The End of the Universe as we know it

Postby Saint Kurt » Fri Jan 23, 2015 4:23 am

There's been some interesting news...

http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/01/20/the-marvel-universe-is-coming-to-an-end-in-may-2015.

http://www.newsarama.com/23276-the-marvel-universe-is-ending.html

Are just a few of the articles. I find myself wondering what the new universe will like and if it will be more tightly tied to the films.

I was actually pretty excited about this on Chat and got sort of a cold shoulder over it! Thanks for also being interested, SK!

I think the new Universe may have a feel of the films, but this has happened whenever new movies come out, regardless of the book or publisher. My biggest concerns are as follows:

-Does placing Miles as Spider-Man in the same universe as Peter Parker automatically negate his purpose/uniqueness and in terms of society's white-male-hetero-norm, isn't he automatically second rung? That's not the best message Marvel should send.

-Are we getting dead characters back? Older characters rejuvenated? So Captain American gets to be non-white for 6 months... Cool. Bit of a waste. Wolverine's dead for 7. Deadpool for less than 5. And if they eradicate Ms. Marvel (Kamala) I'll be furious.

-Combining Ult/616/Other universes sounds like a nice trick -- but what then? Why have a Marvel version of "Crisis on Infinite Earths" if your creators are going to want to spin out and try new stories later anyway?

-Jonathan Hickman, the most long-winded writer to ever write a comic is penning this. That scares me.
