Disney+ Hotstar has come up with a new series titled mPower, The four-episode series spotlights several of the MCU’s most inspirational female heroes.

Hochberg. “When I conceived mPower, I did it out of love for my teen daughter so she would have more icons to look up to, voices to learn from and role models to help her impact the world. Today, that vision is now a reality thanks to Brie Larsen, Elizabeth Olsen, the women of Wakanda and Zoë Saldaña, whose leadership was ‘Mpowering’.”
