Marvel's newest hero gets her own TV show on Disney Plus when you watch "Echo" online. Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox) aka Echo was first introduced in "Hawkeye" as a deaf Native American Choctaw who led the Tracksuit Mafia, a gang working for crime lord Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin (Vincent D'Onofrio). 

Echo streaming details

Echo episodes 1-6 begin streaming Tuesday, Jan. 9 at 9 p.m. ET on Disney Plus and Hulu.

But after betraying Fisk, who turns out to have ordered her father's death, Maya must go on the run. She heads to her hometown in Oklahoma, where she has a chance to reconnect with her heritage and come to terms with the past.

Echo is the first show released under the “Marvel Spotlight” banner, intended for stories that don’t have deep ties to the MCU — ironic since it’s a spinoff of "Hawkeye." But Marvel has stated that "Echo" is meant to be a standalone and fans should feel free from needing to have watched other films or series to understand what's going on. Here's everything you need to watch "Echo" online. Plus, scroll down for the trailer and full cast list.

When is the 'Echo' release date on Disney Plus and Hulu?

'Echo' trailer

The trailer for "Echo" highlights the deep ties — and similarities — between the protagonist, Maya Lopez, and her long-time protector/mentor Wilson Fisk. They share a boiling rage that they don't always contain. Maya has finally turned on Fisk but she's no angel herself. She's capable of tremendous violence herself. "So, who's the monster?" Fisk wonders.
