Ever since the New York Comic-Con, Marvel have been teasing some kind of big event happening in Summer 2015.

It started with Secret Wars

Image

Then they announced Civil War

Image

Then Planet Hulk

Image

Then X-Men: Years of Future Past

Image

Then Armour Wars

Image

Then it was Age of Ultron vs Marvel Zombies

Image

Then it was House of M

Image

And now The Infinity Gauntlet

Image

None of these seem to be exact re-runs of the previous events. The Secret Wars event cover (painted by Alex Ross) has multiple versions of characters like Cap, Thor & Iron Man fighting other versions of themselves, while also featuring alternate universe characters like Miles Morales, American Dream & Iron Man 2020.

The Civil War tease seems close to the original, with Cap & an older suited Iron Man fighting over an armoured Spidey

Planet Hulk seems to be exactly that - a planet of Hulks fighting Devil Dinosaur!! Oh, and Cap wielding a battle axe?!? Take a close look at the bottom left green Hulk(ster), though! lol

X-Men: Years of Future Past obviously changes the name of the classic series, but a lot of the ideas seem to still be the same.

Armour Wars has as you would expect a lot of Iron Man armour fighting - including a suit people are calling "Galactus Armour"

Age of Ultron Vs Marvel Zombies is a crazy mashup, so really doesn't bear any relation to the original event of either series

House of M features Wolverine. They wouldn't use this to bring him back already, would they? But as well as Mutants that featured in the arc, there are non-mutant characters like Spidey, Hulk & DareDevil in the mix

And finally, there is the Infinity Gauntlet cover, that features Star-Lord, Thanos & a family of Nova's (but no Richard Nova).

So what gives? I've seen a lot of theories that this is going to be Secret Wars between all these different Universes - so House of M universe vs Infinity Gauntlet universe for instance, kind of like Marvel's own Crisis on Infinite Earths.

But is that the case? And is this one event too far??

Seems like that's what they're going for. It's Hickman's final Avengers storyline so some kind of mash up of all the realities like he's been playing with in the ongoing titles would make sense.

Excited for Civil War and Infinity Gauntlet however...please...Marvel....make the story lines mean something and have SOMETHING stick...if they die...stay dead!

By the way, the original Civil War is one of my favs and seems to be one of the only story lines that continue to be referenced and may just be seen on the big screen soon...

Today's reveal is Old Man Logan:

Can't seem to post the pic from my iPad, so click here instead

Gorgeous art (done by the original series artist, Steve McNiven) but I'm assuming this isn't a hint that Logan will return by the Summer next year. Maybe. ;)

I'm wondering if it will be animated versions of the old events, along with new events. Like Years of Future Past, will be an X event, Age of Ultron vs Marvel Zombies will spin out of What If... Age of Ultron...

Thank you Spaced, I hadn't gotten around to posting the rest of them yet!

The End seems to take place before Secret Wars so......reboot? Amalgamation?

Reboot seems to be a strong favourite among a number of fans but I can't see it myself. Probably all the multiverses collapsing into one that will just end up being the 616 with a few popular alt universe characters added.

Ah right.

Kind of makes sense - it's a continuation of what the Beyonder essentially did in the first Secret War.

Interesting.
