Marvel Comics Announces Return Of Wolverine & More

MarvelMarvel's

MarvelMarvel's"Secret Empire #1

Well, now they've just confirmed that indeed that's exactly what's happening. "They really matter. This isn't some alternate reality story or some time-travel story", Alonso explained. Banner's dead! Logan's dead!

The event will consist of 10 issues that team the old heroes with the new, running from June to September. A lot of these won't be tough to pull off, like Hawkeyes Clint Barton and Kate Bishop, or Spider-Men Peter Parker and Miles Morales, who all co-exist and have teamed up before. Some, like Carol Danvers and Mar-Vell, or Young Carol and Kamala Khan, will require some comic book tomfoolery.

Marvel Comics recently teased "Generations" featuring the original and replacement characters from the Marvel comics universe.

Ten contemporary Marvel heroes - including Ms. Marvel, Ironheart and the the all-new Wolverine - will team up with their predecessors as part of the three-month storyline Generations, it was revealed Friday morning, despite the fact that some of those predecessors are dead in current comic book continuity.

According to Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso, these stories will have big impacts going forward on the younger generation of characters.

"How did we do this is part of the fun", he said.

"[But] the answer might be different for each character", he continued.

It sounds like this is going to involve some pretty major shake-ups for the Marvel Universe either way.

An even bigger surprise is the move to bring Mar-Vell, the original (to this publisher, anyway) Captain Marvel, back to life.

What do you think of the return of some of these long gone Marvel heroes?

Fans have always been expecting to see Wolverine and The Hulk back - and other characters, like Captain America and Thor, had status quo changes that also seemed pretty temporary. What about the rest?

"We are looking to honor the legacy of the entire universe, so we are taking the iconic legacy heroes and pairing them with the new class", Alonso told ABC News about the storyline. However, I'd be lying if I weren't a little apprehensive.
