As far as new titles are concerned, one docuseries that particularly caught our eye is Marvel’s Hero Project, a show that aims to highlight the achievements of children who are working tirelessly to make a difference in the world. If you’re looking for some motivating and heartfelt content, you might want to check it out. Here’s everything you need to know.

When is Marvel’s Hero Project coming out?

The first two episodes of Marvel’s Hero Project are available on Disney+ as of the platform launch in Canada on November 12th. After that, episodes will drop weekly.

What is Marvel’s Hero Project About?

You don’t have to swing from a spider web to fight injustice. That’s exactly what Marvel’s Hero Project is set to prove. This docuseries will focus on 20 special children from all around the US who manage to make a difference in the world without any sign of superpowers.

Instead, they’re real-life heroes who commit acts of bravery and kindness. Each episode, the show will welcome the kids to the Marvel universe by turning their stories into actual comics everyone can read and be inspired by.

Who stars in Marvel’s Hero Project?

The show doesn’t focus on big stars. Instead, it shines the spotlight on ordinary children doing extraordinary things. Like Adonis Watt, who lost his eyesight but still dreams about joining the NFL. Or Elijah Lee, an 11-year-old activist who fights against child abuse. Or Jordan Reeves, who gained international fame after designing a glitter-shooting prosthetic arm for herself.

Marvel’s Hero Project review: Is it any good?

Most definitely yes. With such a touching premise, the show would have to try really hard to flop. The trailer looks heartwarming and the series looks quite inspiring overall. It may not be worth getting the new Disney+ solely for this, but if you do, definitely give the show a watch. We can almost guarantee it will make you tear up.

Marvel’s Hero Project currently has a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes, with critics calling the series uplifting and powerful.

If you decide to watch, you’ll be able to read the comics as well, on the Marvel website, for free. Moreover, so will Adonis Watt. The coming episode featuring him as the “Unstoppable Adonis” will mark the first time Marvel has done a full-length story in braille.
