Marvel Editor In Chief Axel Alonso dished on Marvel Legacy, which follows Secret Empire. Here are the Top 5 tidbits he revealed.
Secret Empire Fallout and Marvel Legacy Spoilers follow.
Marvel Legacy begins with Marvel Legacy #1. It is described as an “over-sized, one-shot special that’s 50 pages in all. It’s written by Jason Aaron with art by Esad Ribic and features a special, 4-panel, fold-out cover by Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada.”
The one-shot serves as a preview of the Legacy publishing initiative.
“That story functions as a preview of what’s to come. It’s chocked full of twists, surprises, Easter eggs, and let’s just say, a last-page reveal that’s probably gonna break the internet. It’s a big moment, something we continually get asked about. We are going to answer that question”
The one-shot will be accessible to older and newer readers alike.
“Easter eggs — hidden nods to longtime fans — are at the core of what “Legacy” is attempting to do. The content will be exciting for new fans, but will also pay off in a different way for hardcore fans of the Marvel Universe.
Return to classic numbering for some of Marvel’s series.”
The Legacy initiative will return to classic numbering for some established franchises.
“With ‘Legacy,’ we want to tell stories that are accessible to all, but remind readers of Marvel’s rich history. To drive that point home, a number of our titles will return to their original series numbering, and our stories will invoke that history, reminding readers of connections between characters they may have forgotten about, and ushering in the return of some big characters who’ve been missed. Above all else, we want to inject our comics with a massive dose of fun.”
No big death, but there will be resurrections; that’s plural.
“None of ‘Legacy’ hinges on the death of a major character at all,” he added. “A lot of this may hinge on some resurrections. If there ever were a time to bring back characters, it would be during the ‘Legacy’ era.”
Derivative, diverse and younger characters will co-exits with their iconic counterparts.
“”Legacy” will also finally answer some of fans’ questions about their beloved characters, including if the universe is big enough for Miles Morales and Peter Parker to both be Spider-Man. The same will be answered about whether Riri Williams and Tony Stark can both be Iron Man.”
