Marvel Rising is a Marvel Comics cross-platform franchise headed by writer Mairghread Scott (The Transformers: Windblade) that was launched in 2018.

Aimed at young girls, the franchise focuses on the diverse, younger heroes within Marvel's lineup and their adventures, both as a team known as the Secret Warriors (based loosely on the team of the same name) and as individuals. Beside sharing a similar art style to other Marvel animated properties airing at the same time, most of the franchise is set within its own separate continuity, with changes made to character origins and relationships. The exception to this is the comic books, which are set within the mainstream Marvel comics continuity.

The main team consists of Quake (Chloe Bennet), Ms. Marvel (Kathreen Khavari) and her teleporting bulldog Lockjaw (Dee Bradley Baker), Squirrel Girl (Milana Vayntrub) and her best friend Tippy-Toe (also Baker), Ghost-Spider (Dove Cameron), Inferno (Tyler Posey), America Chavez (Cierra Ramirez), and Patriot (Kamil McFadden).

Other characters include Captain Marvel (Kim Raver) and villainous Kree Accuser Hala (Ming-Na Wen).

It is essentially Marvel's answer to DC Comics' DC Super Hero Girls, albeit in a world more closely resembling the traditional Marvel universe than that of the aforementioned DC Super Hero Girls.

Following 2019, the franchise has ended/left defunct, with no new installments following the last animated special.
