I don't think so but there will definitely be some kind of big change to the MU. What do you all think?

Marvel has been playing the "New Coke" gimmick for many years "THIS EVENT WILL CHANGE EVERYTHIIIIIIIIING NO GOING BACK!!! CAPTAIN AMERICA IS DEAD! GREEN GOBLIN IS HEAD OF LAW ENFORCEMENT! CYCLOPS IS EVIL! AND DOC OCK IS SPIDER-MAN!"

Can't see a reboot, really not Marvel's style.

More likely to get a few retcons and a slew of titles relaunching with new #1s in September to try and pull some sales away from DC's annual big month.

The next time I read "Everything changes!" or "Shakes the status quo!", Peter Parker had better lose an arm.

The last event that changed everything was, to DC's credit, Flashpoint.

Well, reboot...

Code:
http://www.newsarama.com/23276-the-marvel-universe-is-ending.html


Quote:
During a live "Secret Wars Kick-Off" press event at New York City's Midtown Comics, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso and Senior Vice President of Publishing and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort confirmed that the eight-issue series Secret Wars will represent the end of both the Marvel Universe and the Ultimate Universe.

Saying that the mainstream Marvel Universe and Ultimate Universe would "smash together" during the upcoming Secret Wars crossover event, Alonso and Brevoort went on to elaborate that, by the time Secret Wars #1 hits the stands, every world in Marvel's multiverse will be destroyed, with pieces of each forming Battleworld, the staging ground for the Secret Wars storyline

Still not seeing reboot, retcons a plenty yes, but not reboot.

Either way it's the perfect jumping off point for me (not that I was buying much Marvel anyway but there you go).

like Spaced said... not seeing it as a reboot but plenty of retcons. I'm kind of expecting to see Miles Morales set up as THE Spider-Man... but, well, we'll see...

My feeling is that we won't have a reboot, but we'll see our heroes and villains in a new scenario and this will last 2 years... imho :)

Secret Wars has me curious. I'm going to check it out, and maybe stay around a bit to check out the changes.

Marvel is going to destroy itself with these ill conceived reboots. Once upon a time marvel had outstanding continuity. No longer.

So far it seems like things will change a little, especially when Marvel released the All-New, All-Different posters recently with what looks like X-23 in Wolverine garb etc. But personally I don't see it as changing completely. Maybe just trying to push old character names and identities upon newer, younger, maybe fresher individuals to gain a new audience. Up to now the main Secret Wars series has been interesting though. But it is early doors.

I've not read a single Secret Wars book, everything I hear about it leaves me uninterested. Maybe I've just got Marvel Event Fatigue.

I moved into a place of event fatigue for awhile. There have been so many mini-events and major events in both Marvel and DC that something had to give for me. I won't harp on about DC in this Marvel thread, however the New 52 broke me. It probably didn't help that I almost felt obliged to keep up with everything New 52 related, or the fact that I have been quite invested in Marvel and more of my favourite character book releases happening there. I haven't read Convergence, though I would like to, but (getting back on topic) I have been totally invested in Secret Wars.

It feels to me less like a major event but more like revisiting past favourite storylines though linked by a common thread. Almost reminds me of What If? which was another book I have always enjoyed. Not suggesting anyone else should feel the same as me, I know there are a fair few CK'ers who are disillusioned with what Marvel has become.

Personally, I'm still drinking the Marvel kool aid, happy with the Marvel U and the MCU. I don't expect drastic changes after Secret Wars, but the changes and new books announced so far will surely keep my interest going forward.
