It seems like 2018 will be a fresh new era for Marvel Comics! As the publisher announced a refresh for these iconic superheroes in the comic print. New series, creative teams and directions all push for a fresh coat of paint in the industry.


As Marvel Comics editor in chief, C.B. Cebulksi and Joe Quesada give insight into the upcoming update in the lineup - with Marvel telling ComiConverse more will be revealed later in the day and coming weeks. “I’ve never seen more enthusiasm and more excitement for where Marvel is going this year,” Cebulski said inside the Marvel offices, showing multiple incarnations of classic superheroes including Captain America, Iron Man and Thor. The editor explained how to the change will be on the same level of 2012’s Marvel Now! relaunch.

These changes make sense, with Cebulski himself new in his role after replacing Axel Alonso in full 2017. Bringing sweeping changes across the board, with Brian Micheal Bendis leaving the company for DC comics. A new dose of writers, artists and editors is a perfect idea for the ongoing Marvel comics.


Alongside these changes, IGN revealed a new Avengers #1 which will be kicking off in May. Avengers will be written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Eid McGuinness and will push for 18 volume series.

The team will feature Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man - paying homage to the classic run - as well as the Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider and Jennifer Walter’s Hulk. Avengers is looking insane! And it seems like Marvel is pushing for a full-on refresh instead of the confusing Marvel Legacy.
