Re: Marvel Relaunches In October With Marvel NOW

Sounds like a Grant Morrison Cap. But Remender and JRJr is a solid team. As is Waid/Yu on Indestructible Hulk (if Yu can stay on the book), Remender/Cassaday on Uncanny Avengers (ditto on Cassaday), Bendis/Immonen on All New X-men, Fraction/Allred on FF, etc. I don't have much confidence that they'll stick with the new premises (so hey, let's wait for the trade), but at least the creative teams seem solid.

Re: Marvel Relaunches In October With Marvel NOW

Who is ready for SUPERIOR Spider-Man?



The newly titled "Superior Spider-Man," helmed by Slott and the rotating art team of Stegman, Ramos and Camuncoli, will focus on a darker web-slinger than readers have ever seen.

The first story arc, entitled "Hero or Menace," will include alterations to the traditional Spidey costume, which reflect some of the hero's new abilities that will likely be revealed at the end of the year in "Amazing Spider-Man" #700. Stegman will serve as artist for the first three issues, followed by a rotation with Ramos and Camuncoli on subsequent arcs.

Slott further teased that there will be a shift in the status quo by the time "Superior Spider-Man" #1 hits and a change in Spider-Man's M.O.

"He's not going to be doing things the old Spider-Man way. There will be a new way of doing things," said Slott, who was coy about whether it's actually Peter Parker under the mask. "You've got to ask yourself, what does 'Superior Spider-Man' mean? Does this mean a Spider-Man with a greater power set? Or maybe he's moving to Michigan. Just set up shop next to Lake Superior."

Just what we need. Another "darker" and "edgier" character update.

Re: Marvel Relaunches In October With Marvel NOW

How many damn relaunches has Marvel had over the last 10 years?Not neccessarily Spiderman..but Hulk,Thor,Captain America?Seems like they start with "first issue!",and than eventually,after a year or 2,we end up with a double sized issue #500 for 7 or 8 bucks.

Yup, that's pretty much exactly what they do.

Re: Marvel Relaunches In October With Marvel NOW

Besides the New 52, Marvel has another obstacle to face:

My Little Pony #1 Sells Over 90,000 Copies

Wow. Just wow.

I understand that advance orders for the first issue of the My Little Pony comic from IDW, all of it’s covers (including the box set of six covers), have come in.

They total 90,100.

On current statistics that would put it selling better than Uncanny X-Men.

Obviously the All New X-Men relaunch will top that, but still. That’s an awful lot of ponies.

And I can hear two little voices across the pond saying “Daddy, can we have our My Little Pony comics?”

It will happen.

Re: Marvel Relaunches In October With Marvel NOW

I wonder how many of those are to male fans...

Actually, these are preorders, which means a lot of comic stores are taking a risk on this. That's actually kinda surprising to me.

BTW how many times Avengers reboots does this make now?

I'm guessing at least 75% male, with most of those probably being mid 20s and older.

For the life of me, I will never understand this "Brony" subculture.

The cartoon is quite good (hey, I have a daughter, and you should see the other dreck that gets put out), but yeah, it's certainly taken a life of it's own.

I'm still not convinced that it's not a running joke.

I'm waiting for the "Existential X-Men" title to be used one day, featuring X-angst all the time.

Re: Marvel Relaunches In October With Marvel NOW

What I don't get about this is that it's a single #1 each month for a few months running. I haven't read Marvel, and I've heard AvX was a disaster. I'm intrigued by Uncanny Avengers, though, and I might pick up the Superior Spider-Man title. Slott annoyed the crap out of me on ASM, but I wonder if that was an aspect of the character of Peter Parker that he was playing up. Maybe another interpretation would be different; I don't know.

Anyway, it might be fun to see Spider-Man fans lose their collective minds if he does something outrageous on this title.

One thing I'm happy about, though, is that these should all be monthly titles. At $4 an issue twice a month, Marvel titles just weren't something I was willing to pick up. For each one of those titles, it was another title I couldn't pick up.

Have you seen the spoilers from Slott's interview?

Spoiler:

He stated that Peter Parker would not be the Spider-Man in Superior Spider-Man that replaces Amazing Spider-Man.

He says that he has retractable claws.

And Spider-Man will get back together with Mary Jane Watson. But it will not be Peter Parker Spider-Man...


All three of those seem to be trolling old school Spidey fans, but maybe the book will be good and won't be ret-conned into oblivion in a year, who knows?

Spoiler:
So, someone who has Spider-man's powers will become a new Spider-man and become involved with Mary Jane? And the writer jokes that he will go into hiding after the issue is published. Could it be the return of Ben Reilly the clone?

I am very, very glad I have no impulse to catch up with Marvel's current line of comics.

Re: Marvel Relaunches In October With Marvel NOW

Spider-man is bitten by the Vampire Morbius and turns into a 1/2 good and 1/2 bad hero.

His Spider mutation causes his Vampire changes to be different, hence the "Spider Claws".

He is no longer Peter Parker, he becomes someone else after he is bitten, a "New Creation?".

Just a guess, but it could work...

Re: Marvel Relaunches In October With Marvel NOW

I added The Indestructible Hulk to my pull list. I usually wouldn't be interested in a Hulk title, but I'll give it a chance because of Mark Waid. Daredevil is the only Marvel title that I'm reading, and it's my favorite superhero book right now.

Maybe Wolverine puts on the Spiderman suit. Explains the claws & making out with MJ but not Peter SM.

That's not it. Spoilers are starting to leak now. Just got a peak at the final page. It's pretty much what everyone on Comic Book Resources have been guessing.
