Instead of reading through all the hype and hyperbole Major Spoilers boils down the Mondo Marvel Panel to present you the stuff you need to know now.

  • Ages of Atlas returns as an ongoing series.
  • Mat Broome and Kevin Grevioux will have a new title called Adam: Legend of the Blue Marvel about the most popular superhero of the ’50s and ’60s.  The twist is he is a black superhero who wears a costume to hide his skin color and is asked by the President to step down so as not to screw up the Civil Rights Movement.  This will be a six issue mini-series set to launch in November.
  • The Avengers and Namor will appear in the Blue Marvel series.
  • Iron Man: Agent of SHIELD is ending, but War Machine will take its place, with Greg Pak writing.
  • Garth Ennis returns to the Punisher: War Zone in December. The six-issue mini-series will be a weekly set in the Marvel Knights Punisher universe.
  • Philip K. Dick’s The Electic Ant will be adapted by David Mack.  Paul Pope will provide the covers.
  • Skaar has an epic journey in front of him, and may eventually meet his dad.
  • There are “really big plans” for the out space characters in the Marvel U.
  • The Caretaker returns to Ghost Rider in issue #27.

Not much revealed in this panel, as it appears Marvel is holding some bigger news for later in the week.

    Blue Marvel? As long as they don’t make this in continuity, it sounds good. Then again, I don’t trust Marvel anymore so we might see him right next to Sentry anytime soon.

    @ Maximus:

    The Avengers and Namor will appear in the Blue Marvel series.

    The non-continuity thing isn’t looking too good.

    And how ’bout some love for the AoA ongoing??? Don’t mind losing Parker on MA: THE AVENGERS if this is where he’s headed next.
