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?
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.
