrayal, Spectacular Spider-Man UK, The Batman Strikes, Smallville, Wheel of Time, and The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Tong also concept-designs for various companies and juggles illustration duties on a range of children’s picture storybooks for Harper Collins. Malaysian born, Tong migrated to Australia at a young age, and then moved to London in 2005. He currently resides in Singapore.
