Marvel Comics is attempting to make amends with fans by bringing back some of their favorite characters that they ditched for PC replacements in an event dubbed "Generations," which pairs the originals with the newer characters.

Marvel Comics unveiled the first details for "Generations" through their Disney-owned ABC News site which saw Marvel Comics EIC Axel Alonso offer up:

"These stories do happen, they really count. They really matter. This isn't some alternate reality story or some time-travel story" 

However, now the first solicits for the "Generations" titles have hit the net, which strongly hints at time travel as being a reason for the return of the original and/or dead characters:

• The Thor solicit mentions a young Odinson and a time-lost hero.

• Jean Grey solicit mentions Jean is cast through time.

• The Hulk solicit mentions time-bending.

• Wolverine solicit states for the ages.

• Hawkeye solicit mentions a young Clint, and Kate Bishop figuring out when she is. 

Sure sounds like time travel.

Here are the first few solicits:
