So Marvel’s big comeback is beginning in August with Generations, a 10 -issue mini series which will team the classic verions of their best known characters with the newer, jazzed up 2017 versions. After a lot of teasing they have finally unveiled all the teams and SOME of the covers. Call it Secret Wars of the teens except it will be…secret FRIENDS.
I’ll say one thing – some of these covers are…a bit on the nose as they say.
Teams include such fan favorites as Bendis and Nick Spencer, but also G. Willow Wilson, Kelly Thompson, Greg Pak and Margaret Stohl. Oh and surprise art guests Ramon Perez.
Here’s the deets. What say you Beat readers? Will you be pull listing this or running away in disgust?
In a flash, the Marvel heroes are offered a gift: to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with those who came before them, free from the burdens of past, present, and future – where time has no meaning. Within the Vanishing Point, through the course of these action-packed adventures, our heroes will discover what is needed to usher in the future of the Marvel Universe. This August, prepare for Marvel’s GENERATIONS!
This epic 10-issue series brings together iconic and present day heroes such as Miles Morales and Peter Parker, Amadeus Cho and Bruce Banner, Iron Man and Ironheart, Laura Kinney and Logan, and many more of your favorite characters. “GENERATIONS unites the present day heroes of the Marvel Universe with their forbearers from the past in order to chart the course of the future!” says SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “These ten adventures are the stepping stones to everything that is to come for all of these characters!”
The stories of GENERATIONS begin at the Vanishing Point, and these epic tales offer fans a direct bridge and prelude into the sense-shattering Marvel Legacy, as the challenges and revelations of GENERATIONS will alter the destinies of our heroes moving forward in a dramatic fashion!
These heroic journeys all launch from the same point: the Vanishing Point! Coming to comic shops this August!
