December will be a busy month for Marvel Comics, with the arrival of Gwenpool in the Marvel U, Mary Jane joining the cast of “Invincible Iron Man,” new series for Hellcat, Red Wolf, Rocket Raccoon & Groot and more.
But beyond those previously announced events, the House of Ideas’s just-released solicitations show that the publisher plans to close out 2015 with a bang. Here, CBR News rounds up the biggest returns, plot-twists and other happenings fans can look forward to as we prepare to head into 2016.
- The “Secret Wars” finale features a one word summary, though it’s a word that says quite a bit: “GENESIS!”Â It also comes with a Fred Hembeck variant cover pitting Deadpool against the Beyonder.
- In fact, Hembeck brings his special brand of humor to a number of series in December, including “Daredevil,” “All-New Inhumans,” “Howard the Duck” and more.
- “A-Force” #1 reveals not only that Singularity is one of the new characters to survive from “Secret Wars” into the All-New All-Different Marvel Universe, she’s also at the crux of the relaunched female character-led series.
- In addition to telling the further adventures of a green-hued Amadeus Cho, “Totally Awesome Hulk” will feature She-Hulk and a character called “Lady Hellbender.”
- Marvel pulls back the curtain on Peter Parker’s earliest days in costume with the anticipated debut of “Spidey,” featuring a teenaged webslinger.
- “Squadron Supreme” starts in December, with a different twist for the team than fans are used to. Rather than an entire team from another universe, each member of this version of the Squadron is the sole survivor of their respective Earth, and they’re out to make those responsible for their planets’ destruction pay. First up, Dr. Spectrum targets Namor.Â
- Deadpool’s Mexican counterpart, Masacre, debuts in a Spanish-language one-shot, “Deadpool #3.1: Tres Punto Uno.”
- Spider-Man has gone global, and so have some of his villains, apparently, as a “member of the Goblin family” makes their presence felt in Africa in Amazing Spider-Man #4 and #5.
- In “Spider-Gwen,” Spider-Woman guest stars, and Gwen learns the details about her 616 counterpart’s death at the hands of the Green Goblin.Â
- He may not be starring in his own series right now, but Loki makes his post-“Secret Wars” presence felt in “Mighty Thor” #2. But will it be as a friend or foe to the still-new God of Thunder?
- In a blatant play on movie synergy (seriously, it’s right there in the solicitation copy!), “Astonishing Ant-Man” features Sam Wilson/Captain America as a guest star.
- In addition to the previously announced C-3PO one-shot (which will explain the story of Threepio’s red arm), December also sees the first Annuals for “Darth Vader” and “Star Wars.” Meanwhile, the “Vader Down” crossover continues in the line’s main series.
