Marvel NOW! - Welcome to the Future of the Marvel Universe (GO TO NEW THREAD)

As the most recent Marvel Universe spanning mega-event, Avengers vs. X-Men, soon reaches its conclusion... some series will end and some will be (re)born, much like the Phoenix at the center of the event.

Occuring almost a year after DC rebooted their entire universe at the end of Flashpoint into the DC New 52, Marvel will be launching Marvel NOW! in October 2012. Some may see it as aping DC's success with the reboot, there are some fundamental differences in how Marvel is going about their relaunch.

1. This is NOT a reboot - All the decades of history in the Marvel Universe is still intact (well barring the wedding which shall not be named, but thats old news). This continues directly from what has come before.

2. It is spread out - In October we will see 1 new series, and after that every week we will see new jumping on points (either new or returning series) with new creative teams under the Marvel NOW! banner through February. So no having to buy tons of #1 issues in one month.

3. Not everything is new - More recent series like Captain Marvel, Hawkeye, Daredevil, and others will not be starting with fresh #1 issues. Only stories that fit with a true new start will be restarted with Marvel NOW!


So we know its coming... but what exactly IS coming?

OUT NOW!

    Good OP, dude.

    I'm hoping Marvel's panel at Comic-Con this week is going to give us a lot more information about what's coming up with this.

  • ManetherenWolfManetherenWolf Registered User regular
    thanks. Figured instead of having the discussion on this split in the Avengers and X-Men threads, it deserved its own, like the DC stuff got.


    Looking at the titles ending, and that Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor are already confirmed with new #1 issues...

    we will probably be seeing a new Hulk and Fantastic Four #1 out of this too. Plus it was already said that All-New is replacing Uncanny.

    FF, New Mutants, and Legacy will probably be just plain gone after this.


    Oh, and one thing from the Uncanny Avengers solicits...

    Someone dies at the end of AvX it appears. They mention a funeral in the first issue of Uncanny.

    I have a crazy idea about who dies. I think it's possible that Xavier might sacrifice himself somehow to save the world. I mean, it would have a powerful effect on all the mutants, and he hasn't really done anything important in a while now.

    So I guess the speculation/rumor of Jean Grey coming back at the end of AvX isn't true.

    I don't think I like the idea of Rogue being an Avenger, but I'm woefully behind in my post-2000 Marvel lore so maybe she's actually worthy of the denomination?

    I'm not really sure how this differs from .1's and #1's aside from it having more internal coordination and being a marketing ploy. In any case, I'm optimistic. I've been trying to play catch up on the last decade or so, focusing primarily on X-Men lore, and it's been a much longer process than I was hoping (thank god for uncannyxmen.net). Having solid, fresh jumping on points could be quite nice.

    Jean is coming back sorta... but its her teenage version along with the other 4 of the original team time traveling to the present somehow.

    I think the main difference is that they are doing a much larger shuffling of creative teams. The Bendis era of Avengers is over. Hickman's long FF/F4 run is done. Brubaker's Captain America run is ending. Things like that. Now we are going to get to see new writers working with these characters for the first time in quite awhile.

    It really does remind me of what happened right around the time New X-Men by Morrison and X-Force by Milligan launched. Really testing the waters with new creative teams and pitches to really freshen up the books.

    -Gillen leaving Journey into Mystery? Book ending? Doesn't really specify what is happening there, but anything is possible I suppose.
    -Bendis and Bagley leaving Avengers Assemble after issue 8. Said to spin off into a "New Initiative"... So Guardians of the Galaxy?
    -Secret Avengers looks to be remaining, as it is just starting a new major story arc.
    -Avengers/New Avengers are winding down into the final Bendis arc, including what appears to be the return of Brother Voodoo.

    Ugh, odd choices of X-Books to purge. I'd much rather see X-Men and Astonishing X-Men go than Uncanny in particular, and Legacy to a lesser degree. I'm guessing that there's potentially an X-Book being added to the line-up that won't be announced until the end of AvX? I notice none of the solicits for the new books mention anything of Scott, Emma, Namor, Peter, or Illyana. Since they're the main characters in Uncanny, and there's no mention of a replacement book starring any of them, is it safe to assume that a new book can't/won't be announced until we find out what happens with the Phoenix Five in AvX's conclusion?

  • ManetherenWolfManetherenWolf Registered User regular
    The last issue of Uncanny's solict even says that it is basically classified due to AvX's ending.

    Yeah, I did notice that after checking out the CBR page you linked. It's really still a shame to see that book go, though. I liked almost every member of that team for various reasons. I'm also wondering where Magneto, Danger, and any other members of the Extinction team that weren't members of the Phoenix Five will end up. I guess only time will tell.

    The floating robot appears to be the Hulk's, and I'm guessing it ties in with his techy-looking armor that you don't care for. The guy with the eye patch is in fact Cable.

  • BlankzillaBlankzilla The Year 198X Being Xtreme to the MaxxRegistered User regular
    Alright, cancelled titles we know for sure are getting relaunched:
    Captain America
    Thor
    Iron Man

    Between Jeff Parker's recent post and the Hulk-oriented robot having a SHIELD logo on it I am pretty damn sure Hulk and the Agents of SMASH is happening as well.

    Other rumored books:
    Fantastic Four by Fraction and Larrocoa
    Wolverine by Frank Cho
    Guardians of the Galaxy by Bendis
    Nova by either Bendis or Loeb

    Judging from their presence on the NOW teaser, I am sure we'll get a Nick Fury/SHIELD book as well as something involving Cable

    I would not be surprised if Gillen gets both Iron Man, as rumored, and Thor. Especially since Journey into Mystery seems to be ending with the relaunch. Hopefully he doesn't just have Loki go evil again and we get a Thor and Loki: Bros Thor series

    All-New X-Men is being billed as the new flagship X-Book, so it is likely outright replacing Uncanny X-Men.

    Asked about Silver Surfer, Alonso said Marvel will probably take a look at him soon. He also said that "Dan Buckley hates it when we use the word 'cosmic,' so I'm studiously avoiding it." Instead, Alonso used the more awkward "non-Earthbound characters."

    What's wrong with the word "cosmic"??
    Asked about Doctor Stange, Singh pointed to the "Doctor Strange: Season One" graphic novel coming up from Greg Pak and Emma Rios. Alonso said "there's no lack of love for Doctor Strange, but we need to work out what Marvel magic is." The editors do not want a deus ex machina style of magic, Alonso said. "It's elusive—as soon as we figure it out, you'll see 'Doctor Strange' #1."

    Jeez guys, how long's it going to take to figure out? Just hire a good fantasy author like Glen Cook or Steven Erikson to work it out for you already.
    "Some of the Runaways characters will have a major role in a new unannounced ongoing series that is not called 'Runaways,'" Singh said in response to a fan question about the popular young heroes. "You will know more before September."

    "You're going to get more" Cloak and Dagger, Amanat said, "in 'Amazing Spider-Man.'" Singh said the duo are also in "Wolverine" #310 by Jeph Loeb and Simone Bianchi.

    Similar to his "Runaways" answer, Singh said some of the "Secret Warriors" characters would turn up in a book not called "Secret Warriors."

    Dan Buckley hates it, apparently

    Gotta say that I really like Cyclops's new costume. I know the eyepiece is not as practical as the simply visor, but if he's going to wear a full headpiece, that helmet looks way cooler.

    Iron Man's suit looks pretty good too.

    Not much interested in Silver Surfer, but I do want more cosmic stuff. Having Rocket and Nova in that image is a good sign.

    So apparently Marjorie Liu said at a panel about diversity in comics that she pitched a comic to Marvel last year that would have been a team composed of Black Widow, X-23, Elektra, and Mystique.

    It sounds cool, but part of me thinks that is kind of a bizarre line-up of people to get together. I guess no more bizarre than the Defenders, but still.

    bit bizarre but they share that

    I am not that interested in any of those characters so my opinions should be taken with a grain of salt but

    I dunno

    it seems like Scans_Daily and the like bait to me

    all of those are characters that have a very strong, vocal following on the internet. Not always a good one.

    which makes sense from a business standpoint, but I have doubts on whether or not it would have been a good book

    what Blank said

    Give Marjorie Liu those characters and watch SD explode with happiness

    and then sadness when it gets cancelled within the year
