    Yay diversity for the sake of diversity! Let's not bother creating new characters, let's just fuck up the old ones. Can't wait for the new Wolverine to look like Magic Johnson's son.

    Glad I gave up comic books in my teens...

    The Next Marvel Universe Will Have a New Spider-Man and a New Hulk

    Evan Narcisse
    After Secret Wars is done, the Marvel Universe is going to look very different. Someone else is going to be the Strongest One There Is. Another wall-crawler will be using the name Spider-Man. Oh, and Wolverine—a Wolverine, anyway—is coming back, too.

    In reports hitting today via Mashable andUSA Today, Marvel Comics has announced that they’ll be relaunching their entire publishing line with new #1s as part of an initiative they’re calling All-New, All-Different Marvel. The focus will be on new characters and status quo changes that will shake things up the same way that the new female Thor and Sam Wilson’s becoming Captain America did. Here’s Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso to Mashable:

    “We chose all of our creators to come in with a hook — a big thing has happened that changes the status quo of the character.”

    “These changes were not short-term. We’re deeply invested in those characters.”

    Marvel’s looking to replicate the media buzz that the Captain America and Thor moves generated, with Alonso saying that “the all-new Hulk ... this character is certain to cause debate.” The USA Today article quotes him as saying:

    “You’re going to be looking at, in certain cases, new characters inhabiting those roles, and new characters dealing with profound changes in the relationships with others around them and where they live. We’ve challenged everybody to come up with the right ‘Oh (expletive)‘ reveal for their character to shake it up and make it interesting.”

    Alonso also said that character and creator diversity will be a big focus of the Based on the promo image above, it seems like original Captain America Steve Rogers will still be be the older version from before Secret Wars. The inclusion of Miles Morales—Peter Parker’s successor in the alternate reality Ultimate Universe—into the Marvel Universe is all but a given, too, with both this image and his recent appearance in an All-New, All-Different Avengers preview story. It’s a safe bet that he’s the new Spider-Man Alonso mentions. (He’s not a new creation, of course, but he’ll be new to the mainline Marvel Universe.) And the character on the far right is a version of 1970s-era Native American hero Red Wolf, who’ll be showing up in a Secret Wars tie-in title. A teaser for the All-New, All-Different Marvel will be out in July, previewing the coming changes before the fall.​

    Good. I fucking hate Lamerine and his band of one trick pony X Bitches.

    Seriously, the comic industry as a whole is going to shit. I don't know if because of the mainstream success of the movies and TV shows, but both DC and Marvel comics are pretty awful at the moment. DC's post New 52 character revamps are terrible.

    this happens every couple of years. Another reason I stopped "buying" comic books. Doesn't mean I've stopped reading them though.

    Marvel needs to have a character with a big $ on it's chest.

    Since the movies and TV shows have gone mainstream, I think we can expect more watered down, politically correct characters and storylines.

    Well my ps4 was boring me so I picked up an xbox one with the Halo collection and two Forza games. The Forzas blow away any of the ps4 racers and I liked Halo on the original xbox so I figured it was a no brainer.

    My big accomplishment so far has been to recreate my '87 GN in the Forza games. It handles like shit in the game too......they nailed it. :yes:
