This Fall, Marvel promises an all-new, all-different Marvel Universe and will introduce a new direction for the Marvel Universe.

“This is the Marvel Universe,” says Axel Alonso, Editor In Chief. “This fall, we will be inviting readers into a universe comprised of bold new landscapes populated with characters and teams both familiar and brand-new.”

I see what Axel Alonso is saying, but I think we’ve all seen this kind of hype before, only to discover everything returns to status quo quickly. Is this really a game changer?

“This is going to be an absolute game changer for Marvel,” says David Gabriel, SVP of Sales & Marketing. “Similar to the most successful comics industry program of this century – Marvel NOW!, All-New All-Different Marvel is going to be presenting fans new #1’s for every title coming out during this event. This is a brand new beginning that honors our past 76 years, yet takes a bold step with daring, and accessible, entry points. Simply stated – this is Marvel!”

Marvel said in its press release that all fans will be introduced to the perfect start of the Marvel Universe. Do you believe it?

    DC is bringing back Earth 2. I have no interest whatsoever in the pictures above which is “How to combine the movies with “diversity” and screw up a good thing.”. No thianks. Goodbye Marvel Comics, I’ll see ya’ll at the movies.

    – Spider-Man does whatever half dozen other Spider-Men do. Probably still gonna check out how Peter Parker is doing every now and then.

    – I like Ms Marvel and I dont Mind Daredevil colour change, as long as they return him to Hell’s Kitchen, California doesn’t fit to him at all.

    – I see yet another gender swap in Wolverine, at least this is kind of a legacy character, but with Old Man Logan around they want to eat their cake and save it too.

    – Lady Thor and Captain Falcon, sorry I just cant bring myself to accept nor care about them, originals were too important characters to me and Falcon could have been perfectly fine character on his own after strong appearance in Movie Cap.

    – Kinda curious what Sorcerer Supreme does with an axe.

    – Iron man in the center, as expected, not necessarily Tony Stark, though. Kinda hope its not, or at least heavily retconned Tony, hes been made insufferable hypocrite, corporate facist in recent years, thats something for Marvel’s poster boy.

    – I got no idea who Flag-cape sabre guy, Green Hoodie and Upper Left Corner Cosmic characters are.

    I was really worried about DC after shaky Convergence but this weeks excellent #41’s and couple of good #1’s made me turn around 180 degrees, some of the most interesting stuff I’ve read for some time. Justice League and Action Comics are instantly back on my pull list.

    At the same time, these promo pics from Marvel attract absolutely zero interest from me, I hope Im wrong but they seem to go after much younger and much less aware of these characters’ and this company’s history audience. With constant rebooting and #1’s (yes I know they wont admit it) I cant build any attachment to these stories or characters in them, Nor am I happy with replacing important legacy characters with new ones just because current social climate makes it smart PR move or sidelining my favorite teams in favor of easier to monetize because movie rights teams I have no interest in.

    One can always make an argument that its how business woks, but I dont care, I have zero stocks of Marvel studios and im not responsible of their finances, my concern is only what Im interested reading. Wake me up When Steve is Cap again, Thor is the real Thor, X-Men books have been announced and Fantastic Four are a thing again. Until then, I’ll stick to occasional trade.

    • “Flag sabre guy” was, at one time, an alternate costume/disguise of one of the late 90’s Thunderbolts that was actually a villain. I think it was called like Citizen V or something like that? Don’t know if it is the same character or a different incarnation, but I recognize the costume.

  3. ZOMG! Citizen V!!! *ahem*

    I mean, I have fond memories of the original run of Thundrrbolts and hope this means they will be able to recapture some of that magic.
