Marvel Comics Announces Return Of Wolverine & More
Now new details have become known, which isn't exactly what I hoped for as it pairs the characters together.
Marvel Comics is actually currently doing this right now with Nova, which is failing miserably as sales are already at cancellation level (and well below the 2007 Abnett/Lanning Richard Rider Nova series).
I wish Marvel would just ditch the replacement characters altogether or keep them on their own. It's seems obvious Marvel Comics is pretty desperate to get these replacement characters to work, but comic fans just aren't buying it (figuratively and literally).
Disney's ABC News released the following info:
"We are looking to honor the legacy of the entire universe, so we are taking the iconic legacy heroes and pairing them with the new class," Alonso said. "It very much indicates where we are going in the future with all of these characters and what we've been planning for some time for the universe."
"How did we do this is part of the fun," he said. "Right now, Rogers isn't much of a good guy. Why would Sam want to team up with him? Banner's dead! Logan's dead! These are questions that demand to be seen. What I will tell you is we have an ingenious device [to bring them back]."
"These stories do happen, they really count. They really matter. This isn't some alternate reality story or some time-travel story," Alonso explained.
