Another day, another teaser! Last time, we tried to decipher DC’s New 52 Multiverse (each of those are separate links — check them out!) and we did a pretty decent job, of course thanks to help from you guys! At New York Comic Con, Marvel has now released the above teaser (by Alex Ross) for “Secret Wars”, the publisher’s 2015 event in the wake of the current multiverse-spanning arcs in Avengers and New Avengers. Headed by current Avengers writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Esad Ribic, the event has been clearly marked as a MOICHANDIZING EXTRAVAGANZA, to quote Dan Buckley (Marvel President) — “we’re going to be extending this in a year-long program into 2016 with our merchandising partners, digital partners and other partners.” Already listed are Hasbro, Gentle Giant, and Hot Topic — get ready for the action figures, guys and gals!
Whereas the original 1984 Secret Wars was about heroes and villains from the main Marvel Earth (called Marvel-616), this teaser promo gives us a clue that this new Secret Wars really is a direct result of the current Avengers storyline — a crossover of
Multiversity multiple universal proportions.
SOOOOO for this installment of Lets Try To Figure Out What We’ve Got Here, let’s try to figure out WHO we’ve got here! As always, we’re more than willing to be wrong — please comment below with your input! As was said at the reveal, “None of it is random and none of it is brand new.”
