Marvel revealed today eight new titles for the coming winter that they’re referring to as “tentpole” titles — or titles that “will shape the future of the Marvel Universe in the months to come.”
Marvel announced earlier this month plans to reveal several new projects today in celebration of their birthday — so, Happy Birthday, Marvel!
The projects range from event titles to new ones featuring some characters you’ll soon see on Disney+.
Here’s the lowdown on the eight titles:
Devil’s Reign, coming in December, will pit the Kingpin against Marvel’s heroes in all-out war.
Having set the stage in their Eisner-nominated Daredevil epic, Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto’s far-reaching crossover event finds Mayor Fisk outlawing all Super Heroes in New York and unleashing intel on all their dark secrets, while pitting Daredevil, Elektra, Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, and many more against his Thunderbolt agents. But in the end…Who Will Reign?
Avengers Forever, which shares a title with the popular maxi-series from several years ago, also arrives in December, from Jason Aaron and Aaron Kuder.
Marvel Comics’ Avengers Forever pulls together archeologist Tony Stark, AKA the Invincible Ant-Man, and Avengers from across the multiverse to bring order to timelines where ‘hope’ is a four letter word.
Jason Aaron and Aaron Kuder present an all-new series that will redefine the Avengers as…the Multiverse’s Mightiest Heroes.
Timeless will feature Kang in story by Jed MacKay, Kev Walker, Joe Bennett and Mark Bagley.
When a threatening new timeline emerges, Kang the Conqueror must fight his way through the coming year to protect the main 616 timeline he’s worked centuries to solidify as his own. Jed MacKay, Kev Walker, Joe Bennett, Mark Bagley, and more provide a first look at what’s coming to the Marvel Universe in 2022 in a story that will prove…the Future is Timeless.
In true Wolverine fashion, he’s getting TWO new titles, by Benjamin Percy, Joshua Cassara and Federico Vicentini:
House of X and Powers of X ushered in the First Krakoan Age of the X-Men. Now, Marvel Comics’ X Lives of Wolverine and X Deaths of Wolverine will test ‘the best there is at what he does’ before any mutant can survive to the Second Krakoan Age.
Benjamin Percy, Joshua Cassara, and Federico Vicentini tell two interlocked tales about what happens to Wolverine when…His Pasts Meet His Future.
In Janaury look for a new She-Hulk title by Rainbow Rowell and Roge Antonio — which is no surprise given that she’s got a Disney+ show in development. I’m also glad to see that her “rage-filled” days are behind her.
Marvel Comics’ She-Hulk, from Rainbow Rowell and Rogê Antônio, throws the book at Jennifer Walters as she tries to put her rage-filled days behind her and return to practicing law in defense of the innocent.
But when a friend from her past comes knocking with a mystery she can’t resist, She-Hulk gets…Back To Bashing.
The Fantastic Four take center stage in Fantastic Four: Reckoning War by Dan Slott, Carlos Pacheco and Rachael Stott.
Dan Slott is joined by Carlos Pacheco and Rachael Stott for Marvel Comics’ Fantastic Four: Reckoning War, an epic saga over 15 years in the making.
The original secret war of the Marvel Universe has been reignited and every living being in reality is in danger, for we are finally at…Our Day Of Reckoning.
Finnally, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur return in a new series in February, but an unrevealed creative team.
Lunella Lafayette and her lovable 20-foot dinosaur are BACK in Marvel Comics’ Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur!
But what shape will their partnership take in this exciting new era? Keep your eyes peeled in the coming months for more news about the next adventure of the biggest brain in the world that will send dino-sized shockwaves throughout the Marvel Universe. In 2022, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur will bring new meaning to the term “Marvel Team-Up” in a tale that promises to…Shake Your World.
