Default Marvel Comics in 2015 (Potential Spoilers)

I haven't been keeping up with all the rumors, but what do you think happens when "Time Runs Out!" in May (June?) 2015?

Understandably, most people believe a hard reboot of the Marvel Universe will occur. Any other possibilities?

I don't think they'll be a reboot.

What I think will happen is sort of a put the genie back in the bottle with some house cleaning and temporary status quo's.

I'm not so sure it's a reboot....one thought is that after Age of Ultron we've seen characters from different realities liter the Marvel universe. I'm thinking Time Runs out may play more into a story about time travel and returning these heroes or having the current MU invaded by villains from another reality.

We've seen time travel stories unfold in Uncanny Avengers, X-Men, Spider-Man 2099, Hulk, ect play out over the last few years. IMO Time Runs out will be about the time stream or multiverse.

Or...could Marvel be combining the 616 and Ultimate universe or doing away with one? The end of the Ultimate universe could happen.

I don't think I can handle a reboot. It's hard enough to keep up with what happens with so many books tying into each other without having to forget everything we have learned before just so we can relearn who all our favorite characters are.

I already know who Daredevil is, I don't want to learn a whole new history about him.

Unless a reboot is planned out months ahead of time and by only a few key people, it's going to unravel into an incomprehensible mess within a year.

Probably the death of any character that couldn't be put into a Marvel/Disney Movie.

Well... I was NOT expecting this.
Johnathan Hickman and Esad Ribic's year long event Secret Wars to follow up Time Runs Out.

Sigh. I kind of soured on Hickman awhile ago. I'm not sure this interests me much. I switched over to 99 percent trade waiting on DC with the new 52 and it looks like Marvel might be forcing me to do the same with them and just do Image, darkhorse, Indies etc. on the week to week basis.

I'm up for it, but I do tend to really like Hickman's work.

Interesting to see the Shadowline Saga characters in there (Dr. Zero at the top, St. George at the bottom, Power Line above him). And Obnoxio the Clown in the upper right corner...

Plus various future characters (2099 and I think Earth X both) some original New Universe characters and the Ultimates characters.

Could be really good. Could be a mess, too, but I live in hope.

that visual seems like a consummation of what Hickman's (as well as other writers here adn there) been building to.

There are some characters I can't identify in the picture, but at the very least I see:

* Iron Avengers (Earth X)
* Black Panther (Earth X)
* Older version's of 616 Cap, Thor, Wasp, and Iron Man.
* A Mark I version of Iron Man
* Hyperion and Supreme power Hyperion
* Miles Morales (Ultimate Earth)
* A bunch of MC2 people: Mainframe, American Dream, Thunderstrike, Stinger, Darkdevil
* 1602 Matt Murdoch (?)
* Ken Connell (Yay!) and Nightmask from New Universe
* Horus from Forever Yesterday (see New Warriors Volume 1)
* Hulking
* Captain America from the Mangaverse
* FalCap, iPhone-Style Iron Man from Earth 616
* Ultimate Captain Marvel
* St George and Dr. Zero from Shadowline (old school!!!)
* As noted in a previous post, Obnoxio the Clown
* New Thor (Frigga, apparently)
* Crimson Dynamo (why, I don't know)
* Arno Stark Iron Man from 2025
* Ghost Rider 2099 (haven't seen him in years)
* A Carol Danvers Ms. Marvel (?)


3 characters I can't identify yet:
* The Thor just below Thor Odinson, and just above real Cap. His hammer design is different than Thor Odinson. It's not 1950s Thor. I can't place him yet.
* The guy fighting Earth-X Balck Panther. he looks REALLY familiar, but I don't remember who he is.
* The person just above Horus and St. George -- is that Victor Guillermos from Powerline?

I'm actually excited about this because I get to see real Star Brand, and I always loved the MC2 characters. I hope they toss Spider-Girl in the storyline somewhere.

I think that's actually original Kree uniform Mar-Vell.

Yeah, I think you're right. Old-school Kree uniformed Mar-Vell.

I'm wondering: is this some kind of attempt to "clean up" the Marvel Universe, a la "Crisis On Infinite Earths"? If they end the current Avengers storyline with a massive amount of incursions, then there would be numerous version of these characters battling for which Earth survives.

makes sense that it will be a multiverse crossover story.....that's what the entire Avengers books since Ultron has been dealing with

I'm thinking instead of a merger of worlds, we'll get certain alt heroes replacing other heroes.

Like current 616 Tony dies and is replaced by Classic Tony.
Or maybe some end up being refugee's... something like that.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. That's kind of how COIE ended, except nobody remembered their past continuity. Honestly, as screwed up as everything's become in Marvel over the past 2 years, I'd be happy with a merger where some 616 characters are replaced with other versions, everyone remembers who they are, and they have to start trusting each other and building relationships and teams again.
