Over the past few years, Marvel has been growing a huge roster of second generation heroes bearing the same name as their predecessors with an all-new identity underneath an established cape and cowl. It all started with the time-displaced X-Men…wait no! It all started with the brand new Thor…wait that doesn’t sound right either! We’re not exactly sure where it started but Marvel is finally drawing some attention to the twin generations of heroes with a brand new teaser reading: GENERATIONS.
The image debuted today at the ComicsPro event with the hint of a Summer 2017 reveal, but the publisher sent over the teaser image with only a date. Details are slim to none, but it seems clear that this picture is drawn by the incredible Alex Ross (Kingdom Come). There’s also an undeniable novelty in mixing two generations of Marvel heroes together under one roof.
If you were wondering just who is in the image, I noticed two versions of Jean Grey, Wolverine and X-23, Thor and Jane Foster Thor, Captain America and Sam Wilson, Nova and Sam Alexander, Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, Carol Danvers, Hawkeye and Kate Bishop, Iron Man and Riri Williams, Spider-Man and Miles Morales, Hulk and Amadeus Cho. There’s a ton of Marvel characters that are all going to be under one roof for the big event! Stay tuned to The Beat for more on the story. Don’t miss out on our weekly Marvel review column.
