The New York Comic-Con will be happening this Friday and Marvel has released a ton of promos for new NOW! Titles. Here are some of my predictions for new books (and some rebrands)
EXTINCTION by Sam Humphries and Andre Araujo
Ok, this one is a little vague but kind of one the nose a bit (if that makes sense) Sam Humphries is currently writing Uncanny X-Force and the font used in this promo is purple and gold so I’m going to go with a Psylocke lead X-Men team with a more traditional roster. The X-Men are lacking a true Extinction team like they had in Uncanny, and I could definitely see Psylocke helping both Wolverine and Cyclops if the situation demands it. I wouldn’t mind seeing a team consisting of; Psylocke, Colossus, Domino and X-23.
Prediction: Uncanny X-Force (Leader Psylocke with new team members)
DESCENT by Dennis Hopeless and Kev Walker
This one is a bit more difficult to pin down; Hopeless is currently writing Cable and the X-Force and Avengers Academy. If we go with the actual word in the promo “DESCENT” could be referring to many different characters but it’s red and black color could be linked to Deadpool. With Gerry Dugan writing NOVA now, maybe Hopeless is coming in to write a new Deadpool story?
FRENEMIES by Ales Kot and Michael Walsh
Not a lot to go on this one, but I’d like to make a fun selection. I’m going with Cable/Deadpool because they are both awesome!
Prediction: Cable/Deadpool team-up book
TRIAL by Brian Michael Bendis and Stuart Immonen
This could only be about one person.
Prediction: Cyclops in a new story arc involving All New/Uncanny/Wolverine and the X-Men
JUDGMENT by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli
This will probably tie into the TRIAL promo, and I believe both will involve the X-Men.
Prediction: story arc involving the X-Men
MINDBUBBLE by Rick Remender, Pascal Alixe, Nic Klein
Remender is a wildcard, but MINDBUBBLE sounds like it may have something to do with Charles Xavier and family.
Prediction: A new arc in Uncanny Avengers involving Charles Xavier, or maybe a sibling?
RAD! by Dan Slott and Michael Allred
Odd word selection, but it may be a dead giveaway along with the color of font. Along with the resurgence of cosmic books…
Prediction: A new Silver Surfer ongoing
THE END by Dan Slott and Giuseppe Camuncoli
This has to be…
Prediction: The end of Superior Spider-Man!
GLOBAL by Jonathan Hickman, Nick Spencer and Stefano Caselli
Not a new book, but a new arc and jumping on point.
Prediction: A new Avengers arc
HIGHER by Kelly Sue Deconnick and David Lopez
Please, Please, Please!
Prediction: A new Captain Marvel story arc!
