Thanks to ADour's blogs regarding the announcement of ALL-NEW, ALL-DIFFERENT MARVEL NOW! and the release of new titles and the relaunch of Marvel's several titles, I decided to do a reaction blog to these titles due to my previous blog, Post-Secret Wars Expectations talking about what I want for the Marvel Universe to have in order for it to evolve and grow. For those of you who had read my previous blog, this blog would be a sequel to that one. For this blog, I'm not only giving my opinion, but I'm going to ask some questions and further elaborate on my expectations from the previous blog. Unlike the other blog, this blog will be UPDATED as I give out my thoughts on each of the titles being released as there are currently 45 comic book series that were revealed, while Marvel announced they would be producing 55-60 series. Anyways, here it is:
If you haven't read my previous blog, please click here.
Thanks to Secret Wars, a new series called A-Force had been released a few weeks ago and has been revealed by Marvel as one of the series that would be surviving past Secret Wars and put into mainstream continuity (Earth-616). To me, I think this is absolutely a great idea as we (the readers) need more female super-heroines. I would also want some costume redesigns on some of the characters as some of them are (to me) kinda revealing and this book is supposed to be promoting gender equality and feminism. I just hope that most of the villains would be male so that the A-Force series would focus more on tackling against gender inequality and violence against women, making the book more appealing to women or new female readers to the Marvel Universe. Do you guys support/not support this all-female team of Avengers? Let me know down below!
I don't know if this cover was a fake or not, but Marvel apparently announced a relaunched Uncanny Avengers team composing of Spider-Man, Doctor Voodoo, Quicksilver, Rogue, Human Torch/Inferno?, Steve Rogers, an unnamed female, and never believe this.... the Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool himself! Apparently, Deadpool would be resurrected post-Secret Wars and finally be accepted into an Avengers team. I think it was finally time that Deadpool joined an Avengers team as people keep on hating him for being too annoying. I'm surprised Spider-Man is on the team as he isn't even a mutant, but he did teach the X-Men's Special Class, so I guess it makes sense for him to be recruited into the Uncanny Avengers. I just hope he brings some Parker Industries tech to the team. Remember in Avengers and X-Men: Axis, when Iron Man stated that Deadpool would never be a part of an Avengers team for as long as he lived and as long as there is an Avengers team after the Red Supremacy? Boy, you were so wrong, Tony Stark! What is your reaction to Deadpool finally being an Avenger?
Marvel also announced the relaunch of New Avengers consisting of Sunspot, Songbird, Hulkling, Squirrel Girl, and Hawkeye. Apparently, Sunspot still retains control of A.I.M., but it is no longer known as Advanced Idea Mechanics, it is known as Avengers Idea Mechanics! I'm wondering if this new team is the Avengers version of the corporate X-Factor (Serval Industries) being run by Da Costa International. I'm also hoping that this book would further explain or have an emphasis on Da Costa International as we don't know much about the company. I would love to see this new team co-operate with Parker Industries or Stark Industries to develop new crime-fighting technologies or counter something even worse than the incursions or have a contingency plan for Earth-616 just in case it gets destroyed, again. Let me known down below about your ideas and suggestions for the New Avengers!
Marvel also released a cover on the Ultimates, but the team won't be the Ultimates from Earth-1610. Instead, a new team would be formed after Secret Wars consisting of Earth-616 (I'm assuming) heroes such as Black Panther, Blue Marvel, Miss America, Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers), Spectrum, and... and... the WORLD EATER GALACTUS!??! I'm surprised that Galactus is on this team. What is his reasons for being on that team? Why is he on the team? How is he on the team? Hopefully, the Ultimates series would answer these questions. Were you guys surprised as I am to find Galactus on this new team? Can you create some theories or reasons why you think/not think Galactus should be on the team? Let me know down below!
Finally, after like 20+ freaking years, Doctor Strange has his own series in a very long time. This guy had to suffer being the team player, being stripped as his position as Sorcerer Supreme, and had to be the sidekick of Doctor Doom during the Time Runs Out event. I'm actually stoked to see what new villains and challenges Doctor Strange would face as he is once again the Sorcerer Supreme. To be honest, I kinda don't like his costume in the cover and I felt like it should've reflected his modern look instead of the original costume, but at the same time new fans would need to see what Doctor Strange was like in the comics, so hopefully we'll have a new costume redesign in the next relaunch (if they are going to have one). What are your thoughts on Doctor Strange?
All-New All-Different Avengers
Okay, we comic readers already know that this was going to happen thanks to Free Comic Book Day's preview of issue one. To be honest, I kinda hate that there's only seven Avengers on the team, but its kinda nice to have a small Avengers team for once instead of making it bigger like the MARVEL NOW! incarnation. I was actually shocked that Stark didn't have the financial resources to bankroll the team because traditionally Iron Man was the guy who funded the Avengers and provided them with transportation such as the Quinjet. I was also shocked that Captain America had a falling-out with Steve and that Vision is a little depowered. I was not expecting Kamala Khan to be on the team, but due to the increasing popularity of Miles Morales, Sam Alexander, and herself, it makes perfect sense for her to be an Avenger. So now the Earth's Mightest Heroes are a little... under-funded and that's a problem. What are your thoughts and suggestions on this all-new team?
To be honest, I don't read Captain Marvel, but I can say I like the costume redesign as it fits with her military status perfectly. Apparently, Captain Marvel has been selected to command a space station designed to be the first line of defense against alien threats to Earth according to ADour's blog. I'm wondering what alien threats will Captain Marvel face against in the relaunched series. Is Noh-Varr gonna make an appearance in this series? After all he's the self-proclaimed protector of Earth, so I don't see why that they can't include him as a supporting character. What are your thoughts on Captain Marvel?
Sam Wilson, Captain America
This comic book would be a relaunch to All-New Captain America, as Sam Wilson is still Captain America. Judging from the cover, it seems that Steve Rogers and Sam will have a falling out after an unknown event, breaking the long-lasting friendship they had since they stopped the Red Skull together. What happened between the two of them that was so bad? Did they fight over who got to lead the Avengers? Did they have a bar fight and refused to apologize to each other or something like that? Leave your thoughts and suggestions below!
The Totally Awesome Hulk
Really, Marvel? You had to play the Thor Vol 4 card with the Hulk by making the new Hulk unknown and replacing Indestructible Hulk and Savage Hulk into a non-creative title called... Totally Awesome Hulk. Okay, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that the book would not be totally awesome (pun intended), but you had to state the obvious? Besides, the Totally Awesome Hulk is Amadeus Cho, it has to be. This new Hulk is not Ultimate Reed Richards or Odinson... (who came up with these ridiculous rumors?) Judging from the hairstyle, it is Amadeus Cho as he possesses a similar hairstyle. Also, Marvel artist Frank Cho will be illustrating it. Wouldn't it be a funny coincidence? If you guys don't think if the Hulk is not Amadeus Cho, then who do you think is? Leave suggestions below!
Thank you, THANK YOU, MARVEL! oh my god, this comic series is the one that I'M DEFINITELY EXCITED FOR! For those of you who've read my previous blog, you may remember that one of my suggestions was for a spider-themed Batman Incorporated to make sure the whole world knows about great power and great responsibility. It seems that now Marvel had decided that Peter would be taken to the next level as they introduced a new redesigned costume and a new Spider-Mobile. Although they haven't announced anything about Spider-Man Incorporated, I'm still waiting for Marvel to use it, although the next series that I'm going to react to may have a hand with it.
This series would be a relaunch or a new series (I'm not sure) to the Spider-Verse (the one in Secret Wars) miniseries. It will feature the Warriors of the Great Web (Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Man: India, Spider-UK, Spider-Girl, Spider-Ham, and Spider-Gwen) under a new name, the Web Warriors, named after Dinsey XD's Ultimate Spider-Man's team of the same name. This series is also one that I'm looking forward to read and I have nothing against it. What threats do you think that the Web-Warriors would have to face?
I was kinda shocked that Spider-Woman would be pregnant, because I was wasn't expecting it but hey it's the All-New, All-Different Marvel right? To be honest, this is one series that I'm only going to read because of the mystery of who the father of the baby. Maybe Hawkeye? List any suggestions for who is the father of Spider-Woman's baby!
This series will be revisiting the original storyline with Spider-Man as a teenager, but only this time Miles Morales will be Spider-Man in the new series. As Miles is entering a world that is not his, I wonder how he would react to the unfamiliar surroundings of Earth-616's New York? Would his main supporting cast would be in the mainstream universe like Ganke, Judge, and his father Jefferson Davis? Will he remember his past universe? Will Brooklyn Visions Academy be in Earth-616? Let me know in the comments section below!
Invincible Iron Man
YES!!! YES!! YES!! Tony Stark is no longer inverted and back into his old self once again in an all-new relaunch of the Invincible Iron Man! Yep, that's right, SUPERIOR NO MORE. This series focuses on Tony facing new enemies, gaining a new love interest, and finding his biological parents. I'm kinda sad that the Superior Iron Man armor is gone (I admit the armor had a futuristic look to it so that was the only thing I loved about Superior Iron Man, but it's kinda nice to have the red and gold trademark colors once again. What new enemies do you think Tony would face? Are they more deadlier than the Mandarin? Or maybe more sinister than any of Tony's technological-based villains? Name some suggestions in the comments section below!
From the ashes of Secret Wars, this Squadron Supreme will be composed by the different members of different Squadron Supremes that have been destroyed across the Multiverse, including Avengers' Hyperion, New Avengers' Doctor Spectrum, Supreme Power's Nighthawk, and DP7's Blur. I'm okay with there being only one single Squadron Supreme team, but I wanna know what happened to Earth-712's Squadron Supreme. Were they killed by the Incursions? Were they wiped out during Secret Wars? Leave suggestions in the comments below!
