Marvel Crash Something Like Fifteen Different Events Together in Hopes of Creating SUPEREVENT

The last few days have been bizarre, at Marvel. With the news that Jonathan Hickman’s run on Avengers is leading up to the return of ‘Secret Wars’ next year, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the company would settle with just the one big event. Not so. Instead, over the last few days they’ve been teasing the return of basically every major event that the company have ever published. First was Secret Wars, then Civil War, Marvel Zombies, Age of Ultron. And now, hey! They’re throwing in something called ‘Years of Future Past’ as well.

I hope you’ll all join me for a hearty Claremontian WHAT THE DEVIL

Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic’s Secret Wars seems to be the catalyst to all this. Hickman’s writing has introduced the concept of ‘incursions’ to the Marvel Universe – sort of black holes which drag alternate worlds close to one another, I think. As you can see in the image above, the storyline seems to be merging a whole load of different characters into the same world – lots of alternate universe stuff going on.

That seems to be leading into a series of familiar titles with unfamiliar casts and ideas coming up:

My guess is we’ll be seeing a lot of these things coming in the next few days. Is anybody ready for INFERNOS?

THE INFINITY BOOT?

A SECOND MUTANT MASSACRE?

RETURN OF THE PIXIE STRIKES BACK?
