right now, i'm looking at the new marvel and has no clue who are this altenate heroes we see.
thor is a woman, cap is a former bird, hulk is a kid, spiderman is a millioner, the thing is a gardian of the galaxy exc...
it all seems like a tie in to a big event but it's IN the universe.
i think marvel should make a CLASSIC MARVEL imprint with the orginal heroes: steve rogers as cap, thor as THOR, banner as hulk, Fantastic four. x-men with a heroic Cyclops and a relatevly young wolverine and others.
this way we will have the old and the new to choose from, and marvel will get even more money. everybody wins.
what do you say?

Not really. It's far too niche and that makes it weaker.

As for the characters you list:
- Thor is Jane Foster, a known
- Cap is Sam Wilson, a known
- Hulk is Amadeus Cho, a known
- Spidey is still Peter Parker, just rich
- and Thing is still same ole Ben Grimm.

But I do want my heroes to be heroic. Marvel needs to stop turning them into bastards in the name of "edgy."

I think that what Marvel is really doing is taking a page out of the 90s. The goal is not to replace any characters, but rather to spin the the replacements off into their own book when the status quo returns, and then hopefully have two big bumps in sales.


So I guess, If I'm right then the need for a new imprint is pretty unnecessary.

yea, sure i know the replacments, but not as heroes but as supporting charecters! and it's aBIG difference.
for all intent and purpose it's a new heroes and no "OUR" heroes.

I might not like what's being done with those characters, but I don't think an imprint is the solution. Anything outside of the main continuity really doesn't get much chance to shine. It relegates them to also-rans.

DC's mainstream is always floundering around and looking for another reboot, and the readership has learned to wait for the next reboot as well. A nice classic imprint would be welcome from them.

Marvel's mainstream story tends to have more direction and momentum. People follow it and want it to go in interesting directions. Also, the Ultimate Universe proved, to me at least, that Marvel can't handle multiple Universes, because the Ultimate titles were of very high quality and very fun reads and then out of the blue the powers that be just seemed to stop caring about them. I was around for the 80's New Universe titles as well, Marvel's previous attempt at an alternate continuity, and that was also unsuccessful.
