Star-Lady Revealed, “Secret Wars” Ends, “All-New, All-Different Marvel” Begins

Like ships passing in the night, “Secret Wars” concludes just as “All-New, All-Different Marvel” establishes itself this October. As the currently-running mega event wraps up this fall, it will overlap with the launch of almost two dozen new series set post-Battleworld — and a few new clues about Marvel’s upcoming status quo can be found in the October solicitation text.

“All-New, All-Different Marvel” Arrives in Marvel’s Complete October 2015 Solicitations

  • The solicitation for “Guardians of the Galaxy” #1 by Brian Michael Bendis and Valerio Schiti confirms that the new Star-Lord — or Star-Lady, according to the text — is indeed Kitty Pryde. Star-Lord has left the team in order to become the new emperor of the Spartax. When last we saw Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde just prior to “Secret Wars,” they were engaged.
  • Dan Slott and Giuseppe Camuncoli’s “Amazing Spider-Man” #1-2 teases that Spider-Man has “gone global” following the runaway success of Parker Industries. Spider-Man will serve as Peter Parker’s “bodyguard,” similar to the classic Iron Man set up. The first issue will pit Peter’s “bodyguard” against Zodiac.
  • The new “Spider-Gwen” #1 from Jason Latour and Robbi Rodriguez will feature the return of the thought-dead Lizard and see the introduction of Earth-65’s Osborns.
  • In addition to the main story from Charles Soule and Steve McNiven, “Uncanny Inhumans” #1 will also feature a bonus story written by Soule and featuring art from Brandon Peterson.
  • Marvel will dust off their Point One initiative to herald in their new status quo; “All-New, All-Different Marvel Point One” #1 promises to be the “one-stop entry point to the changes and mysteries that have developed” in the eight months in continuity following “Secret Wars.” Stories leading into “Daredevil,” “Carnage,” Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and “Contest of Champions” will be included in the book. The “Point One” solicitation also confirms that there are more Marvel titles that have yet to be announced; in addition to those four series, stories leading up to two “CLASSIFIED” series are listed in the roll call of titles.

  • The Avengers line will also get an introductory issue in “Avengers” #0 written by Mark Waid, James Robinson, G. Willow Wilson, Al Ewing and Gerry Duggan with art by Mahmud Asrar, Leonard Kirk, Gerardo Sandoval, Kenneth Rocafort, Ryan Stegman and Victor Ibanez. The issue teases that someone is “carefully studying the movements” of the various Avengers teams, and they could be friend or foe. The series lead-ins included in the #0 issue will be for “All-New, All-Different Avengers,” “Squadron Supreme,” “A-Force,” “New Avengers,” “Ultimates” and “Uncanny Avengers.”
  • Gerry Duggan and Phil Noto’s first two issues of “Chewbacca” will arrive in October and find the Wookiee stranded on an Imperial occupied planet and trying to get back to the rebellion.
  • “Blade” #1 from Tim Seeley and Logan Faerber will also debut, although no solicitation text is included with the issue. Other series debuting this month include “Invincible Iron Man,” “Astonishing Ant-Man,” “Doctor Strange,” “Extraordinary X-Men,” “Howling Commandos of S.H.I.E.L.D.” “Karnak” “Captain America: Sam Wilson,” “Spider-Man 2099,” “Unbeatable Squirrel Girl,” “Uncanny Avengers,” and the quintet of “What If? Infinity” one-shots.
  • While it seems like all the “Secret Wars” series will most likely wrap up this month along with the main series, only a few allude to that fact in the solicits: “Siege,” “Thors,” “Where Monsters Dwell,” “Civil War,” “Weirdworld,” “Spider-Island” and “Squadron Sinister.”

  • Angela goes on the hunt for Serah’s soul in “1602 Witch Hunter Angela” #4, which sounds a bit like what the warrior’s status quo will be when she emerges from “Secret Wars” in her new series. “Angela: Queen of Hel” debuts in October as well, with Angela going to Hel to reclaim her companion Sera.
  • Howard Chaykin teams up with writer Mark Waid for “S.H.I.E.L.D.” #11, and Chaykin’s bringing his creation Dominic Fortune with him. Coulson’s team resurrects the adventurer in order to defeat an enemy, but that assistance comes with a price.
  • “Groot” #5 will see the comic book introduction of the breakout movie character of 2014 — Baby Groot.
