Everything kicks off in September with Marvel Legacy #1, a 50-page one-shot from writer Jason Aaron and artist Esad Ribic that promises to tell the "startling origin of the Marvel Universe," and underscore how "it's all connected." The issue will also introduce the Avengers of 1,000,000 B.C.


To help you keep track of wave after wave of Marvel Legacy announcements, we've collected all of the solicitation details released so far. We'll update has more information becomes available, so keep checking back.

The Mighty Thor: Death of the Mighty Thor


  • Written by Jason Aaron
  • Penciled by Russell Dauterman, Walter Simonson, Olivier Coipel, Chris Burnham, James Harren and more
  • Although the title of the arc, as well as one of its covers, references The Death of Captain Marvel, writer Jason Aaron isn't saying how much influence the 1982 graphic novel has on The Mighty Thor. “That’s obviously a powerful book and a huge part of Marvel history, but I’m afraid you’ll just have to wait to see whether or not our story shares anything with that one,” he told Nerdist. “I will just say that I’ve always been telling a very specific story with Jane, and I’ve known for a while where that was headed.”


Spirits of Vengeance: War at the Gates of Hell


  • Written by Victor Gischler
  • Penciled by David Baldeon
  • Ghost Rider, aka Johnny Blaze, is joined by Blade, Daimon Hellstrom and Satana. “I think these are great characters that need to be showcased," Gischler told Nerdist. "If the book feeds an appetite for 90s nostalgia then great, but you’re not going to be left out if you missed the 90s. If these characters are brand new to you, you’re still in for a wild ride.”

U.S. Avengers: Cannonball Run


  • Written by Al Ewing
  • Penciled by Paco Diaz
