    Not really

    Kong was an upperclassmen in high school in USM and then Miles became Spider-Man and the book did a year long time skip

    Plus the 8-Month gap after Secret Wars and however long they say Miles' tenure as Spider-Man in the Ultimate U was and Kenny would totally be college aged.

    Assuming it is Ultimate Kenny, of course.

    Because what made him great was that he basically figured out Peter's secret and kept it because they became friends, after he had been Flash Thompson's asshole buddy, and that journey isn't really there in 616.

    I guess I should have been clearer. Obviously a character named Kong can work in 616. I meant specifically some of the dynamics that were in Ultimate.

    That

    Isn't what made Kong great at all

    And he was friendly and nice to Peter WAAAAY before he figured out his Secret, which wasn't addressed until Immonen joined the book I believe

    Kong was awesome because he was just a really cool normal guy with a good head on his shoulders and provided a nice perspective to the crazy bullshit and drama in Peter's life

    A role he could fill very easily with Starbrand and Nightmask

    That was the premier example of their friendship. That pushup page was just great, okay?

    Weisman writes fun superhero adventures well, especially ones starring younger characters (See: Spider-Man, Spectacular) and it is nice to see that all of the characters Hickman introduced in his run are by and large being picked up by other writers and bring given spotlights of varying sizes

    The titles/characters we still don't know about from the ANAD teasers:
    Black Panther
    Black Widow (rumored to be Waid/Samnee)
    Red Wolf
    Citizen V
    Retro Style Romance teaser, believed to be Hellcat
    Death's Head

    We also have the mystery sister title to Bendis' Invincible Iron Man that apparently relies on the reveal at the end of next month's issue 1

    I will gladly toss all monies at a Waid/Samnee Black Widow book.

    Also he dated Kitty after Peter and was totally cool.

    He basically grew up from an asshole teenager to a mature teenager.

    What can you tell us about the college Kevin and Adam are attending? Is this Empire State University, where characters like Squirrel Girl are currently matriculating?

    Greg Weisman: Yep. E.S.U. And though we won't see Squirrel Girl right away, Doreen Green does appear in issue #1. But it's not like they're the same person or anything, right? Of course, not. Why would you even think that?

    Will Kevin and Adam have any roommates or new friends when when issue #1 begins?

    Greg Weisman: Kevin and Adam will be roommates, but we'll be introducing a lot of supporting characters, rapidly. Probably the most important is their R.A., Imani Greene, who is destined to become an extremely significant character in the mythos. There's also dormmates Kenny Kong, Shelly Conklin and Krysta Brown, Campus Security Guard Tiny McKeever, and Imani's physical therapist Sha Shan Nguyen (one of my favorite characters in the canon). Plus, what would an E.S.U. education be without a course from a certain Professor Warren?

    Diversity has always been an important issue to me, going back to "Gargoyles" at least. This is going to be a book with an extremely diverse cast of characters, which is part of the reason I wanted Nightmask to share billing with Starbrand.

    Hmm, I wonder if this is the lead-up to a new hero. A cursory check indicates that Imani is gender neutral, too.

    This mini-sode format is just bad. They already have to cram a lot of stuff into 30 minutes. Now they have to break everything down even more to 5 minute segments. That scene in the university was especially rushed and pointless.

    Newsarama had a talk with Dan Abnett about the upcoming Titans Hunt mini-series and how it works seeing the DCnU status of the original Titans.
    Newsarama: Dan, this story is connected to “Convergence"?

    Dan Abnett:
    Yes, in that, during "Convergence" a lot of writers, including myself, were looking at classic continuities, and all the things that have been left behind pre-"New 52." And when DC co-publisher Dan DiDio asked me to do this, he cited my JSA stories for "Convergence" being written as a respectful handling of classic storylines, which is very nice of him. But what they've given me permission to do is sort of reflect upon classic Teen Titans continuity, and draw upon it for the new continuity. So the project has come out of "Convergence," and out of a desire by me and the editorial staff to acknowledge more of classic Teen Titans continuity and characters, and integrate that somehow into the DCU as it is today. But it is the DCU main earth. It is in modern continuity.

    Nrama: So this is not an alternate earth?

    Abnett: No, it is "New 52." It is DCU Prime Earth. I'm dealing with all the current versions of the characters that have appeared in the new continuity. It's absolutely smack-dab in modern continuity. It is very much modern and contemporary. But I think long-time readers will find an awful lot in it that pleases them enormously.

    Nrama: But you have to work around the fact that all these characters are in very different places in the new continuity. Do those form obstacles?

    Abnett:
    I wouldn't call them obstacles, but there are interesting challenges in that the characters I want to use are either placed differently or oddly in the DCU. Dick Grayson is the most obvious example. He's very different from the Robin who was originally a founding member of the Teen Titans. And he has gone through a number of identity shifts. And certainly, at the moment, as Grayson, the agent of Spyral, he's a very different sort of character, but the essence of his character, I think, remains the same. When we first meet him in Titans Hunt #1, he's operating on a mission for Spyral. But other characters like Aqualad — Garth — and Donna Troy have appeared in the new continuity, but essentially in very small roles and virtually as villains. So the chemistry, the alchemy, is not the same. And in some cases, obviously, they haven't appeared at all. And so there's a way of crafting them freshly so that they fit into that, whilst acknowledging who they probably have been in the past.

    Nrama: Lilith seems to be the key to pulling all these characters together.

    Abnett:
    Absolutely. As it stands in the opening issue or two, Lilith is the only one who really knows the truth. She knows more about everything than everybody else, but is also in a position of vulnerability because of that. So she's very much the fulcrum on which everything else depends. She's the center of things. But at the same time, she's also, I guess, the vulnerability, because she knows a great deal, and she knows also a lot about the threat they're going to be facing.

    Nrama: This storyline is called "The Secret History of the Teen Titans," so you're introducing a secret history that connects these characters?

    Abnett: Yeah. All of the characters, including Lilith to a certain extent, all of them are discovering things about themselves they didn't know before. And we're going to discover “why” they don't know those things. And therefore we're going to discover a connection between some or all of those characters as the story progresses. Because you know, they aren't teenage sidekicks of classic heroes. Donna Troy, for instance, is an extremely interesting character because she really is a sort of vengeful Amazonian construct, a being of clay, and she's only really been an adversary of Wonder Woman so far. Garth is also at least a threat, if not an out-and-out villain. So to actually draw these together and to show why they are what they are makes it more interesting because they've got further to come. I think if it was just a matter of, you know, Robin getting on the Bat-phone and ringing everybody up and saying, "Can I borrow your sidekick for the weekend?," that wouldn't be a very interesting comic book.

    Oh yeah, I never got around to doing this since I was at PAX, but Marvel's Subscriptions has posted their conversion stuff for Secret Wars -> All New, All Different Marvel. I've bolded the interesting ones.

    1602 Witch Hunter Angela -> Angela: Queen of Hel
    Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows -> Amazing Spider-Man
    All-New Hawkeye -> Hawkeye
    Amazing X-Men -> Extraordinary X-Men
    Ant-Man -> Astonishing Ant-Man
    Deadpool's Secret Wars -> Deadpool
    Deathlok -> Carnage
    Guardians of Knowhere -> Guardians of the Galaxy
    Hail Hydra -> Sam Wilson: Captain America
    Inferno -> Extraordinary X-Men
    Inhuman: Atillan Rising - Karnak
    Iron Man: Armor Wars - > Invincible Iron Man
    Loki: Agent of Asgard -> Contest of Champions
    Master of Kung Fu -> Doctor Strange (???)
    Mrs. Deadpool and the Howling Commandos -> Howling Commandos of SHIELD
    Punisher -> Carnage
    X-Tinction Agenda -> Uncanny Avengers
    Secret Wars 2099 -> Spider-Man 2099
    Secret Wars: Ultimate End -> The Ultimates (Not Spider-Man, surprisingly)
    Spider-Verse -> Web Warriors
    Star-Lord & Kitty Pryde -> Star-Lord
    Thors -> The Mighty Thor
    Year's of Future Past -> Extraordinary X-Men

    -Books that are continuing under the same name, just with an issue #1-
    All-New X-men -> All-New X-Men
    Howard the Duck -> Howard the Duck
    Unbeatable Squirrel Girl -> Unbeatable Squirrel Girl
    Uncanny Inhumans -> Uncanny Inhumans
    Spider-Woman -> Spider-Woman

    -Books not continuing from previous subscriptions-
    All-New, All-Different Avengers
    All-New Wolverine
    Black Knight
    Drax
    Illuminati
    Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur
    The Vision

    So, basically, it looks like Punisher, Deathlok and Loki have been canceled for the time being. And I have no idea what Masters of Kung Fu is turning into a Doctor Strange sub... that's just weird.

    The whole point of the book is that it is the cast of the standard Marvel Universe viewed through a magic Kung-Fu lens

    Makes way more sense for it to be Danny alongside every other Kung fu version versus a lady who lived hundreds of years before everyone else in the book
