Oh boy here we go…as Battleworlds and pizzas collide we’ll have a newish Marvel U at summer’s end. This teaser is a little reminiscent of DC’s various “one year later” upheavals over the years which is little ironic since whether this could be termed a “relaunch” or a “revamp” or just a promotion has been hotly debated. Guess we’ll find out.


  1. Isn’t all this renumbering, rebooting, all-new, all-different stuff getting old even for new readers? Wash, rinse, repeat. Wash, rinse, repeat.

    At a certain point don’t superhero fans seem like Charlie Brown running to kick the football. And Marvel and DC are Lucy pulling it away.

  2. @Charlie Ryan – It depends on what you’re looking for, I suppose. I haven’t looked at Marvel in terms of buying into a cohesive universe for over a decade, so they can reboot as often as they want and my criteria for purchase will remain the same: Does it feature one of the half-dozen or so C-listers I’m still invested in, and is it being handled by a creative team I love/like/am generally OK with?

    Seems to work pretty well — I haven’t had more than two Marvel books on my pull in ages and it generally means I can safely ignore all event books.
