MARVEL UNIVERSE TO JUMP FORWARD EIGHT MONTHS IN WAKE OF "SECRET WARS"
Marvel Comics continued to roll out their post-"Secret Wars" plans today, building on the recent revelations about the shape of the Marvel Universe to come.
On Marvel.com, Executive Editor Tom Brevoort revealed that the entire Marvel line will jump forward eight months in time after Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic's event wraps with its eighth issue.
“In the same way that events jumped forward in time eight months in 'Avengers' and 'New Avengers' during the lead-up to Secret Wars, so too when we enter the new Marvel Universe eight months will have passed for all of the characters as well," he said. "This provides our creators, even apart from Secret Wars, to drop into exciting new situations and status quos on the fly. So look for surprises and mysteries and changes galore as series resume in the new MU."
Brevoort went on to confirm the report CBR had up over the weekend from Atlantic City Boardwalk Con that among other elements, the superhero team A-Force, the villain Maestro, Mrs. Deadpool's Howling Commandos and the Weirdworld locale will all carry over into the Marvel Universe proper moving forward.
"As we’ve been saying, the building blocks of the new MU are being established throughout the various Secret Wars titles, with every series contributing something to the new MU -- whether that something is a character, a place, an environment, an object, a status quo, or any other thing that you might think of," he explained.
