League of Legends Coming to Marvel Comics in 2019

Jack Gardner



League of Legends has a long and complicated history with its own lore. Plagued by rewritten character biographies and nations whose conflicts have been wiped from existence over the years, Riot Games decided to nullify all of the game's fictional past in 2015 (even eliminating the very concept of summoner's, the very role of the players themselves). Since then, new backstories have emerged for their various characters touching on new wars, new factions, new pieces of Runeterra's history. 


Now, presumably with a firmer grip on the lore of the popular MOBA, Riot has teamed up with Marvel to produce a line of comics set within the League of Legends universe that highlights the origins of some of their most iconic heroes. 


The first in the League of Legends graphic novel series will be titled Ashe: Warmother. The comics begin to release May, 2019. Warmother tells the story of how Ashe developed her ability to shoot magic freezing arrows and leader of the icy north. The full summary reads:

Raised in the savage wilds of the north, Ashe is an Iceborn, a warrior gifted with a magical connection to her frozen homeland—and burdened by her mother’s fanatical expectations. When they set out on a dangerous quest for the truth behind an ancient myth, bonds are broken, secrets come to light, and Runeterra is forever changed. Will young Ashe become the leader her people need? Or is destiny merely an empty dream?

Here's hoping there aren't more retcons in store after the launch of these graphic novels.
