Scarlet is a creator-owned comic book series written by Brian Michael Bendis under Marvel Comics' Icon imprint. The title is illustrated and co-created by Alex Maleev.[1]

The series is about a young woman named Scarlet Rue from Portland who rebels against a corrupt society and ends up starting a new American revolution in the process. The series often breaks the fourth wall in that the protagonist talks to the reader of the comic.

Bendis and Maleev previously collaborated on Marvel's Daredevil, Spider-Woman and Halo: Uprising. Scarlet is published on an irregular schedule, with 5 issues published in 2010 - 2011 and two in 2013. The eighth issue appeared in May 2016 and the tenth and issue was released on June 15, 2016. Following a hiatus, the series returned in 2018 under the DC Jinx label.
