At the Diamond Comic Distributors’ retail summit, Marvel announced the next major event will be titled Dark Reign.  The series announced by Brian Bendis will follow the after effects of Secret Invasion that will feature a complete change to the Avengers titles.  Bendis will leave Mighty Avengers with issue #20 and launch the new Dark Avengers.  No team replacement for Mighty Avengers has been announced.

Marvel also announced Ultimate Avengers by Mark Millar for release in early 2009, Amazing Spider-Man #600 that will ask the question, “What really happened at Spider-Man’s wedding?”, and Marvel Noir, a new black and white line that will feature the X-Men, followed by Spider-Man and other Marvel characters.

More news on these series when we get our daily e-mail from Marvel.

    “Bendis will leave Mighty Avengers with issue #20 and launch the new Dark Avengers.”

    The Avengers are about a decade late hopping on the Marvel’s all-things-grim-and-gritty bandwagon, aren’t they?

    “… Amazing Spider-Man #600 that will ask the question, ‘What really happened at Spider-Man’s wedding?’ …”

    Will Amazing Spider-Man #601 then ask the question, “What really happened at Spider-Man’s honeymoon?” … ? Because that’d probably sell better.

    I’ll miss Mighty Avengers. Bendis may have been writing the cast as being tools but at least they were out there trying to accomplish heroic things. The New Avengers since Civil War has just been stumbling around embarrassing themselves.

    Gee, Bendis. Jealous of DC much? :p

    This is kinda reminding me of New Coke in a way. “Marvel. We’re the ‘realistic’ DC!” I bet you the Marvel fanboys will be raving about it

    The solicits suggest that the upcoming ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN ANNUAL is certainly gonna try to fill that void in your life.
