Looks like they're gearing up for Marvel NOW! by cancelling 9 titles.
Say good-bye to: Captain America, Fantastic Four, FF, Incredible Hulk, Invincible Iron Man, New Mutants, The Mighty Thor, Uncanny X-Men
and X-Men Legacy
Of course, we can assume most of these are coming back via Marvel NOW! with brand new #1's and new creative teams. And in some cases, such as FF
and Fantastic Four
, it makes sense since Hickman is leaving the books.
Restarting the book because the creative team is changing is silly.
I think it makes a certain amount of sense. If someone new is going to be coming in and changing things around, you might as well start the whole thing fresh. And I wonder if perhaps they think if they let the numbering get to high it'll scare people away.
