Now this is interesting. Obviously something was coming after Secret Wars, but the question was what? We’ve had a few hints, like in the All-New, All-Different Avengers FCBD story, and Rick Remender’s Rage of Ultron OGN, but now it seems like every Marvel Comic post – Secret Wars will be jumping forward 8 months in time. Much like it did in Hickman’s Avengers and New Avengers before Secret Wars in fact. Hey, what happened to that? I thought every other book was meant to catch up and fill in the blanks or something? Anyway.
Tom Brevoort elaborates:
“In the same way that events jumped forward in time eight months in Avengers and New Avengers during the lead-up to Secret Wars, so too when we enter the new Marvel Universe eight months will have passed for all of the characters as well. This provides our creators, even apart from Secret Wars, to drop into exciting new situations and status quos on the fly. So look for surprises and mysteries and changes galore as series resume in the NEW MU.”
Which is what I just said, Tom. Keep up.
This was first glimpsed at C2E2, but now that Secret Wars is just getting started it’s obvious people are going to want to know what comes next. After this big thing? THE NEXT BIG THING.
