Marvel Comics Reboot Coming This Fall

Big changes are coming to Marvel Comics. According to recent reports by USA Today and Mashable, the world's largest comic book company will relaunch its comics later this fall. This move aims to attract both new and old fans alike, introducing a unique spin on the Marvel comics we all know and love. So, what kind of changes can you expect to see in the upcoming Marvel Comics reboot?

Marvel will reportedly relaunch all of its superhero line comics, with 55 to 60 No. 1 issues. These issues will include popular characters like Iron Man, Spider-Man, Captain America, The Hulk, Ant-Man, Black Panther, Thor, Spider-Woman, Miles Morales, Sam Wilson, Agent Coulson, Vision, and more, all of whom will pay "important roles" in the reboot. What makes this reboot unique, however, is that it will include new story arcs for all of these characters, as well as new supporting characters like Red Wolf, who is a relatively new Native American superhero that Marvel introduced in the 1970s.

Take Captain America's story, for instance. While Marvel has yet to reveal details about Steve Rodgers/Captain America's story in the upcoming comics reboot, reports indicate that it will center around an "aging" Captain America. Perhaps Rodgers has lost his will to fight, or maybe he no longer has the physical strength to stand up to those who oppress. Marvel also hinted that the incarnation of Wolverine will be a female character. That's sure to cause some commotion, but we're excited and looking forward to it!

You can also expect to see two version of Spider-Man being released. And then there's Fantastic Four, which is supposed to be a part of the Guardians of the Galaxy story arc.

"The "All-New All-Different Marvel" initiative involves the company's best and brightest writers, including Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron, G. Willow Wilson, Mark Waid, Dan Slott, Charles Soule and Jeff Lemire, plus newer faces as well — UFC fighter and former pro wrestler CM Punk is penning a book starring Drax of Guardians of the Galaxy, and Alonso says to expect novelists and a next generation of talent exhibiting 'diversity in terms of gender and ethnicity.' wrote USA Today.

As you can see, there's a whole bunch of changes coming to Marvel Comics, so keep your eyes peeled this fall for the first issues to hit shelves.
