Quote:The Return of Ben Reilly: http://www.newsarama.com/comics/090620-ben-reilly.html
Quote:They bring back Reilly but no return of Gwen Stacy's clone? Booooooooo!!!!!
Quote:Ares gets his own mini, but I don't care.
Quote:Bendis added that there's a new Wanda (Scarlet Witch) story coming next year. We can only hope. We were promised Wanda in MIGHTY and got hosed. We also were promised a Heinberg Wanda story but no sign of that one, either.
Quote:Dark Reign: The List - a series of one-shots starting in September, and featuring Osborn taking on the heroes from the â€œIron Patriot Actsâ€ teaser image. The eight specials announced at Heroes Con and simultaneously at Wizard World: Philly are:
Quote:Avengers - by Brian Michael Bendis and Marko Djurdjevic
Uncanny X-Men - by Matt Fraction and Alan Davis
Secret Warriors - by Jonathan Hickman and Ed McGuniness
Punisher - by Rick Remender and John Romita Jr. http://www.newsarama.com/comics/090621-the-list-punisher.html
Daredevil - by Andy Diggle and Billy Tan
Wolverine - by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic
Hulk - by Greg Pak and Ben Oliver http://www.newsarama.com/comics/090621-the-list-hulk.html
Amazing Spider-Man - by Dan Slott and Adam Kubert
Quote:This is Norman fresh from the end of X-Men/Dark Avengers, Bendis said.
Quote:â€œHeâ€™s energized,â€ Fraction said, â€œTo put it mildly, and he says to Hawkeye/Bullseye and says, â€˜Weâ€™re just getting started.â€™
Quote:Bendis added that the specials kick off when Osborn takes a hard look at the Marvel Universe and questions why certain heroes are still alive and operating. The story of the specials kicks off in Avengers, which features the climax of the Clint Barton/Osborn story when Barton makes a decision to take care of Norman Osborn, and itâ€™s â€œpretty rough,â€ Bendis said, noting, â€œIt goes a lot farther than you may think it will.â€
Quote:I will get the Avengers, Secret Warriors and likely the Daredevil and Punisher ones.
Quote:Here's more: http://www.newsarama.com/comics/060921-Bendis-TheList.html
Quote:Who was the shadow in the Dark Reign one shot which featured the meeting of Osborn and the other villains? Bendis promised that readers will find out in December.
Quote:Will Echo return soon? Bendis said that she will be featured in Spider-Woman.
Quote:I guess it wasn't the Sentry. And we can only hope SPIDER-WOMAN will finally come out in September, but it's nice to see Echo being used somewhere. Since I like the character, I was wondering what happened to her.
Quote:Nick Fury's training of Alexander, Ares' son will be addressed in Dark Avengers #9 and Secret Warriors #10. â€œAres and Nick Fury have some words,â€ Bendis said.
Quote:Should be interesting.
Quote:More about NOMAD: http://www.newsarama.com/comics/090621-heroes-nomad.html
Quote:Bah, who cares? Not me.
Quote:And the new Thunderbolts by Rick Remender: http://www.newsarama.com/comics/090621-heroes-nomad.html
Quote:Main Dark Reign article:
I've been reading the articles with interest. I am not interested in the return of the Marvel Zombies so will be saving money by not buying that.
I am getting sick and fed up with how much Marvel are milking Dark Reign. How many more one-shots and mini-series can they keep churning out? I won't be buying any of "The List" one-shots or the Ares mini either, so that's more money saved. I'm doing really well so far.
Haven't cared for Spider-Man since OMD/BND so bringing back "Ben Reilly" and returning to the Clone Saga will have to pass me by I'm afraid (yay, even more money saved).
I will probably get the NOMAD: Girl without a World mini as I liked Heroes Reborn for the most part and it will be interesting to see how she fares in the mainstream Marvel Universe.
Looking at the X-Men titles, I might buy the Psylocke mini, and am interested with the X-Babies (but that's only because of the Star Comics characters from the 80's - nostalgia... a very expensive thing).
As for bringing Iron Fist and Luke Cage into the Thunderbolts... WHAT???!!! This seems to go against everything that's been done in continuity for years (but then, since when has Marvel cared about continuity, it's been so long I forget).
So all in all, more money in my pocket and less in Marvel's.
