Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur is a Marvel comic that follows the adventures of Lunella Lafayette, an inhuman child prodigy who’s on a mission to save the world one brilliant invention at a time. Lunella lives in NYC’s Lower East Side. Her mastermind intellect and obsession with inventions and experimentation set her apart from her peers, earning her the nickname Moon Girl. During a chance encounter with an intergalactic communication device, Lunella accidentally warps a giant T-rex from another dimension to her modern-day hometown in NYC. Now with the help of her super-genius powers and her prehistoric sidekick Devil Dinosaur, Moon Girl defends the Lower East Side from bad guys and evildoers.
Today’s release of the character design photos from Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur offers a first look at the main cast, including Moon Girl’s family, friends, and The Beyonder, who Wikipedia describes as “curious and mischievous.”
