Some interesting (to me) Marvel-related info coming out of NYCC.Christos Gage is the new writer for X-Men: Legacy
and he's adding Cannonball, Husk, and Iceman to the roster that was already previewed during the Regenesis teasers. I am definitely picking up this book now.The Scarlet Spider is back
but it's not going to be Ben Reilly. We'll have to see what Chris Yost comes up with for this new character whose identity hasn't been revealed yet. This could be good. I didn't read Spider Island and I haven't cared about the Spider-verse in a while but I might pick up this book if the character is solid and interesting.The Runaways will be in a couple upcoming issues of Avengers Academy
which makes me very happy. Also, X-23 will be a full-time member of Avengers Academy starting I believe at the beginning of the new year. Seriously, if you are reading a current teen superhero book and it is not Avengers Academy then you are depriving yourself of something awesome.It's Coming
and I think the only mystery here is whether or not "it" will actually be who we all think/hope "she" is. Ugh, how many times have you teased us with this bullshit, Marvel? Do I think Jean Grey is an awesome character? No but I think she's better than Emma Frost and definitely better than Hope and her messiah nonsense. Time will tell if this works or not.
Other things of note. Storm will be joining the Avengers. Rick Remender will be writing Secret Avengers at some point in the future. The Thunderbolts are still bouncing around time and will face off against the original Thunderbolt team. Lots of interesting things going on with Marvel. I will do a post later about the DC stuff that will tie-in to my thoughts on the new 52.
