Earlier this week, on Monday morning, Marvel Comics and Riot Games made an exciting announcement on the comic creation of League of Legends’ Ashe. Soon enough, all the fans out there will be able to learn more about the lore of this iconic champion. The champion’s origin story will be created by the two giants in the current world’s entertainment scene.


Thoughts from Marvel

"Many fans of the Marvel Universe and comics share their interests and passion for storytelling with the gaming community,” C.B. Cebulski, Editor-in-Chief of Marvel expressed. “'League of Legends is one of the most well-known games in the industry, and their unique world and the extensive roster of rich characters and are a perfect fit for comic books. We’re excited to partner with Riot and help build the League of Legends Universe for fans and players around the world.”

Understanding the champion

Ashe is a classic champion in LOL. Having her signature white hair, she leads the greatest tribe of Freljord, an icy-frozen territory in the game. The comic most likely will have the title: League of Legends: Ashe: Warmother and will center around her origin story. Further, from that, Marvel and Riot didn’t spoil much information on the plot of the upcoming comic. However, they did say that the story will cover the champion from her early ages.

As a matter of fact, Ashe was the one to get a comic cover because of her unexplored role in the universe of the game. Moreover, she was one of the early champions in the game. She first appeared almost 10 years back in the past and therefore played a major role in League’s marketing strategies.
