So apparently this is going to happen.

In the same way that events jumped forward in time eight months in 'Avengers' and 'New Avengers' during the lead-up to Secret Wars, so too when we enter the new Marvel Universe eight months will have passed for all of the characters as well. This provides our creators, even apart from Secret Wars, to drop into exciting new situations and status quos on the fly. So look for surprises and mysteries and changes galore as series resume in the new MU.


Lazy way to reboot without rebooting? Didn't really pan out for DC when they did the One Year Later thing after Infinite Crisis, not sure how this is going to be any different.

How about when DC did Five Years Later (ie: New 52 #1s)? It's been four years and some things are STILL uncertain. I just hope Marvel gave their writers more freedom to write.

Time skips are a pain, though. Some writers will stretch the reveals out for 12 months, if not more. Unless they're Jeph Loeb or Bendis, then it will be even longer!

Everyone: "Peter Quill, how did you return but Nova didn't?"
Starlord: "I'll tell you IN TWO YEARS!"

Everyone: "Where did Red Hulk come from?"
Jeph Loeb: "I WILL LET GREG PAK EXPLAIN IN TWO YEARS! HULK SMASH!"

Yeah, the mystery/reveal in current longform comics can be excruciating at times.

I was kinda surprised that the new Thor's identity only took 8 issues to come to light. Looks like the "unworthy whisper" is gonna drag on for a bit longer though.

I read that Battleworld will continue to exist even after this event, so not quite sure how they'll manage that one. When we return back to "Normal" will there still be alternative universes as well?
