That is not very likely given how highly sought after Joe Mad is at Marvel that they even gave him Ultimates 3 with Loeb.

I just read an interview that said the Mad arc was originally meant for Avenging Spidey then they moved it over here.

Alternate universe, possible future, something like that. But whatever it is anything that has been delayed and shuffled as much as it has pretty much can't end up mattering much in the end.

I prefer to stay away from Avengers-era Bendis and stay happily with X-Men-era Bendis.

Well Spider-Man apparently or at lest seeming to be the real Peter Parker is kind of hinting at that.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Nah, there is going to be a Superior Spider-Man AU crossover issue, do it's definitely Otto.

As for it being an alternate reality, or more likely a reality that will be reset by the end of the story, I assumed that as soon as I heard the name of the story. "Age of Apokolips", "Age of X", "Age of Ultron". All alternate reality re-sets.

However, there is already some slight continuity disconnect swith Thor being dead. In the Avengers arc where Bendis set all of this up, it was continuing from the Avengers Next animated movie, in which we met Thor's daughter, and found out that Thor is still alive in Asgard. And Emma's mental powers are no longer on the fritz for some reason.

Anyone care to take a guess at AoU's unguessable ending?

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Keep in mind as I've said before that Bendis wrote Age of Ultron at least two years ago...that is why Peter is not Otto (although the tie in will feature Otto-Peter), Carol is still Ms. Marvel, etc. Bendis probably hasn't updated his script since he finished them.

-Avengers #8
-Captain America #5
-Captain Marvel #11
-Daredevil #24
-Deadpool #6
-Incredible Hulk #5
-New Avengers #4
-Superior Spider-Man #6
-Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #21

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

If Age of Ultron was written two years ago, and appears to take place in that continuity point, then doesn't that mean it won't have ANY consequences because we're already in a post-AU era? The only thing I can think of is, has Hank Pym or Janet appeared in any comics since "Marvel NOW"?

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Bendis has said that it will have "major consequences and has a jaw dropping ending that only five people know".

I never said it wouldn't have any impact on current continuity...but it is mostly self-contained. This is why Marvel probably made it an event series so that it would, and gave it additional tie-in series (like the Superior Spider-Man) one.

Bendis returned Janet in his last Avengers arc...but I don't think she has appeared in any series yet, doesn't mean that she won't soon though

Remember that this was originally slated for last spring or summer, but they had "Avengers Vs X-Men" as their major event book at the time, so it didn't make sense for them to have two big series out...even though they will with this and "Infinity" when it arrives in the summer time.

I've long thought this was originally meant to be the conclusion of Bendis "Avengers" run but was changed to be an event but editorial. I'm pretty sure this was first announced at SDCC 2011.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Yeah back in the day it sounded like this was the finale of Bendis' Avengers but now it exists in this weird limbo all on its own, which makes it feel less important. I read that Infinity begins right after Age of Ultron ends and they don't overlap.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Yeah I believe the Ultron War was also mentioned on Future Tony's timeline map way back in the first arc of Bendis "Avengers". This really has been long in the planning though, which is why there are several continuity inconsistencies and why most of the art work has already been completed. I believe this is also going to be a thrice monthy series?

This wouldn't be the first time Marvel just went with the continuity blips when a creative team with out of step with the rest of the MU. Avengers The Children's Crusade featured Steve Rogers as Captain America even though it tool place in the "Commander Rogers" era.
