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)

NYCC Extinction Teaser

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)

NYCC Descent Teaser

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?

Prediction: Deadpool

NYCC Frenemies Teaser

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

NYCC Trial Teaser

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

NYCC Judgement Teaser

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

NYCC Mindbubble Teaser

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?

NYCC Rad Teaser

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

NYCC The End Teaser

THE END by Dan Slott and Giuseppe Camuncoli

This has to be…

Prediction: The end of Superior Spider-Man!

NYCC Global Teaser

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

NYCC Higher Teaser

HIGHER by Kelly Sue Deconnick and David Lopez

Please, Please, Please!

Prediction: A new Captain Marvel story arc!
